Hotel built like a circle; my room was located on the back 1/2 (as far from the elevator as one could be). Room itself was modern style - cowhide chairs at a small table, small kitchenette, two twin beds pushed together, modern tv. The wall between the bathroom and the sleeping area seemed to be made of opaque glass. Room was on the far side so didn't have any noise issues; balcony overlooked the center of the hotel so you could see other patrons as they entered their rooms and flipped on their lights!
Pillows were as flat as a pancake so I called room service for additional ones. It was late at night (after 9pm) but they were busy at the front desk so they called me back about 20 minutes later. When I told them what I needed they advised me the head of the bed could be raised. I still ordered and received the extra pillows.
The buffet breakfast, which was included in our package, was one of the best we had during our 9 day stay in different hotels throughout Switzerland.
The walk up a very steep hill was AWFUL; those with heart conditions shouldn't even try it! And, I can't imagine lugging baggage up that hill. The hill is a real turn off so much so that I wouldn't return to this hotel no matter how good the breakfast selections!
