Stayed here twice a few night, with a short separation. First I stayed in one of the non-view rooms, and found this room quite small, and rather depressing. The room looked over the court yard and gym, which did not allow for opening the curtains. Too dark for my taste. Bed was comfortable.
The second time I stayed in a lake view room, and what a difference! Larger room, nice view, good light. Realising that these rooms were similar price, and quite expensive, I felt that I rather overpaid the first time.
The bar in the restaurant is nice, and serves good food and drinks. Although quite expensive for everything. One drawback on nice days is the double thick layers of smoke that get everywhere, with all those folks smoking on the terrace and in front of the door. There was no safe place for a non smoker to sit outside and enjoy the fine weather. With all the doors open, the smoke was also thick inside the bar.
The location of the hotel is very close to the lake. Take the metro to get to the city centre or the cathedral, all very well organised.
If you arrive by train, try to take the metro as well. On busy days this easy 5 minute drive can turn into a half to one hr wait in line, and the meter keep running. Remember nothing comes cheap in Switserland.
