Adorable hotel with a wonderful breakfast and charming room. The town of Lindau is on an island on the Bodensee (Lake Constance) with the most delightful walks and cafes. There is a casino right on the island and you can stroll through avenues of Chestnut trees around the perimeter of the island, with views of the Alps and the lovely...

Room: very clean, beautiful and well designed, good wifi, coffee and tea machine. Location: very central, beautiful building, unfortunately no parking lot. Price: best value for money. 108 euro double bedroom with balcony (not a good view though). Don't miss the breakfast! Worth a stop for a relaxing weekend.

I had been to Lindau a few times during a five-week stay in Germany in 2002, and was overwhelmed by the construction projects on the island. It just did not look the same. We parked next to the two churches and (after asking a couple of helpful tourists with a map for directions) rolled our luggage to the hotel. A...

Our recent stay at the Hotel Ratsstuben was a pleasure. We were in the Junior Suite, which was a large set of rooms, a living area with 2 comfortable chairs, couch, desk and chair, 2 lamps, small table and a flat screen TV. A coffeemaker and mini fridge was also provided. Items in the mini bar were a bit expensive....

The old/island part of Lindau is a stunning. The hotel is in a good location for exploring by foot with the lake/port very close by. Spotlessly clean, we had an attractive room, comfortable bed although the bathroom was on the small side. Breakfast was excellent. Only criticism (which would apply to many hotels without full restaurant facilities) is failure to...

Everything about Hotel Ratsstuben was wonderful. We had had a terrible night previously and we came in very early only to be greeted by the owner and offered hot coffee. The room was immaculate and such a pleasure. The bed was like a cloud. It was the most relaxing night of the trip! The hotel is in a perfect location...

A fantastic surprise located in a calm street in Lindau. Very charming, clean, lovely decorated small hotel. We recommend it, the rooms offer comfort and silence to have great sleep and one simply magnificent breakfast that many 5 star hotels do not offer. We will return.

Stayed here for one night in a single room. The hotel is situated in the center of the island, not far from the lake, shops and good restaurants. Hotel is very nicely decorated with a modern white theme throughout. My room was small, as only a single, but this was fine for the one night and the rate was reasonable...
