Room (552) was very spacious and clean. The shower was the best we have ever had in any hotel anywhere. Our relatives who live in Switzerland were concerned as they had read poor reviews, but we cannot understand why as everything was exceptional. The location is great because it is very close to the railway station as well as a central hub for the tram system. Free Wi-Fi and public transport tickets were a plus. Also, preferred the rooms of this hotel as we were not bothered by any tram, train or street noises (we were visiting for Fasnacht). I did not mind the lack of view because we weren't there to look out our hotel room window--we were there to participate in the carnival and it wasn't as though the buildings were that close to each other so there was plenty of light and could see that the sun was out. In addition, the staff were very friendly and courteous. I really cannot say enough good things about this hotel.
