We are quite positive abt this hotel, quiet nice location. Clean, well mainained, big rooms, good beds, helpful service etc. But it is so called "kurhotel" - wellness hotel. It is fine but they are to much serious abt this. Limited breakfasts, why? Because "our guests are on diet". No bottled water in the room, nor minibar, why? Because "our guests are on diet". Fine, but we were not on diet...
I was lucky to be in that hotel in october 2012. That period of my life was very stressful and I needed badly to relax, to calm down and to slow down. And I could make it in that amazing place named Rickatschwende.
Everything was just perfect! The stuff was polite, the medical stuff was highly professional. All the doctors spoke perfect english.
The rooms were clean and light. There was no TV and bad cell signal (the last one was exactly what i needed!).
The place is located in the mountains and my room had a fascinating view on a Bodensee.
I had a specific diet and all the cuisine was delicious despite the fact that it was low calorie dishes.
I'd like to say special thanx to mr. Karl Frei who is in charge there. He was very polite, very thoughtful, great interlocutor.
Rickatschwende is basically for german speaking people, there were few international gusts during my staying there.
But I highly recommend that medical center.
When I have a possibility I would be happy to come back there and stay for 3 weeks.
I can say that for the 1st time in my life I actually felt that I had rest.
I contacted the Hotel for a weekend & SPA treatment. I was told that there was only one room left. So I confirmed my interest and my intention to have some massages and other treatments during our permanence.
The answer was that the timetable was full because the SPA treatments "are just for the hotel customer ". If I spend two nights in a hotel, I assume I am also a customer of this hotel or *WHAT*?
So to my opinion the staff of this hotel is very unpolite and may be also racist?
I speak with a strong italian accent. I live and work in Zürich since 10 years I was never treated in such an unpolite way.
