Maybe I was tired because ot was the last day of my trip, but this place bothered me. Their driving directions were not so good – fortunately my gps proved reliable. It was very expensive, but not that great of a room – no AC, for one thing (make sure to ask for it – some rooms have it). The windows open on a loading dock for a supermarket! The driver blew the horn at about 6:30am! The block has two nudie bars on it. The whole city (including the confusing high-rise airport) felt like it was designed to sell you something at double the normal price. For instance, the pizza place across from the hotel charged 4 euros to give us two plates for the one pizza we ordered to share and, of course, charged 2 euros for water -- a 23 euro pizza for 29 euros. That got old fast. In the hotel, the walls were thin. But there was good wifi. The parking was great (not free, of course). The Nigerian bellman was very pleasant. Otherwise, this was a rude enough experience to make me be sure never to stay in central Zurich again.
