Great little place. It's in a quiet residential area, a few minutes from the main train station and easily accessible from several tram routes. Very clean (I checked everywhere) and cute room. The noise from the pub wasn't too bad, and I travel with ear plugs regardless. The staff/owners are very friendlyand helped me with a few things to do... More

Clean with accessable bathrooms on floor. Some people may complain about noise but we were perfectly aware that it were rooms above a pub before booking and in fact enjoyed the liveliness of the place. Sound proof windows elimated all sound/noise but an Airconditioner would be welcomed especially in summer. Close to Bus & Tram station and only 10 min.... More

A really nice and cosy place with fantastic personel. Quite close to the main station although in a quiet and relaxing location (according to us.) People complaining about sounds should try Langstrasse/Helvetiaplatz instead and see what noisy really is :) Nothing more to say, really nice place for a good price in Zurich.

My wife and I booked one night here during a one-day layover during a trip from the states to Italy based on the recmendations in one of the travel books we picked up at Barnes & Noble. It is now 3:30 am as we write this unable to sleep because of the noise coming from the first floor. When they... More

Kafischnaps is definitely the place to stay if you like somewhere quirky and fun, with a happening bar and cafe downstairs... I stayed one night in the 'cherry blossom' room, which was very cute with its old iron door in the room (something to do with the previous life of the place as a butcher shop, I presume) and two...

There are some reviews on TP where guests are complaining about the music downstairs. I think this makes the charm of this hotel . I mean where else can you go where you can mingle with locals watch a concert in the evening and being one block from where everything happens? Plus in a city where the average hotel price... More

It was real excitement to stay at this small hotel which is combined to a stylish restaurant / bar in Zuerich 4. They had nice food and some good drinks while hosting a small concert. Rooms (maybe four or five) are retro in style but very cosy. Some feature a balcony, but bathrooms on the floor. Kitchen available. Beside all... More

The Kafischnaps was not awful, it was OK. Its main problem was that it hadn't made its mind up if it was a bar or a pension. You book in through the bar and are taken up to the first floor to your room. There's only one bathroom and a separate toilet for a possible nine guests, so all of... More

I had planned to stay three nights at the Kafischnaps (and I had to pay for that), but I left after the first night because it was virtually impossible for me to stay any longer: My room was directly above the bar/café which turned out to play music as loud as a club, with aggressive beats and until half past...

We arrived in Zurich in the midst of a heat wave of about 90 degrees, so we were disappointed that Kafischnaps, a pension in Zurich, did not have air conditioning. However, we checked in during the morning and were able to shower (shared but immaculately clean bathrooms). The room was sparse but adequate. They didn't change the bed (duvet and... More
