Meersburg is a charming little town on Lake Constance that is nearly a postcard version of what you might imagine a German town to look like. Germans themselves love to go on holiday here, so that should tell you something.

The hotel is situated just on the perimeter of the old town, so its very easy to access by car. It was difficult to find at first, since in order to get to the front door you have to go into a pedestrian only zone. No problem though, the hotel provides a private garage for you to park in, so just park somewhere close (parking area just behind it) and the receptionist will go with you and open up the garage for you.

The hotel itself is very old and authentic, and the rooms are very nicely furnished. Everything is kept very clean and fresh, unlike some other hundreds-of-years-old hotels you'll find in Europe. Our two rooms has very nice bathrooms complete with stand up showers. Reception was lovely and they have a very charming dining room where you can have a breakfast or a very nice dinner.

The town itself is worth a night or two and the hotel is right in the center of the most charming area. Its like an explosion of flowered window boxes. Its an easy, wonderful 10 minute walk down to the lake.

Can you tell I'm impressed? Really, this hotel is a treat. Its a charming town and a charming hotel, not to be missed. See if they have a corner room available so you get the big corner windows..theyre very special rooms.

Excellent location and very friendly service. Our room was ok, but could have been better I think. I'm sure there are better rooms in the hotel, but because we needed a supplementary bed I feel we ended up with one of the less attractive ones. One slight disappointment was breakfast - far and away the least generous we had on our stay in Germany.

We chose the hotel because of the picture, we had no idea what any of the hotels were like in Meersburg. It is toward the top of the hill the city sits on so the storm that trashed the town did minor damage to the Hotel zum Baeren, it was the planters that took the brunt of the storm. We traveled by motorcycle and we were able to park in a garage. The owners and staff were... I can't express the idea how happy we were there. The food was delicious, the beds comfortable, everything was beautiful, and consider that the hotel building has been there a few hundred years. My girlfriend speaks fluent German my German is fair but communication in English was no problem. We are looking forward to exploring the Boden See area more and we plan on staying there again. We stayed in the "Romantic Room" and had everything we needed after we brought wine back to our room. If you're going to Meersburg stay here. I would have liked to stay longer than we did.

We had 4 nights in this hotel and could not fault it. We booked the hotel through their website and chose the room we wanted to stay in. We had the turret room no. 23 on the top floor, a very large room with a table and 2 comfortable chairs in the turret. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and had a seperate bath and shower. The shower stall was extremely small (and we're not big people) and the water kept going from hot to cold repeatedly which was annoying. The only other negative was the bed, it was 2 mattresses in a timber frame which sqeaked everytime you rolled over and the mattress was extremely hard.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and was the typical German breakfast (cereals, yogurt, breads, cold meats) which was fine.
The hotel does not have a lift, which didn't really bother us, but could be important to some people. Also, the hotel is located at the top of Meersburg and is reached from the lower town via a very steep street, again it was not a problem for us, but could be for some.
We found we could not sleep with the windows open as any talking in the street at night (we never go to bed before 11pm) would travel up the narrow streets and keep you awake.
Parking in their garage was very tight but O.K. for the cost of Euro 6 per day. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Meersburg is absolutely beautiful and there is a lot to see and do. Take a ferry across to Insel Mainau which has beautiful gardens.

The hotel is clean and friendly. A family owned and they are all there to help you. The food is good and also the location. The town is really nice. The only thing that misses is an elevator. I was there with my 83 years old father in law, a lot of luggage and kids and it was not that easy to go up all the stairs with everything.
