From the moment you walk in the door, staying here is a pleasure, checking in is simple and fast, the rooms have everything in its right place, and the quality is outstanding all round. The room has been set-up in such a well considered way, I rarely wanted anything that wasn't already provided, including all the small details. Most hotel... More

Man at reception was incredibly welcoming and helpful. Room good. Bed cosy. Bathroom dated but clean. Lots of TV channels including the ever essential BBC! Coffee machine - complicated .... Breakfast ( a la carte) expensive and average - definitely room for improvement. Overall a very friendly place to be given that it is a large chain.

The staff were friendly and as we arrived early were able to leave our bags there and go out and by the time we got back they were in our room. The tram stop is right across the road and we found it very... More

Quite a good hotel, clean and modern. Tram just couple mins walk. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Bed was ok and fine. Pet allowed! Spacious, quiet and clean. Nothing very fancy but good! Free public transport pass which comes in handy when using the trams and bus to browse around the city. Dogs basically can go anywhere except supermarkets and... More

I really recommend your stay at this hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms a very clean and comfortable and you get a nespresso coffee maker in you room. It is not very near to the city centre but it only take 20 min wok to get there.

A hotel designed for conventioners on expense acccounts and for affluent Americans who like staying in a safe cultural bubble in the wilds of Switzerland.
