“Central, near lakeside”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Centrally located , near lakeside, ferry berths, Harbour train station and the Zeppelin Museum. 1st class buffet breakfast. Note that some rooms are in a seperate building by the car park a short walk away and may involve steps. Not a problem for me but worth checking when booking.

We stayed at the hotel while attending a trade show in the Messe Friedrichshafen. The hotel is conveniently located in the center of town, very close to the lake and near the Zeppelin museum. The room was very large and clean, the breakfast excellent. Very good hotel, to be recommended.

I was very happy with our choice after staying here for 5 nights . The hotel is located in the middle of town and has a good balance of character and comfort.

From arrival and throughout our stay, the staff were helpful and polite. The check-in service was efficient and quick and the front desk helped us out quickly with ordering a taxi etc. I gave the full five stars as the hotel even mailed us a pair of glasses back to Denmark, free of charge and with no fuss after we left them in our room by mistake.

The room was of a good size and the bed was nice and comfortable. There were a few touches around the hotel that gave a bit more character than many places I have stayed in: free popcorn in the lobby, a mini-bag of gummy-bears on the pillow, pictures of Hollywood icons in the corridor. Breakfast included a good selection of breads, the usual sausages, eggs cold-cuts etc.

WiFi access was included and (for once) worked with no glitches - we had several devices logged on at the same time and got stable and fast connections.

I cannot comment on the spa or pool as we did not try these out. There is even a small sun-deck on the roof that affords a view towards the Bodensee and the Alps. The only slight negative point is that I felt the bathroom could do with a bit better ventilation, but it was not really an issue, more a suggestion for improvement.

All in all, a good place to stay at an acceptable price.

A lovely breakfast spread (fresh meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, pates) with made to order lattes was one of the highlights in this great lakeside town. A visit to nearby Meersburg is a must (like a fairy tale - winding lanes, medieval castle tour - excellent). The breakfast area is very very stylish and clean and service was beyond great for an included breakfast. The location of this hotel is excellent - off the main promenade but quiet and near nice shopping - all walkable. The front desk staff was excellent - we were grateful for their perfect English! We'd love to go back someday.

I wanted a hotel in central Friedrichshaven and this certainly met that requirement. Totally efficient, friendly staff and excellent breakfast. About 5 minutes walk from Zeppelin museum and bus / train station. Lots of restaurants nearby. And a barrel of tasty free apples near reception. I would choose again for this location. Pool rather small if you expecting to actually swim.

I spent here more than a week, so I can say it would be a perfect place to stay if the walls between rooms were thicker.
But in whole the hotel is good, the staff is very helpful and polite. Breakfasts are very good.

My friend and I had 1 night stay at the Hotel City Krone on our way from switzerland to Czech Republic. We ended up being pleasantly surprised by this great town. The location of this hotel could not have been more perfect. Was just one street away from the christmas markets, the water and some great shopping. The rooms were fantastic, a great improvement from a lot of the places we had stayed. To top it of the breakfast was great! would definitely recommend staying here.
