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

This is small hotel located in the heart of old town, just 5 minutes walk from the Main Station. Perfect for exploring Zurich on foot. Please be aware, there was no fridge in the room. The first hotel we visited without the fridge...strange. However, the supermarket Coop is just stroll away, opposite Station, should you need some groceries or drinks.... More

This hotel is based in the old town. Good location. Prices are okay, beds could be a little more comfortable, but it is not too bad. rooms are okay and clean. But nothing too fancy. Maybe the hotel can be renovated in the future? price - value - quality overall okay if you do not fancy a luxury stay.

Good location.A short walk to railway station and near to tram which took us directly to airport. Also near to old town, which was great as we manage to visit places within a day before flying home. Would recommend this hotel to those visiting Switzerland ,using Zurich as lap before flight home.
