Flag is a lovely and modern hotel, not too far from public transportation and supermarkets. The room was specious and clean and reasonably priced. My only complain would be lack of staff and unwelcoming check-in. We had to call them a few times (with our own phone) to get checked in and make other arrangements since there was nobody at the reception after 5.

Extremely disappointed
I stayed there before but this time I was very disappointed. First when I arrived nobody was there and they did not think to send the door pin code as other hotels are doing in Switzerland. I had to wait 20 minutes before understanding that nobody worked at the reception after 5 pm. Then I called the customer service department and I was asked to provide my bank card number (never charged) while the booking was already paid. The worse happened few days later when while at the small fitness room within the hotel, I was surprised to see an external security guard who asked me not only to leave the room but also the hotel and to use my PIN code with him looking at me to check if I was really a guest. The last night, we had to support for few hours a strange situation with a young girl undressing herself in the street (She was staying at the hotel) front of the hotel and shouting. Nobody called the police or any security service. You never experience such situations in Switzerland and I was very disappointed. It would be my last stay there.
