Warm and kind hotel staff.

Very central situated - friendly professional staff - in general a very good impression as experienced before and expected here again from this Swissôtel chain.

Our beds were too soft! If booked through, the double room for 2 persons inkl. breakfast costs CHF 350.- (CHF 60.- for the breakfast payable at the Hotel) whereas if booked direktly, the same thing costs only CHF 305.- (this happens to us last weekend with a friends who booked directly!)

Your staff, in both front desk and restaurant, are especially kind. Breakfast is also very warm and well served.

There are only limited space for storing clothes.

The hotel was under construction. There was a very strong smell of painting on the floor and in the room. The room is OK but not luxury as desribed in the hotel description.

The welcome by the staff and service personnel is outstanding and makes you feel at home right away.

The room temperature was always on the low end of the comfort zone. Eventually the staff installed two small room heaters which improved this situation.

Some of the questions have not been responded since I had not availed of these services. I had requested for a rom with a view but was allocated room with no views - though room itself was good. one suggestion - please provide tube light on the reading table this will assist in better reading without starining eyes.

Located right next to the exhibition center.

Rooms are absolutely not 5 stars, more like 3 stars. Therefore it is absolutely over priced. Not recommendable over all.
