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. Also the commute by train from and to Zurich is well organized which makes this hotel also suitable for... More

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

Rooms very clean and nice. Perfect location. Friendly staff. Had a family suite that was very roomy with nice views! Beds a bit hard, but comfy pillows and nice fluffy comforters! Bathroom could use an upgrade but was very clean ( that's being somewhat picky). Breakfast average

Warm welcome, personnal friendly and helfull. Rooms are pretty large and really clean. Parking is city underground one and expensive.(20 swiss francs a night!). Nice view over the lake and old city. Nice bar and lounge, with outside sitting places, large choice of beverages and cool bartender.

Fantastic stay and comfortable bed for a work trip. Air con would have made it great. Hotel restaurant amazing but busy. Great mini bar and power shower. Nice clean and comfortable. Would recommend, right opposite train station and set in a lovely area, great shopping and restaurants.

Part of the Best Western owner run chain the Speer extends the hearty welcome one expects. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation. Rooms seem uniformly decorated with up to date features and of a decent size. Staff very helpful and a great location opposite the train station and taxi rank. The old town and lake are... More
