Very pleasant small hotel, nice location, attentive service. Room was large and clean with very comfortable beds. Tea/coffee facilities are not standard in the room, but on request they will provide this. The breakfast is excellent, plenty of choice.

For history buffs, this centuries–old hotel was the childhood home of Anna Zwingli, spouse of Ulrich Zwingli, the great sixteenth-century Swiss reformer. (See the plaque out front.) It's beautifully up-to-date, though. From the glass of white wine at check-in, the service is great. The elevator, like many things in Switzerland, is miniature; it fits one person with luggage. The room...
