“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The location of this hotel is perfect, only about a 10 minute walk from the main train station. Walking distance to all the major attractions in the city of Zurich. Quiet hotel, extremely clean and very accommodating. I had just arrived after 26 hours of traveling from Australia and they allowed me to check into my room at 10am so I could sleep! The room was perfect size for one person.

Stayed here with my husband for 1 night in May. It is very handy for the station and there are plenty of places to eat nearby. Although the room was not large it was comfortable and cosy with good lighting. The bed was comfy and the pillows were just right. The room and the bathroom were well equipped and clean.There was a good selection of food at breakfast which was served in a light and bright room on the first floor. The staff were polite and helpful. Would stay here again if passing through Zurich.

Very convenient location naer the railway station. We were given an upgraded room on our outward trip and found it very nice. However on our return trip we were in a standard room which we found had no tea/coffee making facility. It was a Saturday night but found that the restaurant and bar were closed. The very friendly reception staff did get us tea/coffee making facilities but it did cost us 7 euros

Room Tip: Higher floors are best. be aware that bar and restaurant is closed at weekends

Conveniently located near the Zurich main train station (5min walk) with friendly service at the reception. Although booked a single budget room but still spacious enough for my stay. Would prefer to have a water boiler (tea/coffee making). Need to improve the window insulation as the noise from the opposite bars can be quite disturbing at night (i.e. till 2-3am). The breakfast at Euro 20 is quite decent and looking out on the tramway.

Room Tip: try obtain higher floors and facing the main road (the other side has lots of bars/restuarants that...

Since we are centrally located it is true that we cannot offer complete silence however our windows are equipped with triple glass and we also have now in all our rooms ear plugs for our guests in case you want to sleep with an open window.

We are looking forward to welcome you back.

Fantastic location, 5 mins walk from main station and Bahnhofstrasse main shopping street, room spotlessly clean and well furnished with all necessary facilities, albeit rather small but to be fair it was an economy room and was very reasonable considering it's location. An excellent breakfast with ample choice served on 1st fllor and too too expensive @ Sfrs. 20.00. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room if important for you

I booked the hotel through their website and had to change my bookings last minute due to the change in our travel schedule. They were prompt in their response and allowed me to change my reservation with minimum hassle.

The hotel was located in a convenient and central location though the people at the train station were not that familiar with the hotel. I suggest that you find the location first via your map in order to prevent going to the wrong direction.

The room was cozy and clean and the reception was very helpful and patient in terms of providing information and recommendations to good eating places. All in all, we would stay here if we visit Zurich again!

Chosen for 2 nights within an independent tour package for its proximity to the station due to much railway action in our itineraries. Certainly it is fairly close to the main station and it is also well placed for the sights, restaurants and even an arthouse cinema nearby. Reception was pleasant and helpful. The included breakfast was good and included real espresso coffee rather than that pallid capsule stuff - it was also fun to watch the nearby funicular go back and forth while you dine.

But it must be said that the rooms really are very tiny and tight, with few frills. Our 2 rooms were also quite stuffy despite the air circulation system and they were fairly noisy too - we did not know about the claimed difference between the sides of the building.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the main street side

Dear Guest

Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor. It is vitally important to us, to receive honest feedbacks like yours.

Furthermore, we think it is very helpful for future guests to choose a hotel in the center of Zurich.

Regarding the room size it is true that some room categories are rater small since our building is more than 100 years old and we have to work with the existing infrastructure.

Nevertheless we hope to welcome you back at the occasion of your next trip to Zurich.

Yours faithfully
