The main appeal of this hotel is it wonderful location. It is 1 block from the Hauptbahnhof and convenient to everything in the old downtown area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but on the small side. This hotel is an excellent value, especially considering the location. WiFi is available in the lobby area but the signal is weak in...

We stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is quite near the train station, Zurich HB, and not difficult to find. There are supermarket, buses and trams nearby. There's Starbucks beside it and a street full of restaurants. The room is clean and has a toilet. The staffs were very friendly too. However, it can be quite noisy at night... More

If one is traveling through Europe on train, then hotel is a good choice for those overnight stays. It is literally within 5-7 minutes walking distance from the Zurich HB train station. Has a super market round the corner and an entire lane of restaurants to choose from. You wont be spoilt for food choice as there are enough and... More

We stayed here one night while passing through Zurich. We booked it because it's close to the train station and river. The room was nice. Compared to other places we stayed in Europe, the bathroom is huge! The bed was pretty comfortable and good for a one-night stay. Location was great to walk around the city.

We stayed there for 3 nights. The rooms are big and clean. There is no AC but we had a ventilator in the room. Also we could not see a ventilation system in the bathroom. Also no dryer. But I think no AC and no dryer was mentioned in the description. The big plus LOCATION. Literally max.10 min. from Zurich... More

The hotel is 1 minute away from the train station and very close to Zurich's top attractions and shops. You also have a supermarket right across the street, restaurants and coffee shops nearby. The staff was very friendly and we also enjoyed the room - the furniture was old fashioned, but it was very clean, quiet, comfortable and had a... More

An acceptable place for the budget traveler. It's a little short on charm, and my room was a bit musty. But everything worked; the breakfast was quite good; and the location simply can't be beat as it is right in the heart of the city just steps from the main train station and the old city.

This is a good basic hotel, good value for money. A few minutes walk from Zurich HB station and the Central tram stops are right outside the door. Room was clean and comfortable. A 2 minute walk from the old town and the area with many restaurants. Very good location. Free Wifi didn't work very well in our room. We... More

This is a typical town centre hotel with most prople only staying a night or two. It is adequate for the purpose and the rooms are clean and fairly spacious. We found the duvets too heavy,. We didn't sample breakfast. At least 8 tram routes stop within feet of the front door. and one stop away from the Main station.... More
