Uncomfortable beds, terrible amenities and awful bathroom. The bed for a 3rd person was a foldaway piece of junk. The room was very noisy and had a lot of trouble sleeping. No parking at all. Only bonus was th Wi-Fi.

It's not the first time we spent an evening there and it always turns out perfect. Their Italian food is really good and the wines are great. Service is pleasant and well trained; they all actually care which is highly appreciated. Their terrace is cosy as is their indoor dining. Prices are on the higher side: with a reasonable menu...

I have been visiting this hotel several times, and enjoyed it only once or twice. Here is why: - hotel has no lift but steep stairs, so if You come with heavy luggage it may be quite an exercise to reach 3rd or sometimes even 4th floor. The time when I was happy when the room was on 1st floor....

I liked this place. This is my 7th night here of 8 in the last two weeks and I cancelled another reservation to stay here the second week. The reasons I liked it were not so much the rooms I stayed in which were a bit small but mainly the friendliness and generosity of the staff both at the hotel...

Dear Guest Thank you for your differentiated feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed in general your stay. What happened about the restaurant was a very bad communication internally. In general no guest can drink in the restaurant a bottle of wine he brought by himself for free so this is the rule and in general all employees know this....

I had a business dinner for two people earlier this week. I was not the first time I have been there; in total, I might have eaten at the Schawn 5 or 6 times. The food is simply delicious, whatever I have ordered it was always very tasty and very nicely presented. This time I ordered liver, not because I...
