Hotel Reutemann-Seegarten4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
it is part of three interconnected hotels. It is quite old but the advantage is that rooms and specially bathrooms are quite large. Breakfast is good. Hotel parking is available for a fee nearby. The location is excellent as it is on the old harbour. If lucky you will have a nice view on the lake from your room.
As a regular visitor to Lindau we have stayed here many times over the past seventeen or so years. What really makes us return every year is the consistency of the service, accommodation, catering and of course the wonderful friendly, multilingual staff. Sitting on the terrace watching the boats come and go, sipping on a fantastic iced chocolate - what could be better. The breakfast buffet has a great choice of both hot and cold dishes - including the provision of proper tea making facilities. Dinner in the evening is also very good with some dishes available in normal or small portions. During our stay we visited the Pfander via cable car, Wasserburg and Neuschwanstein Castle. This area of Bavaria is beautiful and a relaxing place to visit.
It pains me deeply to have to give this hotel such a poor review - fabulous location, charming, well-maintained hotel, efficient and pleasant staff. Unfortunately the one thing I think you should expect unequivocally from a hotel is a decent night's sleep. Unfortunately, on the first two night we were here, deliveries started before 7 am and woke us (we put up with this). On our last night, there was continuous noise from people shouting in the street outside until 4 a.m. When I finally rang reception to ask them to do something about it, I was told I should expect this and "there was nothing they could do about it as it was a legal discotheque" - I was told I should shut the window - the room was already stiflingly hot with the window open (ajar) and the fan that they kindly gave us going full tilt. I also suggested they shouldn't pt guests in this room if this was the experience to be expected, but was informed the noise was the same everywhere.
This was our second stay at this hotel. We previously went for one night in 2013. Pretty sure we had the same room this time too!! Stayed for 2 nights this time with a lake view room & balcony looking over the outdoor swimming pool. Room is spacious with all you need & plenty of storage space. Breakfast was good though not quite as much choice as other hotels we have stayed in. Keep an eye out if you put jumpers down though as my hubby did that when we got to our table & it had gone when we got back with an orange juice each!! Pointed it out to the staff who soon located it, they thought the guest from the next table had left it there by mistake!! We ate in the restaurant the first night as we arrived later & the food was very good but more expensive than other local restaurants. If you like running like us, they have a little map of a couple short routes in the room which were handy. They seem to be dog friendly as there was a "do not disturb dog" sign in the room. We used the inside pool which was a good size, warm & really nice. Location is great, we drove & found the street easily on our last trip so remembered where to go this time. Hotel car park is just down the road & is signposted - you need your room key to get into it but you can park outside the hotel to unload & check-in. They add the cost to your bill & is secure parking. Stones throw from the boats across the lake & the train station plus the town. Given we have stayed here twice now, we would do so again as lovely hotel with friendly multi-lingual staff.
Room was excellent. View was wonderful. Staff were excellent and multi-lingual. We stayed here during Aero Friedrichshafen, a huge General Aviation event that some liken to the Oshkosh or Sun & Fun events in the USA although it is smaller than these. Still, Aero causes all hotels for miles (kilometers) to book full well in advance and rooms in Friedrichshafen can be at triple the normal rate during the event. I have stayed in several outlying areas for this event including Bregenz Austria (twice). This place was a real surprise. The price of the rooms was in the same range as an IBIS or Mercure but, this is a much nicer facility with outstanding location, great view of the lighthouse from the window during breakfast, short walk to the main train station (Hauptbahnhof), There is an S-Bahn (local train) to other nearby towns including Friedrichshafen, lots of shops and restaurants nearby, a huge Sauna/SPA in the hotel, a heated indoor pool and, robes are provided in the room. There was excellent internet coverage in the room, plenty of electrical outlets and a wonderful breakfast buffet with great coffee. I have stayed in hotels where I paid more than double what I paid here for lesser accommodations. The hotel is on a small Island in Lake Constance (Bodensee). The only downsides are: 1.) It is not easy to find, especially with GPS as it is down a pedestrian way. 2.) The Garage and above-ground lot are not easy to find but.. they are there and parking is reasonable. Parking in the underground garage is a little more expensive but, it is completely locked at night. 3.) The hotel restaurant is quite expensive (but there are lots of other nearby options) 4.) The hotel is really several properties joined together with one reception desk - it would be easy to get lost as one sometimes has to go up one floor, wind through the halls, then take another stairway or elevator from there. 5.) There are non-refrigerated waters set outside of the mini-bar area and these can easily be mistaken for complimentary - they are not.They are €2,60/0,25L Would I stay here again? Absolutely, without question. This was one of the best hotel values I have ever experienced. The service, rooms, and amenities are in the same class as the Crown Plaza in Bratislava or the Hilton in the old city center of Antwerp (two of my favorites) but the price was in the same general area as an Ibis.
My husband and I were welcomed like long-lost friends to this lovely older hotel, which is a sister and connected to the Bayrishcherhof. This was my second visit to Lindau, and I wanted to share its romantic location and view with my husband. The hotel restaurant was quite fine, with lovely local wines and friendly waitstaff, making our evening most enjoyable. The breakfast buffet was typically German, plentiful and included with the room. There is a very nice large outdoor seating area for the restaurant, overlooking the promenade & harbor. A delightful visit made even better by the staff of this charming hotel.
We stopped here with our family jist for food & drink on a day trip to Lindau. It's in a great location 2 minutes from the station, and right on the waterfront by the Mangturm (800 year old watch tower). The tables outside looked nice although watch out for bird poo, there's 100s of sparrows that come right down to your table in the hope of a few cake crumbs! By German standards the prices were reasonable high (€4.60 for a beer) but I'd put that down to the location. The main problem was the service. Initially we had a rather unfriendly young man, then an equally grumpy girl, and finally a cheerful girl. It took 15 mintues to get served, then a further 15 mintues for the drinks to arrive. When we wanted another round of drinks it took a different waitress 10 mintues just to go and find our waitress! Inside looked quite clean & tidy, and the toilets were fine, but it did all look a bit dated. Overall, very disappointing as it could have been great. I would have overlooked the dated interior if the service had been good (or even average), so glad we didn't book the hotel to stay as we had considered it. Advice to the management: get a lick of paint in the restaurant, and please get some better waiting staff!
We stayed at the Reutemann which is one of three hotels that are all interconnected so they share the same facilties. They are the three best centrally located hotels in Lindau right on the harbour with fantastic views to the lake. Our room was comfortable, of average size and well furnished - typically what you would expect from a four star hotel. The bathroom had reasonable storage and an over shower bath with good lighting and a magnifying mirror. It also had a hairdryer but was the type fitted to the wall and pretty poor so ladies if you want to style your hair I suggest you take your own. Complimentary toiletries including body lotion is provided. Our room didn't unfortunately have a balcony but did have a big picture window you can open right up to enjoy the view. (Although this does mean its noisy until midnight and in summer you do need the windows open as there is no air conditioning and it is warm). The breakfast buffet was good but it was the same every day, so bit boring if you are staying for a week. Sausage, bacon and rather rubbery scrambled egg is available as well as the normal continental fare plus fresh fruits - we particularly enjoyed all the strawberries! You can also order latte and cappuccino which is included. It felt quite luxurious to eat breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake each morning. Service was friendly and attentive throughout the hotel if somewhat impersonal. The hotels also have an indoor and outdoor pool, a spa and gym. We very much enjoyed our stay here and Lindau is beautiful with plenty of shops and restaurants and a good base to visit various other places around the lake. A car us not required as bike hire is cheap and the cycling easy, the train station is just around the corner with a regular and efficient service and there are also plenty of ferries. A couple of things we didn't like about the hotel, nevertheless, was the gym, which was very small and poorly equipped with cheap machines that didn't even include a treadmill; no tea and coffee making facilities in the room; car parking as an addtional 12 euro per day charge, which is steep when the hotel is already pricey at 217 euro per night; there are not enough sun loungers by the outdoor pool and it can be difficult to get drink service. This was particularly irritating as we had chosen this hotel especially because it had a pool. If you arrived after about 2.30pm some people just had to sit on the grass. Also because of the height of the buildings a lot of the pool area was shaded from about 4pm.
In the heart of Lindau. This hotel has everything you could ask for a get-away-from-it-all. There is a beautiful pool. Lodging that is four star, food and drink that would suit the most discriminating taste. You can walk the area quite easily. The views from the room can be looking at the harbor. The staff knows you by name. The breakfast is one of the best.
We returned yet again to Lindau and the Reutemann is a favourite of ours. Along with friends we took lake view rooms and had a lovely terrace overlooking the promenade. The weather was disappointing, no fault of the hotel clearly, and so we took advantage of the new swimming facilities; really nice. On the Friday we finally had a very warm and sunny day, however the day was totally spoilt by someone setting up a tent and mic/speakers righ opposite the hotel. These people spent the day blasting out loud music, out of very poor quality speakers. I emailed the tourist office but five weeks on have yet to receive a reply. I would have thought the hotels on the promenade would have sufficient clout to be able to control this totally unacceptable behaviour. This had really put us off returning to Lindau and the Reutemann I'm sorry to say.
