The hotel is very well located, just 50 meters from the Lake and very close to some good restaurants and pizzerias. The hotel is very modern and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. With the windows closed you will not ear any outside noise.
The room has a very odd bathroom where there is no toilet brush, there is no hand towel and the door needs some firm pull to close.
There are plenty of channels on its 32 inch flat TV but sadly all are local only a couple of news channels in English (nothing too different from the rest of the Hotels in Europe).
Like all Accor group this IBIS hotel offers everything as a extra price, there is a car park but unless you book it in advance there won't be much change of you getting a parking space. If you do you will need to fork 16 Swiss francs per day.
The breakfast is 15 francs per day but I must say they are worth the money you get a reasonable buffet breakfast will ham, cheese, all sorts of machine type coffees, orange and mix fruit juices, local bread, croissants, muesli, yogurt, fruit salad etc. For this part of Switzerland it was a very good value for money experience.
You have free wifi and an acceptable speed, good perk. Ther is also a small gym room and free sauna for those who like to relax.
Just outside the hotel we found a pizzeria called Universo that do some of the best pizzas we had in a long time and a good price too. Ask for the normal size ones and you will be surprized.
The Staff is very helpful.
Overall it was a very good stay we will stay there again when revisiting the town in the future.
