Great boutique hotel located in the centre of Zurich on a quaint riverside location. We had a Medium room which was borderline small, so I wouldn't suggest getting a Small room. The hotel and rooms have very interesting art throughout and is well designed. There is no AC, so beware in summer.

My main requirement for a hotel is getting a good night's sleep...unfortunately this did not happen in this hotel! The room did not have aircon which wasn't suitable for the July heat. A fan was provided in the room but it was very noisy and seemed to just be pushing around the hot air. My boyfriend and I ended up... More

Great location in city central. It's a short walk to old town with many delicious diversions in on the way, whether it is for an aperitivo, some chocolate or a fine swiss watch. The hotel drips with charm and you can feel it's historical relevance just by its ambiance. The decor and amenities were a modern yet all tasteful upgrades.... More

Great dinner in a great dining room! If you want a dinner in the center of Zurich where you can have a good drink and a sublime dining experience, Helvetia is the place to go. It is not cheap, however you get descent portions of traditional swiss food and other regional dishes. An absolute must go if you are in... More

Perfect for a quick visit to central Zurich, just a 10 minute walk away from most of the sights. Note that this is a tiny building right on a busy street, so it's a bit noisy - you can hear the trams going by, quite loudly with the windows open which is necessary during the summer since there's no air...

I stayed here for few days . It was really different experience from the usual traditional hotels since it is attached to a Resturant in the first floor as it's main event with no lobby . Room size were OK . Staff were really friendly . Location was good but the noise of the tram is bothering sometimes .
