Close to the station

I arrived at midnight from a late plane - could not get in the door, and after luckily getting in when another guest arrived (a magician!) it took 10 minutes to figure out how to get my room key - it was like a stupid video game, with a weird phone, codes, tricks and strange operations. In the morning, after paying 150CHF, I also found that there was no breakfast. Not enough a glass of water

It's very close to railway. It's not disturb a lot but in room you can hear some noise. In other ways the hotel is really comfortable
