This hotel is well located being a short tram ride or 10 min walk from the charming old town and is also within walking distance of the maim railway station and the staff were all very polite. Afraid the positives emd there. The room was dated and in need of some redecoration to tidy it up, and it faced on... More

The staff were very nice and polite as are most people in Zürich however the hotel seemed extremely old. Everything looked clean but completely outdated including the lift which I had to be shown how to use as I'd never seen anything like it before. The location is brilliant. Right by the tram stop or a 10 minute walk from... More

Stayed here overnight in April with my children, and had a good experience. We were travelling back from Italy by train, and just needed a decent place to stay overnight, and this ticked the boxes.Room was good and quiet. Breakfast was a reasonable choice, and hotel is walking distance to the train station. Interesting area nearby, with a variety of... More

I stayed in this hotel in August - just needing a sleep for the night and no more than that. I found the hotel basic, but very clean and very adequate for my needs. Excellent location near the rail station and City centre. If you are not going to be spending much time in Zurich, this place is perfect. For... More

This is the worst hotel I ever stayed in Switzerland. It seems like travelling back time to the 70s or 80s, this was probably the last time the hotel has been renovated. The rooms are old and worn out. I first had a smoking room and demanded to change to a non-smoking room. However, the non-smoking room had such a... More

The hotel is was just fine for our needs. We aren't fussy or demanding. The room was clean and the proximity to the bus terminal and train station was very convenient. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The only drawback is the commuter trains come down the street at all hours and are VERY noisy, and a... More

We only stayed here as we flew into Zurich at night and needed to stay within a kilometre of the station and walk there dragging our suitcases. It was clean. But the rooms are tiny and stuffy, there is no aircon - there is a floor standing fan which we left on all night thank goodness. And we left early... More

this hotel is a remnant from a distant past which is unable to be determined. No airconditioning and laminate walls. the mini bar is locked because the normal resident cannot be trusted to pay after consuming the contents. It is about 10 mins walk from the railway station and seems clean but that is all that can be said for... More

Very bad experience at this hotel. Forgot an item in the room after checking out earlier to go to the shops at 10am and returned one hour later to collect my bags from storage at the concierge. Asked the concierge if I can go up to the room and collect the item I forgot and he said room has been... More
