We have chosen this hotel for our discovering of Bodensee area but could not tell you that it was a perfect choice. The hotel is really dated. It still got 4 stars but do not put your attention to it. From one side it is not the real village Gasthouse without any stars (there are a lot of them in the south of Germany and Austria) where you do not need to put your attention to facilities but just feel the atmosphere of the countryside and from another side it is not the normal 4* city hotel with all facilities.
Looking from the “formal side”: room is big with a lot of light and two windows. Bathroom is big with two washbasins and window.
Looking from the “feeling side”: room looks really dated and cold because of colors. Carpet on the floor looks not really clean (but I must be fair - is clean at the same time). Bathroom interior and design comes from seventies and you clearly see it (at the same time everything is working properly – German quality).
Breakfast is normal. It is not bad, it is not good, just normal. Coffee quality is really poor. Staff is also normal, enough friendly but not really welcoming. The only one lady was absolutely 100% perfect at the reception at our arrival date (my fault not to remember her name to present here).
Hotel got restaurant in the building which got a Michelin guided label on the door (have not visited it because of price reason: for 22.5 EUR for Wiener Schnitzel I would travel to next village to have it more than twice cheaper).
No air-conditioning in the room even if it is declared on Booking.com web page of this hotel. Parking space is not enough and sometimes it is rather tricky to park the car especially if you are driving some bigger minivan or SUV.
All in all, if I decide to come back to Bodensee, I would consider another hotel and not in Friedrichshafen but let us say in Meersburg.
