This report refers to the rooftop terrace (which is mainly a bar but also offers some food for lunch). As I heard many positive things about this rooftop terrace i wanted to try for a quick lunch. Unfortunately the experience was not that great. The way up is a bit difficult - after taking the elevator you still need to... More

I was staying overnite in the Hotel Eden au Lac and was meeting a Swiss friend for dinner. We decided to have dinner at the Hotel at the apparently well- regarded restaurant Eden. This proved to be a very unfortunate decision. Firstly, our waiter, who was friendly enough could not understand our order in either English or German. One issue... More

Furthermore they will serve you the right glass of champagne, to each course of the luxurious 4 course menu. Sometimes they also offer a fantastic seven courses menu with 7 right glass of white or red wine, with... More

I ended up in front of the Eden au Lac, while trying to find a pedestrian crossing to reach the lakeside over a murderous highway to go to a restaurant for lunch. Instead the old fashioned facade and the impeccably dressed staff lured me into the diningroom. I found myself alone with my compagnion in the large empty dining area... More

Old world charm, lovely location and outstanding staff - very helpful and very courteous. Went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and yet polite and discreet. Classic hotel and certainly have excellent service standards difficult to find in Europe in this day and age.
