“Modern, friendly and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

There are only two negative things one can say about this hotel, so let's get those over and done with. The position is not entirely "am See" - the lake is virtually out of sight - but the situation is quiet and convenient (with easy access to walks in the lakeside area and a Kneipp-bath in the stream flowing through the grounds). And the bathroom, in its desire to be modern and integrated, lacks privacy and, however hard one tries, the shower floods the adjacent floor.

That said, the whole place exudes friendliness and excellence. The reception is friendly and helpful (the receptionist accompanied us to our room and ensured we knew how the lighting etc worked). The rooms are well appointed - light and fairly spacious (excellent workspace for a computer, free and efficient Wifi, though two armchairs rather than a sofa would have made watching TV easier). The bed was extremely comfortable and the other amenities in the room impressive (clever storage space, iPad charger in safe, etc).

The breakfast buffet was generous and the staff attentive. The food had clearly been freshly prepared, and was topped up regularly. There was plenty of choice, hot, cold, sweet, savoury. On the two (weekend) mornings we were there, many tables were occupied by non-residents who were obviously attracted by the copious buffet. The hotel does not serve dinner, but refers guests to the excellent Gasthof Käth'r next door, with which it has links (one can sign for one's meals there and have them put on the hotel bill).

We travelled using a Bocco card, so the hotel was excellent value for money, but even at full price it would have merited consideration. We travelled by public transport - the hotel is only a short walk from the bus stop connecting with the trains in Bregenz or Lustenau.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side have a lake "view" and are probably quieter (though noise is not a...

In a town of so many quaint, old structures, the Hotel am See appears to be a bit out of place as it is a bronze cube only a short 5 minute walk from the lake. Nevertheless, it is a modern building that is very well appointed, clean and quiet. The staff is exceedingly helpful and courteous, and the abundant buffet breakfast was more than I could have wished for. This is a hotel that I would definitely recommend to my friends and coworkers. It will be my only choice for future visits to this area.

We stayed for only one weekend night. Appears to be a new hotel - rooms have all the basic. Breakfast was great and plentiful.
Service was good (especially at the breakfast) except that we had the experience with one staff member at the reception who guided us into the wrong direction for public bus - in the end we took our car to go to Bregenz (which was the better choice anyway as the bus does not run frequently)

I stayed there on business purposes for 1 night.

The hotel and the rooms are very modern and stylish. The bathroom / toilet via glass walls visually integrated into the room, from the shower you have view outside over the balcony.

Service very good. The lady at the reception remembered my name during my stay, and accompanied me the whole way to my room twice, once when i arrived and second, when i asked for wellnes bathrobe and carried two bags....

Breakfast buffet style, everything you are used to in typical good business hotels, warm & cold.

Wellness area was nice and clean: Sauna, Steamroom, infraredcabin and a small gym.. lots of towels available

Only a bit dissapointing: When booking a hotel with the name "Hotel am See", i expect beeing located directly on the lake with nice view on the water.. This was not the case, i had view on another house and at two buildings that were just built. The hotel is close to the lake but not directly...
