  • 4.0.Fair

    No free parking for our car

    Hotel advertised free parking, but they only have 6 spaces for over 50 rooms. We had to pay 25 swiss francs to park in an offsite public parking lot. Room was dingy and no air condition. We had to leave the window open and on the second night we had 2 bees in our room.

    The owners and staff of this special gem are the ones who tip the scale in terms of service. Outstanding in every way, lost keys, laundry, superb breakfast room and multilingual engagement. My room was very comfortable with crisp sheets extra hangars, modern bathroom and great ac. I look forward to returning.
