Considering we were a group of 3, In some of the photos of the bedrooms, some double bed rooms were big enough to fit additional furniture but we were given a standard size with additional single bed in.The first floor seems to be dedicated to business visitors so I assume those images are for those rooms. The location is great,... More

Awful experience! Lack of politeness and just like that , " I am sorry you are staying in a apartment nearby...." Even when my room was payed and booking confirmed one month in advance....Lot of dust in the supposed "lovely apartment" and a smell like old, not to mention working and construction going on from 7:00 in the surroundings....Not even...

I have spent one night in this hotel for business reasons. Not to mention, I would be clearly annoyed to have paid the price on my own. Old fashion hotel, soap dispenser in the bathroom like in a 1-star hotel, friendliness of the staff (especially during breakfast) to be discussed... And so on and so forth... Clearly not the standard... More

The rooms are comfortable and well appointed with drink-making facilities. The balcony, for smoking, was welcome and gave interesting views of the square and main street. Excellent breakfasts. Easy communications, e.g trams outside and station a few yards away.

Close to the station, plenty of shops and restaurants near the hotel, in walking distance from the lake. Quiet, clean and "retro"! The staff was friendly, breakfast was simple but good, room service was excellent. Strong plus: the balcony we had in our room, which gave us the chance to enjoy the nice summer weather

I never write reviews and I never complain. But this one was too much. You would not suspect it if a hotel like this one, but I experienced certainly the most impertinent service ever in my life. Friends accompanying me were as flabbergasted as I was. The night porter (on a matter of credit cards) was simply impertinent. Things like... More

Good hotel for business purposes as it offers free wifi with excellent connection, it is very close to the tram, banhof enge and Paradeplatz. Breakfast was quite good and included in the price. Although the hotel seems to have been renovated in some of its features recently, the decoration of the lobby and the hallways seem quite old. I think... More

We booked the New Year's Eve package and stay at hotel Ascot. Our room was totally standard with a small bathroom (toilets were leaking and shower head broken)… We were waiting for something better with that category of price. The access to the VIP area for fireworks was really good with free food and beverage. We would have appreciate a... More

Hotel Ascot is a nice establishment. Our room was very comfortable for typical small European hotel rooms. It was well appointed with everything we needed for a 1 night stay on a layover. The location was very convenient : this hotel is across from the train station to the airport. There is a Starbucks adjacent, an Asian restaurant and a... More
