Located in the old town, st Josef's is a short wall to the main train station and the shopping district. You may want to ask for a rear room as the trams beginning running at 5AM. It is a steep walk up stairs from the main street. Not a hot breakfast but very good selection of breads, cheeses and fruits.... More

Just spent two days at this hotel. By the rest of the world standards it is not value for money, but by Zurich standards very good. The room was clean, bright and spacious. The bed was very comfortable although the pillows were a little small. The bathroom was clean and functional but the shower was a little crazy with water... More

Located approximately 20 minutes walk from station with suitcases (the last 10 minutes up hill and stairs). Hotel is close to major sites and restaurants in the old town area. We had a relax double room in the Annex building which is only 20 metres from the main building and restaurant. Room (810) was large and well appointed. The bathroom... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in 2 adjacent rooms with our children and enjoyed ourselves a lot. The reception lady was very helpful with information and got us a hotel parking space. We never heard any traffic noise or other guests and slept well on the very comfortable beds. Breakfast was tasty and there was a good variety of... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and had a great room (424), lots of space, modern decor, very clean. Located above (up a ramp) and just across the street from the northernmost point of the old town, (at the moment overlooking at some distance a small, non-threatening and discrete area which seemed to be a mini red light district). Close... More

After traveling overnight by plane and then taking the train into Zurich, arriving at the hotel at 10 am and being eagerly welcomed and escorted to an already available room was such a nice treat. The hotel itself is a bit quirky in layout, but the rooms are quite nice. Having two fans in the room, especially on the hot... More

We arrived from the airport / train station at 8:00am. We went to St. Josef to drop off our bags then figure out what to do until check in time. The nice English speaking guy on reception said he could have a room ready in 30 minutes. He organised for us to have complementary tea and coffee while we waited... More

We've been here several times, and we very much like this hotel and the employees. They have always been kind and helpful in every situation. For expensive Zurich this hotel is a welcome relief! My only regret is that we spend only 1 night before we fly home the next day!

The price we booked for was overridden. Nice staff, very helpful, good breakfast, no air conditioning. Have to say it was a gigantic room compared to other doubles we experienced in Europe. Nothing wrong with this hotel but nothing makes it stand out either.

We stayed here one night before flying back to the states the next day. We got to Zurich by train, and a tram outside the train station got us to within 200 yards of the hotel. The hotel is located two blocks from old town, where great restaurants are on almost every corner. The staff was great and very helpful.... More
