We're in City Studio, Zahringerstrasse 33, Zurich as I write this review. I booked using Hotels.com. First big problem, is lack of local manager. Check in and keys are handled across the street at Hotel Marta. But the clerks there know nothing other than hand you the keys. Their only option for problems or complaints is to email the anonymous... More

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.

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.
