“Great Location”
Reviewed 30 March 2011

We stayed two nights with my family in two rooms
The location was the main reason for selecting this hotel, it was a great stop over when traveling by car from Germany or Austria heading towards Switzerland or vice versa
The second main reason was a great fish restaurants in the area and the nearby The Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen and the great view of Lake Constance
The ferry was also nearby in a 10 minutes drive to Meersburg taking you a cross the lake to Konstanz city
Hotel was in a main street and easy to find with underground free car parking
The hotel consists of two buildings the first one contains the reception and guest rooms, the other contains the main restaurant, SPA and new decorated guest rooms
Room was a bit old but contains all basic needs and large balcony with free internet access
Breakfast was great and plenty of choices to chose

after a long drive we arrived at Hotel Traube am See. Unfortunately fully booked but very friendly staff. I got to use the internet for free to find us a room in the area.

Next hotel with vacant space was 70 km away. We decided to take a break, which we spent eating at the Traube am See.

Restaurant Traube am See is a place, where you can have almost any kind of meal. There is a "cosy" area like a pub and an area looking like "fine dining". We went for the fine dining and realized the menu was the same all over :-) The restaurant offers a big selection of very different courses and a wide selection of wine "by the glass". We had starters: lobster soup /salat. Main: local wild hare in redwine sauce /Daily fish which was a cod with vegetables. Deserts: applepie with ice and cream /selection of ice.

We both had the versus red, south african wine. Total bill around 70 euros. All in all a decent meal served in a friendly atmosphere with very friendly staff. No stars - just good regional food. I would go there again any time.

This is review #4 out of 6 from a recent trip to Germany. Hotel budget $150 or less. Stayed here for a night in a room with air conditioning and computer hook up in the building across the sidestreet from the office (same one that the restaurant and pool are in ).
Good: air conditioning! (one of only 2 rooms we stayed at in Germany during this heat wave that had it!), restaurant (biggest breakfast buffet out of all the places we stayed), dinner (exquisite food and service), could hook up our laptop in the room to get email (no wifi required), spas in the wellness area, large room, coupons for free drinks, helpful front desk, free parking in a garage.
Not so good: again had to deal with stairs just to get to the lift. When you parked your car, you could not access the hallway/tunnel underground to get to the other building but instead have to drag luggage across the cobblestone and up stairs to get to a lift, no signage to tell you where wellness area is, couldn't use the swimming pool because of unruly children.

Recently had a business trip to Friedrichshafen and this hotel was recommended by our hosts. It turns out that this was an inspired choice. The hotel was well positioned for our visit and was located on two sides of the street. The clever twist is that they had a well decorated tunnel joining the two halves. This also served to house the Sauna room and access to the swimming pool. This was of a good size and had some great features. We eat in the hotel restaurant which was competitively priced. I'd recommend this hotel for business and pleasure and at around £75 a night it's great value.

IIfound this hoitel excellent: very good breakfast, good rooms (for being german :D) and very good service. They even brought me to work with hotel byus with no more money... nice place to stay and very interesting services (little swimming pool, sauna, turk bath, ...). Ideal for families and old people, as well as business travwelers as well.

We are the Horn family and have stayed at the Traube intermittently for the last 20 years and know the family Felix well. They are the consumate hosts and always made us feel as though we were more then welcome. Mr. Felix was the Head Chef in the past times an prepared some of the finest meals we have ever had anywhere. His son-in-law now has those duties but the quality has remained. It was always such a pleasure to see Frau Felix in the breakfast room each morning overseeing what is the finest frustuck (breakfast) in Germany. We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary at the Traube and it was a memorable event. We hope to return for our 50th in 2 more years.
The Traube am See and the Family Felix are most certainly recommended by the Family Horn, Peter & Darlene.

  • Liked — Very comfortable accomodations
  • Tips/Secrets — Be sure and eat here. Try wild dinners such as deer, rabbit, etc. Best breakfast in Germany
