We stayed in Room 3 for one night - having arrived at 9pm and checked out by 11am the next morning. The place is near the lovely old part of town - with views of the castle on the hill above from the square. The room has lovely high ceilings but, a distinct minimalist feel -floorboards, and minimal furnishings - and a minibar with a few drinks. It had what we were seeking - a modern clean & large bathroom, clean sheets, and a comfortable bed, all located in a great area of the town - at 215 CHF with breakfast. This is a very comfortable place but do not expect a Hotel. There is no front desk - the restaurant is the main aspect of this business and the rooms are an add-on. When we arrived the guy making pizza's said it was very busy in the restaurant and he was not sure if they could help us check-in right now. The Manager was very friendly and did not keep us waiting. One point of note was that entry to the area where you access the stairwell to the rooms upstairs was particularly smelly - there is a smoking room attached to the restaurant and the stale smell of tabacco lingers in the entrance to the stairwell. This smell did not extend to the bedroom or upsatirs corridor. The breakfast comprised bread, cold cut meats, and jam. There was coffee/ tea and a juice-like drink - not fresh juice. The manager was a friendly and helpful man - our only surprise was that the maid had started cleaning the room - before check out. After breakfast we went for a short stroll - to see the town - returning to the room at 10.40am - to find that she wanted us not to use the room because she had cleaned the bathroom and changed the towels already. As we stepped out of the room into the corridor at 10.55am, there were guests standing in the corridor waiting to check straight in. We are rarely tardy with check-out, but this was somewhat of an imposition. We did want to use the toilet before departing on by train to Bern - and did so. The Rathaus should be more considerate given check-out was at 11am. The maid expected us not to touch anything and not be bothered that she had entered our room prior to our departure. We kindly informed her that we would be using the bathroom, and advised we would need the room for another 15mins.
