“The Restaurant is Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2013

I cannot write up the hotel at all since we didn't stay there (wish we had though). We did eat at the restaurant, however, and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meal. It is an older Gasthaus right in the center of town, surrounded by other restaurants of various types. Nothing to really draw one to the Schwanen then, but if you crave an authentic Badisch meal then I urge you to try this place. Schnitzel, Maultaschen, Kaesespaetzle (which is what we ordered), you name it, you'll find it here and I'm willing to wager you'll go away very pleased. The most difficult thing is of course to choose what dish you'd like. The staff are friendly and old-school Bedienungin, If you can mutter a few words of German you'll be fine and since Friedrichshafen is a touristy city, you will not feel out of place.

This was a surprise.. Small hotel, friendly, clean centrally located and good breakfast. The prices are fair and good. The "mini bar" is a fridge on the first floor and you just write down what you had and the prices are realy good. Will stay there anytime again when we are around!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

This hotel-gasthof was delightful in every way. It is a traditional bed-and-breakfast style hotel on the beautiful Bodensee (Lake Constance). Our double room included a delicious and generous, traditional German breakfast, with all the coffee you care to drink. We also ate dinner at the hotel the first night---it was excellent. It was almost as if we were guests in the owner's home, as opposed to hotel guests. The atmosphere is traditional and cozy; the staff warm and friendly. They were always looking after us, and helping us with such things as arranging a taxi to the airport for our very early morning departure on the last day of our vacation. I am not completely sure, but it seems as though the hotel does not have handicapped access, as we did carry our luggage up a flight of stairs to our room. We did not, however, inquire as to whether they had handicapped access, so I cannot say for sure. I really cannot complain, as we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves while staying at the Schwanen, but, the beds were slightly hard in my opinion and I found it to be just a bit chilly in our room at night. There was a radiator, but it did not seem to be putting out much heat, even after turning it up. Again, we did not comment to the front desk about this, as it was not really an issue. Had we mentioned it, I am sure that they would have done something, as they were completely accomodating in every way. The Schwanen is a delightful stroll away from the lakefront, many shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed for two nights and found this traditional Gasthof very welcoming and friendly,our rooms were very clean and tidy.Breakfast was vast and varied and set you up for the day,in fact the food was so good we actually ate our evening meal there both nights,the service was very good too,the waitress even remembered i liked extra spaetzle.Parking is offsite but it is only a two minute stroll.

According to the hotel booking websites the hotel had no rooms available. This wasn't true - booking directly over the phone was easy. It's a modest pale blue house in the middle of Friedrichshafen's shopping area. Entrance is through the restaurant. Our room (42) was a proper little apartment with cooking, dining and sitting areas. Not bad for 90 Euro. Friendly service, decent food and good breakfast. Ideal if you're visiting the Zeppelin Museum which is 5 mins walk away, not far from the stations and buses either.

This is not a luxury hotel but does the important basics well. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast is good and plentiful. Food at other meals was well cooked, tasty and good value. The service, though, was outstanding. The family and everyone working at the hotel go out of their way to ensure you have a good stay. The location is good, although the view from the window was not the most attractive. Overall, a well-recommended, good value for money basic option.
