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.

Ended a trip through the alps here with a fine hotel an easy walk from the train station. A modern, clean and spacous room with a basic breakfast. The desk staff went out of their way to answer any number of questions about the city, transport and quick city tour on a quiet Sunday. Highly recommended.

We were 2 couples that took a Viking River cruise that ended in Basel and completed our trip with 3 nights in Zurich. We booked our 2 rooms in July 2014 after searching for a decent price, clean, good location and a good reviews hotel. I did the research and made the reservation. Hoping that I had made a good...

This hotel is perfect to spent a week-end in Zurich. It's located in the city center, very close to the main shopping road and not far from the train station. Rooms are clean and a good breakfast is included in the room price. Private parking it's available.

We stayed with my family for 3 days at St. Josef, an excellent location for visiting Zurich City neighborhood, close for walking around and visiting the key places. It is also close to restaurants of all kinds. The hotel itself is very nice, clean rooms and bathrooms (no bathtub for those who like it, but a good shower). The hotel... More

Location: We booked a room in Sept 2014 at St Joseph knowing NOTHING about Zurich, and having absolutely zero intel except from what we read on TripAdvisor (of course!). The hotel got great reviews, but we were clueless as far as location, or what we wanted to do. We just wanted to explore some of Switzerland after a trip through... More
