The room was simple, but really clean. A bottle of water and chocolates were left every day. It reminded me of going on holidays as a kid, has that old style hotel feel. Staff were really nice, very helpful. The rooms are simple, the hotel dates back to the 1500's. They have modernized the ground floor and bar. Its smack... More

A little expensive but probably the right price by Swiss standards. The hotel is quaint and offers an adequate continental breakfast, complimentary water & wifi in the room, safe car parking all in... More

the hotel has large rooms with modern furniture and good beds. It is ideally located in the center of the old town. The train station is farer away. Even the rooms on the side of the main road are quite quiet. For early birds: no breakfast buffet but a breakfast packet according to one's wishes.

Unlike previous reviewers I did not find this hotel amazing. Situated as it is on a busybut narrow main road with a narrow side walk, offloading bags and people from a car would not be possible - it is necessary to park up at least 50 metres away. There are only a small number of rooms and I felt that... More
