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

Although this was cheap for Switzerland, I had a rather unpleasant experience which has coloured my review. The apartments are located on Oerlikon which is an easy train journey from the centre of Zurich. Unfortunately, Oerlikon station is in the middle of a complete reconstruction which has made a mess of the local area and makes it difficult to navigate.... More

Fantastic stay at this apartment slightly out of town but still easy to walk to with backpacks. The kitchen was a bonus. The beds were very comfortable. The check in process was easy. You had to type in a code and your key was ejected from a machine. There were only a few things against it....there was a kitchen but... More

After a long flight from the United States my husband and I wanted just a solid night of sleep which we unfortunately did not get because the apartment was in an area that was quite noisy. The upside of the apartment was that it was clean and was supplied, at a basic level, of things we needed. The downside there... More
