The hotel itself is just OK, but the staff brings it up a notch in the ratings. The location is great as well. It is a little outside the city center so it is quiet and it is right across from the lake. There is a beautiful walking/running trail. It is a little hard to find but not too difficult. Breakfast is not bad and the restaurant serves good food. Dinner is expensive but that is always the case in Switzerland. There is free wifi in the restaurant and lobby but also available in the rooms for a fee. There are a few parking spots in the back of the hotel but these are usually occupied. However there is additional parking for CHF 4.00 per 24 hours. Note, if you park in this lot I recommend you pay the CHF 4. A colleague got a CHF 40.00 parking ticket because he didn't pay. Overall, not bad. I will probably stay there again.
