We stayed at Swissotel last week and were impressed by the standard of comfort and value. We stayed in room 309 which is enormous, almost big enough to be a loft apartment, with open plan bath and separate WC and shower. The staff were all charming and very helpful. It's a modern hotel, rather heavy on sixties influence. But even if that weren't your thing the rooms are very well appointed and have everything that you could possibly need including a Nespresso machine, and free Wi-fi. There's a well stocked breakfast buffet in a "kitchen" area of the dining room. The hotel is very conveniently situated too, right by the Schloss.
On our first night we ate in the hotel dining room, on the special deal for pre and post opera. The food was delicious but our only comment was that the restaurant requires an express menu of some sort - perhaps even if little less refined. The food is very beautifully presented. The set menu that evening consisted of a sweetcorn and scallop soup followed by some marinated lean pork with vegetables, and choice of chocolate creme brulee or cheese following the performance. However, we weren't able to finish our main course since despite booking a table for 5.30, we were pushed to get to the opera house in time to collect our tickets. The day we left we had a delicious light lunch of smoked salmon on blinis but the perfect presentation again made timing so tight that we had to rush to finish it, the wait was too long. But other than that detail our stay was very enjoyable and we'd highly recommended the hotel. I couldn't comment on the spa as hadn't booked in time to get an appointment.
