I have stayed in the Romantik Hotel Waldhorn in February 2012. This was in the middle of a cold wave that hit Central Europe and it was very very cold (down to -17C). I was travelling in business and stayed for a single night.
The hotel is located right in the main plaza of Ravensburg, opposite to the Rathaus. There’s an underground carpark on the plaza, very convenient if you arrive by car. Ravensburg itself is a small pleasant city characterized by it’s medieval looking towers.
The check in process was efficient with the front office staff able to process several guests arriving at the same time. I was given a room facing the main square on the 3rd floor. There’s no lift, so I carried my luggage upstairs – I was offered help.
The common areas of the hotel are decorated on a very traditional style, with carpets, old furniture pieces, wall hanging paintings,…All in all it conveys a cosy but also demode and sometimes stuffy feeling. The room however have been refurbished in a nice way, with wooden floors, LCD TV, modern bathroom, etc…
The most negative point of my stay is related with the internet access. It is supposed that you have free wi-fi internet. When I tried to connect, I was unable to – even if the laptop detected the network (but with no internet access). I came to the reception to figure out if I was doing something wrong, and found 4 (four!) other guests complaining about the same. The lady on the reception couldn’t solve the issue, saying the technician would only come on the next day to correct the situation. Not very helpful. This might seem as a minor issue – and for many, it is a minor issue. But if you are travelling in business in need to keep up with your email the last thing you want to come across is unreliable internet access – hence what is a minor issue for some becomes a Major problem for others.
Remaining aspects of my stay were ok. My room was properly warmed up – though other guests on the back of the hotel were complaining that heating was not enough. The bath tub has an acrylic ‘curtain’ that only protects the area closer to the shower head – not very functional as is difficult to avoid spilling the bathroom floor. The breakfast was included on the rate and was good.
As a conclusion. Would I recommend Romantik Hotel Waldhorn? Probably yes. Did I have a nice and trouble free experience? Unfortunately not due to the inability to connect to the internet. Details matter.
