This is a cozy hotel a short walk away from the train station in Rapperswil. I've been coming to Zurich for work for over two years and usually stay in the city. However this time I decided to try something different and I'm so glad I did! The rooms are small but functional, and the furnishing were very comfortable. I...

This was my 5th stat at the Jakob. It a short walk from the train station and is located on the square that hosts the farmer's market. It is a short walk from the good dining options, too. Staff is friendly. Good traditional European breakfast.

My husband and I had two comfortable stays here in May and June 2016. The people are wonderful and went out of their way to accommodate triathlon training needs; the food is amazing—dinner in the restaurant is a must; and the location can't be beat.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. My boss and I both booked a single room, mine was actually a double bed but only half of the bed was furnished with 1 pillow and blanket. My boss's room was a single and it was very small. The hotel is right next to the church and its bell...
