    Too old, and not a word about it in description.

    We only stayed one night but the bed and mattress were comfortable also enjoyed the bar downstairs

  • Older travelers

    It was ideally situated near main rail station and bus/tram stops. Room was quite comfortable but more 4* than 5*.

    Buffet cooked breakfast pretty awful, coffee terrible and very expensive. My wife simply had a yoghurt and fruit and still got charged about 40CHF - £25. Only did it once - Starbucks across the road expensive but much better quality.

    Good access to the hotel from the main routes. An experience consistent with that you'd expect from a Hilton. Good rooms, good breakfast, secure on site parking etc. Good access to City centre via trams which leave the tram station 2 minutes from the hotel. The staff were very helpful..

    Very expensive - and not great value for money accordingly - This hotel would be better value if it were 50% less - Beware the mini bar - It tried to charge us 71 CHF for putting a bottle of water in ! I had booked what I thought was a twin room (in 2 rooms) but what I got was a small twin - so we had to book another ...

    The location is good, 2 minutes from SBB station, but it is not in a nice part of town. The hotel basically looks like an old office building along a busy road.

    - we ordered a baby-cot for our room upon booking, asked if it was installed at check-in, which was confirmed to us. We walked to the room ourselves (nobody offered to show us to the room) to find no baby-cot. We had to call the reception twice and wait one hour in the room until the baby-cot finally arrived - there was no bed-sheet provided for the babycot mattress, so we used one of the bathtowels, as we couldn't be bothere calling the reception again. - we booked a double-room, had a double-bed, but only one single duvet was on the bed. We called the reception again to have a larger duvet, or a second duvet. We had to call a second time two hours later when returning to the room for it to be brought to the room. - we asked the reception staff/concierge at which tram stop to get off to go to a restaurant in town. He checked on the internet, indicated us a tram stop, which ended up being the wrong stop (had to ask our way and walked back half the way...) - the breakfast buffet was nice, shame there was some hair in my bread and the waiters bring coffee and a jug of (almost cold) milk when we order a cappucino - looking forward to the pool, it turned to be the most strange looking pools I have ever seen in any hotel. It is in the basement in a dark room, is lighted up with blue spotlights making it look like a cheap porno-movie set. The entrance of the "gym/spa" area reminded me of a hospital reception. The whole "spa" area gets crowded if you are more than 4 or 5 people (which you obviously are). - small bathroom in the room, the water was either boiling hot or freezing cold. There were two hair-conditionner, but no shampoo in the amenities, great ! The hair-dryer is installed in such a way that if you are any taller than 170cm, you have to bend down to use it, as the cord is too short and you can not plug it out and use another plug...
