My room (deluxe lake view) was a pleasant surprise. It consisted of a large sleeping area plus a sitting area, both nicely furnished. The balcony was also large and included both a table and chairs to sit at plus a lounge chair. The bathroom was also large and nicely fitted out. And finally, there was a small area by the...

The location is absolutely perfect. When we arrived however, the reception was really busy and we had to wait quite some time to be served. In addition the people at the reception were a bit stressed which affected our checking in experience. Be aware that parking is not free. In addition, it might not be available at busy times.

The disappointing experience with this hotel starts with the check in - we had to wait 45 minutes and suffer a distinct "customer is always wrong" attitude. It seems disorganized and chaotic (in a bad way), despite the best efforts of the over worked staff at the desk. The hotel itself is hugely disappointing - the decor and indeed the...

The hotel has an excellent location, close to the city center and of easy access to other attractions. Ou room was lake side, so we had a wonderful view from the lake. Breakfast is buffet stile with a great variety of options from cold cuts, breads etc . I definitely recommend this hotel.

The receptionist were very welcoming and informative. The hotel upgraded our reservation to lake view delux apartment, which was appreciated. The rooms and bathroom were clean, as you expect from a hotel in Switzerland. For an apartment, the amenities were really poor! No tea maker, no tea at all! Just 2 coffee capsules for us who were 3! The breakfast...

I have been waiting in the lobby to be checked in for a long time. Even there was another group of people cutting in line right in front of me and hotel crews didn't say anything at all. It is NOT a pleasant experience. And I have not seen it in my other hotels during my 2-week visit to Switzerland....

We booked a superior double room at the end of July, beginning of August. Check-in was friendly and helpful, even though we were about one hour early. The room itself was very big with two large single beds making a double and space for a sofa / lounge area too. There was also a large balcony overlooking a quiet road...

I stayed with my family at Ramada Arcadia for two nights in July. We booked the hotel online through their website the day before ($260 per night per room). On the day of arrival the hotel rooms were meant to be ready at 3pm. When we checked in at reception at 4pm we were told it would be another hour...
