My room was very good – not very big, but with excellent furniture, and a private balcony with a good view on the city and the Alps. The room was enough insulated from outside noise, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was very good, too.
Breakfast was exceptionally good, with several choices available. Staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all, a very good experience.
. Our room faced out over an interior courtyard and some nearby houses with a view toward the mountains in the distance, lovely! There was a flat screen TV on the writing desk, a spacious wardrobe with safe and also mini bar. No tea or coffee-making facilities, but this is only usual in England and not in continental Europe. The bathroom was located behind a striped wall made of thick glass.
The Europa Splendid has a “Jugendstil”/Art Nouveau style throughout, and this was very apparent in the lovely breakfast/dining room when we came in there next morning for our breakfast. Sunlight flooded in through the beautifully coloured and decorated windows and I enjoyed being in that space.
Breakfast was a generous buffet with local style bread and rolls, spreads, cold cuts of cheese and ham, cereals and yoghurts, fruits, boiled eggs, also several warm dishes. Tea or coffee made to order, the cappuccino was delicious.

Our room faced the street, which is the main street of the town, with all of the shops, numerous restaurants, etc. It is paved with stones, and is a narrow street and every noise reverberated.
