“Great location, friendly staff, great piano bar!”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

The hotel is right across the street from the train station, plenty of shopping there -- even on a Sunday! (everything else is closed on Sunday). Easy accessibility for all other parts of town. The room was compact but comfortable. Bathroom was clean with good water pressure in shower. The hotel bar/restaurant was comfortable for us to meet up and listen to the piano player singing -- he was good! Even with the close proximity to the street and train station, I did not note any loud street sounds but...I did not have to open my windows during my stay. I would stay there again either for business or with my family.

As most reviewers say, the location to the train station and shopping couldn't be better. The staff are helpful, in fact we were having an issue with the television and within minutes there was a knock on our door from a staff person who easily fixed the problem. Our room was small, and the hotel is on a busy corner so its impossible to get away from the traffic and tram noise. Always ask for an upper level room as this will help with any sound problem, and if you keep the windows closed you won't have an issue at all. Unfortunately, it was HOT and the only way to cool our room down was by keeping the windows open...bring earplugs! The bathroom was fine, clean but in need of updating...stains in the sink and cracked tiles. The bath amenities are cheap products, so ladies bring your own shampoo and conditioner. Overall, a better than average hotel. Will I stay there again? No, probably not.

I understand that travelling runs the risks of little things being lost, but after three weeks on my last night my iPod magically disappeared. When I went to discuss with the manager, he accused me of lying and stated that if I had an issue that I could walk myself down to the police station and report it myself. Overall disgruntled with what overall was a mediocre stay.

Great location, but terrible mattresses.

my wife and i spent a 3 day weekend at this hotel. Staff was excellent and rooms always cleaned even on Sunday just before noon. Just outside hotel is a starbucks, coop supermarket, bahnhofstrase and the large cavernous shops under the train station just 100yards away. For the value, this ones tough to beat! Will certainly return.

Nice hotel near the train station. The suites are large and very comfortable. The singles are fine too. The little gym is functional, if a little awkwardly placed at the hotel entrance. Would stay here again.

Very good location but very expensive hotel.
Our room was very well but we have to pay a difference of 20 CHF for this room more than price contracted. It seems that other rooms were not the same as ours but I did not look them.

My ski group stayed here for one overnight before our flights out. It was a perfect place to stay.
The location was right across from the Train station and all the trams.
Only 15 minutes to the airport, and the hotel provides a wonderful transfer by car for its guests to the airport.
The breakfast was fast and very good. The bar was really fun as well, many locals were having drinks on Saturday night. The rooms were small but very smartly decorated and quiet!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Junior suite with a round bed!
