Credit to the staff who kindly moved me to a more sheltered room, but there is no getting away from the fact that this hotel suffers in the summer months from a lack of air con.

I was a guest at this property for a night (29th June - 30th June). The hotel is well located, with the river being right across the property and Bahnhofstrasse just a short walk away. The room size is quite spacious too. However it all went downhill when the air conditioning in my room didn't work. The reception was uncooperative... More

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel and everything was great! We had junior suite on the 4th floor with 4 balconies with excellent view of Lake Zurich. Hotel staff were all nice and helpful. Close to the tram, train station and nice restaurants. We even walked to old town and everywhere. Great stay. Highly recommended!!!

Great view and nice location on the lake. 1960's style entrance and lobby in the same building as a car dealership which is certainly quirky. Plain but comfortable room and slightly old fashioned bathroom. Very good breakfast buffet. Pretty good value for money.

The hotel is on the waterfront of the Zurich Lac; make sure you ask for a lake front room. They have a small balcony which made it possible to smoke. The location is on walking distance of the old town, opera (5 minutes) and the Central Station (25 minutes). Breakfast is great; many different choices. Rooms are big. Only thing... More

We made last minute reservations for 2 nights at this hotel, and it was an excellent choice. The hotel is located right by the Zurich Opera House and sits looking over Lake Zurich.

There are certainly other, more architecturally appealing and charming hotels in Zurich. However, the view from the room balcony overlooking Zurichsee makes this hotel outstanding for location. Otherwise the level of decoration, finishing, cleanliness and comfort of the room are excellent. The service is also very courteous. The 10 minute leisurely walk to the old town is made all the...

Want to buy a new Audi or VW? Searching for the entrance to the restaurant entrance, one is distracted by the tempting offers to buy a new car with showrooms to either side of the entrance. A bit odd. On a Monday, not much seems to be going on. A quiet table, a good and varied menu selection, and attentive... More
