Nice Hotel, No A/C
Hotel was in a great location on the Rhine with pricy restaurants and bars all around. Lots of shopping nearby. We did not realize when booking that the room did not have air conditioning, which made it very uncomfortable in the August heat. Will stay again when outdoor tempatures are cooler.

Some Downsites
The bed was ok but they use a protection + bedcover which let me start sweating Breakfast was ok bud too expensive and not enough choice (yes I know Switzerland is expensive). The quality was good. Also the room couldn´t be completely darkened. Depending on which side of the building you are, you have either a calm part, a side with Tram´s or the side with the nightlife but nice view on the rhine
