The Pestalozzi was a great find. Parking was easy. We got one of their spaces right in front of the hotel. (They only have a few, but if you don't get one of them they have an arrangement with a parking structure very nearby.) The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. There was an elevator, so pretty easy to get our luggage up. (We did have to take our luggage down a few steps to get to our room, but I think that was just for a few of the rooms on the first floor.) The room ... was large and very clean. It had a really big bathroom with a tub. The only negative to the room was that there was no air conditioning, which might be a problem due to noise in the courtyard. However, the location near the center and the affordable price made up for the lack of A/C. The restaurant had a nice selection of dishes that were very good for dinner and breakfast, which was included in the price, was quite good. Our only suggestion for the restaurant would be to dim the lights a little in the evening. read hotel review

Very friendly and wonderfully helpful staff. I made a special request for a hair dryer and found one already waiting in my room on arrival. I had a simple, single room on the first floor on the courtyard side - i requested a quiet room and this one was perfect - i had a great night's sleep. The furnishings were basic but I had everything i needed - TV, good wifi access (ask at reception for the code), desk, comfortable bed and bed linen. The bathroom down the hall was impeccably clean and there was no queue. The hotel's online ... photos of the room were accurate - no nasty surprises. I was very pleasantly surprised when the hotel opened the kitchen specially for me when I came back after 10 pm and served me a hot meal. Front desk was very helpful with travel and tourist information. This is a hotel that is comfortable for solo women travellers as well as for business travellers. There is no alcohol for historical reasons in the restaurant but there are plenty of bars nearby. It is great value for money and I would definitely stay there again. read hotel review

Our suitecase numer lock was out of order and we are so lucky to have their staff helping us to unlock it, he did a great job to open it without broken the pull tab so we don’t need to buy a new suitecase. Eventhough he cannot speak English, but we do communicate well. Thank you so much! read hotel review

The hotel was of a usual standard for Swiss hotels, in the fact that it was in an old building and therefore the furnishings were quite dated. However the cleanliness, location, customer service and breakfast were excellent. read hotel review

It was very nice to stay at your hotel. Previosuly I used to stay in an other hotel which is near to the railway station. Compared to that one I enjoyed now that I am in the city centre, tmoreover he Park Ciani and the beach were very close to me. read hotel review
