Reviewed May 17, 2013

*from center is 15 minutes away by the tram
*the tram station is in front of the hotel
*nice hotel, but the "budget" rooms are in the 10th, 11th, and 12th floor and it looks like the cabins of a ship (the smell)
*we needed an adaptor for 10 min. to dry my hair and the staff said "you can't rent an adaptor, only you can buy for 20 chf!!!!!!!!!!!"

Should have a telephone to contact reception or housekeeping, soap provide is too small and thin.

Need a sign to indicate that we can also reach the IBIS BUDGET reception through the elevator, otherwise when walking through the entrance of the hotel, we though the stairs is the only way, and this is suffering especially with two suitcases.

Tiny rooms, with separate shower, sink and toilet areas in the room. Let me clarify: There is no separate bathroom in the room. The toilet is behind a fake wood door that doesn't go all the way to the floor. So it's like going to the toilet behind a curtain in your bedroom. The shower and sink are totally in the bedroom. A fine setup if you're travelling alone. If not, everyone else in the room becomes fully aware of your bathroom routine.

First thing first: compared to Swiss prices, it is considered cheap. Fast elevatros, comfy bed and even a flat TV. A real ETAP with cleanlyness. However, I would really have appreciated a hair dryer!!!

Very nice staff, helpful, clean, fresh!
minor negative point access from parking to elevator, 3 doors to go through which is not so easy with a stroller and luggage.
good restaurant next door
maybe parking should be less expensive

Interesting location in the same complex as the Accor and Ibis hotel.
The rooms are very clean, sober and simple. All you need and no frills; just as I like it.
Hotels in Switzerland are expensive, so if you are travelling with two, it is a good alternative to the "cheapies" like the yought hostel which on a per head price is about the same for dormetory beds as when sharing a double room in Ibis Budget.
The only downside I could think of is the location. Public transport in Swiss is expensive and taking the tram to the centre puts you 4.60 Swiss Francs back one-way. You can actually walk to the centre in about 30 minutes, but that is not clearly indicated.
