“Perfect Chill Out”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

It is a short walk from the train station when suddenly the mirror effect of the glass planes strike you upon arrival.

Casting your eves from the reception over the lounge and dining area toward the bar at the back a person notices that the open plan approach is style-fully laid out. the decoration is not over powering, but enough to attract your attention. Chill out music plays in the background.

Walking int the room it has the feeling of spaciousness. A counter with a large mirror divides the room into two with the bathroom on the one side and the bed on the other. The white theme is contrasted with a nice mural and a stunning view into the forest.

When you open the latch on the side of the window fresh air engulfs the room.

The best is to sleep with it open and to listen to the chirping sounds of the forest birds. Just that is enough to make a person to go back again and experience it.

WOW!!! I wish I could include the aroma and the sounds in this report. You will just have to visit it to experience it.

The restaurant is popular with some fine dishes and good wine to compliment it. They have theme evenings which I sadly missed.

Room Tip: It must look towards the back into the forest otherwise you may miss those great moments.

I love the contemporary and playful style of this hotel! There are plenty of fun little details in the architecture. The room has an open plan, with the bathroom area exposed to the sleeping area. The color palette is white and a hue of green I have not seen since the 70's... but very fun. The room had enough square footage for a morning yoga practice in front of a large window. The bed is very firm as some reviewers noted, but it did not bother my sleep. What did bother my sleep majorly was a lot of light flooding into the room in early morning hours due to inadequate curtains/blinds. Should have used a face mask but it was kinda too late when you are wide awake.

I did not sample the breakfast but the breakfast room seemed very cozy. The staff was friendly. There is no gym, but you are welcome to go to the neighboring Parkhotel building, about 4 minutes walk, to use their fitness room. The room was very small with 3 cardio machines, but did the trick for me. I only wonder how you are supposed to get there in the winter months in your exercise gear.

Conveniently located hotel set in a lovely quiet location. Just a short walk from train station and offices.
Room was of superior standard with all the amenities one could expect. Hotel lounge was very nice indeed.
I loved my stay here and have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Average 4 star offerings, friendly helpful staff.

My problem was with the bed, like sleeping on a blanket on the floor. I know everyone's tastes are different, but I need a bit of give, since I am a front sleeper. As a result I paid about 300 francs for 3 hours sleep.

City garden is a hotel with impressive and very modern design, out side and inside. Overall the quality of the cervices was very good. There is a nice bar and restaurant on te first floor. Diner there was nice, albeit a bit expensive. The bed was very good, and the quality of the material exceptional.

I stay here regularly on business, and it's become one of my favourite hotels in Zug.
The rooms are a good size, which for the longer stays makes a nice difference. The bed is comfortable, and the shower works is very refreshing.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and I've always found them willing to help with any enquiries.
The thing I am not so keen on is the restaurant area, I find the black a bit too much. But that's a minor comment.

Overall, a hotel I'd recommend recommend.

This hotel is located next to a wooded hill which gives beautiful views, especially from the restaurant and terras. Excellent food and very friendly staff. Rooms are interesting, very stylish with an open bathroom and are very well equipped. During our stay, however, the room was very hot and impossible to cool down, the beds only had a duvet and no sheets and the pillows were much too soft. Still a nice place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The City Garden Hotel stands out because of its attractive design and the modern materials which are in total harmony with the green surroundings on the edge of the forest. A combination of contrasts that works impressively, both inside and out. The three-dimensional facade covered in chromium steel panels and the rhythmising corridors lend the City Garden Hotel a unique character. Inside, we have concentrated on warm materials such as wood but also on rough elements such as concrete. Colours are used subtly but deliberately. The City Garden Hotel, together with the City Apartments, is an ambitious showcase project and gem that will not just enhance the hotel landscape of Central Switzerland in terms of quantity but also in terms of quality. ... more   less
