Location - The property is right in the middle of the red light district. This was very intimidating,especially for my wife. As we neared the Guesthouse,we observed a heavily increased police presence. Two seperate incidents where people were being searched by Police. Barbed wire around some of the premises nearby. Numerous sex shops on the street & several ' unsavoury... More

If standing in a street full of drug dealers and prostitutes is the way you like to spend an evening then this is the guesthouse for you. It only took 4 phone calls to get the key code to get into the apartment. The one they sent us when we booked didn't work and was wrong. Standing outside making calls... More

Booked to stay here twice in a double apartment. The first night we arrived early afternoon and had to phone a number to get a code for our key as no reception and we had received no code in advance. The room was on the ground floor and like an oven with no Air-con. The bed was small and uncomfortable.... More

I have just arrived Back to UK after a weekend with my friend in Zurich- these apartments are 10min walk from the main train station. Very central- it's very safe and clean. I would highly recommend these apartments. Zurich is expensive so these are great value for money. Our apartment had a fridge, TV, wifi, iron and ironing board while... More

I give no stars to this establishment. It is situated in the red light district of Zurich. Many people would not be bothered about this but my husband and I were very bothered ! There were prostitutes everywhere outside. The building smelled of drugs. The room certainly did NOT match the photograph. We stood in the room ( my husband... More

We arrived late at night and didn't have any trouble finding the place even though it was situated back from the street and was named the apartments Swiss star. We hadn't realised that it was in the red light district when we booked and it was very busy late at night. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable although... More

Guesthouse Brauerstrasse was just ok. Nothing special, really. The location is centrally located, however, it is in a rough neighborhood (lots of drug dealers, drunks and prostitutes around). The street noise at night is very loud with the drunks out on the street.The rooms are clean, but are very small and cramped. The bathrooms, to be honest, are not very... More

The only thing we will remember of this hotel is the position in the city which is quite calm although in the red light district. The room did not correspond at all to the description and pictures you find on internet: small...so small that the heating was behind the bed....on our heads. In addition the bed was dirty, full of... More

We did not realize that the guesthouse was unattended and had difficulties getting the key from the box as our booking number had 61 added onto the end of it (possibly country code?). We would not have book this accommodation if we knew that it was in the 'red light' district. However the room was clean and the bed comfortable.... More
