The exceptional ratings of Maximilian made me curious and so I spent a bit more than I originally wanted to get my superior room at this applauded place. As the guest relations manager event took my specific requirements for a room full of light I was surprised to be offered a super-small single room under the roof (something I had specifically declined upfront). With some extra effort I managed to get a decent room facing the front building – which was must about okay but not so exceptional as you would expect. One of the cool ideas is to offer goldfish as a living decoration – which arrived on day 2 of my stay and the first aquarium was empty (the clerk only discovered this when he was in my room…). I did not test other offerings but it’s certainly unique to offer in-room training equipment or morning runs (jogging).
Breakfast is above standard with a choice of fresh eggs, juices, fruit etc. There is even a Swiss-style Muesli which is better than at one of the Swiss hotels I stayed…
Sleeping quality is fabulous and also amenities in the bathroom are good. Reception is most helpful with tipps and questions, although their knowledge of the local restaurant landscape was surprisingly limited. They offer free tea and coffee throughout the day and an honesty self-service bar where you mark the drinks you take. All in all, an efficient modern concept that should cater to a cool, hip clientele. Hence, I was surprised to find quite many mainstream guests – of course everyone was very nice.
