Hotel Speer is in a great location opposite the train station. Rooms were clean & very well serviced. Tea & coffee making facilities in the rooms. Easy walk to the old town section of Rapperswil, the lake & numerous wonderful restaurants & cafes.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night whilst the Christmas Market was going on next door. The hotel has no own parking. They have parking space in a public parking which they share with hotel Schwanen. When I arrived I was told that the hotel parking was full and the reception send me on a quest to find parking... More

Clean modern . Across the street from train station. Easy access to expressway. Parking next door with their own private secured floor in a parking garage for fee. Good breakfast with fee. Excellent Bircher muesli and strong coffee brought to table. Most rooms with balconies except in the back of the building (which would be very desirable) where there are... More

Rooms was decent, and location was excellent. Hotel is directly across from the train station so access is easy. Room was nice and clean. Only issue I had is the tub used for taking showers was narrow and not easy to use.

the hotels in zurich generally prices is high, if you go out side city center 30min by train, here is good and stay reasonable prices, and the city rapperswil also looks attractive rather than 20 years ago.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it is really nice. We took the superior room, it's a little expensive, but oh well, it's Switzerland! It's not a bad price for a 4 star hotel though. The rooms were clean, big, and well kept. Bathrooms were very clean, and it featured a high-Tech toilet, like the ones in Japan and... More
