We stayed just one night. It is a small hotel situated in the center of the city. Breakfast and the rooms were modest. The staff was the best asset of this hotel: polite, helpful and very smiling. The price was a little bit expensive considering the star level of the hotel.

Zurich has a reputation for being very expensive. And it doesn't take long for a non-Swiss visitor to realize that the city's reputation is well earned. So I give the Hotel St. Josef four stars just for having rates that are reasonable for the average middle class person. The rooms, of course, are small but are efficiently designed to make... More

Nice hotel, short distance (Easy walk) From the city Centre, and shops. Room is modern, and supprisingly large for European standards. Breakfast was included, but no hot breakfast. Car park also nearby. Certainly stay there again.

We stayed here for a stopover on our ski holidays to Austria. We loved the hotel from the moment we entered the reception and the friendly receptionist Katharina welcomed us. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable and modern. There was a nice view from our room, the breakfast is simple but delicious.

This is a family run hotel near the main railway station, up a hill and not very well known. It is quiet, friendly and the rooms are excellent. Prices are very good for Zurich and the breakfast will leave you not needing much lunch, if any. The beds are second to none, the place is toasty warm in the winter... More
