We spent one night at this hotel with our 2 daughters. The location is great and very convenient to the local attractions. We were able to park the car and walk everywhere that we wanted to go. We had a huge suite with 3 bedrooms, dining room, kitchen and balcony with nice view so we were able to spread out.... More

The toilet wasnt throughly cleaned. There were remnants of previous visitor on the toilet seat and that wasn't very pleasant experience. Other parts of the room were okay~nicely cleaned. Moreover old man at the reception isn't very enthusiastic person. He seems to be a kind person, but more of a 'deal with it' person rather than helpful person. Finally there... More

Our family stayed one night here on our way through Switzerland. The gentlemen working the front desk were extremely helpful in assisting us with a day trip to Mt Pilatus and a nice dinner recommendation. The hotel room was small but very clean and the hotel breakfast was great.

This is definitely not a Hotel. Felt deceived by its name and (now obviously) selected good reviews and photos on its website. Claimed to be non-smoking yet we were greeted with a very strong cigarette smell the moment we entered our room. The smell lingered even as we opened the windows to air it. No room number on our room... More

This is the first "terrible" review I've every written... My friend and I booked this hotel through hostels.com. We did not realize that there was a difference between the "hostel" rooms and the "hotel" rooms. It seems the reviews on here are a mix of both, so be careful. The pictures on the website are only of the more expensive... More

This is a rather odd hotel. It shares a building with several businesses, including a catering college, so the main staircase – linking reception with the bedrooms – is a shared space. The reception area itself could hardly be more basic. Nonetheless, the hotel’s location is superb; opt for a room with a river view and you can sit on... More

The hotel is situated just in the city centre. There is a paid parking in front of the hotel by the street, but you probably have to be lucky to have a place. We have been lucky. :-) The staff was very kind and helpful. The hotel room was quite nice and clean, however it was modest related to the... More

Lively views of the river and swiss alps. Nice quite location. Flea market across the river every wednesday . great cosy place to spend time - just too expensive OK breakfast Decent rooms - ask for rooms with balcony on 3rd floor ( but not in rainy season - as there are plenty insects which come in uninvited

Amazing views, 15 min walk to town. Breakfast was absolutely amazing. Restaurant for evening meals next door. Great bed and room facilities. Common space for coffee and TV great to mix with other people. Service mixed, lady at reception was particular helpful.

It was a pleasure to stay at the hotel. The staff were friendly and assisted in getting tickets to visit some attractions. They also exchanged Euros for Swiss Francs at a good rate thus saving a trip to the bank or foreign exchange bureau. The breakfast included wonderful yogurt and croissants. The water flowing in the river provided soothing sounds... More
