Latest Review

" Had a comfortable stay and got the bed that I need because of a back injury. Most Facilities are functioning very well except the wifi connection which needs to improve more. I get connected but slow. Staff were friendly both in checking in and out process. Near to the tram station (Tellstrasse) and you can easily reach the city center in minutes. "
