Got a room by the water with an amazing view. The location is beautiful and quiet. You can get to the city center by foot in 20 minutes. The hotel personnel is really well prepared and ready to help with information.

Got a room right on the water and it was absolutely stunning. Spacious with a beautiful view of the Swiss alps! The balcony was awesome - you have access to go directly into the water! The room was clean and what I loved most is that you don't hear noises from the room next door since the rooms are separated... More

This was a very special stay for my fiancé and I, as he proposed while we were staying here. The location is very beautiful, right next to the lake and with the mountains as background. The rooms are very spacious, confortable, and with beautiful relaxing views. The food is also amazing, and offers a wide variety. I only wish they... More

one of the best. Out of this world. The rooms overlooking the lake are absolute idyllic. Service in the restaurant can be slow even when there are more waiters than customers. Well worth it . Unforgettable .

A very unique hotel experience in Switzerland. Huge rooms with amazing views. This is my second time staying at the hotel - this time in a 'land' room versus and 'over-water' room. Both are identical and very nice. The water can be a bit noisy at night and the light switches confusing. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed here a couple of years ago for a week, it was a beautiful experience. Staff and Management were first class, food was great and breakfast was a treat. Husband went swimming every morning. Will definitely return.

La Palafitte is an amazing hotel to stay either for business or pleasure. The staff are warm and friendly, everything you could need is on hand. The beauty of this contemporary boutique hotel are the suites on stilts in the lake. The contemporary feel of the rooms is relaxing and welcoming. Then once the blinds go back the view of... More

It is our second time that we hold a seminar at the Palafitte. The impact on the staff is great ,you treat them well because they are your main assets...and they respond...Everyone in our team just loved the atmosphere, the unique setting and the quality of the rooms. The food was good and the staff extremely friendly.

The cabins overlooking the lake offer a great view, and a feel that is more like a beach resort than the typical Swiss hotel. It's a short cab ride away from the town centre, but cabs in Switzerland are expensive. Service is good, as is cleanliness of the rooms, though the rooms are beginning to look a bit worn at... More

I stayed in one of the bungalows beginning of September and I was impressed by the design and comfort of the bungalow. It reminded me of Asia, because the design of the room was similar to a place I stayed in Bali. When I arrived in the evening I was escorted to my bungalow and on the table there was... More
