As we arrived tired by car, the free private parking offered was very pleasing. The room was quite large, not fancy, but clean and comfortable. Bathroom was convenient and clean. The north facing windows had a view over the Sion castle, which is a nice plus. Sion's center with shopping and cafes is 5 minutes walk to the west. We... More

The hotel has just been totally renovated. The rooms are modern and adequately furnished. The bed comfortable. Flat screen provides cable television with a very large selection of programs including all the BBC and ITV channels. Insulation seems to be good as I didn't hear any of my neighbours and this despite the wooden floor. The only downside to this... More

Well, this is not a bad place the bed is good, the room is clean and not too small, and front desk is smiling and efficient, on top of that parking is free just in front of the entrance. All the rest is optional… Breakfast is not included and is rather minimalist. We were looking for a one night stop,... More

If you want to combine the decor of an episode Derick, the 70's German detective show, with the ambiance of the hotel in The Shining, then book now. Jobsworth welcome, oppresively hot room and a reception area that could do with a good dusting. Bathroom was clean but you don't want to linger. A last resort.

Staying overnight in Sion, we booked this hotel last minute because they offered the best price. The personnel is very friendly and the bar is reasonnable. WiFi is free and has adequate speed. The rooms however are old and hot due to the carpet, but clean. The elevator and alleyways look tired and in need of some fresh paint and... More

It is relatively clean for such an old hotel. The internet pics didn't match the reality; well they don't convey how old this hotel is. However, the staff where very nice, they provided a bed for our baby free of charge right on the spot although the reservation did not include that. The wifi was good (also free). It has... More

It's what you can expect from a 3 star hotel. Decent, tidy rooms, a bit too warm due to the carpet + air conditioning. Breakfast is very good nontheless. A reasonable place to stay if you are to visit Sion for 1 day.
