I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times as well as their sister hotel in Zurich named Town House. Both have exceptional service and atmosphere. The owners and staff are involved and personable not to mention the resturant at Plattenhof is incredible! Whenever I visit Switzerland I love staying at this hotel.

We had our annual dinner at the Hotel Restaurant and we were all really pleased with the quality of the food, ambience and the friendly efficient service. One of our staff members was so impressed that they booked a room for a night. I can really say this is a good choice of Hotel or Restaurant when you are visiting... More

We had the great pleasure of dining at the Restaurant Sento for a business function. Peter recommended the Tavolata for our group (20+ people) which was brilliant. The amazing selection of dishes seemed never-ending and not only tasted divine but were presented beautifully on huge platters. We ate to our hearts content. Fresh, fabulous food and fantastic service. Would definitely... More

Clean, modern hotel with very helpful staff - everyone I've spoken to has great English but allow me the opportunity to use my rather poor German! The room itself is nice. The bed is a low-level one on the floor (402) which is okay for me, but obviously wouldn't be suitable for less nimble/elderly guests. I've enjoyed my stay here,... More

My first impression of the hotel was that it was way too removed from the city. However, the hotel is only a short walk to the tram which brings you to either the city center or old town in mere minutes. It is also only a 15 minute walk to the city through beautiful neighborhoods. The hotel is small and... More

Nice, cosy hotel with warm ambience and very helpful and kind staff. Rooms not very small, clean, some with nice view to the neighbοrhood. Nice breakfast (not warm dishes but very tasteful options like croissants, chesse, etc). You order your tea or coffee and it was one of the best i had ever had. Very helpful staff at the breakfast...

Someone should shoot hotel architects who design glass bathrooms - and rooms without shelves, cupboards or drawers. This is a pleasant, friendly hotel with helpful staff, nice breakfasts, great location. HOWEVER.... There is no place to put anything away - so if a colleague stops by your room all your gear will be on display. And you have to live... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night only and we found the accommodation very nice. The check-in and check-out was quick and the personnel were very kind. Regarding the room, it was not too small I though and very clean and quiet. The best aspect to take into consideration is the position: 50m from the tram station. In 3/5... More

This brought back some memories - I stayed here for an alumni reunion, as the hotel is in the middle of the university district.The room was clean and pleasant, with a lovely view across to the main building of the university.
