I found the proprietor here very kind and the place overall friendly- ready to say hello on our way in and ask if we needed anything. They held our bags after checkout until we were ready to go get the train. Our family of 4 stayed comfortably and explored the old city, castle, and outdoor cafes. The room was comfortable... More

Would stay here again in a heart-beat! Friendly people (some of the nicest we met in Switzerland actually), clean rooms, central, walk to many restaurants (McDonald's with a play place for those traveling with kids!), cheap laundry on-site, grocery store, parking nearby for those with traveling by car and close to the train station.

It's a youth hostel, and I'm a bit past my youth (by about 20 years), but the staff is friendly and speaks enough English to make you feel welcome. The amenities are... More
