When we did Reception was very helpful (owners on site), room well heated in a cold climate, kitchenette very good, no lift and limited parking which was an extra... 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

It is located at 5 tram stop from the B.station( 10 minutes). Clean hotel with big room. In my room there was a pc, a big tv, a sofa, a small table and kitchen and good wifi. Check in is automatic. Very quiet street.there was a market at the firs tram stop before hotel.

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

The TV had very poor reception. Did not receive most channels! The breakfast was the worst I've ever had, went to McDonalds after first morning. The hotel staff did nothing to resolve my concerns. I told the front desk four times about the TV issues, they just shrugged Thier shoulders. Get a better staff or sell the hotel to someone... More

Excellent value in an unbilievably expensive city. We stayed for two nights and this hotel made the most out of our stay. The kitchen facility - amazing, especially the kettle was much appreciated. We saved a ton of money just because of the kitchen. Zurich is very expensive and this made it possible for us to visit many places simply... More

Located in a residential area maybe around 15-20 minutes walking from old town. We got a room that really didn't look like the pictures on the website. Staff not always present. You have to do the check-in with the machine and if you have any problem, no one can help you. When we arrived in the room we had only... More

This hotel is a bit out of the way but on a tram and only a short trip to the city. The staff weren't that friendly, quite abrupt, maybe a cultural difference. The room was well equipped with a kitchenette and balcony but no tea bags etc. After a week of travelling the free laundry facitiies were a bonus. The... More

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER, RUDE STAFF. False advertising, room not as described and in picture! Wifi not working! I saw some other negative reviews before booking but thought that was just poor luck for them. Well, same service for me. DO NOT GO HERE, not worth it.
