                  Great staff. Room was a little small and dark but I enjoyed my stay.

                • Group of friends

                  The location is perfect; just by the metro station and a lovely walk into the centre. Our room had a great view of the beautiful cathedral too.

                  There was a smell of old cigarette smoke in the room, but i imagine this will get less and less as i think now all the rooms are non-smoking.

                  Excellent location, close to train station, metro and shopping area. You can take the train to montreux and be on the mountains. They had me use the Internet for free

                  the view form the room was great! Location excellent! Staff were friendly!

                  It was ok for the purpose of the trip.

                  I was given a transport hote guest card valid for metro, buses and trains (nearby zones). It was very nice to save time and money

                  doing the booking at your website I mentioned, that I would like to have a lake view room. The room was different

                • Family with children

                  Great central location. Seemed to be good value compared to alternatives. Triple with three single beds was good for our family.

                  Breakfast felt heavily 'policed' - we didn't intend to eat more than our bread and jam for 10 CHF! I prefer a thicker pillow, or two.

                  Excellent location, right next to metro station and shops, and within easy reach of cathedral and other sights

                  Breakfast itself did not live up to the glass-roofed dining area with superb view of city

                  Great location

                  Totally over priced for what it is, could do some major reforms inside..

                  Extremely noisy. No air conditioning in the room, so in order not to suffer from heat exhaustion, one needs to sleep with open windows

                  Metro as well as bus station are outside of the hotel's door. City center is within walking distance.

                  I didn't like the hotel charges which were very different depending on the day, and sometimes unexpectedly high from one day to another.

                  Clean and good quality but the price was way out of its league.

                  It's too expensive compared with the quality of the services provided and quite dirty.

                  The bed was the only thing, this room 402. Is in serious need of modernisatiioon. The shower leaks eveerywhere and looked like it had never been descaled, the head was wrong for the bracket so had to se flannel to steady it. Worth 70chf not 300. Very disapointed

                  Old fashioned boring room, no pictures, musty smell, shower needed replacuin or repairing. There was a long black hair in the bed so not sure who that belonged to.. No bar. Breakfast was too expensive and so were items from the mini bar, the hotel staff were smoking in a room where it looked like food was kept or prepared. They weren't all very polite. The girl when I arrived was nice but the others not so much. I won't stay here again. T

                  The lady at the reception was extremely kind and professional. She provided excellent information.

                  The price of the hotel was much too high. It is a real scandal to ask such a high price for a Class *** hotel (my rate) !!!

                  The kindness and efficiency of the hotel staff, the spacious room that looks out on the city (splendid view).
