This is a nice boutique hotel located in a bustling area of town. The night life nearby is... Unique! There are a few gentlemens clubs and adult stores near, but do not let this bother you! The staff is friendly and helpful! In general it is a nice, quiet place to stay!

This Hotel is one block from a main road and a river. There are numerous places to eat and shop in the neighborhood. The Hotel staff were the most pleasant and helpful that we encountered during our European visit. It's an easy walk to the main train station and to the Tour Bus meeting point.

Stayed a total of 6 nights in April. We were drawn to the hotel by its location and strong reviews & we weren't disappointed. Located less than 500 yards from the main train station in the "old town", off of the famous Niederdorfstasse, this hotel is in a perfect location. A whole slew of pubs, restaurants & shopping within walking... More

Modern, neat, clean rooms. Friendly and welcoming staff. Quick jaunt to train station. (Maybe a 10 minute stroll.) Suitable for a quick tourist visit to Zurich. Tip: Safari Bar around the corner on Zahringer Strasse a good bet for a cold beer.

Dear aannddy Thank you very much indeed for your evaluation. It's good to know that we may just proceed the way we've done so far.

It is across the river from the main train station, an easy walk. (No parking, so this is not a hotel if you are driving, but great if you are using train). Very friendly staff, nice décor, good value for money considering how expensive Zurich is. Rooms are a bit small, but not as tiny as some I have seen... More
