I stayed at Ochsen Hotel a couple of times for my business trips, very well located (close to Zug Postplatz Station), with nice and clean rooms and staff. The whole hotel is very quiet. Good breakfast is a plus.

My family live in Zug and we are coming to spend Christmas with them. My daughter is 5 and will sleep with us. Can I book for just 2 adults as she will share a bed with us? Thank you,
Be advised that the beds tend to be on the small side--especially for 3 people.

"Make sure to indicate whether you are solo or traveling with more than 1 per room as the room sizes vary."
"Rooms that you see their window from the front of hotel have great view including Time tower and Zug lake."
"its better to find another hotel whether inside or outside zug ."
