While not in the immediate vicinity of the train station, this hotel is easily accessible on the excellent tram system with very little walking involved. Once checked in to the hotel you can walk to almost all destinations in the city. The hotel is clean and professionally managed. Like Switzerland in general, it might seem a little expensive for the relatively simple facilities but based on my research the rates are fair. We had a room near the top floor in the back overlooking roof tops and liked it very much. The bathroom was updated and while not large, the room itself was perfectly adequate. The breakfasts are fairly "standard" Swiss cold continental style (except for the opportunity to boil your own egg in a cauldron that is constantly on), but excellent by the standards of most other countries. In other words, I thought it was great, but am mindful of others who have suggested that all hotels should offer hot fare with breakfast. I should add that while I felt that the great majority of the Swiss staff members in hotels throughout the country tend to come across as professional but not especially warm or friendly (which is fine with me and I do not take personally), the young woman that oversees the breakfast room is the exception to the general rule and was extremely pleasant and helpful.
