Spent a pleasant night at the Helmhaus -- our lone night in Switzerland during a driving tour of Germany and Italy. The location is great--in the old town, not right on but very close to the river (so less noise at night), and a few steps from a tram stop by the same name (Helmhaus). However, it's a bit hard...

We ended our 8 day tour of Switzerland at Hotel Helmhaus and had a very nice stay.

A good location, very clean rooms and bathrooms although a little basic. A terrible design of the shower. Had a room overlooking the square which was terribly noisy with the windows open but that is to be expected in the middle of a city.The staff were lovely. The breakfast buffet was plentiful with the scrambled eggs suberb.
