Fine if you need cheap(ish) Lodging. Please note that you can't park here. To park in the nearest house can easily cost another 20 CHF per day. The smell of asian kitchen is clear all over the hotel. The toilet is fine and the bed is clean and very soft.

The apartment is pretty far from the city centre, don´t get fooled by the reviews that say it is closed to the Train Station. You really have to climb a high hill to get there and carrying a bag will not be a small task, It is also quite difficult to find, no clear signs and if it is dark... More

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.
