I realise this is a very old hotel I believe 600 years, but I was at the point of looking for another hotel . There is a church next to the hotel and the bells chime every 15 minutes from 6 am until mid night. I think I got the Harry Potter room or broom cupboard . It was clean... More

Small cozy room with good service and a good breakfast selection. It is right smack in the middle of a plaza and in proximity to an absolutely stunningly beautiful Catholic Church (Munster Unserer Lieben Frau); Baroque Architecture. Less than a 5 minute walk to the harbor/lighthouse area.

We have booked the hotel for 3 nights. On arrival date we reached the hotel by 11:00PM and we faced a close reception. Only when looking again at the booking confirmation we noticed the check-in will close by 10:30PM. There was a signage to approach the bar for the check-in but everywhere it seemed closed. So we had to look... More

No parking at hotel, closest parking is a lot off the island. 5 euro breakfast was fresh and a typical German style. Rooms are still decorated in 1951 decor as the building is very historic to the island. Friendly service, but would not fill out a VAT form. Located right next to the churches. Dog friendly.

We didn't stay here but ate in the restaurant twice. The waiting staff spoke good English and the food was very tasty. They produced English menus for us and were happy to explain the food to us. I had some lovely Lake Constance fish and the boys had superb Weiner Schnitzel. Highly recommend.

A nice, small. clean hotel right in Lindau. Parking about 100 yards away in a public lot. A/C and WiFi. Short walk to most of the town. They also have a very fine restaurant. One of the best meals we had on our trip on over 30 days. Excellent mushroom soup and jager schnitzel. Their strudel was also A1.

1 night only because my previous hotel Victoria Garni didn't have availabilities. If I compare with Victoria Garni which was quite basic but more cosy, family style hotel, Gasthof Stift is just bad. Room is smaller, ceiling in the single room is 15 cm above my head (I am 173cm, no heels ), one tiny window, even more tiny bathroom... More

I stayed there as part of Lindau Meeting Delegation in August 2014.The best part about this hotel is that it is right in the city centre, from where every part of Lindau is accessible. It is situated next to Stadt Museum and market square. The building is little old and rooms are small and have minimal furniture, but comfortable. Breakfast... More

This older hotel provides a splendid alternative to the grand hotels on the harbor. It is located on the Stift Platz adjacent to the Munster "Unser Lieben Frau", a large baroque catholic church, and across from the Lindau Museum with it's fine collection. One can walk about 4 short blocks (3 minutes) to the harbor where tourist activities abound and... More

Beautiful old traditional building in the main square and close to everything in the town. Nice public areas. Fully modernised room, clean, quiet, spacious and well maintained with a balcony that overlooked the square, great! The staff were friendly and helpful at reception. There is no hostess tray, safe or toiletries in the room. WiFi costs extra to use. Parking... More
