Booked online and arrived jet lagged in 27° the room was clean and comfortable . close to s/markets and cafe s/ restaurants Breakfast was wonderful the next morning. But the service let's this hotel down . There is so much potential to be fantastic. But the guy @ front desk was as helpful as a chocolate teapot

Friendly staff. The reception staff shows us clearly the major attractions in Zurich and he behaves friendly at all time. The room is not a big one but bed and bathroom are clean and tidy. Shampoo and hair dryer included. For surroundings, there is a Coop Supermarket. A bit far away from Zurich City Center (Approx. 35 min walking duration)... More

This hotel is well placed for access to public transport but is not really walking distance to the city centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. The price was reasonable by Swiss standards, but the rate did not include breakfast. I could not eat enough to justify paying the extra for breakfast, but there is... More

We spent one night in Zurich on our way back to Germany and found it as a reasonable price as it can be in Switzerland. Stayed in the junior suite which was nice size and clean. Location was not really close to anywhere but next to tram station which takes ~15min to get you main station (tram #3) or lake... More

Below decent because of the lack of free internet (this is 2014!), general bad insulation between rooms (you'll never feel alone), and from outside (tram line and busy road), and average cleanliness. Also you'll be treated to the sound of pipes in the wall, which in my case went on all night. Feels like being transported back to the 70s.... More

The hotel is about a 10 minute tram ride from the city center and in an area where there really isn't much to do. The hotel hosts quite a few small rooms, however upon my arrival, I was upgraded to a suite...room #209. The suite was lovely...but not the norm. It had a large king sized bed with 2 additional...

The Hotel is near stations for tram 2 and 3 so it is easy to go anywhere from there. The sound isolation is pretty bad and if you have a loud neighbor, you will not get lots of sleep. Breakfast is OK, but staying more than a few days it gets repetitive. It is probably the best value for money... More
