2/10 Poor

Very low quality - ok for young backpakers
Difficult to get to this hotel from the train station, the streets are a maize and frequently unmarked. The hotel is not open until 4:00PM, there are a few lockers to store a suitcase. A carryon size suitcase is the largest that fits and you must have a two-franc coin to access the locker or you'll be toting your luggage all day. Their is an elevator but you need to take the bags up one flight of stairs to get to it! The room is very cramped! No furniture, just a table, so you must "live" out of your suitcase. The bathroom is so small the door huts the toilet so you must close the door to use the bathroom. The sink in the room, not in the bathroom. For a similar price we had far superior hotels throughout Switzerland, many even included breakfast. This place is just a little better than a youth hostel bust much more expensive. The staff are friendly but that does not make up for the many inconveniences.

Narrow steps and old world charm
We arrived late. The directions for the remote entry were confusing. Florian provided great customer service to get us to our room. Breakfast was delightful. The air conditioning unit was welcome. Close to the old town.

I liked everything about our stay there. The only thing was that on the next house there must have been a kind of ventilation unit that ran all night and was quite loud. It was a very hot day and night and we slept with the windows open and it would have been nice if at least from midnight to six the machine would have been quiet.
