Helpful staff. Great location.clean spacious room. We would stay here again. We had a garden room. Not much garden and it meant no view of the river or mountains. But the room was excellent. Just a short walk to the supermarket accross the river and only about 1km from the railway station . Very much right in the action for...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. There were 4 of us in a room with a double bed and 2 bunks. The bathroom was shared. View out on to the river was lovely. Staff very helpful. We reserved a park behind the hotel in advance. There are only 3 parks so it would pay to do this in advance...

Ok, I saw the same photos as you probably have seen already, and thought, if the big rooms look like this, how bad the bunkers of 90 euros will be... (they don't appear in the professional photos) Well let me tell you that if you are planing to go for the bunkers more than one night, think twice! the bunkers...

The hotel may not look impressive on the outside but the room was clean and spacious. The reception staff was also very helpful and attended to all our queries patiently. Breakfast spread was reasonable, healthy and nutritious. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.

We stayed here on the way through from Holland to Italy, Rimini. We parked there for only CHF 5.00 through help of staff at the reception desk. He gave us every information at the desk and a nice room ar the front overseeing the river and the town and castle at the other side of the street. Exactly what we...

Although the reception area looks a bit shabby and utilitarian, the triple room that my sisters and I shared was lovely. Very clean, modern, great bathroom and spacious. We had a balcony with lovely windows overlooking the river and mountains. It was about 10 minutes walk to the lake. We arrived by car and there was reasonable street parking available...

I stayed here for 4 nights for a single room and shared bathroom. I was expecting a bunk bed and a very tiny small room but the room was actually spacious and had two twin beds (although I was traveling by myself). They gave me the 5th floor with a view of the river. It was really beautiful and pleasant....

Spent a very pleasant night here. The room was beautiful and modern. Especially the bathroom. We had a garden view but the river view would have been much better. The free breakfast was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. They even saved us s bundle on tour prices. Downside - it's Switzerland and everything is really expensive. It...

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a stay at the hotel that included a suite with kitchen, and small garden area. We were greeted warmly and escorted to our room. We had a full kitchen for which we made simple meals so we could relax. The hotel also provided a free breakfast and provided free wireless. Excellent...

Well all I can say is that it was one of the nicest experiences I have had. I have stayed in 5* hotels but nothing beats a hotel if you have unbelievable personnel in reception who arrange anything you want including your washing! If we needed Mt Titlis tickets they sold them to us, told us where to catch the...
