I spent two weeks in Switzerland, staying in a different place every night, and of all the hotels, this was the lowest value. We did not make any reservations and we just happened upon the hotel, so we did not know what to expect. We were told the price of a double room was 210 CHF, but when we turned to leave the receptionist lowered the price to 160. That was the most we paid for a hotel the entire trip, but it was nighttime and we didn't have any better ideas, so we stayed.
The room was ok and clean, but there was this weird window looking into the bathroom from the room, so if you don't want the person you're sharing a room with to see you doing whatever you do in the bathroom, it's necessary to warn them that you're going in there. The other thing was that the sheet on the bed wasn't big enough. We oriented it so that it covered both of us, but then our feet were sticking out. If we oriented it the
other way, it didn't cover both of us. It was very difficult to sleep like this. In the middle of the night we decided it was worth it to go get our sleeping bags out of the car, but then we found a comforter tucked in a low shelf, so one of us got the sheet and one of us the comforter.
The breakfast buffet was one of the best we had throughout the trip, in a nice sunny room.
It wasn't bad once we got the covers situation figured out, but compared to the other places we stayed, this seemed a bad value.
