As a returning customer, we already knew what to expect. And we weren't disappointed. A warm and friendly welcome, rather old (as to be expected in a historic hotel) but nevertheless nice and spacious rooms and very good food in the adjoining La Sosta restaurant. The breakfast buffet is always fresh with a variety of local stuff. It's not easy... More

Pretty bad experience with this hotel. Stay as part of a wedding group and got charged an extra day because the bride booked me in for 3 days instead of 2, and the owner refused to just charge me for the day I stayed. This is all the more annoying given how poor the hotel was, it was 30 minutes... More

The furniture is original from the 18th century and it also features ceiling fresco, qualities that are typical for a Swiss Historic Hotel. The juniorsuite mentioned measures 43 qm. Technical devices are given, such as DAB-Radio, phone and... More
