Hotel was very good and clean, with great staff and service! Free mini bar with a beer, soft drinks, water and chocolate. Rooms also had a coffee machine. Stayed here with few friends as a stop over. Location was good! Near the lake and about 15min walk to the shops. For the price too, it exceeded expectations. Breakfast was also... More

This is not a 4 star hotel, even for the optimists like us. Honestly don't have anything decent to say about this "hotel" unfortunately. Rooms and hotel are very outdated and cheap in appearance, location is not great at all, the free minibar is atrocious (only a couple of soft drinks) and breakfast was plain and horrible. Description and pics... More

This hotel exceded expectations. Free mini bar, free drink from the bar, bottle of champayne in our room and exceptional breakfast which included oysters and prosecco! We stayed over new year so may have had extras which are not standard. Location was spot on, close to the shops, 5 min walk to the old town which is beautiful and 2... More

I've stayed at other hotels in Zurich but this beats them all for service and facilities. I found all the staff to be warm and welcoming and everyone made an effort to speak English. The breakfast is great and offers much more than the typical boring continental breakfast of breads and spreads familiar with most European hotels. The rooms are... More

The staff is very friendly. The rooms are nice and very clean. Good breakfast with a great choice. The location of the hotel is perfect, walking-distance form the Bahnhofstrasse. It was our third visit to the hotel, again a great stay!

I have been a guest of this hotel for many years now, but I never bothered to write a review. And that is not because I don't care about the hotel, in fact I really like it. To start with, it is not part of a chain which makes everything a bit more personal. The interior of the hotel is... More

I have stayed here twice and each time had a great stay, wonderful nights sleep and excellent service. The electric window shutters are a great touch allowing you to lock out the noise and light, aiding a great nights sleep! The rooms are moderately sized, well maintained and comfortable. The minibar and coffee machine are a nice touch along with... More

This hotel had very friendly and professional staff and good sized rooms. Also a free minibar which is a godsend in such an expensive city. All in all, I had a really good stay. The hotel could use a better reception though.
