Walking distance to the city center and since I booked a room with balcony overlooking the Reuss River, it is nice to sit there and people watch. Just hot though since no AC but a fan was provided. Small TV with no english channels, no coffee/tea pot and no fridge in the room. The breakfast is a/ok and curve parking is only 15 CHF per day.

The hotel was well priced. The staff was wonderful and very helpful in giving us sightseeing ideas. The breakfast was excellent! We would definitely stay here again. The only suggestion would be to have a screen on at least 1 window. We were very pleased.
