Despite not being near the main town or the train station, the metro and bus were frequent and easy to take. The place is quite large so be prepared for school groups - when that happens the washrooms can get a little crowded. No kitchens but breakfast is good and dining room excellent. Rooms are spacious but quite dark, and there are no lockers despite the rooms being so spacious. They only have bank-style safety deposit boxes at the front desk. Otherwise a pleasant stay.


The staff were helpful but not friendly, it was a little overpriced but then I guess that's Switzerland.
