Hotel is ideally situated, literally everything on the doorstep & right on the river. The bedroom was large & clean but seriously needed updating - shower room & decor. Public rooms quirky with suits of armour & stuffed polar bear. The evening meal, included in our tour, was adequate but we had a much better meal (also part of the... More

We walked in from the train station, no pre-booking. We were allowed to view the room. It was like staying at your grandmothers - older decor, but clean. Our room was quite spacious. (Incidentally, getting to the town is not well marked from the station. When you exit the stub road from the stain, proceed down the road you see... More

If you appreciate historic and character buildings, this is your hotel: 5 centuries old and you can still see and feel it all around you. Location is superb being right in the old town with the river running past you (we were taking photographs of the fish in the river from our room). Unfortunately for the 2 nights we were... More

The hotel enjoys prime location directly at the Rhine river and a stone's throw from the old town which is an absolute must to see for anyone visiting Switzerland. This is not a place with many stars and a lot of trimmings; well it is some 500 years old, a good hotel with reasonable prices. However, what is spectacular is... More

This was a lovely old Swiss hotel. Yes it could do with am update here or there but this added to the character for us. We had a great room overlooking the river. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was pink and the towel rail did not work but it was one of the most... More

I must say I cannot believe that the last review for this hotel was back in October 2011! The hotel building is over 400 years old and has loads of character with exposed timber and creaky floorboards! Yes the halls are dark but there are light switches everywhere. We stayed for two nights and was booked by our cycle tour... More

It was booked by the organizers of Star Symposium . I got a river side room, which offers a very nice view of the Rhein river. It is bit small and congested hotel. But rooms are nice. A river side restaurant is just beneath. Breakfast is fine. Staff are not nice though bit weak in English. Room charges are bit... More

My husband and I stayed in this lovely little hotel for 2 nights in September. It`s an unusual hotel, very interesting inside, with an old castle decor-there is even a statue of a knight standing in the corridor! Room was nice and comfortable, with a view over the river. The hotel stands right on the river like a ship, and... More

Entire hotel was DARK as in not enough lighting, which included the halls and bedroom. It was difficult to try to read due to the poor lighting. One night we ate on the hotel outdoor dining room and were told by the hotel staff that their specialty was the fish dinner, so we ordered the fish at 40+ Swiss Francs... More

fantastic location, but an odd place. Dated furnishing in rooms, dated bathroom and no bath. But we will most remember this hotel for the stunningly rude reception we received on arrival which went way beyond indifference to downright rudeness. We were pre booked on a package tour or would have left there and then. On our second night the hotel... More
