“Central location, simple room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

This hotel has a good location, just a few minutes' walk from the main train station, with trams passing the front door regularly. The staff were generally helpful, although when I asked if wi-fi is included I was told it was available in the lobby only and would not work in the room, which (happily) turned out not to be true. I was staying for 2 days but the reception at check-in would only give me a password for 24 hours, saying I would have to come back and get another password after 24 hours, which was a little inconvienient.

The room itself is quite basic. I had a single room and it was a decent size, although it did get a bit stuffy overnight (in June). The bathroom was decent, with a bath and shower. The bedding was nice and the bed was comfortable. The room was nothing extraordinary but I don't mind staying here for a business trip. The breakfast buffet was good - it included lovely croissants and pastries as well as the usual breads, meats, yoghurts and cereals.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

I booked for 9 nights, but checked out after 3 nights. As soon as I entered the single room I knew something was wrong - while outside was cool the room was hot. I put it down to the climate control being on the wrong setting so I changed it. That did not work. I then opened up the window. That did not work. At this point I was getting a headache (just came off a trans-atlantic flight). I went downstairs and asked for another room because the one I was in was too hot. I was told they were aware of the problem and that they were fixing the compressor and it should be done by the end of the day. I took their word that it would be fixed. I had a most uncomfortable night even with the windows open. Next morning I met another person at breakfast who also complained about a small hot room. By the second day I was developing a cold and on the third day it got worst. I decided to check out of the hotel and book into another hotel which was a bit outside the center of Zurich (in Messe) but at this point health mattered more than convenience. It was a good move! This goes down as one of the worst hotels I've stayed in.

Stayed three nights in this hotel. My room (single) was at the end of the corridor at the bacj of the hotel. It was a very small room, but it was very quiet so I slept well. The room had everything you need. A wardrobe for your clothes, safe deposite, tv, a nice bad.
Excellent location. Tram 10 form the airport stops just in front of the hotel, central station and town centre are only a five minutes walk from the hotel.
Small breakfast room, but it was not very busy. Food was good.
Very friendly staff.
Would certainly recommand and return.

I stayed for five days April 2012. The location is great, being only a block from ETH and and about a five minute walk downtown. The rooms are quite small, especially for the single bed (think dorm-sized room). Breakfast was decent. The staff was nice and helpful.

Internet was expensive (20-30 CHF per day, depending on the way you connected) but they did have a computer in the lobby if you just needed to check email. They did have a special that allowed you to get 24 hour access to the internet and pay-movies for about 30 CHF.

I stayed for 2 nights and had a comfortable experience. Check-in was smooth and efficient. Reception staff were all very pleasant and friendly during my entire stay. They are good at making recommendations about Zurich and for booking and advising on transportation.
My room (102) was small but clean and brightly decorated. Lovely bedding, good selection of TV channels (surprised to have BBC 1 & 2), safe and nice-sized fridge. The room was facing a side-street so nice & quiet, with a distant rumble of trams passing out on the main street.
Breakfast buffet was quite extensive, not much hot food apart from omelettes on request.
Overall, a positive stay for a couple of nights. It is not in the heart of the old town though and Zurich being quite hilly, if you want to be more central, perhaps think about looking elsewhere.

Great location, just few minutes from the center and railway station and cheap transfer from/to Zurich airport (tram n° 10 stopping in front of the hotel). We booked a superior double room with view and when we got there, we received a standard mid-sized room (with view). We asked the receptionist if the bedroom category was the one we reserved, and the answer was that if we wanted a king bed, that was the only solution they had. The info we got on the official website, were different and the picture doesn't reflect the reality. Breakfast buffet is ok without being wow and just across the smoking lounge (which is not very pleasant for non smokers)

Room Tip: Make sure to have a room backyards...as the street where the hotel is located is very busy (and nois...
