Awful hotel. Defenetly not 4* --- very poor 3*!!!! I stayed just for 1 night (with very late ckeck-in and very early check-out) that`s why I didn`t ask to change my room and fix electricity but lamps didnt work. I had lights only in bathroom and a small lamp near the entance door. Table lamp had bare wire!!! There is... More

Yes beds are bed bug free and that is the only good thing about this hotel. We were in Zurich unplanned, so I booked this online at the last minute. Receptionist didn't greet us with a smile. He wasn't being rude but he didn't make us feel welcomed. He was helping someone when we're arrived, could've said `i will be... More

The hotel is not far from tram station which is itself 7 minutes from Zurich train station (HBB). The staff at counter was helpful and courteous. Checking in was brief. The room for two of us was good in terms of size, bed, bathroom and noise insulation. Didn't have chance to try out breakfast as it charged a hefty CHF22/head!... More

This hotel certainly isn't the 4-star it's advertised online as, with its quite basic facilities and not very polished service, but it's inexpensive for Zurich and located within a 15-20 minute walk from the city centre (and close to a tram stop that will have you at the main railway station in minutes). Think of this as a basic travel... More

Plus: Large room, quiet enough and comfortable bed. Minus: To park, you have to go beghind the hotel (make a right 3 times). Stuck at the garage door for 10 minutes with luggage and infant, as you have to ring to get into the hotel, it was faster for my wife to go around and through the hotel to open... More

Great hotel to stay if you're looking for an affordable place in downtown Zurich...walking distance ( about 15-20 minutes) from Langestrasse which has an active night life. Great location right across the street from a movie theater/mall and plenty of restaurants right around the corner. Only drawback if you're a light sleeper is the rather noisy bar next door which...

This hotel was consistently good but I would have a hard time calling it "very good." If TA let you do half circles then I would have rated it 3.5. The room was fine - clean but not anything special. The location was fine - close to a tram but you need to take the tram for about 10-15 minutes... More
