    Superb

    The desk was very helpful booking our city/lake tours. Breakfast was wonderful. We enjoyed the various spaces the hotel offered us to relax in.(roof pool bar) Appreciated that the off loading of luggage from the car was easy because of the entry parking area. A very nice location within an easy walk of everything. Loved the spacious room.

    The light from the walkway out front shined into the room around the closed curtains. The hotel was very expensive, as were all of the Swiss Hotels we stayed at. Did not feel they were especially good values. If we vacation in Europe again we will spend less time in Switzerland and more time in the neighboring countries. Sorry that these were complaints.

    Good underground parking but you have to pay. Nice garden and pool at rear. Good location. Good breakfast.

    Dated interior that also lacked charm. Bathroom very poor with hideous brown tiles.

    Location is excellent, a very short walk from the centre, and funicular rail from the main railway station. On the lake front and we had a fantastic balcony on the corner of the 5th floor with amazing views. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    The rooms are a bit tired, although clean. Our room was a superior one but was still not large, looking on the floor plan some of the rooms would have been very cramped. No mini bar.

    Very good

    It is located right in the pedestrian shopping area which is very convenient.

    since it is in a pedestrian zone, it is loud during the night. That isnt so great...

    Superb

    Very interesting history, paintings, museum. Top situation and very friendly and helpful staff. Mattress/bed very confortable. Great breakfast buffet.

    Insulation problems between neighbouring rooms, i.e. you need a real deep sleep as you participate whatever happens next door on both sides : people talking, TV, snoring, love making etc. etc. Probably due to the fact that it is a 105 year old historical building. My suggestion : put on the AC on minimum to avoid all those noises !
