Recently spent five nights at this pleasant hotel. Perfect location, friendly and efficient staff, spotlessly clean, free and fast wifi . Small single room but adequately furnished with most amenities. One missing item : no small fridge/mini bar. While there was a vending machine one floor down, a fridge would have been useful if a traveler has items ( such... More

If roads are not blocked around the parliament building, then the drive from A6 to the hotel was relatively a piece of cake. Drop off your bags in front of the hotel and make a U-turn and park at the underground facility close to the Casino, which is a mere 5-10 minute walk. The hotel is a block away from... More

Spend 1 night here as part of a 12 day trip through Switzerland and were pleasantly surprised. Whilst the hotel / building didn't offer the ambiance of some of the other hotels we stayed in in Switzerland, it was a very nice, clean and modern hotel in a great location, with lovely helpful and smiley staff and a perfect breakfast...

Small friendly hotel. Rooms are spacious and decently appointed. Wifi speedy. Breakfast is basic but satisfying. Slept very well. Only distraction was the light show at Parliament around 9 PM, it was then I realized the window of the room was slightly open.

A nice hotel in the middle of the city. Quite if your room is facing the back. It has all you need: sauna, bar and jim. Nice brekfest with good bread. It is a good not to expencive place to stay. It is just 50m from the parlament and 100m from casino area and the river.
