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

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
