Looking over the harbour and close to the railway station (but not audibly so) this is an excellently located hotel from which to explore Bodensee. The hotel is very well run by an effective and friendly staff from Reception, though to waiting staff and chamber maids. The restaurant is first class with some very special dishes. It is everything one...

We chose the hotel as it offered bookable parking and we were drawn by the rooftop pool photos. Lindau is a quaint island in lake Konstanz connected by a short bridge to the main land. Parking would appear to be problematic unless pre booked and the hotels underground car park has limited spaces, so if you are travelling by car...

The Helvetia is a nice and clean hotel, with nice views of the lake, breakfast was nice and plenty of choice. Rooms are of a decent size and were very clean. It's very well kept and would come back again. It just misses a bar, as the only place to have a drink is in the restaurant.

We stayed one night on our way back home after spending time in the Bavarian Alps/Austrian Tirol where we had stayed in 5 * hotels so I have to be careful not to make direct comparisons. Generally, the staff were friendly enough but for me the hotel was lacking a few touches. For example, some of the doors and frames...

We stopped for dinner to watch a beautiful sunset overlooking the harbor and the lake with the alps in background. Food was excellent. Service was good only I noticed staff had trouble delivering to the right table. Steak was one of best we have had in Europe. Had a wonderful baked potato and delicious soup. A nice surprise since we...

I find that with boutique hotels that there is always something quirky or inconvenient. As long as you can deal with that... The location is great, right on the harbor. The extra parking is far away if you do not reserve parking at the hotel in time. The entrance and lobby is a bit cheap looking (feels motel-ish). The rooms...

If you are visiting BodenSee (lake Contance), this hotel is worth staying at. If coming by car make sure you pre book garage space. Hotel is ideally located on the island just behind the small harbour. Our room was small, but amazing with double bath in the room in addition to shower room. Food was simple but remarkably good and...

Very nice room BUT not very pleasant staff ! We were lost because the track on the internet was WRONG (someone googled it the wrong way) but our waitress did not believe us. We did not get any welcome drink. We had to walk to the parking far away because we did not book the parking and we had to...

As a finish of a great trip around the 5 larger Italian lakes and alps, I wanted to treat my wife with something extrordinary, and had booked already in February a room with balcony and sea view for the first weekend of July. Due to a very high price for the room, my expectations were of course high before we...
