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

The hotel is very well situated close to the Old Town. Clean and well-appointed rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, and a good breakfast. Zurich is an expensive city so it might be challenging to find a hotel of this quality for less at such a good location.

This is a great place to stay with a great location convenient to everything. The staff is so helpful and the breakfast is delicious and homemade. The rooms were very clean and spacious. I would definitely stay here again.

Great staff fabulous breakfast. We will stay there again when we return to Zurich. We had to stay in two room since we are 5. They arranged for the kids to stay in the same floor so we could be close by. Very accommodating.

Trying to find a reasonably priced, central hotel is a challenge in Zurich but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hotel St Josef. Within 10 min walk of train station, 3 min from old town, 10 min from shopping, free water dispenser on every floor, buffet style continental breakfast, tea/coffee in the room, spotlessly clean, quiet, spacious rooms, it has everything...
