Nice, modern building with a lot of passages.Quite nice interior with some original small artwork/sculptures.
Convenient parking however with a limited number of parking slots.
Extremely helpful staff. Great breakfast, wide selection of food however I would provide better quality juices.
Excellent location, very close to the Lake.
The room however was quite average and the TV was a 90ies relict.

Stayed for 3 nights in May. The property is in a good location, just a short walk from the Bodensee and main promenade, but far enough away to remain quiet. The Zeppelin Museum and large supermarket are a short walk as well. We had a suite, with the sleeping area in an upstairs loft. Would have preferred the bathroom to be on the same level, but just a nitpick. The room was very clean and modern. The service was excellent as well. Biggest gripes are the lack of a workout room and terrible Wifi reception. I'm sure it was the location of our room as others in the group were very satisfied with the Wifi reception in their room. But overall, had a positive experience staying at this property.

Dear Hapa Nate,

thanks a lot for your review, it´s great to see that you enjoyed the time in our hotel and you highlighted our service. It´s a great motivation and we will share this in the whole team.

Thanks for the feedback regarding the bathroom in the loft - we will consider this in our next rooms being build.

We will have a closer look into our wifi connection and optimise this.

We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again at the lake of Constance.

kind regards

Stayed here a couple days on business and am glad I did. Super friendly staff, nice lobby, bar and restaurant and a great pool in the basement. It is situated steps away from the Bodensee but not on the main promenade so you don't have to worry about crowds hooting it up until all hours at the sidewalk cafes right below your window.
The rooms are typical size for a European hotel and well equipped and clean. The bed was comfortable. Wifi was a bit slow but could be different from a different room.
The pool and spa are in the basement. The pool is a good lap length and kept clean and warm enough for swimming.
The best part (at least for me) was the breakfast. Lots of great choices, all pretty good but they had real French croissants. Light and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. This may not seem like a big deal but to me it is. It seems that everytime I cross the border out of France I leave behind great croissants. Can't get 'em in the UK, forget about it in the US. I found them in Switzerland in a few places but this was a first in Germany.
Will definitely be back to this hotel next time I'm visiting Friedrichshafen.

As a base for Bodensee this is perfect. You will not want to spend too much time in the hotel as the surrounding area has everything you need to enjoy from one of the most picturesque areas in Germany, Switzerland, Austria or Lichtenstein (as the Lake borders all of these and with a car you can visit them all). Friedrichshafen is the centre.

So the hotel for me was very pleasingly modern. At the back (and our room had double doors opening out to make the whole room seem like the outdoors, no balcony needed !) had great views of the lake and mountains or try the sun deck if weather is good, this also great views. I was extremely pleased with the ambience (it was called a "comfort" room if that helps anyone.)

Great buffet breakfast, service was great, one day had the whole hotel arrived at once - (it may have seemed like a disaster if you didn't know any different) - extremely busy but they coped - otherwise very, very peaceful.

Free popcorn machine in reception was a nice touch, when you arrived back after a hard days walking, sightseeing, eating and drinking you needed a cone of popcorn !

Loads of quirky art - Zeppelins and Cows etc also history of the area on display. Rooms also reflect this. Many areas to sit and relax, bar offers snacks most of the day, but you have to book a restaurant place if you want to eat here, there is no chance to be spontaneous but there enough restaurants within walking distance to keep you happy.

Hotel has small spa with swimming pool if you want that, in the winter necessary more than summer, didn't need to try it myself.

OK so now some tips...

Parking here is an advantage over most hotels (6 Euros a day) but you may need to get there early (no reservations allowed) as I have no idea where to go if you cant find a place.

The hotel is in a pedestrian zone, but if you are driving to Hotel Krone you do have access, the sign saying this is small (and if you are English) may not be obvious.

No coffee in rooms or room service available - but breakfast has everything you want. Bring the stuff you like. Mini bar is not too expensive.

Overall this hotel provides everything you need to enjoy a very beautiful area. The hotel staff will make you very welcome and you will be able to enjoy a great break. This Hotel is not a resort hotel.

Room Tip: Top floor at the back.

They have extremely helpful girls at the reception. Clean large hotel with no authentic atmosphere or coziness, which the small ones usually have. Plenty food at large breakfast room, but mostly cheap and the pastry isn't from bakery, but supermarket. Regarding other hotels in area of the sea - a little expensive for value.

This hotel never fails to meet expectation, with a wide mix of rooms from singles to apartments with a mezzanine level.
Topped off with a rooftop sun deck and a spa in the cellar.

The staff are multiple lingual due to the location of the hotel on the edge of Lake Constance

The bar is stocked of everything you can imagine, and the pool is just the right temperature. The hotel has private parking at the rear offering secure free parking, wifi is a plenty even in the rooms.

There are multiple choices of restaurant within a short walk of the hotel, and fantastic restaurants on the quay side a very short walk away with views of the lake.

Hire bikes are. Plenty and easy to book with multiple bike friendly marked routes along the lake.

It's well worth a visit
