Room was large. Staff very friendly. Parking outside just besides. Breakfast with wide selection. Very comfortable feeling. The landscape is beautiful. It's an excellent place to enjoy natural life near the lake.
Our European vacation was interrupted by a medical emergency, which necessitated my husband spending 4 days in the nearby hospital in Friedrichshafen. (He has recovered completely, fortunately!) I was fortunate to find a single room available in the Krone, and found the hotel to be a peaceful, supportive place with a caring staff, all of which helped me to cope with the new situation as it unfolded. My room was well equipped, very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was like a banquet for this weary traveler!
We stayed here for a few days whilst touring the area. The room was OK but almost every item in the room had a price tag. Internet access in the room was impossible only available on the stairs !! The breakfast was good and offered a wide choice. The indoor pool is only around 15 m long but was empty. Lots of parking spaces but it is a long way from the lake. The restaurant food was not very good. The hamburger was meat coloured and rubbery and a real disgrace . Other menu items were only average with no flair or good presentation. Reception staff were quite unhelpful and there is no secure storage for bags left in the hotel . We were instructed to leave them in a corner of reception! An average hotel which needs to improve its offerings.
I have stayed at the Krone many times, and my experience is always the same - it is an exceptional hotel! The rooms are extremely clean and nice, particularly in the Silber Distal building, but all of the rooms are very nice. The hotel reflects the diligence of the Herr and Frau Ruess, the owners.
business room was great, albeit a bit loud at night (there was a wedding on that weekend, so I'm not complaining). clean, modern, comfy bed, baby & kids beds present and in the right place, bathrobes and slippers, free wifi, free teddy bears for the kids (what more, seriously, can you ask for). slightly in the middle of nowhere, with a (closed) hairdresser next to the hotel, some kind of pub opposite, a bakery (closed) around the corner and a supermarket five minutes by car. great pool, with an indoor pool bar! sauna, massage, turkish bath, children's play room, an aquarium with nemo, marlin AND dorie, really, almost the perfect holiday venue. bit awkward to walk from the pool through the lobby back to the room (past the wedding party, piano music and all) wearing bathrobes carrying a crying child. I'm sure there must be a different way to get to the lift but we couldn't find it. staff was excellent both in the hotel and in the restaurant. on the children's menu, which was a little colouring book, they actually had free food for the smallest ones! I don't think I've actually seen anything like that before in an à la carte restaurant. food was great, though admittedly quite salty (even though I like salty), from the pepper sauce to the vegetables. we wondered whether the cook was in love (and again, the place was packed due to the wedding). bowling alley looked great fun (packed too), and I think there were a total of three different bars - actually got lost in the halls once when I got out of the lift a floor lower than expected. they have their own distillery and didn't charge us for the milk for the kids. breakfast was more like one of those sunday brunches at expensive airport hotels that cost a fortune and are competely packed with rich tourists; eggs in all variations, salmon, weisswürstl, a diverse cheese and sausage selection, fresh fruit, cappucinos and a children's breakfast buffet, complete with crayons etc. with a little playground round the corner. again, breakfast hall packed due to the wedding, but no shortage of anything. free water, mints or schnaps at checkout. kiddie kart at entrance to the huge parking area. overall, great overnight stay, will gladly come back.…
