The elegant lobby and public areas of this modern, family-run hotel on the outskirts of Isny are a welcoming introduction to the 34 contemporary-style rooms, many of which have balconies overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden. Swim year round in the large indoor pool, and relax outdoors on the garden terrace in nice weather.

Room sizes vary, from smaller singles to Number 16, a large corner suite with warm wood paneling, a sitting area, tiled bath and plenty of closet space. The four-person suite is even larger, with two bathrooms and a sitting room. Some rooms have small refrigerators; a well-stocked minibar near the lobby is available to all guests.

Members of the friendly Rimmele family serve their guests from the reception desk to the dining room of the Allgäuer Stuben, the fine restaurant within the hotel (see restaurant reviews). A generous breakfast buffet is arrayed in an attractive room facing the garden, with white linens and fresh flowers. Plenty of free parking space is available in front of the hotel. Bicycles can be rented for €10/day, and the Hohe Linde also offers special packages that include room, gourmet meals, and activities such as skiing and horseback riding.

Daily Rates: Singles €59-69, doubles €98-112, suites (two-four persons) €118-180. Parking included.
