This hotel was the perfect setting for us to return to after travel filled, energetic days. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast everyday and the facilities at the hotel were excellent. The staff were attentive and willing to give us as much information as possible to organise our day efficiently. All in all a lovely stay in a lovely hotel and... More

This hotel is located in walking distance to everything! The lake is a block away, trams are 2 minutes away, and train station is only a 15 minute walk (or two tram stops). The neighborhood is excellent, quite vibrant with many shopping, dining and bar options as well as beautiful architecture. The staff at this hotel we found to be... More

Second time staying here with work - Nice, clean hotel with very good continental breakfast and perfect location - near to lake. But there is far too much noise from adjoining rooms, as people move around or when alarm clocks go off. Every time I walked from my bed to the bathroom, it seemed like every floor board creaked and... More

We loved this hotel, the location was out of the city center and only 2 block to the river. The garden and view from our balcony was so nice. The staff & breakfast was wonderful. Sadly, no air conditioning.

This is a great little hotel. I was here for 1 night for work a couple of weeks ago and decided to come back for the long weekend. Nicely decorated, lovely staff. Breakfast is simple but delicious, great range of food but so much it's overwhelming. Area is lovely, 1 minute to the lake and 1 minute to Seefeldstrasse with... More

We stayed for 6 nights in a deluxe room which included breakfast. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with a great bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed the location as we could stroll along the lake into the old town centre.

A nice, quiet location about 15 minutes' walk, or a short tram ride, from the city but close to the lake. Friendly welcome. Superior bedroom not very large but OK for a short stay. Room and bathroom very clean with everything needed (toileteries, hairdryer, dressing gown, slippers, safe, bar, etc.) Excellent breakfast. Possibility to use their spa. Restaurants nearby.

We stayed two nights at the Lady's First Design Hotel and our stay was exceptional. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood near the water, and it's a great walk up the water into town - about 10 minutes.

First off, just wanted to say - I have no complaints about this hotel. Staff was friendly, room was warm, and room was clean. I just wasn't particularly impressed. There wasn't a lot of sunlight that came into my room, so it felt kinda dark and depressing. Room was not as big as I had expected from pictures. Everything was... More
