very convenient location close to lake and train/bus station Helpful staff Good breakfast Free tea/coffee
No air condition in the room
Excellent location from train station and not noisy. Family room with separate bathroom and toilet which made it convenient for us. Clean. Great balcony view facing mountain at the back and water in the front.
Staff was wonderful and very helpful. Rooms were very comfortable and quiet, even for three adults. Very accommodating when we requested two rooms near each other. Location to/from train station very convenient. Continental breakfast was nice - loved that coffee was available all day.
The room was comfortable and the location of the hotel is good. We also enjoy the breakfast.
The location, friendliness of the staff ( the ladies at the reception and at the breakfast).
The bed was not so comfortable ( two standard beds side by side).
Excellent location close to lake, station and buses; short walk to lots of cafes & restaurants. Very friendly and helpful staff; bright and cheerful decor. Spacious breakfast area on 2nd floor with some tables along balcony in good weather.
Wi-fi reception was a bit intermittent; better in public areas.
It was really hot, no fan provided. The bed was a lump, the breakfast was day old croissant and it was so noisy on the waterfront I didn't get to sleep until 4 am. The town needs to do something about their drunk teenagers. There were dozens.
The lake view with my balcony doors open, the friendly, helpful staff, the great breakfast and the location on the the water could not be beat!
I only booked 5 days....
Everything It was perfect
Right on the lake with lovely views and excellent amenities
No aircon and very hot Could not open door to rad to allow air as was very noisy
Great location near the station and the lake. Balcony rooms have a wonderful view. Make sure you use the common area lounges etc.
WiFi was very poor, login was complex or failed to come up and it didn't have bandwidth to actually use in the rooms, however the common areas were good for WiFi.
Very nice person at the reception Excellent quiete location Nice and rich breakfast Not super modern, but very neat and clean We will recommend the hotel and come for sure again!
Wi-Fi did not work always regularly only sometimes interruptions
Great position next to lake and close to piazza and station. Good to have access to unlimited coffees and fantastic hot chocolates. Do catch cable car and chairlift to Cimetto - what a view!
Air conditioner didn't work properly; some noise on lakefront during Friday and Saturday evenings, but was quiet after midnight.
Location is fantastic, a very short walk from the railway station and with lovely views over the lake The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome Bed was very comfortable and afforded us a great nights sleep Short walk to the main square Lovely restaurants all around
Could use some clearer directions on how to use the WIFI
Friendly staff Good breakfast
Friendly, helpful staff. Lovely breakfast. Fresh, clean room. Excellently situated. Availability of good bicycles free of charge.
Well, nearly everything! It was our second visit there and we loved it even more than the first time. Wonderfully close situation to the train station with convenient side entrance 1 minute away from the platforms! Very nice and knowledgeable staff. Breakfast Room and breakfast is plentiful and nice, not over the top as in some Swiss hotels. The lake front is opposite the entrance and the lake beckons. e had a room with a partial view from the side, but once you have seen the lake front that is sufficient as there are no further differences to other rooms. I recommend this hotel to all travellers!
One has to get used to the tiled floors but once that's done everything is fine. So, this is not a negative comment, simply a hint that one has to do some adjustments to local traditions.
Friendly helpful staff. They waited late for us as we could arrive until 10.30 pm. Breakfast was great.
Enjoyed my stay, would love to come back.
Switzerland is a bit expensive ....
Very pleasant room (406) with spacious balcony to front and side giving clear views over the lake
Fruit salad at breakfast had too much tinned fruit and too little fresh fruit.
Children room w/o A/C
We like to walk in the mountains and use the trains and lift for transportation. The oppurtunaty of free public beach was nice.
Breakfast was ok, but it could have been better. Restaurant next door was ok, but big portions and poor pizzas.
Nice hotel right beside the lake. Had a top floor room at the front with a lovely balcony overlooking the lake. Liked the tea and coffee freely available. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
