“Convenient In Baden”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

I traveled from the USA on business to Baden, Switzerland the first week in December and, although the Hotel Linde was not my first choice, I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It is very convenient to the train station (5 min walk) and my company's offices and Baden is a nice town in general that you can see mostly by walking. The hotel has about 12 floors and with maybe 6 rooms on each floor. My room was very comfortable (corner room), had a balcony, and the bed was comfortable. The rate, $215 CHF/night, included breakfast. I only had breakfast in the restaurant but it was good and had a good selection. The staff at the desk spoke English and were very friendly. There was a bar but I didn't see many people in it during the 3 nights I was there (except for some colleagues and me). I definitely would recommend this hotel for the business traveler and vacationers would probably like it too. The only down side is the elevator. It will hold 4 people or 2 with luggage. Luckily, there aren't many rooms so I didn't have to wait much.

I had been there for business travel in July 2011 for 6 nights and 7 days.

Its very convenient for commute, its close from train station, there is a bus stop right in front of it.

The staff is nice and warm. We arrived an hour after their official lunch time was over, yet they did serve us the much needed food :). Also guided us about sight seeing and stuff when enquired!

Food is ok, breakfast is also ok, nothing memorable as such.

Room is small and weird, with no real closet, just a couple of hangers and 2 slots to put your clothes in. The internet access is very expensive!!

Worst part is as everyone pointed out, there is no Air conditioner and neither a fan!

Dear Sir,
First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time and sharing your impressions about your stay at the Hotel Linde Baden with us. We constantly aim to improve our service and our infrastructure in order to satisfy the expectations of our guests. Even though negative feedback is never nice to receive, we try to avail this opportunity and improve our service and quality standards.

As regards the price for the wireless internet access we would like to point out that as of June 2011 we provide a free internet access in the public area of the hotel, this includes the Cafeteria, the Reception/Lobby, the Lounge, the Hotel Bar as well as the Restaurant on the 1st floor and the Breakfast area. This internet access is free of charge and may be used by our hotel guests 24/7. Further, at the reception we also provide a business station computer (incl. printer), which our hotel guests may use free of any charge to access the internet. Many of our clients need a security certified internet access to be able to access their companies’ networks or intranets. Therefore, the Wireless Lan that our guests may access in the rooms is such a security certified access and is provided by Swisscom, which also determines the prices for this access.

Since we have only a few very hot days in summer, there is normally no air conditioning necessary. For our guest’s convenience we equipped all rooms with powerful fans in July 2011.Finally, we will evaluate whether and how a rearrangement of the closets could be of use for our guests.

Finally, we are looking forward to a second chance welcoming you again in our hotel.
With our best regards
Family Wanner & Hotel Linde Team

We stayed for 2 months in one of the apartments on the 7 th floor with 2 small children, it was temporary while we found a house, it was unbelivibly hot in the apartment and no form of air conditioning and with 2 small children on the 7th floor we could only tilt the windows!!! We went out and had to purchase 8 fans to keep us cool, we had to keep our rubbish on the balcony as they only go out on the sidewalk once a week so you can imagine the smell and with nappies aswell yuck!, we complained about the rubbish and was told that other people do it so it should be fine, the iron in the apartment didn't have steam and when I told the mananger it needed to be replaced he told me to iron with a damp towel!!! Not a good first experience in a new country

Dear Guest,
First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time and sharing your impressions about your stay at the Hotel Linde Baden with us. We constantly aim to improve our service and our infrastructure in order to satisfy the expectations of our guests.
As you mentioned, in the Hotel Linde Building there is not only the Hotel with its rooms, there are also apartments and offices in the same building. The Hotel offers apart from the classic hotel rooms one furnished apartment for rent. Hotel rooms and furnished apartments are substantial different lodging concepts (in price and services level).
We apologize for the inconvenience during your stay in this apartment and would like to point out the following:
Your comment on the air conditioning we certainly understand. All of our hotel rooms are equipped with a fan, the apartment on the other hand is equipped with a basic stock of all kind of home furnishings. Upon your feedback we will consider to equip the apartment with a fan too, as well as acquire an iron with steam.
Further, we would like to point out that if a company or private person rents the furnish apartment, it is like renting a regular “unfurnished” apartment elsewhere. Thereby the tenants are responsible for cleaning, cooking, washing cloth, etc. themselves. Hence, the apartment is not part of the hotel, and will not be cleaned every day, towels won’t be changed daily, nor is breakfast included. On the other hand, you can use the washing premises to wash your cloths yourself, as all the other tenants can, whereas the hotel guests can only use the washing service offered by the hotel.
As regards the waist, what our manager meant is that in Baden the waist is collected once a week by the community. All the tenants of the building deposit their waist once a week in the evening outside the houses on the street, where it is picked up in the morning by the city waste service.
Again, hotel rooms and furnished apartments are substantial different lodging concepts. However, in case our Hotel staff has missed to unambiguously point out to these differences we sincerely apologize.

With our best regards
Family Wanner & Hotel Linde Team

The temperature in the room was over 80F, the manager was aware & did not offer to move us to another part of the hotel even though there were only 2 other guests in the entire hotel.
The breakfast was very meager, there were 2 slices of each of the 2 varieties of cold cuts, we were never offered another cup of coffee.
Very disappointing hotel for the money in August which is off season for this area.
Overall, I would call it a rip-off and very bad for the reputation of Swiss hotellerie

Stayed 4 Nights at this Hotel in Baden. Normally I stay at Du Parc, but that was fully booked.

Rooms are OK. Breakfast was OK. Biggest problem was the 34 degrees outside. Without aircondition it was hard to get any sleep.

But not to bad hotel

Linde has imporved since 2006 when I stayed there for the first time - was horrible then, but in Feb 2008, was pleasantly surprised by the cosy rooms, restuarant. Location wise is near the old city of Baden & one can explore the old city on foot from this hotel.

Linde is located a short walk from the top end of Baden's old town. It takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the station.

I loved our double room, but my wife said the single room she had before I arrived was tiny. She didn't like it at all.

The double room was like a small apartment. New wood floors, comfortable furniture, big veranda and automatic lights in the bathroom. We had a view of a small castle and the old town. The breakfast was basic. Only eggs and ham, but lots of bread, cereals and yogurt.

My dislikes were walking through a dark traffic tunnel to get to the hotel, and the busy bus stop out front, which is crowded with teenagers acting tough and students racing through the crowd on bikes and skateboards.

Elevators are slow, and the tiny TV is mounted so high you'll strain your neck to watch it.

I loved the room, but would not stay here again. I'd stay in the Old Town, or the shopping street near the station.

  • Liked — Nice looking room with a view.
  • Disliked — The location, the elevators and the tiny TV mounted to the ceiling.
