Perfectly clean room, warm welcome, free internet, delicious breakfast with a large choice of food and drinks - and the bed was so comfortable that I did not hear the trains! The hotel is also close to the old town, which is worth a visit.

Perfect for train commuters. Good restaurants and cafes near by. Hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and modern. I didn't know how to work the blinds at first (automated with a switch), some train noise, room got warm at night and no ability to adjust temperature with the exception of opening a window. Good value.

We booked 1 night in this hotel on our way to Germany because the reviews were good and a very reasonable price for Swiss hotels. Not easy to find but 100% worth it. Friendly welcome and nice room. Everything perfect like a Swiss clock. Breakfast excellent. All a very pleasant surprise. Olten is a nice town, restaurants and train station...

Yes, very close to the train station. Very close as in a brief few steps. But very well made and insulated - even with the windows cracked I barely noticed the occasional passing train. Parking lot in the rear. Rooms are small, reasonably appointed, and far from extravagant. My desk was tiny, barely holding my laptop. If you plan to...

I am absolutely thrilled with our stay. This hotel is simply great. The staff is friendly, professional and know what "Hotellerie Suisse" is all about. (Very rare in Switzerland) The rooms are clean and modern. The rooms are dead quiet even if it is smack near the train station and tracks. The parking is convenient. The breakfast is great and...

Unassuming hotel next to Olten's train station. Don't expect anything fancy. Small, basic rooms. Unfortunately our air conditioner made (a lot of) noise (even whilst turned off). Hotel staff is friendly, breakfast is adequate.
