We stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a package tour in August 2012. The room (#113) we had was on the first floor, on the corner of the building with a view down the street to the lake but framed by buildings either side of the street. Being on the corner it had windows on either side and was light, spacious and comfortable. There was a generous balcony on both sides of the room. On a fairly busy street but set back sufficiently from the road that, combined with the double glazed windows, ensured a quiet room.
The room included a double couch and arm chair as well as a large dressing table/writing bench. Like most rooms we have experienced on this trip through Switzerland, the king bed is actually 2 single bed mattresses side by side. Bedding did not include a large, hot feather doona which was to my liking. For once, the air conditioning worked well!
The bathroom was generous but only included a shower in bath with a flimsy shower curtain, something I have come to detest when traveling because of their propensity to stick to your legs, not provide a water tight seal with soggy floors not uncommon and you have to wonder how often they are properly cleaned.
The outdoor pool was both inviting and refreshing.
Apart from the shower curtain, the only other small negative was the bufet breakfast which didn't have a huge choice but no negative points for this.
