We have been there for new year eve. Good breakfast and good service. The room was quite small but very clean. Prices little too high. Strategically good to visit town or to walk along the lake. Buses right outside the entrance brings u to the other side of the rivers

My wife, I and our for kids (17, 14, 11, 8) stayed for one night. The location is ideal, within short walking distance to the main attractions. The rooms were nice, wifi was good and breakfast was adequate. Parking was close to hotel in garage. The only downside was the price, but a lot of Switzerland is way pricey.

Stayed here with my family in the beginning of October for 4 nights. The location is good, close to train station, shopping complex, and all tourist places.

I stayed in this hotel because of business reasons. Excellent location, new and clean, nice staff. The only things to complain about & were missing for perfection: - No air conditionned in the rooms... believe me, in Summer it would have been necessary - TV quality was bad. The signal didn't arrived properly, so the TV shows were often interrupted...

The Hotel serviced us well. Location is good. Breakfast is also not bad. Rooms not that spacious but reasonable. Bath tub needs to be more protected from water falling out rather the a small glass shield.
