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

In a quiet location 15 minutes walk from the Hauptbahnhof, and within walking distance to all major sights in the city. Friendly service in the reception and in the restaurant. Had a nice room with a good cooffe machine, something similar to Nespresso. Breakfast was good.

Besides, you will be offered a welcoming plate with fruit and great breakfasts. Selection of local cheeses was incredible. Location allows to reach almost every point in the city centre in maximum 15 minutes by foot. Still, the place is very quiet.

I am happy to have found this hotel as it is near most business areas without having to pay a crazy rate. The comfort rooms have a lot of light and are very reasonable in space. Breakfast spread was very good too. Customer service was v poor - I asked about activities on a Sunday and they could not provide... More

Great location and comfortable room which near the commercial center of Zurich. Room 201, very large and confortable. Price a little high, with all included (Internet, frigobar, breakfast), about USD 600,00.

Great location and comfortable room which was nicely decorated and roomy. The hotel staff was very courteous and likable. Breakfast was nice but not great. Overall a very nice stay and a place I would return to should I again visit Zurich.
