The breakfasts was served in a Cousy square and the food was with good quality. All in all a very good stay. I will...

The hotel is fascinating to look at. The historic looking rooms, the qwerky lights and the holographic room doors make a hotel stay much more interesting. To top it off, the breakfast is amazing and certainly one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had. Will definitely continue to come back here in the future.

Stayed with family, great room, great service, easy check-in/out. Recommended! The restaurant Gotthard's was a bit too loud for our young children though, also took quite some time to get the food. So if you have hungry kids you should probably go somehwere else. The hotel breakfast was great though, really good food choices and good service!

This hotel has an original design. We enjoyed our stay in the rooms which were not very large. The breakfast that the hotel served was excellent, they got a big variety of food. If you come by car they got parking garage for the guests as well.

This hotel is very original and beautifully designed. Very clean, newly renovated, stylish. Comfortable beds. Very good window covers - it becomes really dark, not common at most hotels. The restaurant is top class so the breakfast was delicious. It is served in the very nice indoor piazza adjoining the hotel. Nice with late checkout. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended!

+ Lovely and helpful staff members at the reception at all times, amazing breakfast, bicycles free to rent - view from the room could have been a bit better, no turn off for air conditioning during the night, bathroom could have been a bit more clean (mirror, walls - it's all dark, so unfortunately you can see every spot 😉)
