    The hotel has a great location to allow you to easily get to anywhere you need to be. It is right next to the train and tram station. All of the staff were extremely friendly and showed an interest in helping us ensure we had a good time. Not only would I stay there again, but we have already booked and look forward to our next visit.

    Well done Hotel Metropol!

    Incredibly accomodating. Super quiet room even though overlooking main Street. 5 minutes from SBB train station and major tram stops. Prepared us a box lunch one day when catching train to different city for the day. AND made us breakfast and served in the lobby when we had taxi ride to airport at 4 Am day we departed. Clearly above and beyond customer service.

    This lovely hotel was two minutes from the train station, so perfect for day trips. It was walkable to the sights and restaurants. The bed was super comfortable! The staff were amazing - they provided extra pillows and hangers when asked and were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, with a good seIection of fresh fruit, cereals, etc. I highly recommend this hotel!

    We loved it. The staff were very helpful, even to the point of helping us to get our suitcases to the station, as my husband uses a walker. The It is very close to the station and the tram stop is only a few steps around the corner, past the Starbucks. We were able to go to the old town by tram without difficulty. And the breakfast was excellent!
