It was with some trepidation that we booked a room here, having read a couple of reviews, albeit a few years old. Having left things until very late, there was no real choice if we wanted a room at a reasonable price, so we decided to take the risk - and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was well-placed for the old city, the manager was extremely helpful, the room had an en suite, which was virtually as big as the room itself, and there was was a television on which we could pick up a couple of English-speaking channels. For 155 Swiss francs for the night, it might not have been unreasonable to have expected breakfast, but we were grateful to be allowed to leave our cases in the reception office for day after checking out. We booked directly with the hotel by email, and I suspect that there might have been room for negotiation on the price. We were broadly satisfied with what we booked, given the price of other hotels in the city. The negatives were that the walls were very thin, so we were able to hear someone clumping about in the neighbouring room for a while, and we would have preferred a cotton sheet rather that what felt like winciette. The room was very dated, but I suppose that you get what you pay for.
