I booked 2 rooms in this hostel during the winter season (December).
First impression was not very good: you have to check in at the plaza in the other side of the road, which is... strange to say the least.
However, the rest was very good. We booked this hotel for 120chf average for each room, and it was a real bargain.
One room for 2 people + 1 baby, was located on the first floor, and was magnificent. HUGE room, well maintained, great bathroom, a real deal!
The second room, booked for 1 person, was not that great, though still decent. Much smaller (in line with switzerland standards), not that beautiful, though clean and functional.
Breakfast is served in the plaza on the other side of the road, and, as usual in this kind of hotel, is way too expensive (40 chf for a breakfast come on... that's what I would pay for a dinner in Geneva...) A good tip is to take a "cafe croissant" in the bar on the top, where you can enjoy the outstanding view, while being charged 5-10chf...
You have access to the spa and swimming pool of the plaza, which is a real plus.
The hotel has an amazing location, which makes for most of its value. Situated right next to the lake, at walking distance from the center.
All in all, the hotel would not deserve 4 stars, though the price we paid is not 4 stars neither... Despite some inconveniences, I would definitely come back to this hotel thanks to its location, and to the condition of having ~130chf price range per night.
