This hotel has a lot going for it. The staff are excellent - friendly, very helpful, very professional. The location is terrific - a short easy stroll into old town and across the river to high end shopping on Bahnhofstraße. A range of restaurants are around the hotel, which is good because the room service menu is limited to pretty much only hamburgers. Very good hamburgers, but if you want something else, you’ll need to go out. I had a premium room with a view on to the street below. The room is large, a lot of space, however the bed is rather low. Given the size of the room, the bathroom is very small. It’s ok, but as a 6’1” male with broad shoulders, the shower is somewhat of an issue. The shower rose is over a bathtub, the width of which is slightly bigger than my shoulders. It makes things awkward to shower, so if you are looking for a good long shower after a hard day, this won’t do it. A smaller person would have no problem. There are no USB power points, and my older European power converter did not fit the oddly shaped, deep Swiss power points, so you’ll need a multi converter or at least a new European converter with long prongs. Bottled water is also sparse. I’ve been told water from the tap is ok, but after a horror experience in Italy, i now only drink bottled when travelling. The one complimentary bottle was sparkling (which I hate because I think it tastes like aspirin), but still is available if you ask. After a long day/flight, I just wish I didn’t have to ask. Overall a very good hotel, just needs some small attention to details to make it excellent...and a big person shower.
