    The Gaia Hotel is a charming, clean hotel, and it could not be more conveniently located near the SBB main train station. The staff is friendly and professional, the breakfast filling and good, and the rooms are clean and a good value.

    This hotel has the attributes of a five star hotel, other than no restaurant(open for breakfast only). Management is meticulous about keeping the quality standards at the highest level. Great new Spa area. Right across from main train station. Eco friendly.
