Great location, older property but excellent service
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Really enjoyed my stay. Booked via Amex so upon arrival they welcomed me warmly and offered me breakfast, complimentary, as the flight arrived in the morning and the room was not ready. Lovely food and the glass terraces room was a warm place to enjoy a long lazy breakfast.

The room was spacious, with very comfortable bed and large bathroom. The decor is somewhat outdated but they keep it fresh and clean. My room didn’t have much of a view, I booked the lowest priced option, but looked back onto the city.

As always, the impeccable service, attention to detail and warm smiles from all the staff are such a hallmark of this amazing hotel group. Well done and thank you. Highly recommended and the Amex benefits make it very reasonable for a five star experience.

room very outdated, dirty and full of smoke on non smoking floor, they changed us to a supposedly “ updated room” which was larger but equally, dirty. Stains on couch, stain on floor next to bed, make up stain on towels, chipped toilet seat, cheap toilet paper like a bag. Basically motel quality for 600$ per night.. see pics below I asked Amex to call and tell them I would like to check out, they said they would charge me 600$ for the night.. shameful see pics

I travel abroad almost every week, and I stay in A LOT of hotels, usually 4 or 5 star (lucky me, ‘perks’ of business travel), most are pretty good, not much to choose between them, so I don’t always bother to write a review BUT this hotel was exceptionally good, and it definitely warrants a review. Granted I was given a suite (I know, spoilt), the room was lovely, really comfortable bed, well thought out location of lights, sockets etc, big bathroom with walk-in double shower, and stand alone bath, and bidet, dressing area etc. but it was the thoughtful little touches that really stood out to me, and quite honestly surprised me. I brought my book. I have been reading it for a while, and every night I turn down the corner of the page to mark my place. Last night when I reached my room a little angel had thoughtfully left a (very nice actually) bookmark on top of my book for me. Wow! So sweet. What a nice touch :-) For those of you who travel on business, FYI the meeting rooms were excellent too, as were the Congress staff. In fact all of the staff I encountered, were exceptionally polite and charming and efficient. Even the food was good, especially the breakfast buffet and meeting break outs. Honestly what’s not to like? OK, it’s not cheap but hey 1) nothing is cheap in Switzerland! 2) you definitely get what you pay for, so, if your travel budget will stand it, and you want a blissfully smooth, stress free experience - The Mandarin should be top of your list IMHO

Perfect location and comfortable bed

The hotel is literally an 8 minute walk to the station and from the shops. Many bars and restaurants are close by. The view from the rooms facing the river and the Saleve is beautiful and relaxing. The traffic noise stopped at 11 pm and was fine eve. With windows open. Bedroom is very comfortable with lots of space to move around and soft furnishings. Great powerful shower.
