I was there with family and we had 3 rooms there in March 2014.the hotel location was really well. staff were polite and helpful rooms was very warm,clean and spacious and each room had a separate design. Most of the passengers were business men at that time. Breakfast was good and waiters were very polite.

Easy walk from the train station. Instead of the expensive breakfast, go diagonally across the street to the grocery store and stock up on fruit, yogurt and pastries - or Starbucks is across the street. Given tiny Swiss hotel rooms, at least this hotel has efficient room design, with plenty of shelf space in the bathroom to organize toiletries, etc.... More

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.

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.
