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

We stayed 3 nights in June as we were there for the Ironman 70.3 race. The room spacious enough to fit an extra bed for our child and yet had space for our suitcases and bike. It was a lovely touch for the hotel to leave a bag of bread for our child to feed the ducks. Check in reception... More

We stayed in Rapperswil during a very hot time of year and were so thankful each night to retire back to our hotel and enjoy the AC in the room. We had colleagues staying at other nearby hotels and they were miserable. In addition to the comfort of the room, the staff was very friendly and the location was very... More

The room we had was nice and quiet, make sure you book away from street / railway station. Very kind and helpful staff, breakfast buffet good (Swiss average). Location perfect, as right next to railway station, and parking available too (2-3 min walk), and old city of Rapperswil just gorgeous. Also easy to catch a boat for lake of Zürich... More

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
