One to remember.
Great stay in quiet area of central Paris. Bernard was a great host and room was just right. Nearby restaurants and walks along the Siene made for a great 24 hours.

Cool riverfront hotel with buzz-y energy - love
I'm a New Yorker in my early thirties who likes hotels like the Ace, the Standard, etc.--I like.a scene at a hotel (often when traveling in Europe it can be sort of lonely and dead-energy in the hotels). I've stayed at this hotel twice this summer and it's so nice and not overpriced (from a foreigners' perspective -- you know what I mean) unlike many things in gorgeous Switzerland. Modern and cool -- the scene outside at the cafe feels like home to me. It's right on the river and very easy to get to. I am a writer and could honestly live at this hotel and write. it's got great energy. also the bars across the street are always hopping as well. Def reccomend.

Comfortable plus.
This hotel is located on the river with a great location outside to sit and have a beer. The prices are a little high but that seems to be true of all of Switzerland
