          9.2

          Have stayed there many times, indeed I once celebrated my 70th Birthday by inviting my family there for a four day visit. Has an excellent position overlooking the lake and the port of Lake Neuchatel, and therefore very easy to arrange trips to other places, or simply to use the beaches that are provided on the lakeside. Also very near town centre of Neuchatel with its many restaurants, shops and historical sights. Only downside lacks convenience of on site dining, other than breakfasts, and certainly at present prices in Switzerland are dearer than usual, due to the rate on exchange of the swiss francs

        • Single
          8.2

          Location - at the beautiful lake Neuchatel and close to the city centre - 5 minutes walk to the main shopping and restaurant area.

          Comfort - rated fair, because the room had no aircondition. During my stay it was hot 28 degC.

        • Couple
          6.2

          The location is good, right at the harbour and the lake.

          This hotel has no soul. Furniture and carpeting from the 80s with no taste and no style. The room was small and very basic. The staff at the reception desk was very business-like and neither warm nor friendly.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Location, next to the lake and in the center of town

        • Single

          Front desk was manned by a very nice gentleman who discounted my twinroom rate as I was travelling alone - I hadn't asked but it was extremely nice of him to offer it.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The staff was exceptionally helpful (and thankfully, for us, they spoke English!). Great location right on the lake, and close to shops/restaurants.

        • Single
          6.6

          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.

        • Single
          5.0

          Convient location.

          Hot during my stay, had no A/C or even a fan to help out. Noisy location with roudy people outside all hours of the night.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Location is great, close to harbour and shops, along the lakeside and lake pathways

          Extremely hot in room, we had to open windows but the area was very noisy (lake side on Saturday evening) despite the reception telling us the room would be calm. Breakfast was not very good (very few and not engaging fruits, egg cooker no working).

        • Single
          4.2

          The hotel is clean and the breakfast is supprisingly good compare to other services.

          The location of the hotel is I believe the only thing what keeps them afloat. Bedrooms have no air-conditioning, beds are worn out(you can feel the springs and the bedding has “old” smell. Beds appear to be made for very tiny people(and I am not a big person).Also when waking into the room you can feel musky air and it feel very unpleasant. Staff was very military which came across very rude. I have booked room with the town view, however the only view I had was a wall (maybe this is considered a town in this hotel).This hotel is very low budget (not the price-) and if you’d like to experience Switzerland in its glory this is not place to stay. I have stayed in this hotel only because there was no other rooms available in Neuchatel.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Only its position by the lake and its position in regard with the city

          the hotel needs renovation

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Room was wonderful; well designed and appointed. Staff were friendly and helpful.

          Nothing bothered us! We had a great stay.

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          the staff were helpful

          The location is very noisy; I paid extra for a "lake view" and the lake was only visible from the corner of the one window; they turn the hot water off at night and it takes until 8:30 or so for it to warm up sufficiently to shower; people congregate outside and party into the night and street musicians often play there.

        • Family with children
          5.4

          Good location. Rooms are without aircon not needed though except.to filter street noise. Room i stayed in was relatively small compared to other 3* and cramped with the unnecessary extra door in room. No wifi.

          The tap water for the first 20seconds was whitish n then ran fine. I do not know if it the problem with neuchatel.water or otherwise.
