Location, Bus/Tram stop, Super market etc. just across the road.

Very small and uncomfortable room. Very warm with no air conditioning. If you open the windows you could hear the traffic noise. Even there were bugs in the room. When reported to the staff they did not believe so I had to take photos of the bugs to show them.

no air conditioning and the temperatures were in the 90's F. There was no indication of that in their adverts.

Charges for wifi which is a bit mad. Also when i stumped up and paid ten francs for it it was really slow and terrible. It's pretty unsophisticated but it'll do the job if you're travelling on a tight budget to an expensive city

Resonable rate, clean, enough square meters per person, good TV.

Noisy, double bed bed with sizes which are not enough for two europeans.

The room was small but sufficient for a place to sleep. The street noises were loud with the window open to stay cool.But ear plugs and eye mask helped. We felt safe. The staff and other clients were friendly and helpful. There was an in room bathroom.

20 CHF for breakfast we did not except the offer
