The main reason for us to choose Townhouse Boutique hotel was that it was very very closed to the train station and at a reasonable cost, We were traveling with party of 5 people including one child and one infant and so the top priority was convenient location.
When we arrived at Zurich, we walked to the hotel from Zurich HB Railway station. With four 20kg+ luggage and two kids, obviously it wasn't easy but luckily we can pull the luggage on wheels all the way to the hotel without the need to go up or down any steps.
We went up to the reception situated on the 5th Floor of the building and we were greeted with a very friendly and helpful staff. We booked two rooms. Out of the staff own initiative, the staff in the hotel upgraded one of our room , so that the two rooms are next of each other. We went to our room and before we rolled our languages into our room, we couldn't resist taking our camera out and took photographs. The rooms were very beautifully decorated. It is also good in size (I must say the room was little bigger than expected ,Originally I did have a expectation of a smaller room because it is “Boutique hotel)
The hotel is situated just off Bahnhof strasse the main shopping street of Zurich, the good bit is everything is at close proximity, not so good is the view of the room. Our room’s windows do face the office block in the next building. The issue can be easily solved by drawing the blind. Anyway with the beautifully decorated room you don’t really need a windows’ view!
We went to Zurich in second week of June and we do need to cool off the room by opening the windows in the evening. A fan was provided but for us we didn’t really need it. We didn’t see air-condition in the room but there were radiator for the winter.
Everything was perfect for this hotel, the location is great, both rooms are good in size, friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely stay in this hotel again if I came to Zurich. The only advice I have was to book earlier and hope to get a slightly cheaper deal next time.
