We've stayed in much nicer places in the area, but with the dollar being so weak against the franc it just seemed insane to pay such prices. I had asked for a room on the lake side since I had read about the road noise for the rooms on that side. We were given a corner room which definitely has positives and minuses. Positive: gorgeous view and lots of light. Since it's so hot and there's no a/c it gave extra ventilation. However, it also had said road noise. Nothing that ambien didn't take care of but it was still annoying. And yes we had mosquitos as well, but that's not the hotel's fault. Room was on smallish side but extremely clean and stylish. (modern) bathroom was very nice. There was also a small balcony, but our neighbor was a chain smoker and the wind was in the wrong direction for us which made it unpleasant.
The best thing about the hotel is the restaurant. The food was fantastic. The server not so much. Very surly. Was not attentive at all. Wine glasses would stay empty. Then he got upset when you poured yourself. Well don't walk by 3 times and ignore us! We were only one of two tables at the time!! There were also several tables later on in the evening that smoked which was annoying.
I will say that it was by far the easiest hotel we've ever found on a trip. Just off the autobahn, and follow the signs.
