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

I was visiting for work and my hosts picked this hotel. It was a great base of operations for visiting town. It is very close to the train station, easily walkable without luggage, but even with luggage is reasonable. Alternatively, you can take the #3 tram right from the station. I recommend the stop that goes a bit past the... More

We wanted an overnight stay in Zurich when we arrived in January 2015 before leaving via train to our next destination in Europe after a long flight from Bangkok. What a nice surprise this hotel was, close to the main train station (only a ten minute walk) and the room we were given was very, very quiet (both of us... More

The 5 of us (Mom, Dad, Son, 11, Daughter,7, and Grandma) arrived on New Years Eve, by van. We turned in the van and enjoyed our 1 night stay at this nice, clean hotel. After breakfast the next morning, we walked to the central train station, where we got the train to Zermatt for 3 days. The staff was gracious... More

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
