I had a good stay here. Good enough location at a decent price. Room and facilities were clean and accessible, wifi was a weak connection but good enough. We're able to provide me with an Australian-Swiss power adaptor from reception. Breakfast was delicious, local jam was very tasty.

If you don't mind walking for several minutes, this is a good hotel for you. I stayed with two friends, the room was big enough. The staff was nice and the room was clean. 15 from the old town. Zurich is quite expensive, and this hotel is cheaper than many others.

Was going to headline" cheap and cheerful". At 160 euros for a no frills triple room, the hotel is not cheap. By Zurich standards however for the central location the hotel is cheap. 15 minute walk from hauptbahnhof or 5min by trolley bus 32, the hotel is ideally situated for sight seeing. Be warned Zurich is expensive. As beer travellers... More

The hotel is located in a very lively and I would say interesting area in Zurich. Although the area is not anymore considered a "red light district", there are still a lot of bars and clubs. So you can expect to see buzzed people loitering around, and a few "streetwalkers" plying their trade, especially late at night, and yes lots... More

Zurich is an expensive city & it was a combination of budget & the convenience of having a staffed hotel that helped me pick this hotel. I couldn't have been happier. Centrally located it is very easy to get into the centre of Zurich. A quick bus ride & you are at the main train station. Some of the cheaper... More

Busy hotel in a lively part of Zurich probably not suitable for families or getting any work done, rooms too small and hot in the summer heat, noise until 3am and a local scene that might offend some. Interesting neighbourhood doing its best with lots of foliage and quiet 20kph roads, just a shame Rathaus was not on one of... More

Again a average hotel...I would not recommend for romantic couple because this is a more of old structure like heritage. People will like structure but feeling like town in a city. Place around this hotel is peaceful and quite scenic but even after considering that I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Temptation to try independents over known entities or chains is not without its risks. Bare painted concrete room; small, cold cheaply-equipped bathroom, tiny shower and a bed made from two singles with different height mattresses. Will be more selective with adventurous bookings in future, and not at all "value" on price comparison.

Myself & my partner have just returned from a weeks stay at hotel rothaus. He competed in a triathlon so we needed somewhere to stay which wasn't too far from the lake and a reasonable price. The hotel is clean, housekeeping made beds, emptied bins and provided fresh towels daily which was great and every member of staff we came... More

This hotel fit our needs for the one day layover in Zurich. It is close to everything and the staff is friendly and helpful. It felt more like a hostel with an en suite, which is fine for us (20-something graduate students). The hotel is located in the neighborhood with the most nightlife. It may not be too bad during...
