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.

The hotel is very minimalist, verging on spartan, with large airy rooms decorated in ash effect furniture and flooring. This is very nice in the summer when I was there but I fear somewhat unwelcoming in the depths of a gloomy winter. My room was next to the breakfast room and wit hthe lack of sound insulation this was ideal... More

The hotel is quite elementary, clean enough, breakfast not too much. Unpleasant that there is concrete on the floor in the hallways, we stayed for a week, only once, there was no hot water. The location, however, is good, near the lake, near the funicular to the train station, near a good place to eat good crepes. Incredibly expensive for... More

Basic hotel, very well located. Rooms a bit tiny, but clean. Free wi-fi. They give you a parking permit to park for free on the streets. Didn't cause me any trouble. Didn't try the breakfast, as it was not included in our rate, but my wife did and enjoyed it. We walked everywhere we wanted to go in Neuchatel. There's... More

We stayed one night at the Hotel des Arts during a stopover in Neuchatel. The hotel is conveniently located near the university and the art and history museum, just a short walk from the town centre. Our suite was rather small but spotlessly clean. It was located at the rear of the building and was very quiet. The only problem... More

We just stayed here one night on our way to Italy and enjoyed this fresh and friendly hotel. It vibrates youth and comfort. We reserved a sort of mini suite : room, bathroom and small living room. We really enjoyed this room, plenty of space with all amenities. We were awoken by the smell of freshly made coffee and enjoyed... More

When my friend and I walked in to the room I had for the night, his immediate comment was on how small the room was. It also had a unique arrangement: the shower opens in t the bed room (sort of the bed), not the bathroom. Other than that, it is a normal hotel, well located in Neuchatel. The service... More

A simple hotel, bearing similarities to a youth hostel. When I tried to check in, the front desk officer put up a sign that the front desk was close and she disappeared for ten minutes. They do not have parking, contrary to what they claim, they only provide you with a permit, and you have to look for it yourself... More

Great location and great big rooms. We stayed at the fifth floor and had a great view and the room was really big for us three. The staff were very friendly and we got help with both parking and a boattour that they offered for free. Breakfast was not included in the price. The bathroom was huge and updated. No... More

Very disappointed. and very noisy room right next to the elevator. Room size wise was 'lilliputian'! I was never told this when I booked it. They just said little room for cheap rate, even after I said I wanted a quiet room away from the elevator Shower stall opposite the bed and sink/toilet in a separate room. There was no... More
