Rueschlikon is a suburb of Zurich and takes about 12 minutes by train to the Zurich main station. The local train station is about 10 minute down hill walk from the hotel. It's a fabulous location if you don't mind staying a little away from the main city center.
The hotel was built from the ground up a few years ago. The design and style is modern and minimalist. We had a corner room and the view of the lake and down the lake is just gorgeous.
The room design is very functional and modern, although the separation of bathroom (sink/tub/shower) is by a wall of closet that's not quite a wall so one hears everything. The toilet is in a room by itself with a opaque glass door. I think the room design presumes people sharing a hotel room are already very intimate.
The big jacuzzi bathtub is adjacent to a big picture window with a gorgeous view but unfortunately there are neighboring residential buildings that are in full view. Instead of curtains for privacy which blocks the view and some light I think blinds would work better. The separate shower has a wonderful overhead rain shower and a smaller handheld one.
We found the bed a little bit on the soft side. At night it's peacefully quiet given it's more a residential neighborhood. we loved having complimentary juice and water on a daily basis. There is a 2-lane bowling alley but we didn't use it.
Breakfast is not usually included in the room rates and I find the breakfast buffet at CHF28 per person is a bit stiff for the selection. If the price were reduced to about CHF 20 pp then they will probably get people taking the breakfast at the hotel. There is also a continental breakfast option at CHF14 per person but it's just bread/coffee so it's still expensive for what it is. If you have a car or don't mind the walk there is a big Migros restaurant next to GDI that's about 12 minutes walk away or 3 minutes by car.
Housekeeping staff is attentive. The staff at reception during the day could be a bit more friendly by greeting hotel guests when walking through lobby instead of just looking at the monitors.
The hotel is clean, comfortable and quiet. All in all, it's a delightful hotel.
