We booked one night at the Hotel du Parc as part of a package offered by the Baden tourist office, with tickets and a picnic lunch at the Museum Langmatt -- our reason for going to Baden. It is a large, modern, business hotel. We later decided to arrive a day early and then decided to stay another day so we could drive to Zurich, visit the Buhrle Collection, and return before heading for Lucerne.
I’d love to say I loved this hotel, but it had some very strange features. The flat-screen TV was on a curved panel protruding from the wall. The bed lamps were wall lamps with many-colored lights that flashed from color to color.
They advertise air-conditioning, but the unit is called a “cooling ceiling.” According to the guest literature in the room, it cools more slowly, but is more energy efficient. I think it was about as effective as an ice cube being dangled in front of a vent. Although it wasn’t terribly hot outside, the temperature in the room was 80 degrees, and opening the windows didn’t help, even though we were facing north and into a park. The literature also said that fans were available, so we requested one and one of the reception staff dragged a fan on a stand to our room. It really helped, and it ran all the time we were in the room.
But the strangest feature was an absolutely clear heavy glass bathroom door -- I can’t conceive of anything more ridiculous. Not only does it eliminate all privacy, but if one person gets up during the night to use the bathroom, it guarantees that the other person is awakened by the bathroom light. Only an complete idiot could have thought this one up!
But the reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the food good (although very expensive -- they substituted roesti for roast potatoes with our Wienerschnitzel and charged us 5 Euros each). We paid for parking in their large underground garage, as there was no street parking available.
