“Nice location near the train station, great location to launch day trips.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2009

I have stayed at the Elite twice as a resting point for some business in the Orvin and Corgemont area. I love the central location, the Rotun Restaurant across the street and the refreshing view of the mountains beyond.

Since it is located in the city limits, it can be a bit loud in the evenings and late evenings, but that should be part of the charm! Earplugs are available and work.

Open your balcony door and let the mountain air rush in!! Enjoy the french atomosphere of this great swiss town.

Hotel staff has always been very nice and accomodating.

About an hour and twenty minutes out of Zurich, by ICN.

Stayed here for 1 night on business as I had to have close proximity to station. I read all the reviews and must admit, although I had a room facing the street I did not have any problems with noise. In fact, I had no complaints. Yes, the hotel does process your card when you book, but I found it refreshing to be presented with the print-out upon arrival. As I arrived after 20h00 the fact that checking in was hassle free and pre-processing saved me time, was actually a bonus. You have to pay at some point, right? The room was well appointed, very clean with service and good breakfast. My single room had a single bed with light duvet and a door with a little balcony, a large bathroom and small minibar and tiny TV - I worked so it did not bother me. Great stay all in all. Highly recommended if you are in need of a "functional" stay - its a city hotel, do not expect cows and Swiss scenary. Its in the centre of town.

I loved the room. It was very clean and luxury, staff was very friendly and location is brilliant. But..I could´t sleep without earplugs.
Terrible noise from street night after night..
