Within walking distance of trams, Old Town, the lake, the Opera House and Bahnhofstrasse, you couldn't ask for a better location. The hotel is in a historic building, more than 100 years old, so if you're looking for modern and trendy, go elsewhere. If you value service and charm in addition to a perfectly lovely room with all the needed... More

I spent two nights in this hotel while on business. It was charming and quant. Clean comfortable rooms and you cannot beat the location. Walking distance to the old city, restaurants and shops galore.

Not sure why this hotel is rated so high. It must be rated soley on the fact that it is old and I would assume romantic/historic to some people. The rooms are small even for europe I upgraded my room and would have hated to see the normal size room. There are no amenities in the room. No Fridge, the... More

This hotel is in a good location, and is a very easy walk to the lake and river, and a short walk to the main shopping street and the old part of town. Check-in was very friendly. I had a one person room on the 4th floor, with a large single bed. The bathroom was smallish. The room was a... More

We had a small but delightful, room and the hotel décor,( for those who are not into ultra modern furnishings) were charming and inviting. Excellent restaurant in the hotel, most amazing pumpkin soup ever! Walking distance to the train station and the Zurich lake.

We stayed 3 nights in a Suite and were absolutely delighted with our stay. The room was large and spacious, super clean with nice attention to detail in the decor. The two bathrooms were small but modern. Would suit a romantic stay, family holiday or even a business stay. The free wireless internet is efficient enough for the business traveller... More
