My expectations are usually higher with Swiss hotels as they usually have higher standards on detail and operational excellence. This hotel therefore was quite disappointing for Swiss standards but average for international standards. The hotel is right at the train station, which is very convenient. The hotel itself is quite old and broken down and is in need of renovation.... More

Owners have no values. I can not believe that we were not allowed a refund when we cancelled a booking 3 months in advance as my mother was diagnosed with cancer. we paid a full week in advance and gave them medical records. no refund for whole week...how callous? they tried to explain that their policy did not cover this....

The restaurant has a fabulous Swiss specialty menu and great atmosphere. We ordered traditional Swiss delicacies and thoroughly enjoyed them. The waitress is lovely and the bartender is an absolute cracker. We had a great night out hear. Highly recommend.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of a trip on the Glacier Express. The hotel is located just across the street from train station, so it is very easy to find. We were very happy with the hotel, the rooms we had were nicely made up and while the bathrooms were clean and serviceable, the decor was a... More

Came here a ski trip with a group of 20. The room was nice. The pillows are very soft. You are right in the middle of town can easily walk to the slopes. It's also next door to the food coop. You can buy snacks and booze there. Each room has a fridge. Bring your own shower gel as they... More

The room smelled like cigarette smoke as soon as we got there. We raised the issue with management and, initially, nothing was done. Subsequently, after about two days, they offered to change our room, but they never acknowledged there was a problem or that it wouldn't occur in any other room. We left.

This was - no question - the most expensive hotel we've ever stayed at. For £250 a night you get a room for the night right opposite the railway station, but that's about it. The location was the only thing going for it. There's a Co-Op right next door for snacks and drinks. I'm not sure if this was good... More

Stayed here for four night with my family. We paid 498 chf. a night. The service was bad, the room was dated and the food not even worthy as dog food. Do not know how this place can be a 3 star hotel - they do not even deserve 1.
