Forum Hotel Widnau
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Widnau
Reviewed July 6, 2010

I went on this trip to Switzerland to visit Leica industries (I was on vacation but the rest of the family was on a business trip) and Forum was the assigned Hotel for us to stay at.

The Hotel was clean and the rooms were big enough to fit two people confortably. They had breakfast included and they served breads, juices, yogurts, ham, cheeses, waffles, scrambled eggs, and some cereals.

The service was Ok, the only issue we had was with the girl from the restaurant kitchen, that was a little rude, but I was not mad about this as they were all kind of rude (as people from cold countries usually are).

The view from the room was really nice and the city is really calm as it is a country side city. The only problem was that the city closed at 7pm. No markets or stores, only a few restaurants would stay opened.

The price was high (you must consider that I am from Brazil and the time I travelled 1 euro was about 3 "reais"). Maybe if you are an European or US/Canadian traveller the exchange will not be such an issue.

The internet was quite expensive too and not so reliable as it did not work from time to time.

As for the country, Switzerland is incredible and really a nice place to visit. Widnau is a quiet place but with lots of things to see on its surroundings:

Appenzell
Rolls Royce museum in Austria
Castles
St Gallen
Mainau (Germany)
Karren Mountain (Austria)
Boat trip on Bodensee (Lake Constance)

I do not know if there other Hotels around Widnau but if for any reason you would like to stay on this city I recommend the stay at Forum Hotel.
