We (couple) stayed at the Best Wester Hotel Speer for one night. The Hotel is directly oposite the train station yet the room we got was very quiet and provided all the amenities you are looking for in a four star hotel. While it doesn't look grand from the outside, the lobby, the bar and the rooms are modern and... More

I stayed in the hotel with my wife for 4 nights. We had a special rate and payed less than the normal price. The rate we payed was ok for a 3 star hotel and that is what this hotel really is. The room was small, the bath ok but it took very long time to get warm water and... More

Thank you for your feedback about your stay at our hotel. Of course, we regret that we did not receive the customary “positive” feedback we are used to. Under such circumstances, it would have been beneficial for us if you had let us know after the first night. Our emphasis is completely on the needs and wishes of our guests,... More

We'd stayed at the Hotel Speer previously and had been pleased with our choice so looked no further when returning to Rapperswil this time. Though our room was fresh and perfectly maintained and suited us well with reliable free internet, the lack of air conditioning meant we needed to leave the window open. No problem - except the fifteen minute... More

Thank you for your feedback about your stay at our hotel. The advantage of the location, in one of the loveliest small towns in Switzerland, unfortunately had a disadvantage in this case. You are in the midst of our lively town and also somewhat at the mercy of the church bells, which ring every hour at night. Unfortunately, we have... More

Reasonable and comfortable modern hotel with minibar, tea and coffee facilities and was an acceptable price. The hotel had free internet access. The hotel had chargeable car parking although it did take a while to find.

The location of this hotel - across from the train station and near the lake and other shops and restaurants, is incredibly convenient. Service was very helpful, friendly and accommodating, and the staff speaks English. They were able to accommodate our requests (for an iron, for luggage storage) easily and even volunteered making our breakfast-to-go when we had an early... More

On my numerous trips to Rapperwill this hotel is definitely recommendable. Friendly and helpful service combined with rooms, although on the small size, which are well equipped and a good breakfast make this hotel a very good experience for business travelers.

On my numerous trips to the Zurich area the Hotel Speer stands out as a great value, a good location (on the train line) and the very courteous staff. The rooms are on the smaller side (it is Europe) but they are more than adequate. The location is great - the city of Raperswil is a great little town. There... More

I found myself alone with my son and no baby sitter was available. The director offered to look after him during my ironman race. Very kind of her and way beyond her obligations. On top of that the hotel is clean and modern. Not luxury but very good any way.

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
