The room, as well as the corridor had a terrible smell of cigarettes. They showed us another room on another... More

This hotel offers good value for money in a very expensive city. The staff are friendly and the rooms clean although a touch on the small side. The hotel offers a good breakfast and is located 5 minutes from the train station and minutes from downtown attractions in Zurich

Stayed here for 3 nights prior to a tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the room style, and though on the small side, was thoughtfully laid out and I wasn't bumping into things. Very clean and tidy, plenty of coat hangers (not like some hotels), and attended by cheerful housekeeping staff promptly each morning. Had room 401 which backed onto... More
