        Individual guest reviews

        • Group of friends

          Good quality breakfast

          The female receptionist was very unprofessional with me and other guests. We were not informed about the free public transportation for visitors. The room was facing the train station, noise was unbearable.

        • Group of friends

          Central location; accessibility; clean rooms; overall the experience was fine.

          Staff was quite slow in responding and giving room; smaller rooms than expected; very tiny bathroom

          Excellent breakfast, excellent free access to internet, brilliant location, the hotel had lots of character.

        • Single

          Very nice breakfast, the hotel is clean, and being maintained well.

          The rooms are tiny and can be a bit noisy if your room is on the back of the hotel, facing the train station.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          Location and breakfast good.

          When we were assigned to the first room, two workers were painting the walls of the corridor outside our room, noisy and making it difficult for us to pass through. However the room was reassigned on our request.

          a bit a smell in the room

          Very convenient location for access to the train station. Laundry mat across the street. Renovations going on so a little messy in the common areas. Good breakfast.

          Carpet was a little gross and the bathroom light was burnt out. Very dated decor but again, they were renovating. Nothing special but very satisfactory.

          Ideal location for station and metro. breakfast well presented.

          Bedroom and bathroom fairly cramped. lots of noise at night, not sure if this was from inside or out in the street.

          • Average rating
        • Single

          Walking distance from the station (but you have to ask directions, it's not obvious).

          Front door locked at 10pm - not sure how late checkin works.

        • Family with children

          Good breakfast, nice, though little room.

          Common bathroom on floor. was expected, but the WC / shower was much less welcoming than the room itself. Prices were Swiss... Meaning unresonable.

          • Average rating
        • Single

          Location was excellent. Train station was close-by, but was not bothered by trains. Room was relatively small, but efficient. Perfect for staying if sightseeing, making city trips. Breakfast was excellent too. Staff very friendly and helpful.

          Outside door closes at 10:30 pm and there is no staff after that time. Not a problem if you have your key. But something to keep in mind and check with hotel if planning very late arrival.

          The hotel was right beside the train station so very easy to find. The room was extremely clean an the staff was helpful.

          the pillows on the bed were very flat.

          The hotel is too close to the train station. The noise is unbearable, you can even hear the train announcements.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          The hotel is adjacent to the trainstation which made it very convenient. The breakfast was very good. The room (and hotel) was spotless.

          The bathroom/toilet was very squishy. The receptionist at the time of our arrival could not offer any suggestions for dining.

          Location, location, location! It's very close to the train station, yet very quiet. The free metro pass was nice to go to the lake/downtown. Good breakfast. Room/bathroom were very clean and fairly spacious. Had a fan in the room, which helped with the summer heat.

          The staff were NOT helpful/ friendly. It was like you were inconveniencing them to check in, ask for a wake-up call, etc. Otherwise, no complaints!
