This hotel very much suited our needs, as it was central, clean and efficiently run. On arrival we did ask to move to a quieter and less smelly room and that was fine. Breakfast was basic but reasonable quality and rooms were small but all in all, we would stay again.

This hotel is run by a non-profit to benefit "socially challenged women"...many of which, it seems, are working the street right outside the hotel doors at night. There are 2-3 bars right across the narrow street from this very budget hotel and the bars are open until 4am. The noise on a Saturday night was awful. The hotel has no... More

We stayed for 1 night in a room on the 7th floor with amazing panoramic views of Zurich. We found the room temperature fine with the window open and fan on and didn't hear any noise from the street below. Hotel is well maintained and very clean. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful - happily let us check out 30 minutes... More

the hotel was great value for money as we were travelling europe we wanted to keep costs down. we booked the smallest room available but were pleasently surprised by the size. The room was spotlessly clean too. The first night there we discovered that none of our travel adapters fitted plugs in the room. On consulting the info left in... More

The room was clean but the bed was a bit small comparing to a double bed. Clean hotel with good location very economic, good price for Zurich. Nice and helpful staff.... More

Only stayed here for one night but very easy to access from the main train station, and close to everything within the old city. Relatively reasonable price for Switzerland - just be warned that if it is hot during the day there is no air conditioning, and leaving the windows open leaves you subject to the noise of the traffic...

The main attraction of this small European-style hotel is that it is centrally located in the heart of the old city of Zurich. It is right across the river from the main railway station. It is just two alleys behind Limmatquai, the main street on the left bank of the Limmat River which cuts Zurich in two. So everything in... More

I have chosen this hotel because I needed a suitable place to spend one night before my flight from the Zurich airport. The hotel is clean, 8 minutes walk from the Zurich railway station, breakfast is included in the price and the stuff is friendly. Anyhow I would never stay there more than one night. First and foremost - the... More

We had booked our reservation last month for a six-night stay with a baby and came to Zurich only to find out that they didn't actually hold our reservation. They acknowledged that the reservation was made but that their system cancelled without warning us. They felt no responsibility to honor their reservation or find us an alternative place to stay....

Hotel located in a central area of Zurich with very friendly staff. Zurich is expensive, but this hotel has low-level standards. Rooms have no frigobar (no glasses or teapots even) and no air conditioning (only a fan). The TV channels are only in German. The hair-dryer has to be requested at the reception. The breakfast is good and we should... More
