      very centrally located, best shopping area, by the lake, traditional and historic interior

      Location is good,

      Hotel staff is very very poor, they forget hospitality, facilities is old as chf330,

    • Group of friends

      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.

    • Older travelers

      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.

      Location

      I told tjhem I had alreadzy paid for the room through your agencz but they made me pay again and added a fee. I noticed that on my credit card that two payments for the same night are pending.

    • Couple
      6.6

      location was central to shopping area and next to the lake, hotel was clean, staff were friendly

      rooms were dark and small, breakfast was poor selection, no wireless in rooms

    • Couple

      Excellent Location, very nice antique Building, very well maintained, very charming/interesting history, sentimental!! Very well thought out!

    • Couple
      7.4

      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...

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Perfect location, dogs allowed, good service, garage, great view

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well taken care off. The morning buffet was excellent and the dinners were tasty for the price we paid. Overall a good experience.....

    • Couple
      9.2

      The stuff was helpful, location of the hotel is excellent, rooms clean and tidy, good breakfast.

      Beds were on the soft side.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      the cleanleness,staff,location,car park,lake view

      the breakfast was poor ,always boiled eggs,if you want scrampled you have to pay,car park is not free

    • Single
      9.2

      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 !
