Spent a night at the small hotel during a week's bicycle ride across Switzerland. It's a solid 3 hotel that provided a modern, good-sized room. Lovely, welcoming staff. My meals were included in my package. Terrific. The restaurant seems to be one of the top in town and there is a catering facility. Should you need to visit Aarau, you won't be disappointed. It's a solid 10 minute walk to the well-maintained, centuries-old old town. More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

Gasthof Zum Schutzen is very small but a nice alternative if staying in Aarau. Rooms are small and limited in number but it's a nice family run, home-like atmosphere. The establishment's main focus seems to be around their restaurant and catering service. Dinner meals were excellent. Breakfast is standard continental fare and I felt quite adequate. I like their small inside bar area however the outside patio is really nice when the weather is good. Rear facing rooms suffer a bit of railway noise; otherwise it's a quite street intersection across from a school and sports field. Very short walk to the historic part of Aarau and plenty of other restaurants close by, as well as shopping. Ability to communicate in English was a bit limited but in no way a detractor. I have to travel to Aarau on business several times per year. This hotel is my prefered amongst the local selections. Only 10 guest rooms are available so plan ahead and book early. More
