The size of the room was good, we were able so put all iof our stuff in, cupboards were available. We had lake-view. This place is way overprized. Room was dirty, the whole hotel has been neglected both stilewise as well as buildingwise. Rotten wood on too-small balcony, floor and furniture covering worn out. Cleaning was not even superficial, Don;'t go here if you're allergic to dust. The breakfast (late, 08:00) was poor, tablecloths dirty from dinner the night before, bad preparations (I'd say: folks, get up an hour earlier and get your act together!). No professional dedication and motivation, nor client oriented attitude by senior staff. Best thing to do: take a year and re-do the lot room by room, finish with the common parts, restyle into something 21-st century like and then replace senior management and staff all together.
scenery and lake views, balcony bathroom needed remodelling and hair dryer for ladies required
The best thing about this hotel is it's location - the view over the lake to Switzerland is excellent. Sadly, the word that springs to mind about this hotel is faded. It should have been luxury for the price they charged but it wasn't. It might have been at one time but now the carpets are worn and the management skimps on small things such as coat hangars (we had four between two of us), soap, shower gel and so on. It could have been really good but it was spoilt by the lack of attention to detail. Also, calling the litter covered tiny patch of shingle next to the water a beach is definitely an exaggeration.
The bathroom was very dirty ! And it was not possible to have a breakfast before 7 am even if the price of it could not be sustain withdrawal from the room price !
It was located just by Bodensee - and we had a great view of the lake from our room. The room was big and clean. The attached restaurant was quite good, and Saturday barbeque was very good. The website says the hotel has a private beach on Bodensee: however, the beach is about four feet long - and stony and dirty. The public beach 50 meters away by the jetty is much better.
Just Outside Environment ; Hotel is located in very very Nice place !!! I cancelled one night but they charged me !! There is only one Staff in full hotel, Doing Cashier Job, Kitchen job and answering the phone or what so ever !!!
location far too quiet. We returned one evening at 9.30 and the hotel was in darkness
In front of the lake No internet in the room, reception closes at 9pm, basic beakfast for a 165euro room, old smell in the hotel.
The view on the bodensee is beautiful, choose a room on the right side ! The parking is accessible. There is fresh fruit salad at breakfast. The desk is opened at irregular time, and close the later at 8 pm. The elevator is accessible only when the desk is opened. The beds are uncomfortable. There is light in the room in the morning. The bathroom is little. This hotel has great potential, but is not well maintained.
My husband and my 1 year old stayed at the hotel and really had a great time. We where looking for a place that we could walk around with our baby in his carriage without having to use our car and it was very centrally located. Not only that but we enjoyed the swimming pool with our baby (the water was heated). The free wifi in the rooms was great. The breakfast was amazing! The hotel was perfect for our family vacation. Nothing to complain about.
Too short time at the hotel to answer Too short time at the hotel to answer
Well-positioned, 3 min from the lake and 2 min from the center. Staff friendly and helpful, room looked great and clean, i found breakfast really good! I recommend it to everyone! It was said that there is internet in the whole hotel but from the 5th floor where our room was we couldn't get it. As others mentioned it before it is true that the bell rings so often and so loud which can be annoying after a while, but it was not a big problem for us, didn't wake us up.
the location.the room.
The situation was great for access to Lake Constance facilities such as boat trips to other areas. There was also lots of good restaurants all within walking distance. No tea/coffee facilities in the room which would have been nice. I feel that carparking should be free. Otherwise it was a great stay,
Polite and efficient staff. Clean rooms. Central location but quiet Smoking was permitted.
the large room and swimming pool
We loved it. Fabulous room overlooikng the Lake and a marvellous spread at breakfast. Duvets to die for.... Price!!!
It was very central for us and was easy to find from the Airport No
very good food in the restaurant
ideal location,central, without the hustle and bustle, very nice hotel and rooms no
Friendly service and excellent breakfast. Not where we thought and slightly isolated. However it did have a fairly good bus service to other places.
The hotel service is just fair , location is off city center, small sauna facilities.
Friendliness of the staff.Quality of food.location in access to lake no
Very pleasantg stay, excellent restaurant.
Extremely friendly staff and excellent food. No everything was fine.
Excellent service and good athmosphere
Nice and clean, and the staffe was very helpfull. I prefer that more of the basic information also should be avaiable in English language, this is a problem when you not can German, but only English,.
Good restuarant, friendly helpful staff Problems with internet access
The situation - perfect location, breakfast excellent, friendly reception staff. It was also surprisingly quiet and easy to relax. Rooms comfortable and nice balcony. disappointed by roof garden - this could be developed with Liegen / sunloungers for relaxation. Restaurant layout a little unappealing.
Fantastic location. Central to lake at sea promenade and ferries.Lots going on and fun. Great variety of restaurants nearby. We took a ferry to Meersburg..great!! Drove to Switzerland.(Rorschash.swam in lake there).approx 1.5 hours and through Austria..a great recomendation from the staff.A/C great on a hot weekend.Parking garage seemed very secure.I was impressed w/Bookings.com on all my hotels(Munich,Garmisch,Friedrichshafen)no issues at all.I needed more time there. Breakfast was not up to 4 star but that is not why we were there.
The location next to lake constance was superb. great views and great hotel. Not applicable.
Good location. It is just next to the station and lake side.
Location The pillow was too small. There was no shampoo in the room. The soap dispenser at the sink did not work.
My friend and I traveled throughout Germany for 12 days with the primary purpose of visiting her elderly Aunt in Weimar. We stayed at the SeeHotel for three nights. It was adjacent to the train station and very close to Lake Constance. We checked in and were given two single rooms on the 5th floor. We entered the elevator and there was no 5th floor. I returned to the reception desk and ask and was told by the receptionist that we needed to take the elevator to the 4th floor and then climb the very long staircase to the 5th floor. I was astonished! My friend and I are physically healthy women in our 50's but to have to carry my 50 pound suitcase up a long flight of stairs at a 3-4 star hotel was just outrageous.
Great Staff and nice Hoteldesign . The Hotel is located at the railstation and centre . Easy to find , easy to get rid of your car . Bar is great , Breakfast more then enough . Additional prices for Outside Parking , Wifi - Internet is not really liked and could be included in Room price . Badroom was not 100% ok : ventilation wasnt working , Shower did fluctuate between the right water temperature and to hot water : adjusting was always needed . Technical maintenance is needed for little things that would need to be 100% in this 4 star hotel .
Location is perfect. Easy walk from there to see that town. It's very close to the station and taxis for transport to airport and/or businesses. No
Friendliness, convenience, and a perfect location. Excellent breakfasts. The hotel does not provide WIFI internet connection in rooms nor in the public lounge. They provide one computer terminal for guests to use but only one and it was faulty when I was there. Otherwise it is a perfect hotel.
Hotel is clean and comfortable and the location is excellent, close to the station and the lakeside. The staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money. some added extras rediculously expensive ie. internet, breakfast, bathrobes and towels for sauna etc.
First-class hotel, good sized rooms and facillities, excellent dining and breakfasts, helpful staff.
the service and the food were both excellent the traffic
The swimming pool and restaurant plus excellent staff always willing to help. No air conditioning in the room a lot of traffic noise and limited facilities in close proximity to the hotel.
Comfort, pool and cardio training room Neon main light of the room
Quality of brekfast and swimming pool Building entrance door or magnetic card seems to be out of order every time I tried to enter .
Everything about this hotel is 1st class. The attention to detail in every aspect is an example as to how all hotels 4 & 5 star should be run. Location is perfect. Easy stroll into town. Bedroom, dining room, garden, reception all were beautiful. Perfect breakfast. Easy safe parking took worry of car away. Owners were hands on and ever so so friendly. 20 years since we were last in Garmisch and this hotel is equal to the best we have stayed in anywhere in the meantime.
Excellent hotel, staff were excptional, rooms and facilities are fabulous
Location and breakfast!
very friendly and helpful staff, excellent restaurant in the hotel, free underground parking, very rich breakfast, great facilities, nice bed and very clean room, the location is very close to the lake constance. magnificent!
conveinence to everything we wanted to do. price was alitlle high
Very good hotel. The rooms were of high quality and the location excellant. We did not eat in the restaurant except for breakfast, but that was very good.
Excellent location N/A
The hotel staff were charming and helpfull , the food and service was excellent . I would very much like to stay again . Unfortunatly my stay was for buisness and during the fair times hotel prices are very high , I will stay again when the rates are more reasonable !
location, design/colourings, staff spoke good english The bathroom was not very functional; the toilet was too high and squashed next to bath, shower over bath was not effective - if you stood directily under it the water goes onto floor and taps over toilet, for size of room the bath was very small, no fan, window or aircon. also, additional pillows would be helpful and tv remote control
Lovely location, the rooms were great and the front desk staff very helpful
Very central location in Friedrichshafen. Easy to access the lake as well as exhibition center via bus. Bus terminal less than 5 min. walking. Hotel staff tries to be friendly but seems to be stressed. Booking.com sells rooms at rack rate. I believe booking.com should offer better rate as international booking platform.
Well located close to the lake front and all the bars and restaurants and the ferry terminal
Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. There was no air circulation, a/c or fan available and there was so much street noise that we could not open the windows. The breakfast area was very small and uncomfortable to move around for a buffet.
The rooms were excellent, the hotel was very well run and the staff very helpful. This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and would certainly go back. Only certain rooms have air conditioning, a fan is provided, so in the summer they can be very warm.
position of hotel and friendly, helpful and efficient staff no air conditioning
Friendly staff, who spoke English well.
The restaurant is great and one has a good variety of delicious dishes to choose. There is also a lounge and once can relax with friends or chat with colleagues during business travels. The decoration is quite interesting and the furniture is modern. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the breakfast was poor. There is no buffet and the guest is served at the table by a plate of cheese and a few cold meat (ham, salami...). The content lacks variety: only one type of bread, one type of juice (orange), one type of water (with gas), etc. On Sunday morning the bread was from last day.
The rooms were very clean, and the design was modern and friendly. Breakfast was more than enough. Had dinner one tiime which was also very good.
Very clean nice room, good breakfast, near the airport. Its on a bus route but the buses didn't go all night. On the outskirts of town but it suited us as we needed to be near airport.
Restaurant Excellent Broken Bed
Clean and warm with friendly staff. Could be a little noisy and quite difficult to find even with Sat Nav.
Comfortable, clean, friendly staff and a nice evening meal in the pleasant garden
The attention of the woman that received me the absence of a staff that speaks English
The bar area was ultra cool - there was definitely a good ambience about the place - the restaurant seemed popular too We arrived at 3 in the afternoon not realising that there was no check in until 5 that afternoon so we had to get a taxi back to town again. Also it was a pretty cold day and our room was freezing when we got in - they hadn't switched on any heaters!
The breakfasts were quite good. The rooms were clean. I would stay here again. Close to local pub. 1) Only one key per room caused difficulties for our group. 2) need separate sheets for hot night 3) Restaurant was closed during our stay. 4) Location a bit distant from town but bus service is good. 5) Taxi split four ways is not more than the bus fare.
I stay just one night so i didnt have much time to impress. the staff was very nice and the resturant was good. the room was above the resturant so it was noisy.
Above all, the easy, friendly atmosphere. Just that the menu could be more varied - especially for those like us staying 7 nights.
The hotel was very well presented and well respected staff (good food too). Need to put flair on the outside of the hotel so you can see it from the road.
Efficient, friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast buffet, didn't get a chance to eat in the restaurant but heard it was very good. Room too warm at night, but traffic too loud to leave windows open - must have been position of our room as my parents did not have the same problem.
Staff are very kind. Some of the staffs only speaks Germany, but they are kind so it is not a big problem.
Smoking bar No smoking rooms
The swimming pool and spa were a pleasant surprise and made up for the out of the way location. Excellent breakfast. Room was very clean and great shower!
The grounds of the hotel were beautiful! The junior terrace suite was large and comfortable for two adults and two small children. The service was excellent and there was always someone there that could speak English. The hotel was not very child friendly-the playground (though thankful that the hotel even had one) was in need of an update both aestetically and safety.
I found this hotel convenient to leave my car in the secure parking and travel by Metro.The staff were very helpful and although I speak a little French English was spoken.The rooms a little on the small side but clean and well serviced. Breakfast was adequate and unlike my overnight in London included in the price.
Good restaurant and buffet breakfast, large room with balcony, very good service, swimming pool. Only shower in the room
Breakfast was outstanding. The best food and selection on our entire trip. Beautiful grounds surrounding the hotel. The hotel is advertised as being in Friedrichshafen on the Bodensee. The hotel is actually located in Ailingen and not close to any attractions. You must drive to the Bodensee.
New hotel with friendly staff, comfortable rooms, a nice restaurant, and fair prices. The parking lot was a little small. When coming back from dinner at midnight, I couldn't find a spot, and actually parked outside in a "no parking" area (which luckily was not a problem on the weekend).
The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everybody. My stay there, although very short, was very pleasant. Thank you!
Very friendly staff in a functional hotel. And a good kitchen as well! Rooms are very well sound insulated.
Spa was missing
Very clean and tidy hotel. Very good value. Excellent location for the airport, in fact it took 20 seconds to walk from door to door.
Good location, clean and good service. Good breakfast. Noise from the street,
usual ibis,clean,convenient. overpriced,poor breakfast for the money and dinner was dear and not so good. just an overpriced airport hotel.
Air condition did not work
rooms were clean and comfortable. Could not get a meal as the restaurant closed earlier than it should have and there are no restaurants nearby so we had to get a taxi into town. People were smoking in the foyer of the hotel.
good breakfast. to far from centre of friedrichshafen. not enough choice on the menu in the restaurant.
Needed aircon....weather very humid. Proximity local railway/tram station just over main road..3 mins from town centre by train They should publicise the rail station... did not find out about it until I arrived by taxi
internet, breakfast, late-check in, clean rooms no
the hotel has a good position, breakfast was very good, none
To be highlighted that we arrived at the Hotel at 03.00 p.m. but nobody was present, no messages and calling to the telephone number of the hotel there was no answer. So we had to return later at 06.00 p.m. when the restaurant waiter open us and give us the key of room asking to keep it with us.
The Zeppelin museum, shopping.
Staff had a positive attitude and were helpful. Good food. Bathrooms a little too small
The staff was very friendly and attentive. We stayed during a heat wave, and while we realize that air conditioning is not common in small European facilities, our room and other hotel areas would have greatly improved our comfort with increased ventilation such as is afforded by ceiling fans or portable fans.
The rooms were clean. There were a lot of bad things: first of all we paid 100 euro's for each room per day. our 2 rooms had only 1 common bathroom which made it very uncomfortable for us. the light was very dim, there were no pictures on the wall's, and basicly, it was just like living in a basement. And finnaly, when we came to settle our way too high payment for the conditions we had, we found out that there is nobody to talk with, since the manager didn't answered our call's and the housekeeper told us that he will be at the hotel only afternoon.Since we didn't reach him,the housekeeper coulden't help us with anything and we didnt want to waste the whole day wating for the unreachable manager we had to pay and leave. We do not recommend the hotel.
Quiet location but still not too far from towncenter, approx 10min walk, staff was helpfull and flexible, they changed usual breakfast time for me
Although not seaside itself it was an easy walk to the pier area. Clean comfortable and ample parking on site. Friedrichshafen is a beautiful area. Pillows practically squish flat and I prefer something that actually supports my head.
Uncomplicated, simple hotel in walking distance from the lake and the town centre. Friendly staff, good value for money. Small bathroom. Windows need to be closed due to the street noise.
Friendly staff and good parking (some under cover) in a quiet (on weekends at least) location less than 5 minutes walk from the lakeshore and under 10 minutes to the pedestrianised city centre. Try to avoid rooms in the same section of corridor as the breakfast room, as it is open onto the corridor, so quite noisy from about 0630 onwards.
its climate and style
spacious, modern rooms
Clean and tidy rooms, vey helpful staff speaking English.
Nice room with a balcony that was nice in the sun,good selection on menu and a nice breakfast(continental) Nothing to do with the hotel but best to drive into town although we did walk once(3k)
Spacious, non-smoking, clean room in the newer part of hotel. Did not smell of smoke. Good sized bathroom. Comfortable bed and good bed linen. Quiet. Safe box for valuables in room. Lots of free parking on site. Staff attentive and very polite. - Breakfast buffet disappointing. Limited selection. Fruit and bread did not look so fresh. Staff only brought out small portions of food at a time. Expected much better quality/selection for breakfast for the room rate. But perhaps this is par for the area/season?
It is located far of rush communications. NO
The high quality service given by a family run hotel, the varied menu which was sensibly priced, good food. Good safe car parking. Quiet location. No.
very nice hotel and excellent value for money, highly recomend no hot drink available at night
The Staff were very friendly and helpful; and the room was excellent. I look forward to using this hotel again.
