In the historic town of Rapperswil, the traditional Sorell Hotel Speer is in a prime location. The "Speer" is a great place where people can meet up and a starting point for trips out into the Greater Zurich area or the nearby Old Town. The Sorell Hotel Speer is in the centre of Rapperswil, just opposite the railway station and the lake promenade. Rapperswil is well-connected by road and easily accessible by car or train. It is only 35 minutes away from the city of Zurich or its airport. The hotel's mountain bikes are the ideal way to discover Rapperswil and the surrounding area under your own steam.

We've stayed at this hotel four times already. We come from the US, because our former exchange student Anna lives nearby. It has always been a pleasant experience, however, this one was not. The manager on the day we left, her name I think started with a G, but I'm not remembe

Dear guest First of all, thank you very much for your recent visit. We were so pleased to have welcomed you again here in Rapperswil. I am very sorry to read that this time one of our staff members has disapointed you with her service. I heard about this case after your departure. I am absolutely sure that it was not her intention to stress you and your husband in any way. She was thinking of the fact that, at the back side of our hotel, there is a «dead end» signalisation, which was still up, as it was all summer long. For you this would have meant that you would have to back out with the car through a narrow and curvy street in order to get back to the main street. This is a bit difficult for some, and has already led to accidents in the past. Also, from experience we know, that the police frequents behind the hotel a lot and likes to give out tickets. For these reasons she suggested your husband to park infront of the hotel instead of the back. I would like to apologize to you, also on behalf of my employee, that this well intended information was presented to you in a way that caused you stress and frustration. We do hope to get the opportunity to show you our regret on your next visit. Sincerely Marianne Bucher General Manager

My personal opinion is that this is a hotel geared up for tourists not business.

The desk in the room is tiny, but WiFi is free. Everything is super clean and the staff are lovely.

But... the bed is like sleeping on a slab of slate and with the church bells being a regular in t

Very good and quiet hotel at Rapperswill - Jona. Near by old town and good bar. Breakfast room was not big and not so many options of food, but service was great and food was good. Big rooms and nice shower.
