“Great Location, great old style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

I usually enjoy new, contemporary style hotels, however, really love the old feeling of this one, especially the stairs leading to your room. The room itself is clean and spacious, although a bit outdated. The location is fantastic as it is along the main road and across the lake. Easy to get a parking spot as well. We enjoyed a morning walk along the lake.

Call me old fashion but this style of hotel works best for me ! Friendly and helpful staff, large rooms and bathrooms, clean, and inviting with an excellent restaurant ! Well done to the team there..they have a special place that keeps the tradition of old world hotelierism alive !! No complaints at all ! I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms appear to be the best ( biggest ) try get one with the view of the lake.

This establishment is part of Friedrichshafen's history. The rooms were updated in the late 1990's. Been staying at the Buchhorner since 2002. Rooms are clean and well maintained European style furniture. Bring your shampoo and bath soap they supply the "all in one" soap in the rooms which is a bit lacking. The service is impeccable. Both the desk service and the supporting staff. Near the DeustchBahn station but far enough from the noise. Located near the Bodensee park area. Only a 15 minute walk to the main shopping district and the boat ferry to Romanshorn. Very convenient location.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms above the bar.

I was in Friedrichshafen in mid November for a week on a business trip and booked Buchhorner Hof, since the other hotel I prefer was overbooked. I got a room on the 3rd floor with a horrible bed. I couldn't really sleep because the mattress was not firm and my back hurt. Another bad experience was that the main road is just next to the hotel and therefore I could hear the traffic from 5 am and therefore couldn't sleep as well.
The breakfast was superb, with a wide selection of cheese, smoked salmon, etc.
The room was small but clean.
All in all if you can manage to get a room not next to the main road and an appropriate mattress then the hotel is fine.
Downtown of Friedrichshafen is a 10 minutes walk away.

We stayed here for several days during a trade show at Messe Friedrichshafen. The staff was friendly and accommodating - even though we didn't speak German. The view out the front across the lake to the Alps was spectacular.

Our room was very clean and comfortable.

We had breakfast here everyday and the breakfast buffet was outstanding. Yogurt and muesli, salmon and cured meats, several kinds of breads, eggs.
We also had a couple of dinner here and it was really, really good. The steak was the best we had on this trip and the asparagus soup was the best I've had anywhere. And our waiter helped us learn a little German.
Highly recommend.

Excelent, clean, location at front of the see, great atention and staff, good breakfast.

I was in this historic hause in Friedrichshafen Deutchland and I can recomend you 100%. Just avoid the little rooms ( # 327), the rest is wonderfull.

Room Tip: Choose always the ones with See View...! any way the besides rooms are esceptional as well and quiet...

I stayed here for four nights while on business recently along with several colleagues. Room size was pot luck, some had very small rooms, others had more decent size rooms, I dipped out and had a small room. The room was just adequate for one person, very clean and the bed was comfortable, though it was almost impossible to get an ironing board in the room. It was hot while I was there, the aircon made no difference, and leaving the window open meant that you had noise from the road. Breakfast was very good, the usual continental style, I did not use the bar or restaurant for other meals. Watch out for the hunting trophies in the corridors, there are some sharp antlers that could catch out taller people, keep in the middle of the corridor! The staff were very helpful and pleasant at all times. Overall, an average but not unpleasant stay.
