I stayed at this hotel twice. In Switzerland where cost versus value can present challenges, I would rate this hotel about average for the cost. The location is convenient to the train, shopping, and the water. Unless you plan to stay in the hotel all day and/or you want real luxury, this is an acceptable choice.

The triple room was of average size it could be more big for its price. The third bed was not so comfort. Parking place was at the back side of the hotel and out. Overpriced (32 frcs p.day) as also the hotel but that is Zurich! Strange smell in room (508) The location was very good near the centre of... More

The stay started quite well with a friendly check-in but that was where the good service seemed to end. The booking advised we had the bigger room and our children the smaller one, but it turned out the other way round. Our bed was also small and had two small quilts instead of one for the whole bed - the... More

In a city as expensive as Zurich, it was so nice to find a really good hotel in a central location that wasn't outrageously expensive. The hotel is walking distance to almost all sites of the city and being a couple of blocks from the Bahnhoffstrasse, it was quiet especially at night. The staff was very friendly, spoke excellent English... More

This hotel has comfortable rooms (at least my experience), the staff is very helpful and it is located close to everything. Considering Zurich it has good prices. Only problem when I checked in they gave me three wifi passes, one for each device, but the passes last only for one day and I was staying two days. I am sure... More

Situated at an excellent location, a walking distance from shopping areas, parks cafeterias and other amenities this hotel excels in service, the friendly and smiling people that work there make you feel at home the moment you enter until you leave. And it is this feeling that money cannot buy. I therefore recommend very highly this hotel and congratulate all... More

A wonderful hotel with amazing staff; very nice rooms with all the amenities you can imagine including a nice espresso machine. The rooms are big and well designed and the beds are very comfortable with nice down covers. I can only recommend this hotel if you are eve in Zurich

This hotel is clean, quiet, and very nice. But what I really like about this hotel is that they are the complete opposite of some big name chains that charge for EVERYTHING. To begin with, me and my colleagues arrived very early on check -in day, well before noon, due to a very long overnight flight from Africa. We were... More
