    Very central, super clean rooms, has all you require, bed was very comfortable! Breakfast was great and all of that for a super price! Will stay there again in future. We had 3 single rooms for one night and did mountain bike tours from Solothurn. Super trails!

    Poor wifi connection (at least in the attic room); no parking (but if you arrive after 7pm, you can use the public parking for free until 7am); no minibar (would have been good to store our water and other stuff that needed to be in the cold)

    Good breakfast; nice location (lovely little town); air conditioning (definitely a plus since it was hot outside during the day and we our room was in the attic

    - Room on top floors next to the elevator not ideal if you are sensitive to noise (you hear the elevator enginge quite well) - No toothbrush in the room or available at the reception (was used to having this provided from other business hotels unfortunately)

    - Very near the train station (Solothurn is very small though, does not rally matter where your hotel is) - Friendly staff and check in - Quiet street - Breakfast OK

    Walter (the owner) and his staff were so nice to me. They treated me like family. The last day of my stay, knowing that I was checking out before breakfast was served; they offered to fix me a couple of sandwiches. They did not only that, but also; they fix me a bag with fruit, yogurt and water. Only my mom did that when I was young. I highly recommend this hotel. The hotel is clean, cozy and 2 blocks away from the center of town. If I come back to Solothurn, I'll stay here again.

    We were warned that the room (in a converted attic) would be hot. A large fan was provided but was totally ineffective. There is no direct access to the top floor by lift. At other Swiss hotels I have been given a free pass for public transport but this was not offered here. Also, the manager seemed to know nothing about public transport in the area. Because of a problem negotiating bridges, I wanted information about a bus across the river to the old town. The manager could only suggest a taxi and said that public transport would be expensive. However, I discovered that several buses ran regularly from a stop close to the hotel across to the old town at a cost of a few Euro.
