I had a very comfortable stay at the Hotel des Alpes. The staff were very efficient, although some were more friendly than others. I arrived very early in the morning and my room was not ready, but I was made very welcome and was able to leave my luggage and go off to see the sights.

Unique Quality: I couldn't believe the location of this hotel. It was right in front of Kappelbruecke, which I could see every time I looked out my window. It was also just a very short walk from the train station and extremely easy to find. The room was big, comfortable double bed and lovely renovated bathroom. As I arrived in a heat wave I was glad to see the room was equipped with a good sized pedestal fan and a bar fridge as well.

Directions: Just cross the bridge from the Train Station and there it is, right on the water.

Very Convenient to Everything

We only stayed here for one night since it was the last stop of our vacation so these are my reflections from the one day stay.

We arrived at the hotel at 12:00 after a short walk across the river. We were able to check in and put our luggage into a storage facility. The lady at the desk said to come back by 2:00 and they would have a room ready. At 2:00 we arrived back at the hotel after a little sightseeing and lunch and our room was ready!!

The room was fine with a small window that overlooked a little bit of a courtyard in the old town part of the city. If we had stayed more then one night I would have tried to get a room overlooking the river.

The next morning we had a 7:00 a.m. train to the airport and as we were leaving at 6:00 a.m. they offered to give us some coffee and sweets for the road which we declined as we were still stuffed from our dinner the night before (another tip).

Unique Quality: Enter through the courtyard side of the hotel rather then the river side. The check in area is right by the courtyard entrance.

The old elevator in the hotel was very interesting, unfortunately I did not take a picture of it. Getting to the room the first time was interesting as it is an old hotel with different levels and a couple of twists and turns. Once we found our way, however we had no trouble the few other times we came in and out.

Sweet Little Hotel

DesAples is a sweet little hotel right on the bank of the river. The location is just perfect. It is very near to the Railway station too. Infact one can see it from the Railwaystation. It is very near to the famous wooden bridge.

Getting to the front desk of the hotel could be a bit tricky. If you approach it through the river bank side, u will end up having to climb to the first floor. Take the approach from the back side next to the church. Thats pretty easy if u happen to have lots of luggage. Room was pretty small, but well kept with a minibar.

Unique Quality: The location could not be better. Just superb. But dont expect great views.

I don't mind recommending this...

by written on September 12, 2002

I don't mind recommending this quaint over 300-year old tourist-class hotel - Hotel des Alpes because of its EXCELLENT locality (facing the River Reuss) and the warm and friendly staff working there.

I don't know why... but everything in Switzerland costs a bomb. Yes, including their TOURIST-CLASS hotels like the Hotel des Alpes.

Unique Quality: If you're looking for a tourist-class hotel with old-world charms, look no further! Check this hotel out. Oh, and it's just across the street from where we were staying i.e. the Hotel Schiller.

They also have the coolest pub in town - Mr Pickwick Pub. I'd give it a *****-star rating.
