Sure, I've been to fancier hotels with more facilities, but I have to say that the price in this state capital is very good value for money. Just 3 minutes walk from Bodensee / Lake Constance.

When we first arrived having telephoned just minutes earlier, we were asked for the cost of the room up front for the two nights we were staying without having seen it. When I asked to see if first, the assistant showed us a picture. Although she was not happy when I insisted that we saw the actual room before parting with our money, I could understand why when we had to go up 2 flights of stairs. Having said that, the room really was like the picture and yes, the decor and furniture was dated. However, the facilities were adequate and we found the staff to be very friendly. One of them gave me the recipe for a delicious, home made soft drink - elderflower cordial. Although the table holding the typical German / Austrian breakfast items was small, it was adequate and items were replaced as we used them. I can't say any thing was stale in spite of the temperature being in the 30s.

I can't comment on whether the staff are unfriendly to foreigners. I did not witness that at all. It may have helped that I speak German and my husband at least makes an effort to. I saw various people and families of foreign extraction come in and buy ice cream cones to shelter from a heavy downpour of rain one evening as we ate a delicious meal, but I did not observe any rudeness or attempt to get them to go back out and get wet.

We had a hire car and, while there are parking fees around the town during the day times in the week, they offered for us to stay in one of their 2 parking spaces directly across the road from the property. Ok, after the rainfall the car was covered in resin from the trees, but that wasn't their fault!

We found Hans the chef and his wife quite friendly. The food from their restaurant in the evening was delicious. But the breakfast has need for improvement (bread rolls were stale)
Rooms tidy and comfortable. But the whole place could do with a paint job.

The service for this pension was average. Nothing special, but the woman seemed nice enough. We got two nights here at the last minute. My boyfriend and I dropped in for lunch at the restaurant underneath the hotel, having just lost our reservations somewhere else, and were looking for a place to stay for about the same price as our other plans (30 Euros per person per night).
The restaurant was tasty, and the room was spacious and nice. It was on the corner of the building, so traffic was a little noisy (but the location of the hotel is great). Our room included a sink, shower and a large closet. The toilet was just down the hall. The beds were a little lumpy but not awful. On our second day, the service delivered fresh towels to our room. Also, the price we paid included a delicious breakfast, which was very filling. The hotel also offers many brochures, information guides, and maps of the area. The only downside I found was that there was no internet. However, the hotel is not far from internet cafes.

This hotel is relatively cheap and located not far from the city center, but is not friendly to international travelers. When we (2 clean-cut late 20-somethings) went to check in at the hotel for 2 nights, the manager/owner was continuously rude towards us. Nevertheless, the room seemed fine, if small, and while they had a lot of rules about locking the doors and checking out early, we were in a pinch, so we attempted to rent the room.

The manager must have had a bad experience, because they demanded that we look through a list of rules (that were only in german), I guess for legal reasons. When we attempted to pay for the room up front (for the record, 75% of the hotels we stayed in trusted us enough to pay at check out), they used some crazy scooby-doo detective work to (wrongfully) determine that we were trying to pay with a fake credit card. Despite our best efforts to calm them and offers to pay by other means, they called the police on us and we were detained at the police station while an officer (who was very friendly and as confused by the owner as we were) confirmed that the credit card was fine. At least the interrogation room was nicer than the room we would have stayed in. We ended up renting a very nice guesthouse instead, but it was definitely an unneccessary waste of our vacation time.

If you are looking for a cheap hotel, stay away from this one and choose the more centrally located Pension Sonne, or if you need parking, stop by the tourist office and try one of the guesthouses. Either option will save you money and attitude.
