We stayed at this hotel as part of our Swiss tour. The location is one of the best. Exactly next to the river and borders the old town. The hotel is a small boutique hotel . We got two connecting rooms, one standard and the other a junior suite. Both rooms were clean and had nothing to complain about. I... More

Although I had a brief stay, I found the hotel location, staff, the room (overall facilities) and the breakfast excellent. An enjoyable stay, a perfect destination for both business and surely - due to his location - for an easy discovery of Zurich.

I booked this through Booking.com for CHF260. That includes wifi, breakfast (excellent Birchermüsli by the way), entry to a gym round the corner, free dring at the bar, anything from the minibar and tea/coffee in the room. Compared to the lower budget hotels in, for example, the Old Town which are typically a tad over CHF200 a night this really... More

This is my preferred hotel in Zürich when traveling in business trips. The bedrooms are huge, the beds are great, very large windows also The breakfast is good and the waiters/waitresses are very likable. The only suggestion would be to include better croissants or a home cake The localization is just perfect: in the middle of the town

Stayed for two nights whilst in Zurich on business. Better than Premier Inns in UK but then at £200 per night so it should be. Large Room but shower over bath which I never like. Meant to be a double bed but actually two singles pushed together and they hadn't even bothered to provide one large duvet instead they left... More

Average hotel, nothing special. Great part is the price! I was traveling for business and had a hard time finding something in Zurich for under $700 USD per night. This place was reasonably priced. Bathrooms are nice, rooms are clean. Nothing fancy but fine for business travel. Hotel Restaurant was the best part - great food! Hotel bar... very small.... More
