An Amazing location, a beautifully restored hotel with a breathtaking view.
However for all of that this hotel like Zurich left me cold. Staff were efficient but not personable, there was no energy to speak of in fact when I walked into the new section to get to the gym it felt like a newly built hospital. I yearned for some music, noise, atmosphere - heart.
When we arrived I was told I had booked a single room. On the website where I booked it just said a double room and I have never stayed at a hotel where a single charge was an option. Anyway the price doubled pretty swiftly.
The room itself was modern, the bed was particularly good and we managed 14hours of blissful sleep after horrendous jet lag.
It is a good 20 minutes from Zurich and while there are shuttle buses they do stop early in the night.
I would not recommend this hotel because despite the beauty of the surroundings it just had no heart or soul.
