“superb location with nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This hotel is superbly located beside the zurich hb station.. just beside it is a starbucks that is very helpful for coffee lovers. However the best is that the shiquai central bus station is just opposite the hotel. All day tours start from there.

On the hotel, the rooms were clean and brightly lit. Breakfast was good as well, with a variety of ham and turkey selection..

For the price you pay, it of course isnt up to expectations. BUT, for location and room size and of course being based in zurich - i enjoyed it. Staff at the front desk was also very pleasant and easy to deal with. Ill be back.

I spent one night here, returning from a biz trip. The location is the best feature of this otherwise drab and forgettable hotel (oh, Starbucks is next door, if you like that sort of thing). The staff are uniformly unfriendly but not unhelpful. The hotel is budget through and through. My room was small but not awful. Bathroom quite small but clean. Breakfast is lousy. Coffee machine makes thoroughly mediocre cappucino and the range of foods is minimal. My room was on a street and it was incredibly noisy. I would not return here.

Room Tip: Find another hotrl

I stayed here in August of 2012. I had a rail pass, so chose it because of it's proximity to the station. You literally walk out of the door, go into the building next door and go down the steps to emerge in the train station! Very handy. Tram stop is right in front of the hotel, making it very easy to go anywhere in Zurich. Rooms were a bit small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice and included in the price of my room. Very convenient. I would stay there again. friendly staff, as well.

Do not accept a room in the annex. I've stayed in both the main building and the annex. Both have serious issues with noise, however the annex really much worse. The walls are paper thin. Making a complaint made no difference, the usual "we can't do anything" is a little hard to swallow after you managed to get about 2 hours sleep due to the noise from a neighbouring room.

No form of compensation offered. I was absolutely shocked by the lack of interest from the staff.

Room Tip: Don't accept a room in the annex.

Zurich is such an expensive city and this hotel is no different. Other than that it was a very good option for us, specially considering the location, a short stroll to nice restaurants and very close to the train station.
