We had a short stay and we really enjoyed our stay. The service was wonderful from the moment we walked in. It continued as we moved around the building. Rooms and property were also very nice. Wish it cost a little less, but no complaints.

The location is brilliant - the Chapel Bridge and the Lion's Monument are less than 5 minutes from the hotel. The walk to the train station is 10 minutes if you have heavy luggage. I would...

The Personals were very friendly. The room was clean. They have coffee and Tea in the room for selfmade. Find it very practical. Badroom a bit old and need some uplifting. Breakfast was ok but not special. I had a business stay at the hotel and altogether it was good but have some room improvement.

My wife, I and our for kids (17, 14, 11, 8) stayed for one night. The location is ideal, within short walking distance to the main attractions. The rooms were nice, wifi was good and breakfast was adequate. Parking was close to hotel in garage. The only downside was the price, but a lot of Switzerland is way pricey.
