We are enjoying Lucerne from the Rothaus base. This is a clean and well run hotel. Breakfast is continental, fresh fruit, some days, yoghurt and lovely rolls as well as scrambled eggs. We are here with large group and have benefitted from a separate breakfast room just for us.Rooms are clean and furnished simply and the bathrooms vary. Ours has... More

I have spent a night in this hotel. In the beginning I was very happy with the location but few minutes later I found it awful place. There are too many stairs after leaving elevator and before finding your room, so very difficult to carry your luggage to your room and no one is there to helping you. The room... More

Location of this hotel is in the middle of the Langstrasse. Some refer to it as the Red Light District, others call it a trendy multicultural hotspot. Hotel has a friendly and bit alternative staff. Rooms are simple. Mattresses are a bit stiff but good enough. The major disadvantage of this hotel is the noisy street, and the thin walls,... More

Zurich is not cheap. However, this hotel was on the cheaper end without going hostel style. We upgraded to a larger room which was good with a infant which needed a cot. A great hotel if you want to be close and have a full itinerary by day. On the downside, it was a bit difficult to get into with... More

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.
