We just returned from 3 days at this wonderful hotel. It was an excellent choice. The staff is so helpful and tries very hard to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one. We had a slight problem during our stay and were compensated with a generous upgrade to an executive suite even though we weren't looking for anything from the hotel. Their goal is to make sure you have an excellent experience there.
The location is great - right at the bottom of the funicular which makes train travel so easy. The shops and restaurants are nearby and we found a great department store a short distance away.
The hotel lobby is a quiet, pleasant place to sit and relax. There is always coffee and tea available and jars of various candies at the reception desk. The bar provided beautiful canapes and appetizers each evening for whose enjoying cocktails in the bar area. Our room was attractively decorated with complimentary beverages in the mini bar. There was a nice array of toiletries in our bathroom. I could not believe they were given to each guest at no cost. It included shampoo, soap, men and women's cologne and body lotion in large bottles. The wifi worked great from the room. We even enjoyed the little rubber duck sitting in our sink. It was a nice touch. The staff was great - always willing to help with any request and they graciously made all our travel arrangements for us. Ask at the desk for discount tickets to many nearby attractions.
The breakfast buffet was fantastic - the best ever! The croissants were lovely. Such a large offering. I would not normally drink hot chocolate in the morning but I just had to try it. There were 2 huge urns with white and dark hot clocolate inside them.. It was so very, very good. It was like drinking a cup of hot chocolate pudding. I'm sure I' ll wish I had it back here at home and it made a memory I'll have forever of the delicious taste.
I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. It was quiet and peaceful - a perfect ending to our trip. The pool and the lake are nearby, not directly on site.
