This was our third visit in twenty years or so. Very little has changed except for room amenities and the key/card. If you remember the time when mastering the door key required admission into MENSA, fret no more. A single electronic swipe will do the trick. Yes, there is no air conditioning as is the case in many 4 star... More

A business trip in early August - hot in the Zurich area - hotter than usual. This hotel has no air conditioning in any public areas or in the rooms. Dinner, which was fine as far as food quality was concerned, was spoilt by the stifling heat. Furthermore, in spite of being the only group eating that night, service was... More

This hotel is the bereft blend of traditional charm and modern comforts. The hotel is located in a perfect spot in from of the lake. It is located next to many restaurants and the train station. The rooms are comfortable with adjustable beds, flat screen TVs, and a great big bathroom with a powerful shower and heated towel racks. I... More

Hote Schwanen is the best hotel in Rapperswil at Lake Zurich. Situated in the city center with a splendid view on Lake Zurich. Very good kitchen, excellent wine collection, with many local wines. Try the Egli, local fish. The rooms with lake view have a nice balcony.

I recently spent two nights at the Hotel Schwanen. I had a large room with excellent views off the harbour, lake, the hills on the other side of the lake, the bridge and the ducks on the lake. The bathroom was large and spacious and there was a comfortable workspace with free WiFi. There was also plenty of storage space... More

On a business trip a hotel like this is ideal. Lovely views, quiet and convenient ... although unfortunately one can't do much about the weather! Initially I battled a bit with the key arrangement but it is actually very easy once you get it (on arrival make sure you listen and watch the receptionists demo). The view over the harbour... More

We stayed at the Hotel Schwanen over a weekend. The location - along the lake and next to bars and restaurants - was great. Service was very friendly and accommodating, and the staff speaks English. Besides service and location, other positives include free internet, coffee maker and fresh fruit in the room, clean, modern bathroom with excellent (if not overpowering!)... More

Spacious bedroom with nice bathrooms. Very strange key mechanism for the bedrooms which was just plain inconvenient and frustrating. Set in a pretty part of this pretty town overlooking the lake. As always in Switzerland the room is hot and the ability of the customer to control the heating is limited to opening the window. Service functional. Decor and ambience... More
