Good Employees, average property.

The staff was friendly enough, this is a no frill hotel. shared bathroom outside the room which was not that bad. not having an AC in the middle of summer was brutal. to be fair, this is more common in Europe than one would think. When we decided that the heat was just unbearable and decided to go to a different hotel, they gave us credit for one of the nights we didn't stay but also charged for one. again to be fair, that is in keeping with the hotel's cancelation policy. this is not a complaint about the staff. They were as nice as could be but a word to the wise, if you're going to Europe in the summer, DO NOT assume that all hotels will have AC

Location, location, location

Reading the reviews helped us pick the property right for our vacation. We read the warnings about the Church bells and the noise of partiers when the windows were open. We definitely experienced noise but were prepared with our earplugs. The location was exactly what we wanted. Walking distance to the train station, major sights and lake tours. We loved having the option of breakfast in the morning or a drink at our hotel in the evening. Our room was cleaned very well everyday and the coffee machine refilled. An nice touch was the apples we could take everyday. Also, the Ricola throat candies were a nice Swiss bonus.

I need a toilet

Not every room has a bathroom, so if that’s important to you then read all the fine print.
