I stayed here on a recent visit to Zurich. It was our first stop of the trip. We arrived around 10 in the morning and our room was ready which was a pleasant surprise. The staff was VERY helpful giving us tips for exploring the city and answering all questions! The room was perfect size for what we wanted. The... More

Trying to find a reasonably priced, central hotel is a challenge in Zurich but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hotel St Josef. Within 10 min walk of train station, 3 min from old town, 10 min from shopping, free water dispenser on every floor, buffet style continental breakfast, tea/coffee in the room, spotlessly clean, quiet, spacious rooms, it has everything...

I was in Zurich on a one day business trip. At first it looked that finding a hotel is easy, however when I started comparing room prices with the rooms apprearnce I was quite surprised. The "cheap" hotels (under 200€ a night) looked somewhat shabby, the expensive ones (over 200€) were too expensive but looked quite good. And then I... More

A modest hotel, very close to the centre of Zurich representing very good value for the price. Only a 2-3 minute walk from the old part of the city and only a few minutes more to the main rail station. No frills, clean and well run. A good continental breakfast buffet was included in our tariff, but we did not... More

We have stayed at the St Josef several times and keep going back every time we stopver in Zurich. Very well priced (by Zurich standards) and close to the main HBF train station and tram stop (7-10 minutes walk). A taxi from the station costs $10-15 if you have heavy bags - as it is a bit of an uphill... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week recently and it was a great experience. Nothing bad to say. Very quiet and the staff is very friendly. It is modest but in a great way. If you don't need excessive amenities and just want a comfortable place to stay, this is perfect. It is very convenient to the main train... More

The rooms are clean and very quiet, but do not offer any unneeded luxury. The hotel is well located and within walking distance of the university. The staff is friendly and helpful. If we would visit Zurich again, I would definitely go back to this hotel.

Stayed for business for several days. The University of Zurich, downtown shopping, and train station are short walks.Also a short walk to the grocery store. Important to note that even though the walk is short (5-10 min) there is a portion that has stairs (hotel is on the side of a hill). So you must be able to walk up... More

This is an excellent choice for sightseeing. The hotel is just a couple of blocks away from the centre of town but its raised position means it's quiet. We had a triple room which was very generously sized with a big sofa bed for our son. The bathroom is small but spotless. Our room in the annexe overlooked the front... More

The location is just a 5 minute walk from the train station, and near everything in central Zurich. We walked everywhere easily. The room was big and nicely decorated with a modern feel. I would definitely stay here again.
