“OK for a stopover”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We stayed here on our way to Italy. This friendly hotel is nicely located for a stopover: close to the highway, near the Gotthard tunnel. We enjoyed Italian-style dinner on the terrace of the good restaurant. Some drawbacks: the old and very basic furnishing (no fridge), the railway just across the street (could use some ear plugs during the night), the price (little too high, especially if you compare it to France or Germany).

On the way to Southern France stright after the St. Gotthard tunnel is this small, cosy and old familyhotel with a long history. The hotel room was large, old fashioned furnished - feeling like in the 50es or 60es. A very large comfortable bed. Very nice and handsome wellcoming by the host. We eat a very good menu with lokal dishes - even the fish was fresh. The prices in the restaurant - menu and wine - were surprising reasonable. We were in Switzerland

Stayed here one night while on a hike. The hotel is simple but characterful and clean. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. Had a good meal in the restaurant despite my late arrival. The restaurant even has a functioning jukebox :-)
