The location is excellent, just off the center of the city and a half-block off the lakeshore. The room was clean but sparsely furnished - no writing desk, but with two low armchairs hard to get out of if you are elderly or not spry.
There is no
elevator, and the stairs were steep and twisty on the upper floors.
Internet service is provided, but it is a shared hot spot with a nearby coffee shop, so service is sometimes slow and not reliable.
There is no secured luggage storage space available, so if you are planning to check out but leaving later in the day you will need to keep your valuables with you.
Overall, this hotel offers an average room but for the price I would expect better.

Short drive from hotel
Don't miss the Dornier Museum if you have an interest in aircraft & technology. Public bus transportation is available with a bus stop at the museum.
We found the hotel difficult to reach. Parking was in a small lot across the street an through an alley. The hotel had a moldy odor, and although the room was very spacious, it had only the bare minimum of furnishings. We found the desk staff
to be less than enthusiastic.
Our plans were to stay at this hotel for only one night to break up our trip from Freiburg to Munich, and we were very happy that we planned it for only one night.
The location is good, however, for ferry access to Switzerland and for the Zeppelin Museum.
