“Modern and professional home away from home.”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

The staff at this perfectly allocated hotel are incredibly friendly. The rooms, though lacking the fancy water view you might get down the street, are more modern, and perfectly comfy and clean with nice balconies. The resto and bar downstairs are popular for non-hotel guests as well because they are that great. The free pass to Aura Vita health club is a wonderful feature. And, as is always important to us, they were very accommodating when it came to our small dogs. Totally recommended for a perfect home base for both business and pleasure.

Room Tip: You most certainly want the mountain view.

This was our second visit to this hotel and compared to 3 years ago, it is even better. The rooms got an upgrade and they really look nice. Excellent beds made us sleep like babies. The suite is also used as a family room, which is not completely what it is. It misses some storage space and a larger bathroom or separate toilet would be great. The coach which serves as an extra bed has a very thin mattress, resulting in a bad night for our doughter. But with just a simple question, this was solved by the hotel staff. They all are very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is easy to reach and plenty of restaurants and shops are around. yet it is very quiet at night.

Room Tip: rooms facing the street have a great view over the lake and surrounding hills.

Rooms very clean and nice. Perfect location. Friendly staff. Had a family suite that was very roomy with nice views! Beds a bit hard, but comfy pillows and nice fluffy comforters! Bathroom could use an upgrade but was very clean ( that's being somewhat picky). Breakfast average

Warm welcome, personnal friendly and helfull. Rooms are pretty large and really clean.
Parking is city underground one and expensive.(20 swiss francs a night!).
Nice view over the lake and old city. Nice bar and lounge, with outside sitting places, large choice of beverages and cool bartender.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony.

Part of the Best Western owner run chain the Speer extends the hearty welcome one expects. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation. Rooms seem uniformly decorated with up to date features and of a decent size. Staff very helpful and a great location opposite the train station and taxi rank. The old town and lake are right on your doorstep. One word of warning, if you are a light sleeper, take earplugs as the church bell chimes frequently!

The hotel was nice enough with breakfast served in the morning. Our room was on the top floor and had a nice balcony with patio furniture. I would have given it five stars, but we were told that there was not any air conditioning in the hotel, but later found that other guests had air conditioning in their rooms. We had a stand alone fan, but it seemed to just move the warm air around. Best thing we could do was keep the doors to the balcony propped open.
