We had a very memorable three-night stay at this hotel. The building is certainly distinctive (in pink!) and upon entering, you walk upstairs to the reception and restaurant on the first level. We had booked a parking spot, and my husband was shown into their small garage, just underneath the hotel. The hospitality offered here was warm and unmistakably old-fashioned. We mostly dealt with two older sisters, who had been doing what they do for many decades. They only spoke German, and we did notice that the other guests were almost all German-speaking. A generous breakfast spread was served in the traditional German restaurant complete with white tablecloths and tea or coffee, brought to the table in silverware. Our room (perhaps recently renovated) was, in stark contrast, minimalist, modern and generic, but also comfortable clean and perfectly adequate. The location was fantastic, with plenty of local restaurants, a shopping mall just next door and everything in Konstanz an easy walk away. All in all, an authentic German hospitality experience with loads of character and a convenient location.
We stayed here for 6 nights and found this Hotel to be just as we wanted. We had no need to get a taxi from the Railway Station to the Hotel as it was a short walk away. No lift in the Hotel, the reception is on the first floor and our room was on the second floor so cases had to be carried to these levels. It is a traditional family run Hotel with caring service. There is no air conditioning but a large fan was provided in the room. The room was to the rear so no street noise and it was of suitable size and clean. Breakfast was of a good variety and the Dining Room served as a Restaurant, for evenings. The location is ideal to walk to the Station, Harbour, Shops and all sorts of eating places.
Having seen Goldener Sternen listed as a modest, one star hotel on another popular site, we were hesitant to book here.
We booked anyway because of the location, parking availability and moderate price.
Even though it's on the main road, we missed spotting it as they'd changed the exterior color.
Arrival and parking were tricky, as they never answered the phone. We had to park briefly on the street (with all the difficulty of finding a space) and run to the hotel to get the proprietor to open the garage.
The room, while a bit dated, was clean and comfortable - fine for two people and weekend luggage. The bath was small, but spotless, with adequate towels, soap and hot water.
The breakfast was better than average for a small place, with several breads and rolls, many cheeses and coldcuts, and best of all - smoked fish. The only warm food was boiled eggs on Sunday.
We had dinner at the restaurant, as well, and were quite satisfied.
We'd stay at Goldener Sternen again should we visit Konstanz.
Just returned from a trip to Germany and Switzerland.
I had the pleasure of spending three nights at the Goldener Sternen. This is a wonderful family run business.
The location is perfect, walk to Old Town, walk to the lake in just minutes.
The hotel is old, spotlessly clean and well maintained.
Our room was quite spacious with comfortable beds and oh so clean.
Breakfast was very good and there was a great selection to choose from.
We had dinner here on our last night in Konstanz.We saved the best for the last.
Dinner was superb, really an enjoyable meal, great food , great personal service.
A wonderful family that make you feel at home.
I would highly recommend this hotel
Easily reached on foot from the railway station. Our room was facing the road, but no noise to be heard. Right on the edge of the "Old Town" - location is perfect. We only had B&B, the breakfast was excellent. All fresh, wide choice. Room was big enough for 2 people incl. luggage.
Would definitely recommend, and will stay there again next time I'm in Konstanz.
