Hotel is near central station and accessable via tram or taxi (expensive). Room was very tidy, hotel team very friendly and obliging, prices are Zurich-like. Insufficient Wlan in room but good access in lobby and hallway (top-level). Breakfast which was included (big plus) had big variety and very good service. Recommended!

I stayed at the Hotel St. Josef for one night in September. I planned to walk from the train station to the hotel (mapping it, it looked very reasonable). What I didn't anticipate was that the hotel was up a large hill, and there were steps I had to drag the bags up! It's do-able, but if you have a... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip through Switzerland. It is a small property, & the room was on the small side, but it was finished & furnished in modern decor & had everything required. All of the front desk staff that we interacted with were very helpful with directions & advice, & the breakfast was very good... More

good location, quiet, close to old downtown without being noisy, very nice rooms, charming place with friendly staff. We were only there for one night but I would definitely make this my first choice next time.

This is located just next to the Niederdorf area. Can't be better as a tourist. Banhofstrasse is just few minutes away. The hotel is well furnished. The staff is very courteous. Can't get better. Great value for money in Zurich. Really enjoyed my stay. Huge recommend.

Pleasant staff who accommodated us as much as possible after a 3 hour delayed flight and misdirected luggage by Swiss Air. Dinner at the restaurant was wonderful, thank you. The room was spotless and the comfortable bed was appreciated.

This is a very pleasant hotel which is located a short walk from the centre. The decor is quite simple, but everything is clean and comfortable. It's not cheap, but nothing in Zurich is. A generous and quality breakfast was included.

the staff at the hotel were great, allowing us to book into our room early was great after a long flight. The staff made our stay very pleasurable. The location was good for catching the train and walking around the town. our room was large, clean and suited us for one night. Zurich is not cheap to stay.

Located in a quiet area I could sleep with open windows. Walking distance from the central station. Very good welcome at the reception. However compared to the price, rooms are quite little, you can hear noises from the corridor and nothing special for the breakfast.

Stayed there only for a day. Very quiet rooms spacious and clean. I stayed in the main quarter. Very close to the train station and trams. Reception staff were kind and breakfast was nice. Nothing over the top. Will stay there again but hopefully I will get to see some of the city next time.
