Although outside the old city walls, Hotel Murten is a good value just a few meters away from the historic walled town. Looking for a good-value overnight stay in Murten, I found what I was looking for in Hotel Murten. Although the rooms were simple, they were very clean and the free wifi was a plus. The staff were friendly... More

Twice the price of a Kyriad in France and half the comfort in the bathroom. Also the only cover on the bed is the heavyish duvet and no other possibility. Result was that at three in the morning we had to strip the duvet cover in order to use it as a double sheet. Two bottles of water are offered... More

This hotel is a very short walk into the picturesque old lakeside town which is full of restaurants, bars, and gift shops. The room was comfortable and a good size but the bathroom was tiny and seemed to have no extractor fan which made it unbearably hot. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Free Wifi too. We... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night while touring this region of Switzerland. The hotel is basically across the road from the entrance to the old town. First impressions were excellent as the reception staff were extremely helpful. Our room was large, clean and had everything you required. The hotel provided free access to WiFi. Breakfast was very good with... More

This hotel is very welcoming and modernised. There is an excellent bistro style restaurant and long bar area which becomes lively as the evening goes on. The service in the hotel from the reception to the food and beverages is very efficient and friendly. It's really a good feeling place. The rooms are simple but very clean. Thoroughly recommend it.

I was surprised how basic the double room was. Plain cheap beds, tiny tiny bathroom which you step up to. Nothing in bathroom but a dispenser for soap. Tiny window so room was dark. No rugs, al ost jail like! Would not recommend. Disappointed.

We stayed here at the end of June 2012 in a family room. It is right in the centre of Murten close to all shopes, restaurants and bars. The room was clean and newly rennovated and my only complaint would be that the fixtures all seemed a bit cheap and flimsy but for one night it was very good. The... More

Murten is one of the few Swiss towns not to demolish its medieval tower which not still "protects the old town". New buildings have been built outside, but the old centre is still absolutely beautiful beside the lake. With going to see and the Hotel Murten is beside main part of town with a gorgeous cocktail bar and restaurant.. you... More

Rooms are very clean and tidy, but very bland and souless when compared to how modern the rest of the hotel is. Lovely breakfast buffet with everything you want and the bar/terrace and restaurant are really lovely. Easy walking distance to the main station, I really like Murten its a lovely place for a weekend.
