Apartments Swiss Star is kind of what we thought bearing the prize in mind. Its pretty far from the city centre, quite spartan and small (no cutlery/glass/cups), but a small balcony makes the room sufferable. Easy check in but no service on site. Clean and quite calm.

I recall last year trip when I went to Switzerland, Zurich was the first place we have visited and stayed, so did this hotel. Overall, the hotel was like a home, I felt like I was home when I came into the door, although the room was not big, the facility was actually fully equipped. They got own kitchen, which... More

- Very hot rooms (no air conditioning) - Very noisy (the train station is very near, and the walls are quite thin) - When I arrived, my studio was not ready (still occupied). It took the customer service 1 hour to arrange a new one for me. Customer representants didn't even apologize for the disturbance. Rooms, however, are kept mostly... More

Just a place to sleep, dont expect anything more, Nobody in the reception, you need to type the code and get the key yourselves. Hotel Room and toilet were clean. There is a small restaurant outside the hotel running By Mr Kumar, a srilankan person, helped us in many ways. Can't find such people much in this world. However we... More

This is a very unpleasant place to stay....more like a box room for luggage and the smell of curry on most floors. Stayed there for one night, left the place 6am the following morning....the nearby apartment is a lot better to this dump

We only stayed one night but were happy with what we found, the room was small but comfortable, the beds were good and the apartment was clean. There's no reception andctge entrance is a bit hidden but if you know what to expect then this place is otherwise perfect.

We booked to stay for one night, not realizing there is no reception at the hotel. That was our fault for not reading properly. The hotel was a little out of the city centre, but easy to find, about 1km walk from the Zürich Hardbrücke train station, and 100m from the buses and trams. There are clear instructions posted on...

So I am heading on business to Zurich and have decided to stay for a weekend. A friend decided to book into this hotel so I naturally followed. I got slightly distracted while doing the booking via booking.com website, and made an error while choosing the dates exactly by one week. Having realised this almost immediatly, I have sent a...

3 times I tried to make a reservation of these apartments and every time the message about problems with my credit card was received (that by the way was absolutely ok). Eventually, when I and my wife have returned back from Zurich (naturally we had to book in to another hotel with the same CC), I found that my CC... More

My heart is still pounding in anger from the final of their screw ups. But i'll come back to that in a moment. First, the apartments are located in a lousy, ugly part of town. 2nd, to activate their internet you need a functioning cell phone, which i don't have in Switzerland. So i had to find someone to borrow... More
