My wife and I stayed here with another couple for a biking trip. The staff was kind enough to let us store the bikes in a back room, which was above and beyond what we expected. The rooms are average sized, the bonus was the excellent air conditioning which felt great after the long bike ride. Shower was fine, the... More

Perhaps the best hotel in Switzerland when comparing the price and the standard. I only wonder -again- why it is not possible to have a 3rd floor room according to my wishes although I make the reservation over one month in advance. However, all rooms have been of a high value.

I spent 5 days there, very nice, clean, friendly staff. It's a walking distance from all attractions of the small town; and right in front of train,bus station as well as the pier.. good breakfast with some good varieties and staff helpful regarding recommendations for what's suitable for me to eat (as I don't eat pork)

This is a simple hotel but very well run and with an amazing location just by the train station. It is quiet, comfortable and with very friendly staff. The breakfast was also very nice offering most things you would be looking for in a buffet breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel for a short or long stay in Rapperswil

This family owned and managed place really deserves the Best Western "Plus". Everything you wish in the rooms is there, the decoration nice and personal, and the staff friendly and competent. The location is next to the train as well as the boat station - very convenient if you want to make a trip for example to Zurich. Though Rapperswil... More

I have stayed in this hotel many times in the past 8 years. Its location is so convenient, train station and bus stops are just cross the street. Lots of restaurants, including a McDo and bars within 5 minutes walk. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Room is bit small by US standard, but clean.
