6/10 Good

Good hotel, but slow wifi
Location was good. Nice quiet street, but close to the old town and the train station. Front desk service was very nice and helpful. However, this was a business trip and the wifi in my room was terrible- slow and intermittent. It was good in the lobby.

Stopover stay
Used this hotel as a stop over on our way to Switzerland. Hotel is near the town centre which you need to get an evening meal. Breakfast was !2 Euros each extra and was very fresh but not a huge choice. Very clean, friendly staff. Room was quite small but bathroom was lovely.
