"We used to stay in a hotel, but we saw that this apartment hotel in Zug had opened. Here you have much more space and this in the best location in the city center. Great furnishings, everything very high quality. We'll be happy to come back! “
And this is just one of many positive reviews for the Gubelhof Suites which opened its doors last autumn. Shortly after that, the Kaffe Frech also opened, offering a double shot of style right in the heart of Zug.
The cafe serves as the location for residents of the Suites to have freshly prepared coffee and food in the mornings and is open the the general public as well. On any given day, the cafe is lively, with friendly servers and a bright open floor plan. People from all walks drop in for anything from waffles and quiches to afternoon coffee and cocktails.
The suites and cafe are a dream come true for German-born Maria Coli and her Swiss husband, Bardhyl. Both have hospitality in their blood. Maria studied International Tourism and Event Management in Berlin and Oxford and also holds an MBA from Switzerland. Bardhyl graduated from the Hotel Management School Belvoirpark in Zurich and completed chef, service and wine academy training. They are certainly well suited to host their guests at Gubelstrasse 7.
Before making their dream a reality, the couple worked as Hotel Managers since 2012 in the four-star Waldhotel Davos and Hotel Vitznaurhof. They also took over management of the five-star superior Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpin Spa. Everything in the Gublehof Suites and Kaffe Frech have been carefully hand selected by the couple. The stylish interiors of the 11 apartments create a boutique hotel feel, with all the luxuries of serviced apartments.
"Each of our apartments has its own character and offers you a home away from home. The suites are furnished with fantastic photographs by famous local artists,“ says Coli. And with easy access to sightseeing, shopping and transportation, they are just right for tourists and business travelers alike.
