Swiss prices are known for being on the higher side of things, but for CHF140/night it was an excellent place to stay. I was suitable impressed with checking in and out - it took all of 2 minutes for both, and before the ink was dry on the registration form, I was already in the lift.
The single room was a tad narrow, but it was clean, comfortable and relatively quiet. At times, I could hear the occupants of the neighbouring room but more muffled noises than anything obvious. The room was furnished with a large single bed, widescreen TV, closets, full length mirrors, desk and safe. The bathroom was clean and hot water was ever present. The sink was perhaps a bit too small though.
Breakfast was simple but you could have more than enough of the fresh breads, cheese, hams, eggs, fruit (tinned), and cereals. Plenty of coffee to boot. There was a busy adjacent hotel restaurant, but I did not try this.
On the downside, was the speed of the WI-FI on the upper floors. It was quicker on the lower floors.
It was only a 20 minute walk to reach the old town and 15 minute walk to the main train station. Buses and trams are just metres from the entrance too.
A great place to stay - most notably for its fast, friendly and efficient service.
