This hotel advertises that it has air conditioning but it doesnt. Staff were great and found a fan as the day and room were very hot. Couldnt fault staff they were excellent. Room was small but adequate and very clean. If we opened window to let air in it was too noisey.

Dear Jim S Thank you very much for rating us on Trip Advisor. It is very interesting to hear what people think about our hotel. Our Hotel is located in the heart of Zurich, only 5 minutes walking distance to the main station. So we cannot avoid noise, when you open a window. This summer was abnormal hot in Switzerland....

If you are a lover of arts and theatre, this is the hotel for you to stay. The room was decorated with photos from old theatres and there was even a booklet full of information of Swiss theatre. The hotel is located right behind the polybahn station, as you get off the tram at Central stop. It is nice hotel,... More

I liked the hotel, I liked the location, easily reached from the main railway station in the lovely old town near the river, I liked the staff (except perhaps the scary breakfast lady who brought us one cup of tea and didn't offer us another), I liked the umbrellas available to borrow, I didn't like the restaurant or bar not...

I read the previous post from the manager asking a guest to reserve a deluxe room to ensure their is air conditioner in the room and booked an expensive 'deluxe' room. I even stated on my reservation that I was expecting A/C. After checking into my room, discovered that this 'deluxe' room had no air conditioning and was barely bigger... More

There were many good things about the hotel such as a fantastic location and view of funicular railway both from room and breakfast. The staff were nice and decor interesting and a really good place to stay. The only negative was the room itself which was a bit small and far too warm and we were unable to cool it... More

Dear Stephen H thank you for sharing your experience on trip advisor. It is true we are perfectly located in the centre of Zurich. The last weeks there was a heat wave in Switzerland and we had temperatures over 35°C, abnormal for Zurich. And in the room you booked there was apparently no AC. For you next stay with us... More

We arrived before 11am, pretty exhausted after a long-haul flight, hoping to be able to at least just drop our luggage so we could start exploring (and try to stay awake!). But reception very kindly told us to sit and wait a minute while our room was made up, and we could then check-in immediately. So kind! Our room was... More

This hotel in central Zurich is very convenient for the train station, being just a 5 minute walk away. As you leave the station, just walk over the river bridge and you will see Starbucks to your right. The hotel is just behind Starbucks. The reception area is small, as are the bedrooms and ensuite, but they have everything that... More

We were travelling by train and it was a 5 min stroll from the station. Funky hotel with decent breakfasts and great location for visiting Zurich. Friendly staff - would definitely stay there again for an overnight or weekend break.

The hotel was nice (clean, had what I needed); however, it states that the rooms have "cooling systems" when in actuality, it's a very, very low fan on the baseboard under the window. Barely moves the air and it's not Air Conditioning. I was there when it was 90 degrees and the room was unbearable. They brought up a fan,... More

Dear tlbogue Thank you for your honest feedback about your stay. We appreciate every feedback. It is true we only have AC in higher room categories like Mini Suite and Deluxe room.

We booked as it we close to the station and public transport spent 3 nights there and would recommend. Nice bars and Restaurants just down the road. Very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. You can ask for a fan for your room as there is no aircon as per swiss law.
