Stayed here for 1 night after a conference to relax in a small city with 2 colleagues. The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from the main train station in the old city. The hotel is in a very old building located near a city park in the old city. The location is excellent. The hotel has its own beer garden which is open until late at night and also serves good food. This is not a hotel for people who want to put their feet up and relax. However it is perfect for those who want to get up in the morning, see the sights and enjoy the day.
It is only 15 minutes from Zurich airport by train and less than 30 minutes from Zurich by the excellent Swiss rail network.
Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and windows you can open. Breakfast is an excellent continental affair. They also keep basic tourist information on Winterthur. There is obviously no lift in such an old building.
Even though the hotels own booking engine is in German, send an email in English and they will reply in English to discuss reservations. Some of the hotel staff’s English is limited however it does not affect making payments and basic requests. Staff are helpful.
This hotel is excellent value.
