positiv: very near to the railway station,probably the only usp.
negativ: bathroom size very small, no outlet to outside fresh air, exhaust did not work.Staff said exhaust was working slowly-- without any sound?No tea /coffee making facilities in room- had to go to the mother hotel down the street even for early morning tea!! Reception was not manned as described when we reached,around noon.Tough time locating entry door and staff to show us our room.Corridors were dark and lights had to be manually switched on every time one entered.
positiv: One of the best breakfasts I have had in Switzerland, especially in the price range
negativ: The room was on the small side but had everything I needed
positiv: Relatively basic room but had everything that I required.
Excellent breakfast at the adjacent Hotel Monopol.
The deal that I had was good value for money
I will definitely stay here again on my next trip if a similar deal is available.
negativ: The reception was unmanned much earlier than the 22.00 stated in the hotel description, so I had to check in at the nearby Hotel Monopol. The reception there were very helpful and courteous
positiv: The hotel is close to the station. It is also reasonably cheap
negativ: The bed was far too small. It can also be slightly noisy at night. Breakfast can only be taken at the hotel next door.
positiv: Very near railway station. Helpful staff. 4 star breakfast for a 3 star price.
positiv: They suggested to me to buy a parking ticket for 10 CHF so that I can park the car nearby the hotel without any problem.
positiv: Nothing positive
negativ: Although I asked for a double bed I was given a deplorable small room with a single bed. I ended up paying an extra 56 Swiss Francs to get a reasonable size room!
