Deposit 250 CHF for one night stay?
  • Hotel not recommended
  • Friends
  • Business trip
  • September 2013
At the check in a hotel charged a deposit 250 CHF and 132 CHF - the total room price. When we checked out they charged 132 CHF again. I don't understand why they take a deposit because hotel don't have a minibar, room service and restaurant. Good location for transit passengers read hotel review

Fun design and close to the train station

  • April 2013
Loved the bright and modern design. The hotel is situated within another hotel and has the same reception desk, so maybe a bit confusing. And so is the way to the actual rooms, and they don't have an elevator to go to the top floors and the staircase is rather steep. The rooms are small, and funny enough my single room had more free space than my friends' double room. The condition of the hotel is quite good and wifi worked well. The location is good -next to the train station and to the central bus hub, so it's easy ... to get anywhere you want. read hotel review

The city inn is the 'economy version' of the adjoining euler-hotels. The check in is also only over the euler hotel. Wifi is free of charge, in the rooms the upper floors had we however no front desk more. For guests there is a mobility card for free the public transport use. read hotel review

    Great, central location. Right at the train station, the airport bus stops. In the historic part one goes about 5 minutes, directly next to the hotel is a Starbucks, several restaurants are also in the immediate area. Due to the central location in the evening/at night already sometimes according to. No private parking.

    For a short break completely okay. The rooms are very small, also the bathroom; but is everything very modern especially clean. Tv is available, however with rather poor reception, Internet and netzempfang are also rather bad in the rooms.

We had a one night stay in hotel city inn before moving on. It was a perfect stopover destination, very close to the train. Beds were comfortable, very clean modern interior with air con. The hotel held our bags for us the next day while we went shopping. Only negative was the breakfast was expensive so we didn't get it, but this is probably standard for switzerland. read hotel review
