“What a surprise!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We stayed here as a couple while visiting in April 2014, having booked via an on-line site. We wanted somewhere central and picked this hotel at short notice based on previous travellers' reviews. I know it sounds stupid but we didn't realise it was vegan until we arrived, late one night, and read the room literature. While initially shocked and apprehensive we were to be pleasantly surprised.

The rooms were spotless with an excellent en suite power shower. While there was TV it was purely German/swiss channels so don't be looking for English speaking channels and the wi-if was iintermittent in the rooms. As I said the rooms were super but the small balcony was not maintained to the same degree with weeds etc present.

Not being vegetarian never mind vegan we were very apprehensive re breakfast but the choices turned out to be grand - cereals - albeit with soy milk - soy yoghurt, toast and spreads and an abundance of fruit. Being used to the standard British breakfast menu I didn't expect to be satisfied with what was on offer but it certainly proved to be more than adequate.

The hotel is well sited - being in the centre of kreutzlingen and a 10 minute walk from Konstanz.

All in all, while initially worried about what breakfast would offer we were more than happy with this hotel and the management were more than friendly and helpful.

We just came back from this hotel, where we bought a special offer for 2 nights, 2 vegan meals and thermal baths in Konstanz. The baths were the highlight of our stay. The vegan meals, served by a young and enthusiastic team, were a good experience. Breakfast on the other hand was pretty poor. But what spoiled our stay were the really strong sewage odors coming from the toilet. We complained to the reception lady and asked for another room. She told us that it's normal, these odors appear on rainy days and that if we want another room we need to pay an extra charge. We did't agree, so they sprayed some aggressive lime deodorant in the room which made the situation even worse.
What we don't understand, is that they make these special offers to attract new customers and create positive buzz. And they could easily have given us another room as the hotel was half empty. Instead we spent two bad nights and the receptionist didn't even apologize for the inconvenience. So we won't return to this hotel and would not advise it to anybody.

Reviewed 27 April 2013

i've made it a 4 because the people were so charming... perhaps being a vegan place it was something of a mission, not just a job? it was also really good value, a large room bathed in natural light, a comfortable place to relax between bodensee sightseeing excursions or trips across the border to konstanz, which is in walking distance (15 minutes). the bus station is directly outside the hotel (this does have its disadvantages too of course). it was a shame the bar/restaurant downstairs wasn't open longer hours, as it would've been a cosy place for a nightcap, and kreuzlingen seemed to have little else to offer bar or restaurant-wise. breakfast had many different components on the buffet table; i would have appreciated more guidance as to what many of these pots of spreads, pates, purees, etc (all vegan of course) actually were. it felt a little more like a science laboratory than a breakfast buffet at times. ultimately, and surprisingly, the fact that this is a good hotel (nicely furnished room, good bathroom, good light, sensibly priced) eclipsed the fact that it is a vegan one.

Room Tip: the road to the front can be noisy during business hours
