This hotel used to be fabulous. The new owner has ruined it. The building is old; the rooms small and mod. cons. are non existent. This has always been the case.
The problem is that the new owner has changed the layout and the atmosphere. The superb first floor room formerly used for dining has become an unused conference room but is also the corridor to many bedrooms leading to a conflict on the rare occasions it is used.
The pizzeria/bar has become a completely unsuitable breakfast room.
The old restaurant is now the dining room. The service is slow- VERY slow and the choice laughable. The food quality is poor.
The staff are unfriendly - the owner in particular.
And this then highlights the unfortunate drawbacks of staying in such an old building which previously you could ignore.
The location is good but that's not enough and of course the price is typically Swiss expensive.
There are much better hotels in the area at the same or lower prices.
Please don't stay at this hotel - you will be very disappointed.
