Visited with family. Convenient location and very well thought out hotel. Comfortable rooms with practical facilities. Eduardo at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. The staff at this place showed us Swiss traditional hospitality. Close by to old town. Happy stay!

The next day I took the tram to the lake and walked from there to the train station, which then took me to the airport. There was... More

The self-service breakfast is excellent - a selection of juices, muesli, fruit, fresh cheese, meats, jams, etc. and lovely fresh bread, with a toaster for your use if you want to make toast. You can even make your own boiled eggs, cooked to perfection, using the boiling... More

I like everything about the hotel! I had to change rooms because the hotel was full, and they were both nice. The staff is friendly and helpful, everything is clean and tidy. It's a really nice quiet place in the city center. I would definitely recommend it!
