8/10 Very Good

Room is older than what it appears in the photos. Generally clean but shower condition is fair. Water didn’t drain fast enough. Good location but I think the price is still high for the room standard. Service is good though.

I can call this hotel a mystery hotel. When the taxi drops off at the hotel your first feeling is that you are in an isolated place. But when you leave the hotel turning left you yourself in the center of the shopping area. And I really loved my room and its balcony.

This is a good hotel near the station. It’s down hill to the town and lake and there is a funicular to get you back up the hill again. Rooms clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.

Wonderful place to stay. Service-oriented, friendly and helpful staff, good location, lovely views, yet super-close to the train station. Great food in their restaurant too. I'll definitely choose it again.
