This is a lovely and very special little hotel! Don't let the name fool you - it's not only for women. It's a small hotel with very well designed and decorated rooms - completely charming. It's also a great value since hotels, particularly of good quality, tend to be very expensive in Zurich. My room (a step up from their... More

This design hotel was a nice stay. Me and my GF were in Europe and stayed between hotels and hostels. This was a nice break, very quite environment, breakfast was nice and the room was nice. My GF loved it, me...kind of impartial. No AC though. Nice location for walking to the lake, also not very far from public transportation... More

+ very friendly staff + good breakfast selection + quiet place + close to city center + very clean - rather small room and very small and hard bed (I am 1.97m tall) I enjoyed the stay at the Ladys First Design Hotel and can recommend it for a short stay.

We stayed at lady's first for 3 nights and found the hotel very conveniently located with 1 minute of the tram stop & max 10 minutes from central Zurich via tram. The rooms are really large and spacious though the bathrooms could have done with some extra space. Very friendly staff (reception & breakfast). Would definitely recommend if you don't... More

Great location, friendly staff. Beautiful old building with character features. The floor in our room was very creaky, it kept us amused trying not to step on the noisiest spots. Zurich is a beautiful city but very expensive. Easy city to get around.

Beautiful, well kept hotel in a lovely district of Zurich. The only reason I give it 4 out of 5 is due to the lack of tea, coffee and milk. There were herbal and English breakfast tea, but no milk and no coffee provided. Beware of the snacks not in the fridge that form part of the mini-bar prices! Read... More

We left for the airport early and were very pleased to be able to have coffee and croissants before leaving. The room was large and clean and the beds very comfortable. We were very pleased that there was a good lift and a lift to take the cases from the street to reception.

Came with my wife and our mothers, basically as a treat for a birthday. The location is great - especially if you have a full Swiss pass, since there is a tram stop just around the corner and the lake and leafy, tree-lined walks by it were more or less opposite. Quiet location when we went. Parquet floors throughout are... More

I booked this hotel with my brother and best friend staying there also. Even though the hotel caters to women, the reviews and blogs were spot on in noting that men can and do stay there. I absolutely loved the feminine touch that was brought to the hotel. They absolutely thought of everything most women would think of having when... More
