My wife and I spent 4 non-consecutive nights at the Barbarossa during our two week bicycle ride around Lake Constance and the greater region. The hotel is right in the middle of the city's old-town and shopping district, ten minutes away from the train station. The centuries-old building is a little worn, but let's say charming. At the same time... More

If you like a centrally located hotel where the welcome is warm and helpful rather than merely polite, where they have real coat-hangers, a bottle of water in the room that is a gift, easy wifi, crisp linen, friendly staff, large rooms and bathrooms, and an excellent breakfast, then this is the Hotel for you. Additionally, antique furniture, marble busts,... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and had a family room which consists of a separate double bed and shower in one room and a triple in the other, with another bathroom. The rooms were cute, large enough but I would fault the double bed. It was because we were only there two nights and we wanted to stay... More

The Hotel Barbarossa was our home base for a one-week cycling trip around Lake Constance, Germany. We loved the hotel. The gentlemen at the front counter were wonderfully friendly, knowledgeable and very good at their jobs. Both of them made us feel as if they knew us and we were long-time customers (which we were not!). The hotel is very... More

This is a lovely hotel with lots of character and history. My bedroom made me smile. Lovely cheerful colours and the room felt light and airy. The hotel has an outdoor patio restaurant and is situated right in the centre of a wonderful area of town with lots of shops, restaurants and cobbled stone streets. Perfect to do tourist stuff....

We loved this hotel in the charming town of Konstanz . The staff in reception are friendly, helpful and well organised. Don't forget to book a parking spot which is about 300m away . We booked half board thank goodness and we had some of the best food, tasty and beautifully presented, that we had in a fortnight. The maitre'd... More

Three of us dined here as our nearby hotel (Graf Zeppelin) was holding a function and could not cater for us. We all had a really good meal - really nice food - beautifully served by a charming, competent and friendly waitress. Will certainly come back the next time we are in Konstanz.

Last summer (on the occasion of the well-known annual flea market) we spent one night at the Hotel Barbarossa in Konstanz and enjoyed it so much that we decided to return this year for 2 nights. The historic, family-run hotel is centrally located in Konstanz, close to many shops and restaurants. Even though described as large, our two category A... More

We stayed in this hotel for one day as part of our cycling holiday and were pleased to have done so. The hotel is well-located in the centre of the town and is a good example of a historic old German hotel, really solid and good quality. The room that we had was not huge but was big enough, well-furnished... More
