During a weekend break a couple of weeks ago I stayed for three nights at the Mgallery Hotel Continental. We arrived with the airport train and walked the approximately 10 minutes to the hotel. Upon arrival we were quickly checked in by a nice girl and went to our room.
The room faced the street that the hotel is on, but despite that it was very quiet at night. The bed was comfortable, there was a flat screet tv, free (fast) wifi, there was a bath tub (and amenities from Chopard) and additionally we got a piece of Toblerone each night. Nice room, but what you would expect from a four star hotel.
Location-wise the hotel is decently situated. It is about 10 minutes' walk from the train station with shops, restaurants and also the airport train. It is pretty much the same distance to the old town with its restaurants, bars and action in general. The street the hotel is on is not that exciting, but as mentioned, close to livelier parts of town.
When it comes to food and drink we tried breakfast, room service and the bar (and also the free apple juice in the lobby). Due to arriving at the hotel quite late we opted for room service since the restaurant was closed. We ordered the Mgallery burger which costed something like €25 (including a late night surcharge after 11 pm). The burger was quite bland and definitely not worth its price even though it was edible. Luckily, the breakfast was far better. Considering the burger I wasn't that hopeful about the breakfast, but was pleasantly surprised over the quality and also the large amount of different items that was available. There were different kinds of eggs, bacon, sausages, potatoes, tasty bread, cold cuts, freshly squeezed juices, Nespresso coffee-maker, fruits and so on. Very nice. The bar was okay when we visited, but nothing special.
On checking out the hotel ordered us a taxi that arrived almost instantly despite being 5am, with a friendly driver that took us to the airport for about 45CHF.
All in all a nice experience. Friendly staff, great breakfast, nice rooms and decent location. Not so impressed by food from room service, but that is a problem in most hotels I've stayed in.
