Stayed here for 3 nights in August. Room was very clean and we appreciated the cooking facilities as Zurich is possibly the most expensive place i have ever been. Self service check in was difficult as our name was spelt wrong, however when the male owner arrived he was helpful. My husband made the mistake of leaving the key at... More

I stayed a couple of days for business. It was a good choice. A very good, well served location, staff was friendly and the room is comfortable. The kitchenette is well equipped. Good automated system for the keys

Hard to find the building for the first time. If you arrived Friday after 5 pm it’s too bad for you, if you have any questions. The room is extremely minimalistic: you hit your feet against the edges of the bed, hard to reach the garbage bin, you can’t keep the window opened when you seat at the table. There... More

Firstly, in such an expensive city this place is very inexpensive....which is a bonus in itself - The fact the apartment was brilliant, along with the staff and amenities was just a bonus. We were only there for two nights, so the price of it was all we worried about; after all, we were only really sleeping for a few... More

We stayed here recently for 4 nights to visit family and found it to be spotlessly clean and functional . Quiet due to shutters and those amazing double glazed windows to keep out noise and cold. Little kitchenette with microwave and hot plate so can cook simple meal or reheat. We did our own breakfasts and coffee before venturing out.... More

Far away from the center, very bad internet, this is an apartment, discretion is good but not well organised. Big room, very independent. But no help at all, difficult to find the place, paying at the check-in, good room, spacious ( double superior) with small fridge but building is ugly

I stayed in this hotel for a few days and was pleasantly surprised. The room was a respectable size, with bathroom en-suite and a small kitchen complete with microwave, kettle, coffee percolator, etc. The staff is on hand mornings only, check-in after midday is electronic at the door. Free wi-fi too, the only inconvenience is no lift but I didn't... More

I live here in Zurich and my parents came to visit, so instead of having them on a uncomfortable sofa i thought i would surprise them by staying at this "hotel" nearby... I booked for them a suite and gave them the info to check in as i had to work. Turns out my dearest parents didn't have the heart... More
