Most accomodating and friendly staff and management. Great complimentary drinks on terrace Friday nights. Close to station (not the main station) , the lake and old town. I made a mess of my booking and the staff could not have have been more helpful in accommodating us.

I have now repeatedly used this hotel. While at first, I was positively impressed, I have bad feelings now. This time, there were different small problems. As an honored-status guest, I asked if I could check-in early (around noon). Per email, I received an answer that the usual check-in time was 2 o'clock and that early check-in is upon availability....

We arrived by train from Basel and took a taxi to the hotel from the main train station. It was a very short drive and well worth the price because it'd be too long a walk from this arrival point, and with luggage probably too inconvenient on public transport.
