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

central location in Rapperswil oposite the railway staion and close to numerous restaurants and bars. Very friendly personnel, clean, functional, well equiped rooms. For me as afrequent business and leisure traveller definitey by far the best hotel in Rapperswil and surroundings.

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 nice medium-sized hotel, clean and well-maintained, with breakfast. German and international guests. Located under 5 minutes' walk away from the railway station, under 10 minutes to the castle. A Migros supermarket and a few restaurants nearby. Friendly service, speak English, daily cleaning. The front desk closes down at night. The breakfast selection is quite decent, offering most English/German staples... More

Arriving at this hotel by car is a real problem! Nowhere to park in front of hotel even to offload your luggage. Once one manages to find out where the parking is, a way from the hotel, you are forced to haul your luggage from an underground garage to the hotel through the streets. No help from the hotel at...

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

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
