    Comfortable hotel in centre of town

    Hotel was fine, rooms were compact but apart from that nothing to really complain about. Although quiet given its location, it does mean that the curtains and windows need to be shut at night.

    Comfortable hotel in the centre of town, quiet at night despite being opposite the train station. Good breakfast included in price. Nice restaurant downstairs. Friendly and helpful staff

Rooms are spacious, great bathroom with lot of hygiene supplies, everything clean, good Wi-Fi, breakfast with lot of choices for everyone, very polite staff ready to help and explain.

    The hotel is located on a VERY busy thoroughfare in Rapperswil so traffic noise is incessant. Due to the noise, it was hard to keep the windows open or enjoy the small terrace provided with the room.

    The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel appears to be targeted to business travelers... parking is available at a public garage about a block away so there is no luggage drop-off point in front of the hotel.
