I have stayed at the Astra Hotel many times in the past ten years. It is a reliably comfortable hotel, ideally situated right next to the main railway station and in easy walking distance of the village and the lake. Many of the customers are business visitors to the Nestle head office so you are likely to hear many languages spoken at the breakfast table. Speaking of breakfast do not miss the great pastries and especially the fresh brioche. In the evening try their daily special in the restaurant. The rooms at the Astra look a little tired but they are clean and comfortable and the service si always efficient, friendly and polite. It is evrything I look for in a business hotel and considerably better value than some of the more touristic lakeside oferings.
