Pros: the staff. We had particularly great interaction with Mark at the front desk, and everyone there was very friendly, multilingual and helpful (and I must say in contrast to most of the people in Murten, wow). When we checked in they gave us a choice of two rooms. One had a lakeside view but was not as good because it had one big bed and one small bed (we were two friends traveling). The other had two separate beds but no view to speak of (just the outside street). The first room with the lakeside view was...interesting. We called the little bed sleeping in the hole. Clearly it wasn't that bad as you can see in the photos but yeah, it's not ideal to sleep in that tiny space and you also can't watch the TV from there which is on the wall. The bathroom was...retro, to put it kindly. The towels looked like they were dishtowels! The view was awesome, but you had to be right up in the window to see anything.
The second one, the room we took, was Ikea-like in furnishing and was basically a place to sleep at night. It was fine, but not especially comfortable. The beds were not comfortable and kinda cheap. The walls were also kinda thin. The bathroom had a really loud echo for some reason and they only gave us one cup at the sink! The TV, though was totally unacceptable. It was in theory a color TV but that meant that there would be flashes of color (often the whole screen being blue) alternating with black & white. Interesting. Yeah, yeah, on vacation you're not supposed to be in the hotel watching TV but at the end of a long day it's nice to kick up your feet and relax with a watchable TV.
The breakfast was kind of mediocre, certainly compared to other hotels in Switzerland. The rest of the hotel space was kinda weird and funky but not necessarily in a bad way. Overall, it was fine for a couple of nights but it's not somewhere I would be running to again.
