Booked a two bedroom apartment with these folks via Booking.com. Yes, the price is great but what I really wanted was an apartment where we (husband, late teen children and I) could relax after a day of touring. Imagine our shock when we arrived to find the our two bedroom apartment was not an apartment at all. It was a... More

An odd one this; as mentioned in other reviews, there is no reception and entry is by keying in your booking reference. Facilities are restricted to a very large room, beds, table and chair, tv and bathroom. Modern and in good condition, but almost a look into the future where there is no human contact and everything automated. Not for... More

This was a nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel located about 2 miles from the Zurich train station and a couple of blocks off a tram line. However, it requires self check-in and the process could be cumbersome. The check-in process requires you to have the last five digits of your hotel booking number to be entered into a lock-box mechanism... More

Normally it is impossible to stay in Zurich for less than about 200 francs per night - and if you can find a room for less than CHF 100, it is the sort of place that would rent by the hour. Gertrudestrasse Guesthouse is therefore really special: a solid 3-4 star accomodation at a 2-star price. They save money by... More

I will never book a hotel room with Venere.com They bump up the price and consequently you do not pay what has been quoted at the time of booking. I recommend anyone to book with Booking.com as you always pay what is quoted. Nothing more, nothing less. If you are expecting a good night sleep then do not book a... More

This hotel is situated in a quiet area, 5min walk from the animated Langstrasse. It is well furnished, quiet and very clean. I have read some reviews before, so to be clear, this is not a place to spend your day or cook with your family, it's a place to sleep. How can they make it so cheap ? Thre's... More

This guesthouse has a perfect Location downtown Zurich, and perfect for a Budget traveller, as rates are really very interesting.

True that is half the price of any other room you can find in Zurich, and this should say a lot. Nonetheless the pictures showed nice studios with kitchen, spacious rooms and toilet. Well I am now in a room which is about 9 sqm (incl. bathroom), which has no kitchen, facing the parking place so I cannot open the... More

User review: Be aware WI-Fi Non existent over 5 days. This was really very poor as this was my main reason for choosing this apartment. Had iPads so plug in internet useless. Glass table broken - could not put anything on it for fear of it falling. Towels very small and not changed in 5 days. There were no glasses,... More

There are only two parking spots dedicated to the 4 story guesthouse. No wonder they are all occupied. I tried calling customer service (since there is no reception) to find out where else I could park and at first I was told that there are no parking facilities (even though on the reservation it says - parking available) and then...
