We are a family of 2 adults and a 6 and 4 year old. There was a large bed and huge sofa made into a bed. Our room had a kitchen and large clean bathroom. Upon arriving the children were given teddy bears. The staff was friendly, gave great directions, and provided maps. The only downside was paying for parking... More

upon arriving at the hotel late at night, about 23.00 it proved that there was a small confusion with the reservation which needed to be clear. the front office lady was extremely rude and hostile and refused to give us, amongst others, access to the wifi to verify the reservation. she even spoke in german to her colleague saying not...

I stayed here for business for two nights. As I got a room facing the street, and I am a light sleeper, the road noise bothered me quite a bit. I asked for another room and got one straight away, I could even occupy it immediately. The hotel staff was very freindly and accomodating. The standard rooms have a fairly... More

Wifi worked consistently once it finally connected. A taxi was around 40 swiss francs to/from the airport, but we arrived very late at night and didn't want to wait for what was probably easy public transportation. The staff was friendly and the hotel was clean, though breakfast seemed expensive even for Switzerland. The windows were very good at shutting out... More

Stayed there for a week for the Christmas tattoo. Hotel has very friendly staff and a good range of foods at breakfast. Nice area to be in, quiet at night. The bedrooms are pretty clean and tidy with plenty of space just not so big wardrobes for those that are long staying. Nice local shops near by and nice attractions... More

Pleasant enough stay here for a week. Rooms were pretty small with little storage available but not the end of the world. They were more importantly immaculately clean with superb shower facilities. Breakfast was often busy but everything was there for a tasty meal. Staff for the most part were friendly and helpful. Only real downside for me was the... More

Well situated near Conference Center, Badisher Bahnhof and trolley stops to downtown. The hotel is well appointed, highly competent and extremely helpful staff. Hotel restaurant was very good with an excellent wine selection.
