A bit spendy for a Best Western, but the room was roomy, nice balcony with table and chairs that would have been nice to sit on with a significant other and overlook the road and train station, and a bit of the lake if you look way right. Internet was free and not too bad of speed. Bed however was... More

This is a fantastic hotel with some of the best staff we have ever encountered. Hotel was booked through Nirvana Europe who were also great.

Stayed here last weekend and the hotel is clean, modern and excellently located on Lake Zurich. Opposite the main train station and nearby shops, restaurants, the marina and McDonalds.

This hotel is wonderfully located in a large town alongside Lake Zurich. It was our base for work related visits north of Rapperwil. The very early check-in was appreciated. The rooms are excellently furnished, comfortable and clean. The tea making set in the room was very welcome. The service is very friendly and excellent. A request for an iron was... More

Considering Rapperswil in general is a small place, this hotel makes the stay in this small place quite cosy. The staff are impeccably polite, esp the evening receptionist (Laura). The breakfast buffet was just right. The location of the hotel, being in front of the train station makes it more valuable. Oh and before I forget, the little coffee/tea set... More

A Migros supermarket and a few restaurants nearby. Friendly service, speak English, daily cleaning. The front desk closes down at night.

Arriving at this hotel by car is a real problem! Nowhere to park in front of hotel even to offload your luggage.
