I had returned to the Hotel des Arts in Neuchâtel because of its central location and its proximity to the funicular railway leading up to the station. It´s popular, and the only room available was a more expensive "suite". My experience with their suites had been that they were simply larger rooms, capable of sleeping three, with a pull-out sofa.
On the sixth floor, they have at least one more luxurious room (607), with better furniture and a very smart bathroom with bath / spa and rain-room style shower. And to 607 I was told I had received an upgrade.
It had been a summer day, and as I entered I was surprised (not) to see a ventilator on full blast. It was 7.30pm but the room was still very hot - and there´s no A/C. Fortunately, the windows open and I could get some cooler evening air in, but during a hot summer day, I can´t imagine anyone staying inside there for long voluntarily. Unless, of course, they turn on the cold water and sit in the shower. Perhaps that´s why it has a seat ....
