Pretty good hotel especially for 2-stars May 11, 2011
I was impressed from when I walked in. The location, while a brief walk from the train station, is good and convenient to Old Town. The hotel radiates warmth and newness that I did not find in my other lower-priced Swiss hotels. It reminded me of a Holiday Inn Express in the US; not a lot of frills, stuffy service, or dozens of people running around, but compact, colorful, and friendly. I was surpised it is only rated 2-stars; in the US, I would think it would be 3-stars, and maybe even 3-1/2 if they had more than one person at the front desk.

The room was quite nice. Decent sized, with a nice, comfy bed, attractive bed linens (although a bit warm), and a nice room layout. The bathroom was equally nice. It did feature the typical budget European soap/body wash/shampoo, so bring your own shampoo if you're finicky.

The staff didn't know a lot about traveling nearby, or at least didn't understand my English pronounciations. They did recommend a few sights in Old Town, however, and directed me to a nearby Coop store to get a few cheap grocery items.

Wifi is free in the lobby and it's pretty efficient. The lobby is comfortable and attractive. I didn't have breakfast because it's not included and seemed expensive. But it looked like a better breakfast than the day-old croissant and yogurt routine I had at other hotels.

I had one run-in with a staff member, which was resolved. Overall, service isn't phenomenal, but is passable and the hotel is really nice and new. It was a bit hard to find the hotel initially, not because it is inconveniently located, but because it is a ways from the train station and a close-up map didn't help. After getting directions, it was a snap (although a bit of huff and puff).
