“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is an high quality hotel in the heart of Zurich. Within walking distance of the train station, shops, restaurants and bars, there is plenty to see and do. The hotel is well appointed, and the rooms are spacious. The staff were very helpful and attentive. Definitely a no hassle experience.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

My wife and I stayed 6 nights at this hotel recently. We received a complimentary upgrade upon check-in as well as a complimentary drink due to our Accor membership, which was great. The fresh apple juice in the lobby is excellent, and we ended up having a cup whenever we left or returned to the hotel. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is good, and is a short walk to the Old Town and Railway Station, plus trams run right outside the hotel. For all that the hotel offers, the hotel's 3 for 2 deals are fantastic value for Zurich, which is an extremely expensive city. The only negative point was housekeeping. Toiletries were not replenished unless asked, and some days the room was not made up at all despite repeated requests. I would definitely stay here again though, except I would be super vigilant about housekeeping issues!

Stayed there 3 days. Very central location with extra easy access to main train station is a huge plus. What could be a potential minus is a small bathroom but design melts nicely. Breakfast was good although just a small remark on supplies - why would you serve "natural" yogurts with sugar added when there is so many delicious things you can find in Switzerland (also fruit ones had more sugar in it than fruits). However overall all was ok. What really impressed me most was a front desk staff. Great approach. I loved their attitude - very very professional. Would stay there again.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in the first week of August 2013. We walked to the hotel from the Zurich HB train station and it didn't feel too far. The English-speaking staff at the reception was cordial and we were offered a room upgrade owing to availability & our membership of the Accor Hotels. This was excellent and we really loved the spacious room. The bed/bedding were extremely comfortable and the room had a Nespresso machine which was really handy. The hotel is not too far from the Bahnofstrasse and there is a tram station near the hotel. The neighborhood and the hotel itself is very quiet and we had a great time during our stay. The hotel also had farm fresh apple juice (complementary) which was a nice touch. Overall, an excellent place to stay while in Zurich. Will definitely return.

This hotel is located close the the central station.
Rooms are very clean and nice, but, rooms to the front might be a bit noisy from the street and rooms in the rear part of the building don't have a great view. Well, you don't spend all day in the hotel, so that's fine.
The hotel offers fresh organic apple juice in the lobbey (delicious!).
There is a great variety of swiss food offered for breakfast.
My only negative comment would be that there should be more tables for 1 or 2 people, as the staff had problems finding seats for single persons. Also, reception staff was much friendlier than the staff in the breakfast room, maybe they were just too busy.

This was a very good hotel within walking distance of the Bahnhofstrasse where the main shopping district is located. The staff spoke excellent English. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a Club suite which was a nice touch. The room was really large and included complimentary fruit and Nespresso. The hotel is quiet too.
