Delightfully situated by a lake with mountain views, Hotel Schwanen is quiet, elegant, genteel and relaxing. My bedroom was spacious and bright, with excellent lighting for relaxation, reading and work - the bed was supremely comfortable - the bathroom well equipped - with outstanding storage facilities and good coffee, a safe and a fridge. The ONLY criticism I can think... More

The Hotel Schwanen occupies a prime lakeside position in a pretty building, recently renovated inside and out. Booking was direct and unfussy and the hotel is pet friendly (at no supplementary charge). The welcome was warm and friendly and accompanied by the offer of a complimentary drink. The rooms are decently proportioned and comprehensively equipped (including free internet access) and... More

Dear friends had recommended that we stay at this charming hotel - an interesting mix of old and new worlds - as an alternative to the usual stay in Zurich. This proved to be an excellent choice as we enjoyed the charm of a beautiful and historic town while luxuriating in the comforts of updated rooms decorated in the most... More

We had a horrific experience at this hotel. My husband has suffered from an allergy brought on by pine nuts for many years. We stayed at this hotel for one night and went to dinner at its restaurant. A buffet was offered. To make sure my husband would not eat any pine nuts from any dish at the buffet, we... More

I got a deluxe room with a balcony overlooking lake Zurich. Absolutely beautiful, although too cold to enjoy it in January. The location is Rapperswil is ideal. The parking situation in the garage sucks and I had problems with it. The employees were very nice and helpful. They fixed my shower head and replaced my broken tassimo...with, unfortunately, a broken... More

I stayed 3 nights in room 305, which is a very nice room and the size is quite big (for Swiss hotels). The hotel is located direct at the lake and there is no traffic therefore its very quite. I ate once the breakfast, but its not worth the price (25CHF is too expensive for what is offered). Positive: room,... More

Our friends in Zurich booked for us this hotel for one night. The room was very comfortable with unexpected amenities like bathrobes and slippers for each of us, apples with knives and napkins, an espresso coffee machine that can do tea too, free wi-fi, two bottles of mineral water, a brand new HD TV set, a little balcony with two...

This hotel was chosen for me (part of a one-night stop for a five-day business trip) but after the experience I would choose it and return for vacation on my own. If you must do business, then it's a wonderful lakeside location with some good meeting facilities and excellent food -- close enough to, yet far enough from, big Zurich... More

I stayed at the Schwanen for one night because I had wanted to see the village of Rapperswill. It was quiet at this time of year - I would imagine it's a much busier hotel and area in the warm summer months. I had a single room on the back side of the hotel which was quite roomy with a... More
