This is at least our fourth time staying at this hotel. It is an excellent hotel for the money - great location, very clean, very nice breakfast, free wifi, etc. The last 3 times we have stayed in a room in the adjacent building. I like that because I think it is quieter. Some people do not because they have... More

we found this hotel by internet lookin at other guests' opinion and we thing it's absolutely perfect for a short stay. Just a walk distance from Zurich Central Station and the old town and with a private parking at a very reasonable fare (5 CHF DAILY). Breakfast was served in very clean and confortable dining room with a quite rich... More

Zurich is incredibly expensive - this hotel was about the best price I could find for a one night stay before flying home. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very helpful woman who also helped us arrange for a shuttle to the airport early the next morning - and allowed us to pay our whole bill (provided we didn't...

Arrived from the airport by train. It's a short walk from the train station, just over the bridge and up the hill for a couple of stairs. If you have heavy baggage, use the slope just 100m on Seilergraben. The staff is very nice and the room in the upper floor was big enough for us. Traffic noise wasn't an... More

Cheep relative to other choices of course. Zurich is an expensive town and the rate at this place is a reflection of that fact more than of anything else. Having said that the place is clean, cozy and close to everything Zurich has to offer. Like most of the places in Zurich it does not have a central AC. We... More

This hotel is located near the centre of Zurich shopping area and is within easy walking distance of the main railway station, over the bridge to Central and then take a right turn at the Lindt billboard. Staff were very helpful. Room was clean, large and very comfortable. Bottle water was supplied in the hallway. Excellent hotel and the room... More

The location is right in the center but one street up so is is... More

This hotel is located just out of the main city centre, but within easy walking of the entire downtown section of Zurich. Modern amenities, huge rooms, clean, open and very comfortable. Hard to beat this for value in Zurich.

Traveling three weeks abroad with more one night stands than longer stays tends to confuse one about which was what and where, if you see what I mean. The St Josef in Zurich is within walking distance of the rail station, though it's a bit tricky to find for the first-time visitor - look UP! I knew I was in... More

Clean, modern, good location, near University. No air-condition - had to get 2 fans. (City doesn't have the breezes the alps have). Within walking distance of train station. On the edge to Old Town close to the river. I'm 65 yrs. and walked everywhere! If I can do it so can you. Great shopping & eating & sites. Room has... More
