            The rooms were recently refurbished and a nice large shower in the bathroom with good hot water. When I had forgotten an umbrella the staff leant me one very quickly for my stay. Nice touch!

            It was noisy. The doors seemed to rattle every time someone along the corridor closed their door. I had asked for a quiet room but did not have one night of uninterrupted sleep in five nights.

            7.8

            At least, free Internet in a Swiss hotel. The hotel staff was very good. It is just 8 meters from the gare metro station, what makes it the most convenient place in the town if you are there for businnes. Individual air conditioning for the room is also good (heat and cold at your wish). Many tv channels. Just in front of the Gare. The room was small but practical.

            As almost every hotel now, it has low illumination, what is a problem when you are checking if for missing things. At night, it can happen that you have to your card to enter the hotel, but the card reader is not clearly indicated. Films are to expensive at tv (25 chf). Just one pillow in the room.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Good location - convenient to main train station. Metro light rail station was next door to station (the travel card for visitors to city is a great idea). Traffic noise was minimal. Staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Room was a good size with mini bar fridge. Continental buffet breakfast was well supplied and good variety.

            Price of mini bar refreshments were very expensive. Bathroom was a good size, but space was not used efficiently. Lacked shelf space, and towel railings.

          • Single
            9.6

            This hotel is very well-run and staffed, clean and comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is that the restaurant, the Olympia Grill, would begin serving at least an hour earlier (they now begin at 7:30 P.M.) and be open more hours ar lunch time.
