A very elegant hotel, matching the entire old town of Zurich.
It certainly was impressive - grand breakfast room where you could have breakfast overlooking the river (and breakfast was good too). The rooms were reasonably spacious, bed is electric that sits you up to read or lifts your legs.
Bathroom felt a touch dated and small given the size of the room. Finishes were good, but you can see it hadn't been renovated for some time.
Staff at the front desk had remarkable memories, we were never asked for our room number after check in to collect our key. Impressive.
Tiny bit of constructive advice - if guests have had their luggage lost by the airline don't charge 9 Francs for a toothbrush and the same again for toothpaste. For the price you charge it should be complimentary. A small detail, but it's those small acts that really make a hotel memorable.
Its a pricey hotel, as most things in Zurich are but for a short stay we enjoyed it
