Stayed in November for 3 nights. The hotel was clean and well located. It was pouring rain for the 3 days we were there, but I assume the view is lovely when its sunny outside. I liked the included breakfast as it was diversified and eggs/omelettes were made on demand. The room was a great size, well decorated, and mine...

stayed here for a week; got an amazing room with a balcony; no A/C, but this is typical in this area bc it gets colder at sun down; the problem is that you leave the balcony door w/o screen and window door with slightly damaged screen opened and a bunch of tiny flying bugs come in (~ over 50); with...

We visited the terrace of Hotel Schwanen and were given the "Bar menu". It was not untill we left that we found out that the restaurant, for which we were looking, was at the other side of the entrance. Pity. The "Bar menu" was mainly pasta. We ordered octopusrings with linguine and ravioli with salmon. These dishes were well prepared...

The hotel is perfectly located. Good parking area and very good WIFI. Open air restaurant for Dinner is a perfect setting overlooking the lake. Front side rooms have a breathtaking view. Inhouse ameninities are welcoming. Seldom you get such good quality of fruit is the fruit basket. A small but very attractive lobby is welcoming.

We enjoyed coffee and cake in our shirtsleeves on a sunny afternoon on Valentines weekend. There are some sheepskin rugs you can sit on outside as well. The lattes were piping hot and the plum cake was delicious-almost like a plum crumble. Would definitely go back again.

We stayed here at their Trumpsuite and the view is absolutely mesmerising. Hotel is just 5mins walk from the Rapperswill station. Excellent breakfast buffet and very cordial staff. Very helpful in guiding for daily tours/sights etc. The room is extremely spacious with some of the best facilities

The hotel is nice, located by the lake, few minutes walk from the railway station. The staff was nice, good english speaking. I don't believe many people come to Jona unless it is for business. I got a nice room with a view of the lake, it is really nice. They gave me a free early check in.

Booked the hotel at last minute in fact the same day as travel ,when I arrived the man on reception was very professional and spoke excellent English .His main priority was to ensure I had a welcome drink which is a first for me .Overall a very charming hotel next to the lake with lovely views and excellent facilities .

This was our third visit in twenty years or so. Very little has changed except for room amenities and the key/card. If you remember the time when mastering the door key required admission into MENSA, fret no more. A single electronic swipe will do the trick. Yes, there is no air conditioning as is the case in many 4 star...
