Stayed in the BW Hotel Goldenes Rad Hotel last night.
Booked 3 rooms on booking.com but when we checked in they claimed we only booked 1 rooms, despite having the confirmation to show the receptionist.
“Luckily” they had 2 rooms left, so we thought we could relax. Oh how I wish we had to change to a different hotel.
Most of the hotel rooms are in a building over the road. This building has one very small, dodgy looking lift and a very dimly lit spiral staircase.
We paid £95 (€109) for each single room, including breakfast for this 4* hotel. In all seriousness, £15 would have been too much.
The room was awful. The only positive you could say is that the bedding was spotless. The carpet is as thick as a sheet of A4 paper with no underlay, and is covered in suspicious stains (see photo).
The bathroom was awful, the shower was a joke, no hot water and it only ran at a trickle, unless you are happy with a freezing cold shower. The radiator in the bathroom was minging (see photo).
There are metal shutters on the windows that you can close but then makes you feel like you are inside a prison cell.
The walls & door are paper thin so you can hear everything from the rooms next door and the corridor.
Went to breakfast this morning but it’s far too small for the size of hotel and there wasn’t any free tables.
To call this hotel a 4**** Hotel is an insult to other 3 & 4**** hotels and also an insult to people who stay their expecting a 4**** Hotel. I have never stayed in a 3* hotel which was not superior to this property.
If I would have given a 0/5 review I would have done so.
Please book a different hotel in your visit to Friedrichshafen less
