Stayed here for a few nights on business. The rooms were of a good size for a european hotel in such a central location. Very clean, tidy and neat. The staff could have not been more helpful and the breakfast was good. I would happily stay here again, not only on business but also for pleasure.

Nice, clean, spacious room right in the heart of the small village. Breakfast buffet is a nice addition. Our room faced out the back and was quiet. Front desk staff were very kind and helpful. Iris was particularly helpful with dining and activity suggestions.

My first time in Rappersville, first time in this hotel. The location is walking distance from the lake and from the area where some nice restaurants are located. The main road and the train station are in front of the hotel, which is comfortable but also not pleasant. The rooms are clean and nice and the personnel is really kind....

Just less than 5 min walk from railwaystation, and from harbour "Fischmarktplaz" and the old town starts just around the corner. Rooms are neat, clean and quiet. Bed and pillows are good, extra bed is sofa-bed but a good-one. Bathrooms compact, but wery clean and with Geberit shower-toilets! Polite and fast service, breakfast room is spacious and breakfast itself is...

The location of the hotel is excellent. It's across the train station and very close to the city center. The hotel was quiet although it was close to the main road up front. The breakfast was very good and the waitresses were very friendly. We were there for an international conference hosted by HSR. I would suggest this hotel to...

Been here for a business trip, nice rooms, very nice desk service, good beer choice at Mojo bar. Close to the rail station, the old town, the famous wooden bridge. But the rubber ducky in the bathroom wins it all :)

It was very good and nice to stay in the Hotel Speer. But I suggest to check what is available in your room (I mean extras) and what id not, in order to avoid to pay for extras that you do not used (food and beverage).

Ideal when you travel by train with a heavy suitcase, the hotel is right next to the station. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had a room in the back, very quiet. But I can imagine a room in the front being more noisy.
