I have stayed at the Dellago on numerous occasions and always feel comfortable and taken care of there. The staff creates a unique space at the hotel and all of the rooms have their own special personality. The food at the restaurant is quite good and I truly enjoy their wonderful breakfast buffet. While not a luxury hotel it has... More

My fiancé and I stayed in the room "coffee and cream" for a weekend... Getting a room was quite impossible the last year, however this year we got it. With a great website in Internet and such a expensive price, we came to the hotel with a lot of expectations. Although the view was quite impressive, the service didn't meet... More

It is a pity that this hotel is let down by the staff. With the exception of the girl on the reception that checked us in we found the rest of the staff to be rude and indifferent. It is a shame really as the hotel has a fantastic view across the lake, rooms are comfortable and the location is... More

We wish we had booked a second night, but for sure next time we book a room with lake view. The highlight was still the lounge bar. Really cosy just on the lake with nice sofas to relax and enjoy drinks. The Seafood restaurant also kept our tastebuds busy for a few hours. A few dishes were fusion Asiatic with... More

We're usually fans of chic, upperclass hotels and weren't quite sure what to expect in the Dellago, but the description on the homepage made us curious - and we weren't disappointed! While the rooms aren't luxurious, they are quite original and in excellent condition (felt rather new) which for us is more important than a marvel bassin. Staff was friendly... More

Having to wait a good 5 minutes before anyone turned up at reception on arrival was slightly disconcerting... We had booked a room in the annexe at what seemed a bargain rate compared to rooms in the main hotel. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is: the annexe is no more comfortable nor clean than a... More

This hotel should have everything to please. The location, the rooms, the potential is there. It however shows you why service and hospitality management is crucial for creating satisfied customers. The room lacked the correct soap and shampoo bottles you can expect when you pay 370CHF per night. The reception was empty from personel 85% of the time we passed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dellago was built as a small family hotel around 1907 and has since seen many concepts & transformations, but it has never been completely restructurated: this place has style and patina.as a holiday hotel, there is not enough space, as a design hotel we are much too improvised and for families we are far from being suitable, but for a relaxing city escape in jeans and chucks it's absolutely gorgeous. 21 simple or stylish, basic and luxurious, tiny and huge but always surprising rooms, an excellent fish and seafood restaurant, cool sound, wacky people and a lake lounge where your feet sometimes literally get wet are all perfect reasons to forget about the daily hassle for a couple of precious moments. ... more   less
