As requested I got a quiet room on the backside, well appointed and clean. Wifi connection has worked perfectly all the three days I spent there. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast not unforgettable but it's Ok, cooked eggs and bacon, friut, cheese ect ... I am not giving the best score because it is really in front of the station, good if you are there for business, not exaclty charming if you want a romantic weekend. I tried the sushi restaurant, as said by others, not bad but just too expensive, as many of the restaurant around the city. I had a good pizza at DIECI, very popular and not so expensive.

The Hotel Speer offers a good-value wedding package; we booked nine rooms for guests travelling to Rapperswil from the UK, Canada, France and the Netherlands for our son's wedding. The hotel was ideal with excellent service and is easy to reach, opposite the railway station with parking close by. The rooms were comfortable, quiet and well-equipped and the wedding couple were given a beautiful suite. Convenient for the lake front, historic town centre and the Holzsteg (boardwalk) over the lake. We all loved it.

Hotel was very clean, personnel were very helpful and friendly, location near the train station and the waterfront couldn't had been better, good amenity the free use of a health spa/fitness centre nearby, nice touches the box of chocolates with a thank you note in our room twice, super hotel, super Rapperswil whose location made it ideal for our several travels inside Switzerland and into Germany too.

We went to Rapperswil for the Iron man 70.3 event. As you can imagine after the title in my review, I found the hotel location absolutely excellent for the event and for the town itself.
It's just opposite the railway station and I thought it might be a bit noisy but it wasn't at all. Last night I left the balcony open and we slept like babies.
Walk 200 meters and you are already by Lake Zurich with a nice square and promenade full of restaurants and bars.
Our room, on the 4th floor, was big enough for the two of us and a bike (and its case). Bedroom and bathroom absolutely clean.
On the ground floor there's a bar with a nice terrace (Mojo) and an Oriental restaurant (we didn't try but someone in our group did and they loved it).
Breakfast is buffet: Juices, fruit, sausages, eggs, cheese and cold meat, yoghourt, croissants, bread, toast, cereal and your choice of tea, coffee, hot chocolate...

For internet conection, there's cable and wifi, plus a computer in reception for clients to use.
Cable TV with loads of channels in different languages.
