We have stayed in this hotel many many times over the years. The staff is absolutely the best in the world. That being said, the hotel is tired, very tired.
Here is what the hotel used to be - very polished - brass, furniture, curtains, marble etc. All the things you would expect from a 5* Swiss hotel. The restaurant and bar were bustling at night and now you are lucky if the restaurant is even open in the evening.
Now they only polish the brass hand rails, the furniture and coverings are old, faded and torn - not in a charming way, The awnings that come out in the afternoon to protect from the sun are covered in black soot. The carpets on the stairs, hallways and rooms are worn to the point of being frayed and threadbare in places. The breakfast room has seen better days. In the rooms (which are a great size) the furniture has dings and needs replacing or at least refinishing and the beds are hard as a rock. The bathrooms are very well appointed. Nothing bad there!
This used to be a happening place. They do have a cute rooftop bar that is great for sunsets but it is difficult to get to and very small.
I am sure we will continue to stay here as I said before the staff is the absolute best!!
