The hotel is close to city center and extremely close to the railways so it's always noisy if you keep the windows open. If you close them you won't hear a thing. Thank God it wasn't one of those hot days. Other than that, the staff was nice, wi-fi was great and the facilities were nice.

Hotel staff were very welcoming, service was very good. Prices a bit on the expensive side due to being in Switzerland. Local Irish pub 'Paddy O' Donnellys' in walking distance, very welcoming but again on the expensive side.

I stayed here for one night for a business trip in the local area. The hotel was a quick five minute walk from the nearby train station and easy to get to. I checked in late in the evening and was greeted very warmly by the young guy behind the desk. He told me everything I needed about the location... More

The hotel is located about 5 mins walk from the train station and very close to the downtown. The food in the restuarant was very nicely presented. We discovered several very nice restuarants near the hotel and our main destination (Stadthall) was only about 15 min walk. I thought that the extra cost for a city side room was a... More

My wife and I found the hotel quite good for short stay, within easy walking distance of the city centre. We found it cheaper to walk to and from the city centre. Breakfast was good and customer service was excellent. However we did not find the room we were booked not suitable for long stay.

Spacious rooms with descent standard. Make sure you get a room that is not facing the railroad. As the hotel does not have air conditioning you will need to have the window open warm nights. With trains passing by only feets away avoid this side of the hotel. Descent bar with a good wine selection, the restaurant has a very... More

Stayed here during a business trip, location is good with plenty of parking. Rooms are good and have everything that you need. Dinner wasn't special but okay, the service on the other hand was great. Breakfast was nice but I expected better.
