I've just returned from a business trip in Friedrichshafen and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it and staying at the best western. This hotel is right in the middle of a 'quaint' town and just a 1 minute walk to the beautiful Lake Constance. The hotel is immaculately clean. You are greeted by very pleasant staff and...

Conveniently located in the centre of town and a very easy drive from the airport. Car hire with Hertz was simple as usual. Do make sure you have excellent directions to the hotel and car park before arriving as you have to drive through the pedestrian areas to reach the hotel. The room was functional, clean and tidy but nothing...

A nice clean and well furnished hotel. I didnt like the idea that the hotel itself is separated from the reception. Very clean and please note that the shower is visible to all. No screen.beds were one of the best i had in any hotel. Recommended.the zeppelin museum is right next to the hotel and so is the pedestrian zone.

I have stayed here twice now in the lakeside rooms. Very modern rooms overlooking the lake. Sofas and tables over by the huge picture windows. Very comfortable beds with a choice of duvet or sheet. Nice bathroom spoilt by a curtain instead of a door to the shower. If you have the shower on at a good strength you flood...

Friedrichshafen is a beautiful place to visit with lots of character, things to see, eat, etc and thoroughly recommended. My visit was for business so I was after a quiet and comfortable room. Unfortunately, I was in a small room, which overlooked the street which was noisy until midnight to 1am and awoken at 6ish with street cleaners and rubbish...

This is a nice hotel with modern clean rooms and a good breakfast buffet. The staff was polite and professional with good knowledge of the local area and businesses. The double rooms is spacious and modern, the single rooms is equally spacious for one person. Toiletries was plentiful and the daily cleaning was good. When two of the people in...

Couldn't fault this hotel or the staff. Friendly and helpful from the outset - language barrier makes no difference at all. Nice clean and well kept room and a lovely breakfast to start the day. The hotel is spread across a a few separate buildings within the town but they are all within a stone's throw of each other and...

We stayed in the seaview rooms in the modern building across from the main reception area. The view was wonderful. However, the room did not seem overly clean, especially the bathroom but I wasn't sure if the surfaces just had been damaged and were really clean. Our main complaint is the glass wall for the bathroom in the middle of...

If you do not mind having light by lack of curtain all night or when you can take a shower cold or without pressure than this hotel is perfect. A shame as the room are beautiful and one could feel oneself at home otherwise. Good location, close to teh lake and the pedestrian center

Stayed for just one night on business and was in the apartment section which directly overlooks Lake Constance. Weather did not play its part so I saw the lights of Switzerland at night but alas the Alps were hidden by the clouds. Wonderfully comfortable bed with modern styled glass walled bathroom. To top things off a Nespresso machine with a...
