Nice place, very friendly staff. If walking from train station head Downhill (with capital D) and it's across the main street from the Casino (that sits in the middle of the park). It had proper signage directing you to it. Beds were comfortable, internet was good, fast and free but breakfast was a bit depressing. I'd walk to a local... More

I stayed a couple of nights at Des Arts. It's nothing special, but it doesn't try to be. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and there was a good shower. The room had lino, rather than carpet, which made it look a bit stark, but hygenic. I'd not go there for a romantic weekend, but if you just need... More

Stayed there for 1 night, it is a small hotel, small rooms, small breakfast room, etc. It is quite decent, there is nothing special about it, but did not create any problems either. The only negative is the room price which is very high compared to what it offers, but this is usually the case in Switzerland.

Neuchatel has very few vacant rooms, so when you find something for Business stay, you spread around the tips. Restaurant is pricey but they do have Hamburgers and PatatesFrit which are just-a-bit healthier than the Macdonalds in "downtown" . Try asking for courtside, although 2nd floor streetside did have constant traffic noise from the Avenue of March 1st. Breakfast is... More

I was just one night in this hotel and therefore my review is pretty much based on the first impression. This was really good. The check-in was very quick and the staff was friendly. The rooms are quiet, clean and there is more that enough space. The breakfast buffet is quite standard for this type of hotel. I would definitely... More

I stayed kn the wellness room with turkish bath and power shower. The room is excellent. Only downside is up there the wifi is a bit slow. But still, not a big problem. The buffet breakfast is generous and varied. Location is excellent. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Would stay here again.

This hotel is very clean, nicely decorated, with luminous rooms and suites. It is well located, close to the lake and not too far from the city centrum. The management provides you with a free parking permit during your stay and there are many of parking places nearby, so this feature alone makes this a very good choice if you... More

We stayed there in a quadruple room, the check in was smooth and quick.Room was ok but bathroom was a quite modern. We took this hotel to visit interlaken, loathenburg and jungfrough. Since we had our own car to travel to the places so it wasn't bad to drive for 45minutes and park our car with free parking.

Good location, few steps from the lake, 5min walk to the harbor, 8min walk to center of town. Clean rooms, large bathrooms, excellent breakfast buffet. Friendly and helpful reception staff (they answered within 1-2 hours when we contacted them via email). Nice size room for 2 parents and 2 girls (8+10 years old). Highly recommended.
