My husband & I just came back from a week-trip to Zurich and we stayed in beautiful Rapperswil. Hotel Hirschen is right in the middle of the old town with perfect views of the lake and the mountains.. A few steps away from the castle and rosegarden, surrounded by very nice restaurants and with the train station just across the road. Hotel Hirschen's honeymoon suite was perfect! It's not gigantic but perfect with wooden beams apparently dating back to 1515 running across the ceiling... Just being in that room was like being part of the history... I enjoyed being able to walk around the area, grabbing pastries and chocolates left right and centre. Hotel Hirschen's managers and staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. They made our short stay in Rapperswil a very memorable and unforgettable experience indeed. Not hearing the clock (tower) ringing anymore gives me a somewhat sad feeling as I have gotten used to it. But, it's ok, as I was able to record it on my mobile on our very last day and just before we left this beautiful town for the airport. The room was very clean and very homely. Highly recommended indeed! And, would definitely stay again at Hotel Hirschen in future should we have another opportunity to visit :-)
