We bumped in for a night with my family. We had a lovely little room, very clean, comfortable beds and linings. The food is a bit heavy, local swiss style. Very friendly personal and quite good value for money (compared to Swiss market).

Stayed here for one night as part of a European road trip and found it a good location for the mountain passes along with being in a nice, quiet location. Room was very basic but clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Free parking across the road. Breakfast was also very good. Had a meal in the restaurant and we both... More

Really comfortable bed. Great evening meal and an adequate breakfast. Parking in the square just the other side of the road. Good WiFi. Amazing scenery. Don't be put off by... More

Found this lovely hotel while touring by motorcycle. Out of season a lot of hotels were closed. Luckily this one wasn't and we received a warm welcome and garage space. Very friendly staff, cosy room and excellent food (although a bit pricey as this is Switzerland). Nice breakfast, buffet style. Stunning views!!

We stumbled on this hotel when we had a night between Milan and Interlaken. Situated in a beautiful little village in the mountains. We were thrilled to find it snowing there. We went for a walk in the snow, up a steep hill to the top railway line. We ate dinner in the hotel which was good. Breakfast was adequate... More

We booked this hotel because it is only 2km from the Gotthard Tunnel on our way to Tuscany. The rooms are very basic and small but are clean. Breakfast offers just enough variety but is not the kind of breakfast you want on your holiday. They serve dinner which is of a good quality but expensive (but that is Switzerland...).... More

Clean if sparse room. Restaurant open late and served nice local dishes. Breakfast was decent and staff had good language skills. Really terrific location. A stopover on the way to Italy as right by gotthard tunnel.

Stayed for 2 nights whilst cycling in Switzerland. Wassen is quite a pretty village nestled on the hillsides of the Gotthard pass approach to Andermatt. was incredibly busy when we arrived but were able to get into our room a bit early with minimum fuss. Room was small but perfectly OK, clean and comfortable. I'm a light sleeper so did... More

Very friendly and good price/quality. Well situated hotel and very near to the Gotthard tunnel. We had a nice stay and we had dinner in the hotel. Very friendly staff! We stayed only for one night but a longer journey would have been nice.
