“we absolutely loved the place”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Staff is very polite, breakfast is great, chilling on the terrace next to the water couldn't last long enough, we had a lake view room on the 3rd floor, it was very spacious with a nice view and a very comfy duvet. Only negative was the size of the bathroom which could have been bigger and as we arrived late in the night, only possible food was a cheese sandwich.

Room Tip: lake view is a must - other side there is a railway

What was good:
- The room with lake view was fantastic. Size was great, the view was magnificent. Comfortable
- Not too far away from the center/main station and on the lake front

What was not so good:
- Though the weather was rather chilly, the restaurant had only set the outdoor tables for dinner
- Menu was a bit average for the hotel standard... felt like a canteen
- There are small field mice that will show up on the outdoor terrace after sunset. Whilst this can be considered as "normal" as we are practically in the countryside, the staff was not very helpful when notified (shoulders shrugged...my problem)

Room Tip: Lake view is worth it.

A historic building refurbished, appropriate for a town of 2000 years. The hotel is located on its own small island connected to a pedestrian walkway, turn left and you are in the town park and the harbor. Turn right, cross the Rhine Bridge and take the lake side promenade all the way to the tip of the peninsula. Walk straight ahead, up a narrow street and you are on the town's cathedral square.
We had a nice room with a view of the bay. Very clean modern furnishings and bathroom. The breakfast buffet was excellent, great variety and quality. The friendly front office staff helped us to print out our boarding passes. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful three day stay at the Steigenberger Inselhotel. Our room was clean and roomy and had a nice balcony overlooking the lake. The staff was accommodating and helpful with all questions we had. We did have a couple of issues with the room, but they were quickly resolved. My only complaint is that coming from the US and arriving jet logged at 10 am, it seemed cruel and unusual to make us wait until 3 to finally get our room. The staff was apologetic, but we still had to wait 5 hours. This has to happen often when guests fly in from the US and always land in the morning. We were not happy that first day, but fortunately things improved. Lovely hotel! Great breakfast every morning. Lovely lake side dinners. Very nice sitting areas outside on the lake, swimming area too. You also cannot beat the location. The harbor is a short walk where you can catch a ferry to many locations. The city is also a short walk. Constance is a beautiful, vibrant city. Can't wait to go back! I also would stay at the Steigenberger again next time.

Konstanz is a great gateway to exploring beautiful Bodensee which is accomplished most easily by boat. The Insel Hotel has a perfect location with an easy 5 minute walk to the harbor from which all excursion boats are leaving.
The hotel has a commanding view over the lake and is steeped in history. Until not so terribly long ago the hotel was owned by the family of Count von Zeppelin who was born there.
The guest room we stayed in had a magnificent view of the lake, it was very spacious, with furniture that was comfortable and quite elegant - importantly the air conditioning worked well.
The bathrooms were reasonably large and well appointed.
The hotel serves a very nice breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake, as well as lunch and dinner. For the most part the staff are very friendly and hospitable and genuinely try to provide outstanding service.

Room Tip: Getting a room with a lake view will really make a big difference.

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The double room was larger than many suites and was superbly furnished with new furniture, swiss cleanliness and even a walk in dressing room. The atmosphere is unique since you are staying in an old monastery . A walk around the quad after dinner is a great experience. Service is impeccable and the restaurant serves excellent quality food with reasonably priced local wines. In summer it must be marvellous to dine outside on the terrace overlooking the Boden See. Never tried the sauna and the gym is very basic but that is not why you are there. A perfect hotel for a weekend romantic break

Room Tip: garden view doubles are huge and well appointed

A delightful hotel on its own small island in Lake Constance next to the town of Constance, the room we had overlooking the lake was very comfortable and the views were splendid, quiet on the lakeside away from the town and railway. A comfortable bar, good food and the sauna was good too. Though we were only there for a night it was a thoroughly relaxing experience and one I would happily repeat

Room Tip: Choose the lake view to be away from the town and enjoy the morning sunrise over the lake
