“Near(!)perfect...but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

NEAR perfect (!) As one my expect from a hotel in this price- and class category most matters were perfectly in order. Friendly (though a bit robotic) staff at the reception. Our room was well serviced and adequately equipped, be it that the bathroom was rather small and lacked for example a bidet or a proper shower cabin. (We stayed at the 3rd floor harbor side). The restaurant offers good food but is overpriced for what they serve. However, that should be no problem because there are plenty decent restaurants in the vicinity. (The restaurants along side at Hotel Reutemann and Seegarten are belonging to Bayerische Hof). The breakfast-buffet is excellent and the waiters go out of their way to accommodate the guests and this with a big smile! NOT SO PERFECT was the experience with WLAN. It was a near torture to go and stay online. The management seems to be semi paranoid about security and has figured out an agonizing log-in procedure. In addition every time one moves from one location to the other (for example from the room to the lobby or from the restaurant to the reception) the system disconnects and one has to repeat the log-in torment (!) Really irritating is the fact that the management (Herr doctor himself ;-), is in an automatic denial mode and assumes the "guest" is by definition an ignorant and or has inadequate or outdated equipment ! Neither of our three Apple-devices worked the WLAN properly! In addition, we overheard several other guests complaining about the same phoneme. The Bayerische Hof might like to consider to synchronize all relevant access-points (and amplifiers) for continues WLAN connection. If it has to be, better charge a fee and make the system work as it should be. As it's now I would absolutely not recommend this hotel (nor hotel Reutemann and Seegarten) as a place for conferencing.

Room Tip: Front, i.e. harbor side or poolside. During the high season it's better to have a room at the up...

Stayed for a long weekend at end of June 2013. Booked through web link and got a very good deal. Was not disappointed in the hotel, everything was enjoyable. The staff at the reception were most accommodating friendly and switched to speak English when I attempted my phrase book German. The furnishings and decoration top class, spotless room with large beautiful bedroom and bathroom. We, a couple, booked a standard double and were well pleased. Well appointed, comfortable bed, relaxing sofa chairs and free bottled water on arrival. Slept well with no noise outside. Airconditioning in the bedroom,, which was welcome as Lindau can get very hot in summer. Breakfast . . everything you would require, fruit, cereals, yogurt, cooked eggs, breads, cheeses, meats, teas, coffees. Great choice. Hotel beside the Lake and cruise boats and across from the train and bus station. Would recommend this hotel and hope to visit again.

Room Tip: We stayed on second floor and was very quiet, it overlooked the train station square.

We were in Lindau for one night only and decided to stretch the budget to stay on the island and enjoy the stay. This hotel was amazing. The location was great, right on the promenade and over the road from the train station. The hotel also has parking, which we booked in advance. The reception were lovely.
The room was palacial. The bed was really comfortable and we had great sleep. The hotel has a really nice outdoor pool. The included breakfast was amazing. It wasn't cheap at 210 Euro for the night, but it was worth it. If you go to Lindau for one night like we did, there's no point being off the island.

Right on the harbour overlooking the lighthouse and lion, I could not imagine a better position for your stay. Could not find anything at all to fault about this hotel. The breakfast was so fresh, in fact anything that you could want. Despite the 63rd Lindau Nobel Laureate being on in the hotel while we were there it did not inhibit on our stay at the hotel at all. Without a second thought would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: They are all lovely.

Right next to the railway station and on the waterfront. Location could not be better.
Great staff and food. The selection of local wines and fish was especially memorable.
The hotel obviously works hand to ensure all the small detail are attended to. It looks like the owners are personally involved and they own 2 adjacent properties, both of which look equally well cared for. There is much evidence of continued investment and it looks like another new extension will be constructed in the quiet period this autumn.
Looking forward to returning some day.

Room Tip: Great front rooms overlooking the lake but be prepared for some noise from the hotel's bar below...

The location of this hotel is good. The hotel looks & is lovelly. Our room was great, looking out on the lake. However front desk which is always your 1st greeting to your accommodation was not nice. The men working there were rude & acted dumb (maybe because we were not German). We always start our new arrival with a glass of champagne but at €28.00 a glass for Moët I couldn't be bothered. We didn't eat at the hotel, only breakfast which was good. There were a lot of great restaurants that we found on trip advisor that were rated much higher than our hotel restaurant. On a good note for the reception there were two lovely ladies that were helpful & always happy to help with directions & advise.

Right on the bay overlooking the water and so peaceful!! When the sun goes down over the entrance to the bay you are in for a real treat!! The room we had was so comfortable and the view of the street below and the bay beyond was awesome! Room prices were very reasonable and the beds were very comfortable...great night sleep! The Hotel is convenient to all restaurants and the also to the boat dock and bay entrance towers. Make sure you walk all around and explore everything!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the bay...at night it is like stepping back in time when you see the t...
