I stayed in this hotel for a week starting March 15th, and I was enjoying it. Traveling alone, even though the room seems to be small(double bed and small sofa), it is enough for one person.
The hotel is close to the Hauptstrasse, maybe a 5-8 minutes walk, so very convenient.
The layout is well thought, however the TV has no English news channel(s), the WiFi once that you signed the membership at reception, is free, however if you have a 2nd device you cannot sign in, or in other words you can have 1 device using WiFi at any point in time but not more than 1.
A major issue I found is the countersink power outlets!!! I was lucky enough that 1 piece of my travel kit, could make the connection with my power adapters; I do not understand why they do not use flat power outlets in hotels?!
Also instead of wired Internet outlets would be better to have the the USB outlets...were none present.
Room was quiet and the bed was comfy.
Reception personnel was helpful and courteous. The bar had good tap beer, that's a bonus already.
The breakfast is very good and offers plenty of choices along with a good cup of coffee.
The overall impression was 9 out of 10, considering the items mentioned above, however a great time in a good new hotel.
Definitely I will choose to stay here again when traveling back in town and also I will recommend it to friends.
