Operating a modern hotel in a 500 year (or so) old building is probably not an easy task, probably a lot of constraints on heritage protection and all that stuff and that may force owners to make some compromise, but that is something you know upfront when you make the booking. I think that under those circumstances they managed a good job with a minimalistic approach that I would rather link to Scandinavia then Switserland. I enjoyed the place, far more interesting than the classical business hotels you'd find all over the world. Rather expensive but I guess this has more to do with the country / city than the hotel itself.
