        Very good
        Based on 258 reviews

        Individual guest reviews

        • Single
          6.2

          Central Location and uncomplicated.

          I was overcharged CHF20 on my bill which I only noticed later. Desk staff couldn't be bothered to call a taxi for me and I had to walk to the Station in some pain with a bad leg. Not very professional.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          We were 2 adults + 2 kids. I liked that the room had 2 double beds so we sleeped comfortably. The breakfast for children was free of charge and it was good. Having kettle and tea in the room was nice. Location of the hotel is very good - it is close to the lake and to the gare.

          The staff atthe reception was sometimes missing - you come at the reception desk and it is empty.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Nice hotel comparing with others hotels around. Many restaurants nearby.

          At the night many people offer drags and sex. I do feel safe in that area in the night

        • Couple
          10.0

          Efficient, location and friendly staff. Quiet room even if a lot of people on our floor.

          Nothing to complain about.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The rooms were very comfortable .

          Their record keeping does not seem to be very efficient as I booked two rooms and have been charged for four rooms. I have been reimbursed for one of those rooms but am still waiting to be reimbursed for the other room.

        • Single
          6.6

          The hotel is centrally located. It is modern and clean.

          The hotel was overpriced for this type of hotel. It is not in a good section of town and the rooms were very small. It has a modern design which is form over function. The chairs looked modern, but were too small to sit in them. The hotel is showing some wear and needs to be updated. I was surprised to see lumpy and worn bedding in the room. Look around and choose another hotel.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Exellent range of services and facilities

          When walking from the Train station to the hotel you are walking through the seedier part of town and it is not to inspiring ! Once you get your bearings and understand the layout of the town then you can avoid this area.Perhaps a courtesy bus to ferry from the Train station ( 10 mins trip ) could solve this. Over all a great stay.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Staff were friendly and efficient, exceptionally so.

        • Single
          5.4

          The comfort of the bed

          The location - neighborhood of the hotel, the price

        • Single
          10.0

          I loved the size of the room and the cleanliness of it. Great

          The size of the elevators

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Nice breakfast buffet

          Feather duvet on the bed in very warm weather. Very limited television channel selection. Location is in middle of red light district. Hotel lobby has zero charm or ambiance.

        • Single
          8.2

          Lots of restaurants nearby, close to the city centre.

          Although close to red light district, I never felt insecure, not even late evening.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          I liked that the staff seemed to be willing to cater to anyone. They were helpful with food suggestions.

          I didn't like that I felt uncomfortable leaving the hotel at a certain point in the night because of the drug dealers and prostitutes within the 2 block radius of the hotel. Even during the day it was a bit uncomfortable

        • Single
          9.2

          No hot breakfast served in the room, and not much selection for breakfast in the restaurant. This hotel is only suitable for a short stay, quick and easy. Parking is very expensive if you cant find a free space.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Their continuous improvement process, and their team concern about customer needes.
