Another great find on our trip to Switzerland. We booked a free-upgrade special directly on the hotel's website to get one of the rooms in the original hotel section with a balcony overlooking the lake for approximately $200 US.
As others have pointed out, the hotel has an older section that was completely refurbished in the late 90s. I thought it was done last year it was in such great shape. (see the pictures) There is another section added on that from the outside, is hideous. But those rooms are also supposed to be of comparable standard inside, and a bit cheaper, but spring for the upgrade if it's $50 or less. (or free with web special)
So many good things... where to start...
Awesome bathroom with double vanity, top quality fixtures/surfaces, towel heater, lots of floor space - design so modern I can't believe it's been there for 8 years. Balcony was fantastic although it was raining... Room is average size for Europe - not huge, but fine for two people. Turn-down service with complimentary bottled water and kit-kat bars was a nice surprise. Included buffet breakfast was very nice. The common areas of the hotel were very nice and although the photos made the modern connecting section/restaurant look awkward, inside, it's beautiful with a nice view.
Only complaint - A/C didn't seem to be working properly; call to the front deask at 2AM didn't get a friendly response. But it was cool enough to just crack a window. This was the only lapse in otherwise outstanding service.
Highly recommended, even at up to $300/night.
