    Family friendly and good location, but a little worn out hotel
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Triple Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Breakfast selection not too big, very full at times and hard to find place to sit within breakfast hours, especially from 07 - 09 (breakfast goes from 07 - 10 am). One electricity output did not work and tv was almost impossible to turn on (remote did not work too well), although good selection of channels (Sky), even though we did not watch much tv anyway except for one evening when it was raining kind of heavy. Wifi was a little unstable but worked well when we managed to connect. Facilities are old and looks dirty, family run hotel so I guess that's why they can't invest too much into renovating.

    Breakfast was good, not too large selection of food and dining room quite small (although they have extra room that can be opened if too many people), so we ended up sitting next to an old couple one morning, which was not that bad. One of the waitresses seemed a little bad mooded, rest was nice. Room was huge, since we were three people (2 adults and 1 child) and cleaning was good. Quiet location, but only 300 meters away from bus and train to Friedrichshafen or Meersburg. Kaufland and gas station close by, pharmacy and hotel restaurant next to hotel.

    Beds, small rooms, location -> it is not really in Friedrichshafen. You can go to the city center. However, the train goes only 1 or 2 times in an hour. There is also a bus, but we did not check its scheduler. Breakfast was ok, however, you expect a better one for such money.

    We found what we are convinced was a cockroach in the bedroom. Staff on site were friendly but the manager in dealing with our complaint has been offhand and unhelpful. The hotel is situated overlooking a flyover with a train station underneath, so whilst the hourly train to the lake is useful the view and location are not great.

    Staff onsite were friendly. Room was big.

    Had a room at the front of the Hotel in very hot weather, no aircon so with the window open the the level of noise from the major road overpass (and railway station underneath) was way beyond obtrusive. The room had a balcony but it was over the outside eating area, again, noise was an issue until late as was visitors smoking which for a non smoker was uncomfortable.
