Wonderful hotel near Zurich main train station
Two night stay prior to ski vacation in St. Moritz. Regular room is very small (I visited a fellow travelers room). We had a suite which was spacious and convenient. It was an easy walk from the train station and convenient to restaurants. Breakfast was well appointed and tasty.

Staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They arranged both for early check-in and late check-out for us at the last moment to accodate changes to our travel plans, and stored our bulky bags for us to keep our room from being to crowded. Lovely restaurant, great location across from the train station and near lots of great shops and restaurants. We had a great view of the river from our room.

I booked a two night stay at this hotel. The room I paid for was a non smoking jr suite with king size bed and river view. The room they gave me was a jr suite with two twin beds and no view. I kindly informed the hotel staff that they had given me the wrong room as it wasn’t what I paid for. They responded that the room I had booked was unavailable but they could have it for me the next day. I asked if they could refund me the difference of what I paid but they declined. I’m a pretty non confrontational person so I just accepted my outcome and decided to come back the next morning for my room change. The next day I went to change my room and they told me again that the room was unavailable but this time my girlfriend got upset and told them that this is not what we had paid for. Also we had booked this room 2 months in advance. Finally the hotel staff spoke with his manager and they said that they “upgraded” us to the correct room. They ended up putting us in a smoking room with king size bed and river view. In the end, I was at least grateful that we were able to make that change but I still don’t understand why they put up such a big fight to give us the room that we had already paid for. Not sure if I would ever return back to this hotel as it wasn’t cheap to begin with.
