“a bit austere”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

I was booked here for 2 nights in a single room and paid CHF 118 per night incl breakfast (€ 96).
The hotel is near the train station and faces a square with ample parking. The parking opposite to the hotel is paid so be careful when you park at night. There are some parking sapces next to the hotel which are free and are there for hotel guests.

The room was basic, a bit austere but clean, At night it is quiet around the hotel.
There is no internet facilities whatsoever only a phone.

The restaurant has a limited menu and I found it similar to good home cooked food.
2 beers and a steak cost me CHF 46 (€ 38) here, which is pretty steep in my opinion for the food served.

If you just want to sleep and have a shower while on business I guess it is ok.
Not a really nice place for a romantic getaway or a large family vacation.

N.B. : the power sockets are different here so be prepared for that if you bring any electrical devices into the country that need charging.

Stayed one night. Usually stay in Feldkirch, Austria but everything was booked. Stayed at the Buchserhof and the room was your standard no frills euro single room. It was clean though and near the main drag.

Hotel is good for business, probably not perfect for vacation or family trips. It is very near the railway statsion but far enough from the noise, maybe about 300m. Breakfast is basic, but quality is fine. Restaurant is above average, with swiss price level. Make sure You get a freshly remoddeled room, complete renovation is under way. The new rooms are really nice. Lot´s of TV channels in the room, good wifi-reception (15 CHF per 24 hours)

I had to visit Switzerland for a few days for business.

I stayed two nights at the hotel "Buchserhof". I had been there 2 years before.

The hotel is a typical family run swiss hotel and hosts a lot of business guests. The rooms are small but very clean and a lot of them have been recently refurbished.

The breakfast is served as buffet and the choice is ok: 2 choices of juice, water, cereals, yogurt, assorted cheese, cold meat, jam, several kinds of bread, tea and coffe.

The service is very friendly.

Wireless internet-access is available on the room through swisscom. You can buy prepaid cards at the reception but it is cheaper to do it directly through the website (just connect to network and open a brwowser) by using your credit card - the price is about 5 CHF for 30 minutes - other packages are also available.

Sorry, no minibar.

The hotel is located downtown of Buchs. Several bars, shops and the train-station are just around the corner.

If you just need a clean and friendly place for a stopover, the hotel is the right choice.

"Gruezi",

Christian

Stayed here for a week on business.
Located right around the corner from the Buchs SG train station, about a 2 minute walk. Train service is extremely efficient, very smooth ride, about a 1.5hr scenic trip to Zurich HB (main station, quick connection to/from airport). From the main station there are a few direct trains to Buchs SG, others switch at Sargans. [--]
Hotel is family-run by Petra (reception) and Andreas Müller (chef). Most other staff speak limited English but they always find someone who speaks fluent English when needed. Everyone at the hotel expressed a very warm and inviting attitude.
Rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. Half the rooms are recently renovated with LCD flat screen TV sets and available (extra charge CHF 8,00 per day) DSL Internet access. Non-renovated rooms have a much older feel and do not offer DSL access, but offer WiFi by Swisscom charged by a few hours at a time or number of log-ons.
Complimentary breakfast selection small but well done. Available from 7:00 to 10:00. Dinner selection moderate, slightly above-average price but excellent quality. The hotel also bills itself as a public restaurant.
Right next door is a modern bar that was very busy every night I was there. There are also some excellent restaurants on the Bahnhofstrasse (street next to hotel) along with a McDonalds, some bars, stores etc.
There is also a large conference room near the main entrance, could seat about 60 people.
Also look at Hotel City on Grunaustrasse, right around the corner from the Burchnerhof. Also be sure to try a soft drink called Rivella Red, only found in Switzerland.
