The convenience of its location close to the railway station & shopping centre, - we were using public transport, and only staying one night. The hotel was generally rather shabby & "worse for wear" - in need of refurbishment. Fortunately the Irish Pub next door was quiet - make sure you get a room on the opposite side, overlooking the river.
Great location - next to Fribourg Centre, train station, city center and old town. Great breakfast. Good/friendly staff to help you. The room was small and space was limited (what do you expect though in EU)
we are satisfied with every thing of the hotel, especially the splendid breakfast.
No temperature control for the room heating
Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean. breakfast was good. Hotel is located next to one nightclub and above another. noise wasn't too bad but may cause problems for light sleepers. Parking was secure but the card system had problems when we stayed meaning that we couldn't get out and missed a pre-arranged event. Paying to park at a hotel I feel is inappropriate and designed to wring as much money out of you as possible. At least they could hide it in amongst the room charge if they need the money that badly.
A bit old furniture, expensive wifi (!), paid parking (if you are lucky and park in front of the hotel then 10 CHF per day but if not, you have to park in a double expensive public parking in the underground garage.
Location is right next to the old town. Staff is friendly and helpful. Room was large and with a great view from the top floor. We asked for and were given a quiet room. The restaurant is closed on weekends, as are most in the town.
Lack of air conditioning is unacceptable
Very close to the centre of town and train station which was a plus
Good breakfast as for the simple buffet. Good place in city center. Smell in our room was not so nice. As we stayed on Fri night, it was quite noisy outside around 4am when the clubs closed.
Nice location, great staff and nice rooms. Not enough Parkingplace
This is a reasonably priced hotel with welcoming and helpful staff. They offer an excellent breakfast and comfortable rooms. We would certainly consider staying here again. Unfortunately the hotel frontage is on the main thoroughfare for traffic passing through the town. Traffic noise at night is a bit of the problem.
The hotel is directly opposite the cathedral, who's clock chimes every quarter of an hour all through the night. Even with the windows closed, there was enough noise to keep me awake until 4:30 am
Breakfast was very good, with a nice selection of cheeses, hams and fruits. Room service was very helpful.
Good value for a comfortable, clean hotel in the old town - easy to get to from the station (either 5 minutes by bus or a 10 minute walk). Fribourg is a good central location for exploring western Switzerland, being only 20 mins. from Bern and 40 mins. from Lausanne by train. Really clean, with comfortable beds, excellent sound-proofing (I heard nothing from other rooms) and really friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast also very good. A minor issue: no air con in the rooms - this did not affect me but might be an issue for some people in the summer.
The Hotel Staff were very nice and the room I had was excellent, in both cleanliness and facilities. I experienced no problems with parking (public parkings available) and enjoyed the fact to do so for only 10 chf per day (tickets available at reception). All in all a very positive experience. Definitely recommendable.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Information regarding restaurant and room service unclear, would have liked to use both but never discovered if open/available. Front bedrooms noisy due to traffic.
location to noisy because of the night club located just outside of our window.Didn,t get much sleep.
Was not warned that hotel was a building site
Lakeside position, Reception staff, general ambience Reception although given assurance that due to my late arrival the kitchen would be able to supply something to eat, this was countermanded by the extremely abrupt Head Waiter. The extraordinary arrangment was made on my behalf by the excellent Receptioist but I was assured by the head waiter he was the controller of the kitchen and not the chef de cuisine!
The hotel is very elegant and very well located at the seaside of Neuchatel. The rooms with view on the lake are great. No.
Very little - it is being renovated. The location is convenient for the town centre. The room had just been decorated smelled heavily of paint, the A/C had been removed, in August! The corridors were hung with bare wires and light bulbs. The wires almost blocked the corridor, a fire hazard. The stairs were blocked because of painting, fire hazard! Workmen's tools were left in the corridor. The building was covered in scaffolding incl. outside the window - security hazard. The staff said sorry - so what?
The reception staff were all attentive and helpful and spoke good English. The design was pleasing and interesting. The lakeside view from our room was lovely. In retrospect, I think it ought to have been pointed out that our booking was inclusive of breakfast.
Location. Memories. Very helpful at front desk.- gave us an upgrade when they couldn't find our reservation Arrived to find no reservation tho we had a Booking.com confirmation and we were not pleased. Hotel did respond well.
Liked its good location No gym. One of the reasons why I booked. Breakfast was very poor. No fruit apart from kiwifruit. Not appealing. Room was suppose to be a superior room that could sleep 4. I think you would have to be childen or dwarves. There was no room
The hotel staff was helpful and friendly, my room was clean and comfortable and the location was close to the train station and the city center of Nuechatel.
The location was excellent. The staff very friendly and the room very comfortable. The breakfast was huge and varied, and the weekend offer made the place very affordable.
Everything we had nothing to complain about
Unique design and room facilities, wonderful lake side location, the only suite hotel above water in Europe, superb food and wines, an experience not to be missed Some aging wooden planks along the access to the lake side suites do no longer match the luxury resort.
The style and layout of the rooms is first class,add to that real privacy and the feeling of sitting on the lake/water Unfortunately it is a disease that Hotels insist on execcive charges for mini bar (standard items) and the price for a continental breakfast. We regularly stay at another 5 star hotel in Switzerland where the mini bar & breakfast are all part of accom which is overall less that the Palafitte.
Very relaxing, felt as though we were on holiday somewhere exotic even though we were within a stone's throw from Neuchatel, the restaurant was excellent as was the service, the facilities provided in the room were of a very high standard and they had thought of everything. We actually asked to upgrade to a Lake Pavillion room once we were there. The heating system was on full and could not be turned off -- the only comfortable way to sleep was to have the main window wide open all night. It was also too expensive -- only affordable on the basis that this was a one-off and we would not go back due to the cost.
the wonderfull setting off the small appartments on the water, the nice service and attention also for us as a family
Great location on the lake with decks right out over the lake There was not much choice for food in the area
Service, staff and clenliness were excellent. The room could have been a little cooler.
Nice staff Great site Romantic room design One of the most beautiful hotels in the Europe
Room facilities and view
the friendliness off the staff NA
hotel position good on lake room was in poor decorative state + dirty, we have stayed there is much nicer rooms at the same price
great location, right in the centre of downtown, very clean and very polite staff
I liked the location , the excellent food in the restaurant, the terrace, the bar, especially Mr. Stefan from the bar, and the parking Relative poor breakfast for 60 CHF, unpolite receptionist.
The staff are very helpful and polite. Location is of course excellent. No pool. Room very dark, furniture old and dark. No relaxing sitting/lounge area apart from bar.
Beautiful views and correct staff. Situated in the center of Neuchatel, this is really a high standing hotel, with a reasonable price for a five star. Breakfast though was not included on the rate.
Nothing,i everything except the view was bad. It has poor services,the staff is not responsive,you have to wait 30 minutes in front of the reception because one guy is drinking his coffee and another is a newbie and does not know how to serve the clients. Only the position of the hotel is nice,the services are bad and the smoking rooms have a very strange smell.They are cleaned but not odorized.
I asked for a room with a balcony, knowing that there were not many of this type. I therefore telephoned in advance to ask and was told the room had a small balcony. Imagine my surprise that we were given a second floor room with a beautiful balcony, overlooking the lake. For a five star hotel I was rather disappointed with the service at breakfast. The used plates were left far too long on the tables.
The general look and feel, which is very elegant and relaxing, classical, yet not dusty. The location as well of course. The windows in the room were a bit small, that's all!
Good welcome and professional staff at the reception. The hotel as infrastructure is nice, welcome and reception are good. The breakfast is nice (as quality of the food) The waiting staff did not seem happy to work in the hotel. It seemed to be attended by students working only to finance their studies. Exception made for a waitress who was smiling.
Very close to the small city center, convenient free parking, complimentary internet in the lobby, nice bar Breakfast was not as good as expected
Very close to the old city and center of the town the service is good and the personal really nice.
far too expensive, small room with poor equipment. Some of them remember second world war.
place of hotel situated against the city, and restaurant/ bar with the hotel the bed was a bit small, and pillow to soft.
The services and the restaurant(breakfast and bar) were excellent. It was situated at a good stating point for excursions in the city no
The lounge and breakfast were really good. Bed and Bad Room very small. Internet connection didn't work.
The hotel is located close to a medieval village. It's like an outdoor museum, 15th century buildings and walls from the 12th century, and the Castle at the end that is from the 13th century, with flower boxes everywhere.
New facility, clean, basic. Good for those who want to visit the area at a low cost for accommodation. Restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent. Location is perfect for city center and lake.
pleasing contemporary design and helpful staff
rstaurant service was not so friendly
The hotel is situated from one side, close to beutiful lake, from other side is easy to go to from the railway station (funicular line station is about 60 m). The hotel has a good style of design. The reception hall is not large enough. But for the 3 stars hotel it's good.
It was a short walk from the funicular that takes you to the train station. The buffet breakfast was included in the room rate and it was very good.
My room was available much before the published check in time. All areas of the hotel are clean and tidy. Room looked newly renovated. The hotel is modern in apperance. Breakfast is basic but plentiful
My room on the top floor was spacious and quiet, with lovely views from the dormer windows of mountains and sea. The staff was pleasant and friendly, the atmosphere was comfortably low-key, and the location was convenient to the town centre (on foot or by tram) but far enough away to avoid the noise. Unfortunately, I arrived during an unusual heat wave, and even with a rotating floor fan running non-stop, the un-air-conditioned space was so stultifyingly hot that it was all but unbearable, even at night ... especially as a sign tacked to the window advised against opening it with the lights on because of mosquitoes. The room had few amenities and no safe. The bathroom sink also was very slow to drain and needed unclogging.
Large, clean rooms. Good breakfast. Cool vibe.
Close to town centre and lake
The hotel was located very close to lake neuchatel in a quieter part is town a few minutes walk from the centre Like the rest of the area the price was high for what you got compared to UK prices
Friendly staff. I had a problem with a noise in the bathroom, and I could directly change rooms.
Good location (the lake, the funicular are two minutes walking), good taste design.
Large room. Excellent location. It was advertised as having wiFi. But we did not know that we needed a code . When we got back to our room at 10 PM, the front desk was not staffed.
Hotel was very good for the price we paid. Only our room was located at the front side on the first floor. We had a lot of noice from the street. It was not possible to sleep with the window open.
Everything is quite comfortable, very calm, clean, the parking place is close to the hotel.
Good location. A bit noisy from the street.
location, cleaniness, frinedly staff (though they could only communicate in French)
location is good, room is good the oven and stove is not working, and there isn't any utensils other than a kettle and 2 cups and saucer and teaspoon
Very centrally located. Nice and clean. Rooms on the (pedestrian) street may be a bit noisy in the evening if Fribourg wins a sport match!
nice and clean rooms there was no cot bed available
The kitchenette appliances were good. The room had a lot storage space. The location was good, not too far from the rail station. The staff were friendly but spoke only French, so communication was not easy. The kitchenette had no utensils, so the good appliances were almost useless. Cleaning was not done all days.
The location in the center of Fribourg is very nice. The reception was friendly. A hotel with a disco downstairs is not the ideal combination, certainly not on a Friday evening. There is a lot of noise from downstairs and from the street.
I was with my male colleague and we share the room, but the beds where together (It was a double bed). so its good to put an option on the website to chose which kind of room we want, double room with separate beds or double room with big bed (2 bed together).
Nice, modern, clean hotel. Rooms are quiet despite being at a highway rest stop. Good breakfast (not included). Elevator (good for luggage). Air Conditioning provides the only ventilation (windows do not open).
excellent facilities in terms of shopping, adjacent to small mall. paying for internet connection. should be complimentary
A good location at Autoroute and convenient for a one nite stopover, but not more..... soap container in shower was empty, the electric lever for one bed did not work.
The room was comfortable and whilst it was on the Austrade the noise from the traffic could not be heard. The book in procedure took 30 minutes and their was only three people waiting> the internet services with swiss com did not work ringing the hotline was of no assistance. Staff of the Hotel assisted with the login procedure as the McDonalds Restaraunt Hotspot kept taking over. Spoke to the manager in morning and she listened but was a not offering any assistance.
Most the location from the hotel, the flexible times in the restaurants and shops and the comfort of the bed
no refrigerator, no beer, no smoking areas, no balcony.
well sized room, clean, good quality bed it is a "highway" hotel
It was vey conveniently located next to the railway station so no need to use a car. Staff were friendly and helpful Decor seemed a bit old in the room, though this was not really a big problem
Location in Neuchatel is excellent with perfect views of the lake. Very convenient to the train station. Staff extremely helpful and polite The room was extremely small. Not that I really needed more space, I guess I was just surprised when I entered and the room had a tiny single bed in a room only slightly wider. It turned out to be ok and very comfortable.. just not what I expected especially for the price. It definitely was not a double room as booked!
Very kind and helpful restaurant staff. I was twenty four hours in this hotel, and the same litter I saw in the hallways on my arrival was still there when I checked out. Scruffy looking kitchen and cleaning staff smoking outside the hotel, did nothing to add to the ambiance. The room was tatty and needed renovation. Terrible bedside lights that flood the entire room with glaring light. Old worn-out mattresses made for a very uncomfortable night. Nice staff overall, but with all the many problems, I would not stay again at this very overpriced and poorly managed hotel.
the kindness of the personnel
Location next to the railway station - easy access. Cleanness and friendliness
Nice ambience, polite & eager to help staff with English, German, French language knowledge, cozy rooms, quiet rooms with a view in the garden. Free Wireless internet in rooms/reception/cafeteria was also a good feature. Everything went smoothly during our stay (3 nights).
Welcoming and friendly staff. Room clean, good continental breakfast. Hotel few minutes walk from the town and Lake.
The bed was good and comfortable
The size of the room and the decor. Very quiet.
A great hotel in the old town of Neuchatel. Lovely friendly and helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. Rooms were nicely designed, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. The buffet continental breakfast was nice, plentiful and pretty reasonable. With the hotel just as short walk into town and from there the lake, I would stay here again or recommend it to friends.
It was a lovely small hotel, great staff, clean, comfortable spacious, good breakfast, great coffee, nice patio, close to everything. No
Very comfortable room. Good breakfast. Very pleasant people.
Friendly staff & the best coffee I've tasted in a long time!
Proximity to town centre. No hotel parking, or preferred rates in adjacent public car park.
We had dinner at the Brasserie, which was outstanding. Both the food and service far exceeded our expectations.
The food was superb. The breakfast buffet was well done and had a nice variety. The surrounding garden and proximity to all points of interest (city, Thermal spa, lake, nature trail) including public transportation was ideal. Show case windows (watches, etc.) were a nice added feature. Noise from private party and other guests.
The staff were very welcoming and at dinner the waiting staff quite charming,efficient and helpful. Great cooking too and don't miss dessert ! No air conditioning in the bedroom; the bath is narrow and I'm not wide !!
It was close to where I had a meeting . Location is important. The resteurant is expensive
Extremely poor breakfast, considering the room rate!!
I appreciated the kins and efficient service, the clean and cossy room and the nice eating places in it The room was slightly small.
Hotel staff is outstanding!!
The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating to our requests. It made our experience delightful and we will be coming back each year. Our compliments to Miguel in the restaurant and Laura at the front desk. We will highly recommend this hotel to our friends and look forward to returning next year.
The hotel is nicely situated in a garden. It is possible to play golf, tennis and table tennis there. The hotel has a very nice spa/wellness facility with sauna, hammam and jacuzzi. The restaurant is quite nice as well. A combination for a very relaxing and agreeable week-end.
Very clean, comfortable and large single room. Quiet location. Great breakfast.
The View very noisy from the bar until 2:30 AM
Excellent hotel with very good service. Staff is very helpful and courteous. Location is very convenient, very close to downtown and train station. I will definitely use this hotel in my next trip.
The staff was exceptionally helpful (and thankfully, for us, they spoke English!). Great location right on the lake, and close to shops/restaurants.
Very good location, closed to many seeing points. As per guide by the hotel, I paid SFr 15 for 3 hour wireless internet access. Provider was Swiss Telecom. But, signal was too weak anypwere anytime in the hotel. Succesful access time was only a few minutes. I just wasted money.
The room was very clean and had a nice bathroom. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even when I had special requests. The location was perfect! I wish the room had been larger or had a view.
The location was good. Staff was very helpful and accomodating. Would be great to either have fridge in room or ice machine in hallway with an ice bucket.
Convenient for for our trip! Perhaps the breakfast offered could have had more variey!
Convenient position. Parking concession. Access.
Hospitality of the hotel's staff, excellent location, reasonable price
I liked the excellent central location on the lakeside and in the city centre.Good buffet breakfast and excellent restaurant for pasta/pizza and beers. Nice hot shower in bedroom. Helpful bi-lingual staff
The location none
The Hotel is right on the historic centre, which is great. The serre in the breakfastroom gives a breathtaking view of lac Morat. The room was ok, and clean. I would have liked to have the possibility to make coffee and tea in the room. The bathroom was clean, but had no lock on the door.
Hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Hotel was a bit expensive. Next time I might by pass the town of Murten and stay in Avenches.
If you need to stay in Murten, this is an excellent choice because of the location. This is an update to my previous review to change it from rather negative to positive. The item initially was mailed not as a package, but as a regular mail in an ordinary envelope. The envelope broke and that delayed delivery beyond the point I left the country. I have to say that the management went out of their way to remedy the situation and eventually shipped the item to my home country.
The location of the hotel situated by Lake Murtens is quite nice. I would have rated the hotel as 2 or 2 and half * instead of the 3*. The hotel does not have AC, at night the mosquitoes swarmed into the room if we open the windows and the room gets stuffy and hot if we close the windows. The screen still allowed the mosquitoes to get into the room. The towels were thin, worn out, cover was haevy, a weird smell in the room and decor is spartan for a 3* hotel
Wonderful balcony! Splendid view! Fantastic room!
This hotel is in an excellent location on the shores of the veery pretty lake of Murten with phantastic views over the lake, the small boat harbour and the surrounding hilly countryside. The restaurant terrace overlooks the lake.Murten is an exquisite historic small town, well worth a visit.
The hotel was too expensive for what it was, we were given an upgrade to a room with a 70' style decor and a massive circular bed. Bathroom very old and hot water was off and on.Rooms definately need to be refurbished.
We were upgraded on the room, so the view of the lake from the balcony was stunning, as was the furnishing of the suite. The proprietors were exceptionally helpful.
The room design was different and pleasant. The reception staff were very good, helpful and friendly. Some of the furniture is relatively old and in my opinion could do with a change.
