Zurich is expensive and this is probably one of the cheapest hotels that is a reasonable distance to the main areas. It's not a bad hotel and I can't complain about the price we paid. The rooms were clean & spacious, bathroom was a bit small but the room felt a bit cold, maybe due to the lack of carpeting... More

In the end you get what you pay for. One of the cheapest hotels in Zurich, you will have to put up with the noise from the bars around the hotel. Bring ear plugs. Otherwise the place was clean and friendly staff. Location is convenient close by train station, but perhaps not in nicest part of town.

The hotel is surrounding with few pubs, so that's quite noisy in the night time. Request a higher floor room if you mind to sleep in a noisy condition. Other than that, reception n room condition are fine and worth for the price. Price of the room is not including the breakfast.

Been there twice, was given the suite on top. It's absolutely worth it, beautiful balcony w/view, super clear with lots of sunlight, nicely furnished...Incredibly pleasant for something in that price range. Quieter than normal rooms as well. But i've had the normal rooms, too and they're totally worth it. Yes, it's a noisy area - Langstrasse is nearby, all the... More

There is high volume music and and young people's screaming till late midnight time. It s very very bad cause you can't sleep. I couldn't understand how they gave permission to build up a hotel in such a bad place.

Given how expensive Zurich is, this hotel represents a good value. For US$100 I was given a large, basic, clean room. Breakfast was not included at this price. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful with information. I was permitted to check in several hours earlier than expected, with no hassle or extra charge. It is not centrally located, but... More

ZUrich is sooo expensive, so I knew that by booking one of the cheapest hotels on the web, I shouldn't expect much. But, it's still 3 times more than I usually pay in the states. This hotel was hard to find using Google maps, so don't do that. When we checked in the hotel we were told about the surrounding... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Location worked well for us as it is only 1.2kms from the main streets with great food options. Across the street from a convience store (preferred the Co - op however) and near the train station. Some posts say the area is unsafe, we didn't find this and the noise level was acceptable considering it... More

We stayed here because we had an 18 hour layover so we just basically checked in, changed, had a night on the town and then came back to sleep for 6 hours and showered. The room was very simple with not much decoration, but the beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated, but good enough for... More
