“Very Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We stayed for two nights and we loved it. Perfect location, nice rooms, good service. Although, I have to mention that the rooms are pretty small, but it was not a big deal for us. We liked everything about this hotel. Next time we go to Zurich will definitely stay at the Townhouse.

Given the high cost of everything in Zurich, the Townhouse Boutique Hotel is a welcome sight!
The hotel is located within 2 blocks of the train station, but not in a noisy location. The hotel is very unique in its approach as the rooms occupy the majority of a secured building which shares space with some offices. Key card to get in and out after hours was a nice, secure move.
The staff was great and took the time to explain their open concept where you can borrow DVD's, enjoy free morning coffee, upgrade room if possible (which was essential during a heat wave, considering only 2 rooms have A/C currently). The beds were the best we experienced during our trip. Honor bar in the lobby as well. No staff from 11pm to 7am, but that was not a problem after letting them know our schedule and plans.
With that said, Zurich is not cheap, so if you are looking for a spotless, unique hotel with great staff - consider this hotel!

This hotel was great given that it's less than a 5 minute walk to the train station so in that sense it was a perfect place for us to stay. Our fault that we didn't notice that they didn't have AC. One of our two rooms had a fan but it was a little uncomfortable sleeping. A bit of a gamble with weather in the summer. Otherwise it was clean and nicely appointed.

A stylish but no frills boutique hotel. It was clean, quirky, stylish and quiet and perfect for a first-time weekend visit to Zurich very close to the station. don't expect any luxuries - no mini-bar fridge in room, and no air conditioning but we had a good fan, which was sufficient. You probably won't find many other places of this standard at this price range in Zurich. and thank you for the complimentary upgrade to a larger double bedroom!

Traveling often for work, this hotel was a breath of fresh air. The staff was most pleasant, professional and helpful. Walking into the room, I felt at home instantly taken by the details such as the quirky wallpaper and furnishing. The location is just perfect, next to Zurich HB, very centrally located to go for a swim in the lake or river, or to wander through town.
Ok, so the hotel does not have AC, open up the windows and get over it. Be grateful for great summer days in the more orthern part of Europe!

Room Tip: During summer ask for a room on the 1st or 2nd floor, since the weather can be warm and the hotel do...

Location is the abolsute plus. Located only a block away from "Hauptbanhoff" is in the center of this beautiful city. It is clean and quite well furnished/decorated. The personnel was kind. On the negative side though my room was very small and no Air Condition (!!!!). Although in July, I was lucky and the weather was mild. If it was hot I would have to open the window to "enjoy" the smells of the lower floor Korean restaurant and the noise of the cozy side street... The "lobby" / reception is at the 5th floor (I really wonder if this would be a Guiness record...) while the breakfast is less than basic. For all those reasons I feel that the value for money factor is not in favor unless one is on a budget and city center location is a must ...

The hotel was brilliant. A short pleasant walk from the main railway station, super friendly and helpful check-in and finally a really spacious room with everything we needed. My first trip to Zurich but loved the city and this hotel so will be back.
