Best Western Hotel Goldenes Rad

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Small and basic room (very small shower room), looking a little in need of refurbishment in places (nothing major - marks on carpet, chipped shower tray, flickering bulb in shower room), but comfortable bed, and I slept very well. Really good breakfast buffet, friendly staff.

Nice breakfast and great staff! very helpful of them to assist to shift my luggage down from the 4th floor, since there were no elevators at the main building. The breakfast was also something that one should look forward to :)

Excellent location within walking distance to all sight seeing locations. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of variety to sooth every body. Would highly recommend this hotel however do mention if you have mobility problems since elevators are not available. They do have rooms on the ground level. Will definitely be back.

The hotel is located in the center the city in the walking area. The room was cleaned and recently revamped with a view of the shower from the bed (glassed wall). As located in the center, some noises in the street start at 6:30am and during summer Windows need to be kept open as no air conditioning. For a 4 stars hotel, the air conditioning could be part of the Equipment. As we stay during summer with beautiful weather, the fact that sauna was closed was not an issue but this service should be available at other time. Nevertheless, we got a very nice stay at this hotel and enjoy the room as well as the breakfast which is complete.

Would hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody. Lacked ambience, staff commitment and modern facilities. Very cold reception while checking in and no help with any local directions. Terrible wifi connection and very dated property.

The Best Western is located in the heart of Friedrichshafen. A short walking distance to everything of interest. The staff is very helpful. When we arrived the the young lady receptionist indicated where to find the tourist agency to help us plan our stay. The room suited us just fine. Ours was spacious and it was clean. Sound proofed with a mini bar, well working WiFi and a safe. There are actually two buildings the main one and the annex. The annex does have an elevator. So why the average rating? Because there is no air-conditioning and this makes it very uncomfortable at night when you have to leave the widows open... you get all of the street noise..especially at 7A.M. when the street cleaners come in. The windows are double. When closed they do block out the noise pretty well but air conditioning would really help to get a good night's sleep...which we didn't get. By the way, the breakfasts are pretty good

What was described online was far from the reality. It has no great views of the Bodensee , instead most of the rooms faced into a garbage collection point and office buildings with absolutely no privacy. This hotel is not worthy of its star rating. With no air conditioning , a faulty lift and a highly inadequate breakfast (nothing hot provided , just cereals and fruits and confectionary) , we were most disappointed!!

We had trouble finding the hotel and the parking is not exactly "on site" as described. Staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival. Rooms rather stark and austere- reminded me of student digs albeit clean-ish and with all you really needed. Big down side was drilling and banging in the building that started early and seemed to go on all day. Restaurant (in main building) nice and with decent menu. Breakfast very good too.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a mixed experience. The hotel had a separate 2nd building with more hotel rooms but this had no facilities at all except an elevator and the sauna was out of order. The breakfast room was a bit small, specially when all rooms are occupied. The staff was friendly but did not make much attempts to really makes us feel at home here. I doubt whether this hotel really meets the standards of a Best Western franchise. The parking was in a public car park not too far away and getting luggage in and out of the car could be done parking in the pedestrian area. Another thing to mention is that you do not need an alarm as the church bells will certainly wake you up, starting at seven in the morning. But the location was good and many activities in the proximity of the hotel.

I booked a single room last 22nd March and the bed was too small and in a building of a behind street ( not the same building of Goldenes Rad Hotel ) . Bad and old standard . I will never book in this hotel
