Old but clean. Small room and tiny bathroom. Worst breakfast ever seen: fruit and yogurt only one day out of 5. Coffee out of a jug. If you are a budget traveller but want some comfort, that’s the right place. Close to downtown, restaurants and shops. Tram stop a stone throw away.

The hotel was very handy near supermarket and trams , close to city centre. Staff were very nice , it was clean , the only problem was it had old fashioned decoration. I didn’t have breakfast there, it was very expensive.

Good hotel close to the centre.
Located a 10-15 min walk from the lake, on a busy street with trams going past, not moisy with window closed though. The room was nice, bed soft, tv had english channels. There were some marks on the pillow cases and the chandelier wasn’t fitted to the ceilng correctly, otherwise a very nice room. Expensive breakfast at CHF26. Limited parking behind the hotel at CHF32/nt. there is a lift, but it is small, enough room for obe person and a suitcase. Would stay here again.
