This little hotel is in a great location and the staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are small as in most large cities. The windows open to let in the fresh breeze and the sounds of the city. I would recommend this hotel for business or vacation visits.

...and return as the hotel offers a great location in the centre of Zurich with friendly staff and a decent bar to enjoy a beer at the end of the working day. The steaks from the Kings Cave restaurant downstairs are very good and worth seeking out. Rooms are clean and tidy, some becoming a bit dated and the comments... More

Right in the heart of Zurich, comfortable rooms although small have everything one needs. Good internet connection and free. I would only complain about the shower, which sometimes randomly changes temperature.

I have stayed here on business trips a few times, mainly due to the location but I also like it because of the free wifi and the fact that they have BBC1 and ITV on the TV, which is a bonus when you're a Brit and get fed up with BBC World and CNN all the time. The staff is... More

Not sure how they managed to get 4 stars... The rooms are okay but nothing special! Room service charges CHF 5 everytime you ask for something! Ate the WORST club sandwich of my life, so disappointing after a busy day !! How can you not make a club sandwich yummy??! Only positive note, the location, that's it!

Stayed here while on business. Perfectly located 5 mins walk from the main station. And 40 CHF in taxi to the airport (15 mins). The rooms are quite compact but for one person adequate. The bar was lively with an excellent pianist. Staff on reception very helpful. Will certainly return when next on business.

I was prepared to write a good review about the hotel but after our experience, I felt highly taken advantage of. The rooms were clean although a bit small (but we were willing to overlook that) and the location very central to the train station as it's all within walking distance.

I spent one night here on an overnight journey. The hotel is situated in the very heart of Zurich, just a very small walk from the train station, and you are able to walk throughout the downtown core and along the river. Just lovely. Amenities are wonderful, room was standard, pricey, but worth it. I didn't eat in the restaurant,... More

Stayed here in January. The hotel is very central, pleasant, a little cluttered, quite pricey. I had two different rooms - one on the third floor next to a room of surly Russians smoking, my room with a so-called "river view", and another on a no-smoking floor, which was better but the room was pretty small. Comfortable, but rather compact.... More
