This hotel is located on the Lindau island. Because all the major attractions are on this small island, the location is great. The hotel was clean and breakfast was very good. Some downsides : no wifi in the room and no air conditioning (although there was a fan).

the location of the hotel is great, but the room is super small and quite old. we see so many spiders in the room and outside of the window, it's really gross. the breakfast is ok if you are not picky with food. the receptionist is not very friendly and they close the front door at 10pm, so be aware...

Hello, this is sad to read. Our breakfast is with 4 different kinds of cereals, fresh curd, dried fruits, quality assortment of cheese and sausages, 4-5 different Juices, tea, eggs uvm. picky? And yes the door Closes at 10pm because we are a ***Hotel and you wouldn´t pay the price for a 24hrs reception. For this reason you checked in... More

We booked a room at this hotel in early February, but had to change our booking - the hotel confirmed the change. When we arrived in July, the hotel moved us to a low-degree guest house. The official explanation was "plumming problems" ("Wasserschaden" in German), which is probably the standard explanation when you have a double booking or you want... More

Hello, to make a "no-show" on booking is a normal procedure. this does not automatically mean you get charged. it has also a tax reason. the alternative place you get is a undegreed Hotel, right this is a Holiday app. Fresh renovated, clean and nice. So what was the problem? The Wasserschadenproblem is a real problem. I guess you have... More

close to all amenities, ideal position for the town. nice cafe attached. it was extremely hot when we stayed for one night and without air con this was uncomfortable but probably whats to be expected in mid summer. would stay again but at a different time of year.

We stayed at the Insel Hotel for 1 night on our bike trip. The best thing is its location, right in the middle of Lindau Island. The room we had was small and outdated and needs renovation. Nice breakfast. Poor Wifi. For this reason we think it is overpriced.

I booked a single room through the local town tourist office for three days, but when I arrived at Insel Hotel my booking had been misplaced. No problem, the girl at reception apologised and duly fixed me up with two different rooms for the three days, even at the height of the season. I stayed in a fine single room... More

Traveling with friends and only scheduled one night here. It was reasonable, clean, and a welcoming staff. We appreciated their recommendation for a good restaurant. However, the highlight for me was the attention they gave to finding my lost raincoat and mailing it to me at home (no charge!). Wish that I had a chance to return to stay again.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and found it to be quite basic, but the big issue was the size of the shower cubicle - it took some manouvering to get in, using a sideways shuffle seemed to work!!
