I stayed at Hotel First for about a week in April 2013. At the time I found the Hotel pretty bewildering but when I look back it was actually pretty great!
No reception after 6pm. We arrived after 8.30pm in pouring rain and even though we had been warned that we had to go down to the resturant, finding it was a struggle and although I have some German, the restauranteur had almost no English and not great German so checking it was...tiresome.
The breakfast room - Tina Turner is on repeat and I'm pretty sure the same food was out the entire week. But, there was lots to choose from and the coffee was good.
Location - you literally cannot walk anywhere. We didn't have a car but it meant we had to get an incredibly expensive taxi just to get down the road for some dinner (if you don't want to eat at the overpriced and average restaurant downstairs). Do not stay here if you don't have independent transport or need any kind of evening entertainment beyond your laptop/tv. But, the view is cool if you get a room on the front side of the hotel down to Lake Zurich.
Very spacious rooms. I could have fit a plane in mine.
Bathroom: incredible. Again, really spacious and a great shower. Couldn't ask for more mirrors.
Generous desk space and fast internet. Easy and comfortable to work at the desk.
Sabrina is lovely - so when you get any service, it's good!
Overall: if you are independent and don't need concierge service (or anything near it) and don't mind Tina and Ike but love comfort - Hotel First is the place for you! I have to rate it as 'Very Good' because thinking about it's quirkiness puts a smile on my face just thinking about it - a memorable hotel!
