The staff at this perfectly allocated hotel are incredibly friendly. The rooms, though lacking the fancy water view you might get down the street, are more modern, and perfectly comfy and clean with nice balconies. The resto and bar downstairs are popular for non-hotel guests as well because they are that great. The free pass to Aura Vita health club... More

This was our second visit to this hotel and compared to 3 years ago, it is even better. The rooms got an upgrade and they really look nice. Excellent beds made us sleep like babies. The suite is also used as a family room, which is not completely what it is. It misses some storage space and a larger bathroom... More

Rooms very clean and nice. Perfect location. Friendly staff. Had a family suite that was very roomy with nice views! Beds a bit hard, but comfy pillows and nice fluffy comforters! Bathroom could use an upgrade but was very clean ( that's being somewhat picky). Breakfast average

Warm welcome, personnal friendly and helfull. Rooms are pretty large and really clean. Parking is city underground one and expensive.(20 swiss francs a night!). Nice view over the lake and old city. Nice bar and lounge, with outside sitting places, large choice of beverages and cool bartender.

Part of the Best Western owner run chain the Speer extends the hearty welcome one expects. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation. Rooms seem uniformly decorated with up to date features and of a decent size. Staff very helpful and a great location opposite the train station and taxi rank. The old town and lake are... More

The hotel was nice enough with breakfast served in the morning. Our room was on the top floor and had a nice balcony with patio furniture. I would have given it five stars, but we were told that there was not any air conditioning in the hotel, but later found that other guests had air conditioning in their rooms. We... More

I only can reflect the other reviewers' positive remarks. The hotel is appealing, centrally located and staff is very welcoming. We booked and received the suite on top floor what enabled us to have both best sides rooms have to offer: a terrace overlooking parts of the lake and a tranquille panorama of the castle and into (historical) housing next...

A good hotel located very central. The rooms are comfy, bathrooms are ok - shower pressure a bit volatile - service with a smile and a good breakfast buffet. We had a room on the top so had a very nice roof balcony overlooking the lake.

I spent only 1 night at this small but nice hotel. Well situated opposite of the train station. Great welcome from the receptionist who was very kind to lend me a swiss adaptor for my laptop charger. Good bar, impeccable refurbished room, full option breakfast. Lots of restaurants in the neighourhood with good food.
