First off: ignore the reviews that complain about the location. Unless you have mobility issues or are terminally lazy, the location is great. It's a leisurely 15 minutes (at most) stroll to the island, through a park/conservation area and along the banks of Lake Constance. It's a nice walk. It also means you're away from the hustle and bustle of... More

We just enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Max Hotel just on the outskirts and a 15 min walk into the city centre of Lindau. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one. The room is sparsely decorated, but clean, the bed comfortable. The buffet breakfast which is included with the reasonable room charge was... More

Want a lot of options for breakfast? Want a late checkout? Need an umbrella if it rains? Brought pets? Special requests? The friendly and attentive staff anticipates your requests and seeks ways to help you enjoy a vacation. We've stayed at four different hotels in the Lindau area and this was the best.

If you had a pessimistic disposition you could say that this hotel has no lift, no porterage, no air conditioning, is too near a railway line and is too far from the action. But actually, being away from Lindau Insel is solved by a pleasurably 15 minute walk. The railway noise was subdued in our room although we could hear... More

Great option to the tiny, old and very expensive hotels of Lindau. Short scenic walk from the island - gives you a bit more space and room to breathe. It was a steal in price compared to the uber pricey (overpriced) hotels of the small island. And great breakfast!!! Also had parking which we needed.

We loved being able to walk across the land bridge to the town. It was about a ten minute walk with great views of the lake and the island itself. The staff were great. They were friendly and helpful, especially since we speak zero German. Their recommendation for dinner at Alte Post (which I have reviewed) was outstanding. The breakfast... More

I won`t be back to this hotel and I won't recomended to anyone I appreciated. The explanation is provied by the list of "minus" and "plus" that follows. In the negative side: - Distance to the city: It is far away from the action, in the mainland, 20 minutes walking to the island. If you walk at night you'd probably... More

We stumbled upon this hotel when arriving in Lindau for an evening and were looking for a hotel. Every hotel we tried was full, as were several guesthouses. After following signs in town to the hotel, we were fortunate enough to get one of their last two rooms. Our room was EUR75, and looked like it may have been a... More

I stayed here shortly after the hotel opened back up for the start of the Spring season and was very impressed by the staff. I'm not sure if it was the owner or the manager of the hotel but the man who helped me check in and deal with my car was wonderful. The bed I had was a bit... More
