Konstanz hotels and hostels
Rock up between November and mid-March and you may find some places closed. The tourist office has a free booking service and a list of private rooms.
Apartment Hotel Konstanz
This 600-year-old patrician house harbours parquet-floored, individually decorated rooms, which are bright and appealing, if a tad on the small side. The terrace has views over Konstanz’ rooftops and spires.
Gregariously elegant, this 19th-century villa’s sunny rooms and corridors are sprinkled with antiques and ethnic art.
Wake up to a pore-awakening splash in the lake at this leafy site in Staad, 4km northeast of the Altstadt.
Hotel Augustiner Tor
This cleverly restored, turn-of-the-century hotel, offers unrivalled value for money. Streamlined rooms exude Scandinavian simplicity with clean lines, crisp white linens and wood floors.
This ultra-chic contender has crisp white spaces, glass walls and a snail-like stairwell. Zen-like rooms with hardwood floors feature perks such as (like it!) free minibars.
A joyous hop and skip from the lake and Altstadt, this late 19th-century pile has warm, elegantly furnished rooms with marble bathrooms; upgrade if you want a balcony with lake view. Skip the €16 breakfast and hit a nearby bakery instead.
Sure, the rooms are basic, but they are light, tidy and a snip given the Altstadt location. There’s a cosy Weinstube if you fancy a glass of wine and bite to eat, and handy bike storage for cyclists.
