    10-Minute walk from the train station.

    The bed was uncomfortable (sofabed quality), the bed cover had large blood stains, the smell from the old furniture and the fake wood floor was unbearable.

    An excellent boutique hotel. Clean, comfortable with excellent breakfast. The bed / linens were very nice. The art and decor throughout the hotel was quite lovely. Beautiful garden off the pretty breakfast room. Nicely located within easy walking distance of train station. Quiet. Welcoming staff.

    Be prepared to walk up flights of stairs with your suitcases.

    Exceptional

    Staffs are very nice. Rooms are decorated nicely. Sitting in the breafast room just like sitting in the museum, very enjoyable.

    The bathroom is kind small, but for all the good things the hotel can offer, we can get over with this.

    It was nice to have ac in the room. The Hotel was also convenient to the train station and the funicular to the waterfront.

    Not alot of places to eat near the hotel for a quick bite after a long day.

    Fabulous

    Quiet location while also very close to the railway station. Pleasant garden and balcony. Interesting artworks.

    The swimming pool was rather small and looked as if it needed cleaning on the day we arrived.

    Very close to the station

    The breakfast had a few pieces of bread & few pots of yoghurt & little else, very bad value for money the hotel doesn't have a lift & the rooms start from the 2nd floor onwards & the stairs are quite steep staff is not knowledgeable about the area, transport, etc

    Exceptional

    The hotel is vey conveniently located near the train station, but on a quiet side street. It is decorated with great charm and artistry and feels very much like a country villa. We loved it!

  • 10.0
    Exceptional

    The hotel is very nice with swimming pool and free wifi. The walls are decorated with different original modern paintings and sculptures. The service is excellent and kind, eg. Staff remember special breakfast demands. The town center is near (5-10 mins by foot), and if you don't like climbing the hill, the funiculare is convenient (chf 1.10/person). Highly recommended.

    No elevators, you have to climb the stairs.

    location. ambiance in the breakfast room with garden

    Breakfast minimalist, no lift, reception is not on ground level so must climb stairs to get to reception . My room has a module bathroom which was a challenge in space, and smelt bad. Owner (?) at reception was unfriendly

    Very good

    Close to the train station. Quiet area of town, but still accessible to the old town center, although it's a steep uphill walk to the hotel from downtown/lakefront. Rooms were nicely decorated, and most had a balcony.

    The breakfast selection and quantity was a bit lacking.

    Easy to locate and very close to SBB BHF. The host, the madam is very nice and helpful to guests.

    The room fare is expensive. No lift maight be a problem for passengers with large size luggage or elder trvavellers.
