We stayed here for 2 nights and felt absolutely delighted with our choice. Its is short 10 min walk from the main station along the river but there are buses plying to closeby stops as well. We took BUS#2 which is pretty frequent. The rooms are decently sized doubles with bunk beds for additional guests. Shared bathrooms are well maintained but could have done with some more units on every floor especially since they are designated male & female separately.
They have unlimited tea/coffee in the common room and also a microwave one can use to warm food. We used it to warm our meals from COOP which is also pretty closeby at Schwanenplatz. We did not take the Sfr 10 pp breakfast as we felt it was too much for the spread they had. Also for a family of 2 adults and a child of 10 yrs they had initially offered Sfr 20 for breakfast, but after checking in, they said since your child looks tall, we can offer breakfast for Sfr 30 !! We felt a bit let down at this and chose to drop breakfast altogether. Also we had requested for a room with balcony in our bookings made 4 months prior, and even after an email confirmation on the same, we could not get one.
Plus points : Free luggage storage / no curfew / microwave / friendly staff
Low points : Thin curtains.. so privacy could be an issue on lower floors unless you drop the shutters everytime you wish to change.
Most sights are a short walk from this hotel. The views across the river are great and on a clear day you can see Mt. Pilatus in the distance.
