Nearby Central train station

Annoying 2 class breakfast: For additional 10 CHF the breakfast could be upgraded to get eggs or ham. Otherwise only butter, marmelade or yoghurt available.

Will come here again. Convenient, excellent service, and nice comfortable rooms. Air conditioning available and very well insulated from the street noice.

Beds were a little stiff.

I have no idea how they got 4 stars. If it would be a 2 star hotel, it would be good. As a 3 star hotel is would be average. As a 4 star hotel it is unacceptable.
