The hotel is a short tram ride out of the city and its an easy walk back into town. (but up hill on the way back) Rooms are clean and modern with plenty of space for cases. We were there (twice) and fortunately we were upgraded both times. Up grade included a room conditioner that is absolutely necessary during the... More

Good quality for the money. The hotel is located in a relatively quiet neighbourhood and also close to the city centre, which can be reached quickly by public transportation (tram). The rooms we had were well equipped, however the air condition was very noisy.

We booked this hotel since it was close to the home of our family who lives in Zurich. Ummm...we enter the room and immediately request a change which they granted with good attitude. They gave us an up-grade to a room with "air-conditioner"... Meaning a noisy "something" with some air that didn't got below 26 degrees Celsius. So it was... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on a recent visit to Zurich. We chose it because it was a short way from the City and likely to be quieter. There is a tram passing the hotel every few minutes which takes you to the City (three stops away). On arrival, the receptionist could not have been more helpful... More

I returned to Zurich on business in time for another heat wave and desperately sought a hotel that provided air conditioning (as opposed to just saying they do, which is more the norm). Bucking accepted practice in Zurich, this hotel has equipped some of their rooms with portable-type air conditioners. While these units are incredibly noisy (the compressor is indoors),... More

We stayed in a family room with 4 beds in June, and the hotel was just terrific! Nothing too fancy, it was just the right level of convenience and sophistication for our family. The location is excellent - you can walk down the hill to the Altstadt and then take the tram 2 stops back up to the hotel, if... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was just right and the down comforters are divine! The location is great - it's in a somewhat residential area but easily accessible by tram and within walking distance of the train station and main part of the city.

At 9:30 PM there will be no staff at the hotel and all employees going home and in a case of emergency, there will be no one to report. If you travel in summer time, majority of the home does not have air conditioner and the room becomes practically a sauna. I really should give this hotel just two and... More

Nice hotel, friendly and nearby the main station of Zürich. Rooms may be small but comfortable and very clean. The elevator is quite small, making difficult to lift in with the baggage. My overall is very positive and I definetely recommend it.

Our family booked two rooms, and we needed an extra bed in one of them. I chose this hotel based on the reviews, proximity to the train station, and because it is a 100% non-smoking hotel <3 We arrived at an untimely moment, our room was not ready yet, but they were very kind and offered us hot drinks while...
