I love this hotel. It is located one block from the river, in the heart of old town Zurich, on a cobblestone street that allows foot traffic only. It is surrounded by small shops, restaurants, and art galleries. If you are a walker, you will enjoy this great neighborhood.
The hotel its self is charming, and clean. I I travel alone, so it is important for me to find a place to stay where I feel safe and welcome. There is a small bar downstairs, with outdoor seating when the is warm. Very nice for meeting people and also people watching.
The staff is especially why I return. They are professional and helpful. Also genuine and very easy to converse with.
I include a few pics taken during my stay in Dec. One view of the hotel and one view taken from my balcony on the second floor.
