This is the second year we have stayed in Alte Post on our way to Italy. Although the hotel is vintage, it is clean, the beds are fine, the bathroom small but convenient. Because we use this hotel only to stay one night, for us it is a good place to stay. The restaurant food is very good (especially the... More

While staying in Wassen, we had dinner in the restaurant in this hotel, 2 nights in a row; for two reasons:- good prices and delicous food. On the first evening, my husband chose spaghetti bolognaise with a house salad and I chose a traditional Swiss rosti which had bacon and an egg on top. This was very savoury and scrumptious....

It has been my experience that off-peak travel can sometimes result in off-peak service and amenities at smaller hotels. This was not the case during a visit to Wassen to enjoy the trains over the pass before the new tunnel opens later this year. We booked a two-bed room which was a very large room with a double bed and... More

Location, location and location. Clean rooms good staff and very good food. For train lovers remember to ask for "train room", fantastic view over all the curves on the way to Gottard Tunnel passing three times around the church in town.

This hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. The rooms are quite Spartan with no AC or fridge. Unfortunately, we had a family with a small baby in the next room which illustrated the poor insulation/sound proofing between the rooms. The baby was well behaved, as we heard, but regrettably woke and needed feeding at 6.45am (a bit before... More

We bumped in for a night with my family. We had a lovely little room, very clean, comfortable beds and linings. The food is a bit heavy, local swiss style. Very friendly personal and quite good value for money (compared to Swiss market).

Stayed here for one night as part of a European road trip and found it a good location for the mountain passes along with being in a nice, quiet location. Room was very basic but clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Free parking across the road. Breakfast was also very good. Had a meal in the restaurant and we both... More
