“Very good 4* hotel in an upcoming area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The hotel is located in the west part of the city, which is now an upcoming area. During daytime the area hosts some big companies and during nighttime new bars and other interesting projects.
The hotel is a very good 4* star hotel. Rooms are spacious with coffee/tee facilities. Keep in mind though, that there are few twin rooms and is very likely if you ask for a twin to get a double where the make the sofa as the 2nd bed.
Hotel has also a gym and a small indoor pool. Breakfast was very good in quality and variety and all staff was very friendly.

This hotel is very good as a 4 star hotel. We stay in a classic double room and there is not any negative point about the room; room and bathroom was clean(very important point in every hotel),sleep quality was also good but room service can be improved(one day, they forgot clean the room until we asked on 4 PM).
Generally reception staffs were helpful and friendly except one man who made me upset, when I asked him to late checkout(3 pm), he said that " it is not possible because the room is reserved." next morning when I asked about luggage keeping from another staff, she told me "late checkout is possible up to 3 PM "
Another positive point about the hotel is easy to access (from airport, central train station and Zurich old town), tram station is about 1 min walk from hotel.
American breakfast was good and high quality.

The hotel is well located. It only takes a few minutes to reach the tram going into Zurich city centre and about 5 minutes to get to the train station going straight to the airport. I liked the hotel . The rooms were very clean and quite large with a nice bathroom. And tea and coffee in room. Reception staff were very good and friendly. There are computers in the foyer area with free use for guests. The only downside is the immediate view outside the front door as the square is grey and rather a depressing place!!!!

We stayed in Zurich for one night during our Europe tour. The hotel was easy to find, check in was smooth and it was convenient to go into town with public transportation literally right outside the hotel. The staff was friendly, parking (though there was a charge) was easy and the rooms were clean. The only slightly annoying thing was that for every device that you had that needed to connect to the internet required its own username and password. With 3 people and 2-3 device each, it got confusing which user/password was whose and for which device.

This is an upmarket hotel just 15 minutes by Tram from the train station. The rooms are very comfortable & nice. We had a pleasant stay & would visit the downtown area using tram which would take no more than 15 minutes. Also, there are night clubs just walking distance from the hotel, besides there is not much to do near the hotel, but everything is reachable with tram. If you do not mind a travel by Tram to the downtown area then everything else about the hotel is good. We did not mind this tram travel at all as it is very comfortable & the tram station is just there in front of the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling for business or for lea sure.

Staff are good, friendly & helpful. The hotel is next to the Tram station so location for getting into the city centre, about 10 minutes ride is great. But the breakfast, its all there but what a mess, please teach the breakfast chef fry eggs gently, grill bacon nice & crispy, the has browns are a total disaster. Rooms are good, English channels as well, thats good.

Room Tip: We got the building site, you need to ask when booking.
