    Superb

    Superb location, center the city and five minutes walk from the rail station. Friendly staff, very helpful.

    I guess Switzerland is just expensive anyway..........

    Very good

    Excellent location! The hotel is very near the central station, old town and city centre. Its safe to walk around the area at night. You can have late night dinner is nearby nice restaurants. Hotel facilities are good - coffee/tea in the room, with AC, etc., expected in a 4-star hotel..but not extraordinary. Ah..nice welcome drinks!

    Its a bit expensive. Though, Switzerland is very expensive country!! Supplies in the bathroom for a 4 star hotel is very basic. For example, there was no small lotion available in the room or even when I requested one in the reception.

    Fabulous

    Central location, good organization, friendly and efficient staff, elevator, electrical kettle in the room, flexibility demonstrated by the staff in extending the checkout time by 2 hours (to 2pm)

    1) The air-conditioning system did not allow to easily support pleasant climate with fresh air in the room - it was blowing too strongly and smelling unpleasantly; 2) the breakfast was poor

    The staff were incredibly helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We had absolutely everything we needed in a fantastic and convenient location. Air conditioning was a great benefit. I would definitely stay again and again and will recommend it to friends. Wifi was very fast and free.

    There was absolutely nothing I can complain about.
