This hotel is in a good location just a short walk from the lake. The receptionist was very pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable. Continental buffet breakfast was included. Free parking for our motorbikes.

Hotel location was excellent being centrally located and very near to the lake - although being so central (and our room on the side) was quite noisy at times. The public areas were very clean, modern and tidy but the bedroom was a bit of a disappointment - the toilet really needed a good clean (quite badly stained) and the...

We selected this hotel due to its location with a parking. Our room was at the right corner of first floor. It was extremely hot when we entered the room, it had two window both sides, thin and narrow curtains were unable to protect direct sun. I don't know how visitors handle it during hot summer days. They have WiFi...

This is a small friendly hotel with parking and a lock up for bikes. The location is very good, only a few mins walk from the lake, the main area of town and the station. My room was reasonably furnished for this standard of hotel and was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good.

The check in wasn't open when we arrived,so we stood around for an hour with another group waiting in the rain until 4 o clock. Not a good start. Reception was clean and well managed,but there wasn't a lift so we had to carry heavy motorbike luggage up 3 flights. The room was clean, but we soon discovered that the...

Helvetia is small hotel, in the centre of Bregenz. Room we got was maybe even disappointing, almost like student dorm without any perks. However, it was clean, large enough for two, and although it came without AC or a fan (there is some device for drawing air in/out of the room on the window), it was not hot and stuffy...

This hotel is clean and well located being very close to both the town centre and the Bodensee. The staff were very helpful and the parking was useful although not many spaces. However, the rooms could do with some serious updating. On the plus side the room and bathroom were spotless but the room itself was pretty basic. We had...

Excellent location in the centre of Bregenz, 10 mins from Festspielhaus and excellent value for money. The room was clean and comfortable with an end your bathroom and lovely shower. The buffet breakfast was a fresh range of breads, meats and cheeses, fruit and muesli and ran until a civilised time in the morning! Very friendly staff. Excellent all round.

Excellent location in town. Close to the lake, station and all the shops and bars. On-site parking came in handy and breakfast, simple and ideal. Rooms are basic but quiet considering their proximity to a major route. I've worked in Bregenz for several years and feel cross that I haven't booked in before! A very pleasant stay.
