This was the most charming hotel in every way. Pay a bit more for a deluxe room upgrade and be treated to a more of a quaint Swiss visit. The staff is so pleasant and helpful. I mentioned the need of a taxi to the airport to the young lady delivering my room chocolate and within SECONDS it was taken... More

I stayed for 2 nights and 1st night is my birthday. Although the room is not big but good enough but with a balcony with sided lake view. The hotel is well decorated in Europe style which is very lovely. Breakfast environment is good and food are fresh although not a wide variety. Will recommend to everyone.

This hotel was the show stealer of our Swiss vacation. Sebastian/Eva/Eria are a mother-son/fiance trio clearly educated in Fine Hotel management. They made us feel incredibly welcome and waited upon. Our copious amount of luggage was briskly brought to our rooms (and there is an elevator!) which, by the way, are all unique in their design and decor. The rooms... More

Fantastic old style hotel, high ceilings, windows that open, individually decorated rooms. Very accommodating multilingual front desk staff. A bonus is that you can walk to the local train station (not Central Station) for a 15 minute ride to the airport.

Great location near the operahaus and a walk from Bellevue and accessible to walk all around the old town of Zurich. The staff were friendly and the room fantastic although we had 2 singlebeds; which is odd for a romantic hotel. We also ate in the hotel restaurant which has an excellent French. Breakfast was also good and free WiFi... More

A beautiful, warm and inviting small hotel. Right next to the Zurichsee and only a very short walk to the Bahhofstrasse and old town. The staff could not be nicer or more accommodating. Excellent value; you will not be disappointed.

Stayed here for 1 night on my way back to Los Angeles. Loved everything about this hotel - classy and chic. The room is spacious, nice king sized bed with comfortable pillows, bedroom slippers and white linen toiletries. Although the bathroom was a little tiny even for a petite lady like myself BUT it didn't bother me. Book online using... More

Not only is the hotel charming and in a great location, it gets the prize for quality service with a smile. The staff really care that you are satisfied and happy with your accommodation. They could not have been more welcoming or gracious. We stayed here for 6 nights and would happily return on our next visit to Zurich.
