Hotel de l'Ecluse is tucked away in a quiet little nook in downtown Neuchâtel. Five minutes walk from the train station, the historic town center, museums, and the port the hotel is in an ideal location. Newly remodeled rooms, all different in decor, are attractive. The hotel's cafe on the first floor provides breakfast and other small meals during the day. What I really appreciate is the free internet access, which is not all that common in Neuchâtel. You don't have to be a guest of the hotel to take advantage of this hotspot. Just sit down, order a cup of coffee or whatever, and connect.
