Hotel Gasthof Stift
Ranked #30 of 36 Hotels in Lindau
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Beautiful old traditional building in the main square and close to everything in the town. Nice public areas. Fully modernised room, clean, quiet, spacious and well maintained with a balcony that overlooked the square, great! The staff were friendly and helpful at reception. There is no hostess tray, safe or toiletries in the room. WiFi costs extra to use. Parking is outside the town walls (1.60 Euro per hour during the daytime) so you have to pull your luggage from their to the hotel. The breakfast we had cost extra and was of very poor quality (plus no bread rolls left). Poor service (took our milk and a saucer away to give to the next table as they were complaining). Not worth paying for the breakfast. Overall good room and location but not good value for what you pay.

Room Tip: We had a corner room upstairs overlooking the square on two sides which was great.

Stayed here for a long weekend in Lindau. The hotel is located in the heart of Lindau, next to the church (bells!) and by the market square. It's a short walk down to the lake.

We booked a single and a twin: both were clean and functional. The decor has been updated to give a brighter feel but the furniture is still on the old side. The twin had two beds at opposite sides of the room. Nice views of the square. The bathrooms were both very small, barely room to turn around in and the water in the shower could change from hot to cold without warning. Ok for 2 nights, but not longer.

Breakfast was a decent spread, taken in a nice historic room.

The staff were very friendly & helpful. giving us a good tip as to where to find a free parking space. Reception is not usually staffed, you have to contact the restaurant.

Very nice room overlooking the market square with a view of both churches. The floor was very squeaky- but the hotel was charming. Friendly service and great food in the restaurant. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: room 29 with two dormer windows had excellent views.

The hotel is located in the heart of the old city on the island - an easy walk to anything, including restaurants and the Bodensee. We loved Lindau and enjoyed the hotel, although the there is no elevator and the hallways are a bit dingy. Parking is a short walk away. Breakfast was excellent with perfect service, including preparation of a coffee tray to take up to the room before we were ready to come down and eat. We did not get to sample the hotel's restaurant but did go both nights to the basement bar, which opens at 9 p.m. and was fun. We hope to get back to Lindau (in better weather) and would like to try one of the hotels with a lakeview but would not mind staying Gasthof Stift again.

This is a well preserved hotel in the center of Lindau. The staff is very friendly, although sometimes it takes time to get some things done (e.g. check out).
The hotel includes a restaurant where you can have also lunch and dinner.
The hotel is located in the center of the island. The habor is 5 min walking away.

The reception staff was very friendly and helped us with the train schedule and other tourist information. Breakfast was good also. Basically the whole island is a place where they try their best to preserve their historical buildings. So, we got a hotel that has no lift and air-conditioning - not a nice experience in hot August summer weather. It's located some 10 minutes away walking from the train station. At night the island was so quiet that only bars were open, so buy things ahead long before sunset if you need to do so. Train to Bregenz operates every 30 minutes.

Room Tip: If internet is very important to you make sure you do not get a room at the top most floor.

The location cannot be beat, but the Hotel is old and the plumbing in great need of love and attention. I woke in the middle of the night smelling the toilet! Some staff were friendly, and others not. I would recommend the city to friends but not this hotel!
