This is nice Bauhaus style hotel, located in a nice area 5 minutes by tram (Lines 9 and 10) from the Main Train Station (Haupbanhof). People at the front desk is correct (swiss are friendly and polite people, but sometimes a bit too cold), some of them can give better information than others.
The Pros: they have free Internet in two computers: one is located in the lobby and one in a business center in the second floor. They have a printer there too, just in case you need to print something.
The other Pro: breakfast is great, and it is serverd in a lovely terrace. They have several kind of charcuterie, good swiss cheeses, home made jam made of different berries, cereals, assorted breads, yoghurt, etc. You will not need lunch after that.
Now the bad things: rooms are too small (althought lovely decoration), and EXTREMELY HOT!!! Althought the temperature dropped down outside to 22 degrees Celsius during the night (70 Farhenheit), the room stayed so warm during all the night that I almost couldn't sleep the four nights I stayed there.
The rooms that you get booking by Expedia are the ones facing the street. The street is nosy, due to the tram that runs from 5 AM to 1 AM, so we couldn't have the window open neither.
I tried to change for a room looking to the quiet back street, but they wanted to charge me 50 extra US dollars (and we still would not get A/C), so we didn't accepted.
My conclusion: it is a nice hotel if you stay from September to May. Avoid it in summer.
