My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The communal areas are really clean and nice, however our room was really tiny and the bathroom had some bad smell. We talked with the lady in the reception and they cleaned it again, however the smell was still there. We were quite disappointed with the room, the bathroom... More

The Maxhotel is located in a quiet leafy residential area across a pedestrian causeway from central Lindau. That in itself makes it nice, because you're within walking or biking distance to town, but removed from some of the congestion and noise of downtown (not that Lindau is a big city but it does get busy). Train service is available either... More

This is a nice little hotel within walking distance from Lake Constance and the city centre. They serve a very nice breakfast in a friendly restaurant. The only downside was that the room was very small. We could hardly open our suitcase. The bathroom was only a 1.2m x 2.5m tube, with shower, wash basin and toilet. Nice décor. They... More

The best reason for staying at the Hotel is that you get to walk to Lindau Island across a land bridge, shared with the railway line and with magnificent views across Lake Constanz to the Austrian mountains. I feel sorry for those people with accommodation on the island that did not have the opportunity to experience this walk. The waterside... More

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.
