I don't give many "5's", but here I will give this hotel a 5 for delivering very good value for money in a very expensive city. Here 117 € got me a simple but perfectly adequate and very clean room with comfortable double bed (two beds put together type), good bathroom with decent sized shower, buffet breakfast and very friendly...

Great hotel!!! Nice room, confort bed, great food at the restaurant! The location is good, quiet place, near from train station and hauptbanhof. If you want, there's a great gym right in front of the hotel. If you need any information, just ask at the reception, they have all the aswers (hehehe!)

This hotel was a good base. A tram stop was just around the corner where if you caught the number 4 tram you could get off at the Silquai stop from where all the tour buses leave. This was also the spot where you could pick up the classic trolley tour and other tours. Or you could continue a few... More

This hotel gives you all you need for an excellent price. Do not expect an upper class hotel with SPA and gym, but a good city accommodation with public transport to bring you in short time anywhere you want, 5 minutes by Tram to the main station and 10 minutes to the Paradeplatz. You will hardly find a similar offer... More

I stayed in this hotel when i was on my honeymoon to switzerland. The hotel is at very good location, you get tram just outside the hotel 2 mins walk and moreover the zurich main railway station is just 7 mins away from this hotel by tram.

Not worth the four stars it has, it seems as though the last renovations were made a long long time ago. The fact that there were no smoking signs on the hotel rooms was proof enough. The bed was mediocre, the walls very thin. However it seemed clean. The price is probably reasonable for Zurich but quite far off of... More

The Hotel is located in an normal neighborhood of Zurich, but really close to Hardbrucke Train station and just 3 walk from Tram stop. The price of the hotel is not truly honest regarding the room quality and general hotel overview. The breakfast costs 22 CHF (18 EUR), which according to my opinion is really expensive, related to the offered... More

First the negative, second the positive: First time in Zurich, the hotel charged me 2 times the same amount, because when you book online they block your account, and when I was there they charged me again.

Direct tram line into the center of the old town and main station. It runs very often and it is not expensive at all (one of the very few inexpensive things in this city) The hotel is a pretty dated one. It says 4 stars but well... when you get to the lobby you start thinking that you made a... More
