We are on our way home so this is a one night stop. The room is very clean and modern. The bath is clean and modern but no bath tub. Ten minutes from the Zurich train station. Nice bed and linens We found the desk staff to be friendly and helpful.

We are very impress for location, it's not far from Zurich HB (about 7 minutes). The reception staffs are friendly and helpful when we requested hot water and asked information. The room is clean and modern style. The breakfast is very good especially salmon. We would definitely go back to stay this hotel.

Lovely little hotel well within walking distance of the railway station and restaurants. Very friendly staff and a very large room and bathroom. We had a room overlooking the street but noise wasn't an issue. Breakfast is included in the room rate and although there is not a huge choice it is adequate. (Cereals, yoghurt, muesli, cheese, cold meats, boiled... More

This was a very convenient location in the centre of the old town near the railway station and bus and tram routes. We had a room facing onto the road which was fairly noisy due local traffic and bars. The weather was quite warm and we found it difficult to sleep due to the heat (even though it was only... More

Outstanding and very accomodating staff with great breakfast (continental style). Ask for a inner courtyard room as the outside street rooms can be noisy. Only downer was no control over room temperature with the AC unit as it operates based on temp outside, not in room! In the summer months this may not be a problem but for April it... More

The reason this hotel got three stars is because of the comments at the end. I wanted to point out the good first, and then maybe the relative stuff last. Location**: Ideal location in Zurich, next to main train station and old town. Lots of stores and restaurants. I used this as a central hub to see Switzerland. However, if... More

We stayed 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect - the train station was only 5-10 mins. walk and we found the transportation system to be superb. You don't need a car as everywhere is accessible by train, tram, bus or boat. The same ticket covers all modes of transport. Our day trips included Luzern, from... More

Very close to the station- just around the corner if you go out of the right exit. Very clean and modern rooms (think feature walls, dark wood floors etc).
