Amazing views and accomodation
This was the best hotel we stayed at on our Switzerland vacation! The lady at the front desk was very accommodating. I am pretty sure she upgraded us. Our room had a large, amazing balcony with a beautiful view of the river. There was even a BBQ so we could cook our own food at night which really comes in handy since Switzerland is so expensive. LOVED this hotel! I highly recommend it!

Overrated
Front desk folks are nice as others have mentioned in their reviews. Location is great!! Now the bad parts-- No AC...hotels.com forgot to mention this. Extra city tax - Hotels.com should have included this. WiFi sucks...rate should be much cheaper because of this. I'll most like get a different hotel with AC in the room next time. Will also most likely use some site other than hotel.com
