Fodor's Review

Pay close attention to the walls in this boutique gem, they're furnished entirely with Belle Epoque originals: Steinlen graces the bathrooms and breakfast area, Hodler and Klimt spice up suites named for them, and the bar has photos of Toulouse-Lautrec standing next to the Moulin Rouge poster behind you. Windows are triple-glazed for quietness, bathrooms have vanities, and closets disguised as traveling trunks hide televisions. Renovations in 2012 included new beds and

televisions.

Never take this hotel

The rooms are dirty, and they change beds every third day. The expiry date in the bar more then 2 month ago. The waitress did not give a smile. The food from the kitchen is cold and not delicious. Just the men and woman on the Front Desk are friendly and they do what they can to make the stay a little better.

New Proprietor in 2003, No Drop in Rating

I just re-read the previous ratings and can happily say our experience in October 2003 reflected a consistency which is rarely found over years. The owner/proprietor (new in 2003)himself showed us to our room. He had given us a break on the weekend rate when we booked via internet. I don't know whether it was the four-night stay, the late-season date or a combination of factors, but he offered the weekday rate for all four days. And when he heard

it was our 25th wedding anniversary, he sent a very nice split of champagne to our room. Geez! We never wanted to leave. The rest of the staff were very helpful and more friendly than we generally found in Switzerland. We were even able to use the hotel computer to check e-mail at no charge. About all they didn't do was brush our teeth for us.
