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.

I was given a room in the fourth floor. We have to walk up the stairs. As we are old folks, it was quite a problem ans we have to carry up our bags.

But for you and all people that have difficulties walking stairs: Contact me after your booking and I will try to give you the lowest floor possible. We have no rooms on the... More

Unfriendly staff, small room, expensive price. late check in, early check-out... they are very smart business people, if client wasnt the king. We arrived really tired and they made us wait extra 2 hours, until we could check-in. Location was good, although, close to main attractions of Zurich. I wouldnt recommend it to anyone.

Thank you for your reply. And the compliments. It has nothing to due with beeing clever or good businesspeople, but we need to clean the rooms first.

Regarding the price, it is a very good hotel. Good location and clean. I stayed there for only one night, so it was perfect to me already. (I don't think I would chose this hotel to stay for a couple of days, because it could be quite noisy at night, but for one night, you could bare almost anything hahaha:))... More
