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

I only had one night at this hotel but it was pretty good. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was bright, but I faced directly on to an internal courtyard, so could open the curtains if anyone was there. The room was hot and the only way of cooling it down was using the room fan,...

This is a strange little hotel that reminded me of the 1980's. It's in a lovely location looking over lake Zurich on a street of little cafes. The room was very basic but quite spacious. Twin beds, which were very hard. With one pillow. So not a good nights sleep. Very few little extras in the room. So only 1... More

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
