“would be excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

It is quite new hotel with very nice clean rooms, excellent service. People are so nice, helpful, English speaking. B'fast is continental with very nice choice of fresh rolls, bread, cold cuts and famous swiss chees In any other location I would say: yes, you have to stay here!
Unfortunately hotel is located between main road and railway station so noise is very often big. There is central aircondition so during warm nights sleeping without opened windows is not so nice but with opened windows sleepeing is only possible when you are hardly sleeping even on the main street in London during rush hours.

A very clean, comfortable and eco-friendly hotel in Sins.
Sins train station is a stone's throw away.
Very warm, friendly & exceptionally helpful staff.

Spacious rooms incl a spacious wash room and a large shower area too.
The hotel takes pride in being an eco-friendly hotel.

Breakfast is below par than regular stuff, though there is scope for improvement.

Wi-Fi service is available.
Sins as a place, is absolutely quiet; so unless, you have some particular reason to be here; you would'nt be in Hotel Arcade. I and my wife were on road trip & Sins was en route and we stayed here two nights. We took a trip to Jungfrau (little exhausting, as Interlaken is the best place to start the trip) well, we are grateful the staff in giving us the precise way to travel.

A printout of the Train incl numbers, platform, along with arr/dep times.
It made our train travel a pleasure and with only a little more than couple of minutes of Swiss time between inter changing of trains... was no sweat... at all.

good wine bar, pet friendly, plenty parking space with a nice restaurant across the steet.

Room Tip: Not much to choose from. You may prefer the road facing or train lines facing.

A nice functional hotel in the quiet village of Sins, right behind the train station. Rooms are small, but clean and have everything you need. Wine Bar is excellent, and not overly expensive for Switzerland, and is a bit of a shock, given how quiet the rest of the town is, although having some English translations would be useful, especially as it's an international hotel - my German is pretty good, but I didn't have a clue what half of the stuff on the menu was!!

We stayed at this hotel on a Friday night as we were at a wedding reception nearby and it had the facilities it we needed. It really depends on what you want when you stay at a hotel in Switzerland, this is very much a business hotel as it is advertised and rather impersonal.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and cannot be faulted in any way and the reception staff were really good. We did not have breakfast at the hotel so I cannot comment on this.

The main reason for the average rating though was the cleaning staff. They woke us up early wanting to clean the room despite our check out time being 11am. After putting the do not disturb sign on to ensure no other disturbances, a member of staff tried to enter again to enter the room! I guess they are used to early business check outs!

Room Tip: The railway line is fairly close to the hotel, though it did not disturb us. The room sizes are quo...

This hotel is a bit out of the way, but serviced our needs. The hotel was clean, the staff helpful, the food at breakfast acceptable, the beds satisfactory. The hotel promotes itself as being very 'green' (look at the web site). I would say that the one thing it lacks is a bit of personality...needs a bit of warmth somehow.
