From 2020 completely renovated Rooms
During the months October 2019 until March 2020 we have completely renovated our "Chic" and "Panorama" rooms from the 1st to the 4th floor and restored the historical facade of our hotel.
The restoration of the facade has already been completed and the rooms are ready to be discovered!
We were working on renovating our rooms, restoring our façade and installing a new lift when everything stopped due to coronavirus... We look back with pride at what we have achieved for our guests in spite of everything. This video keeps alive the memories of a very special time in the 115-year history of our hotel.
We are pleased to share some insider views of the various completed steps:

The last stage of a renewal project started in 2013 of CHF 8 million
During the winter months, from November 2019 to March 2020, we completed the second stage of the total renovation of the rooms on the 3rd and 4th floor. The structures, plant engineering and interior design have been completely renovated.
With a total investment of CHF 8 millions, including the first stage of the rooms on the 1st and 2nd floors, the renovation of the heating plant and the conservative restoration of the dome and facade and of our historic building, we have completed an important renovation project of our hotel.
The objectives that the Schmid family, owner of the hotel since 1906, wants to achieve, are to improve the comfort of the rooms, following a concept that fits well into the historical context of the building and optimize energy efficiency.
Our construction philosophy
The decoration of the common areas, characterized by antique furniture, art objects and the height of the ceilings, gives the building a unique atmosphere that we strive to maintain. We aim to be a historic hotel but not an old one; we combine the historical "flair" of the centenary palace with the comfort of today's living; we strive to manage our hotel in a familiar but professional way putting the customer at the center of our business.
We carefully evaluate the comfort, usability and intuitive operation of each component of the room.
We choose to work with local craftsmen who know our hotel and its peculiarities. We take into account the advice of the craftsmen who often are the result of experience in the field that we are pleased to take advantage of.
