The worst thing that could happen when traveling is probably to not have any connection at all. Even if we only stayed for one night, the staff should've been more attentive about the wifi. We even came to the video store to ask about it. The only help was that he will try to contact the manager. Nothing happened afterwards.... More

Quiet location, less than 10 minute walk from Zurich HB train station. Good bars and restaurants at your door step. Clean and comfortable room size for two people. Wifi good. Only downside is that there is no elevator and can pose a problem with heavy luggage and you are on the fourth floor. Price is good for location.

We stayed at Citystudios for 2 nights. We were almost exhausted after taking the big luggage to our room on the 4th floor as there's no lift in the building. Besides, there's also no air conditioner in the room and it's quite hot even we opened the windows. As there're pubs and restaurants next to the hotel, we could hear... More

The location is excellent. Facilities is okay. There is no lift, so travel light if possible. All in all, a good place to stay. I could not find a similar facility at a similar price and location in Zurich.

I stayed in this apartment hotel for two night in March 2014. It was the first hotel where I had to look for a reception and found it in a video rental shop next door. You drop your keys in a mailbox upon leaving, there is no checkout as such. The room is clean, as is the bathroom. There is... More

Solid location and a decent price given how expensive Switzerland is, but the room itself was pretty basic without much personality and not particularly clean, but it did the trick for a quick one night stop while passing through.

We've just been in this hotel in Zurich for the opening of the indoor christmas market. We've spent one night and we've booked 2 apartments. The apartments were both clean, in a very good location, just 400 metros from the market in the central station and from singing christmas market. The hotel is basic, but a good choice for 1-2...

Cons: No lift so try and get a low level room. Its not a hotel so bring your own shampoo and soap. Only towels provided. No late check in so make sure you can get there before it closes. Check in at video store next door. Rooms that do the job but not really comfortable. Our room wasn't cleaned till... More

For the price, the location of this establishment CANNOT be beat. Just a short stroll across the river from the Zurich Hauptbahnhous. The tram system's "Central" station of the Zurich Tram with most lines passing thru or connecting to all points in the city is just 100m away as is the funicular up to the university district. Located in the... More

I've stayed with my friends for 5 days. We needed hotel close to the main attractions. And this hotel has excellent location! 5 min to Bahnhofstrasse. Room was clean. The reception is at the shop next door.
