This was a really good budget hotel. We were allocated room 611, a quiet room on the 6th floor. The rooms are very clean with plenty of storage, tea and coffee making facilities and a sparkling, full-sized fridge. Wi-fi is free. Bring tea and coffee, because our sachets were not replaced. Milk and snacks can be bought from the shop... More

Our second time staying here, last was two years ago, and it is even better. The rooms now have fans to help with cooling on hot nights, they have a kettle, teas and a Nespresso coffee machine. We bought milk put it in the fridge and then had perfect drinks. Then add in parking at only 10 CHF per day,... More

This hotel is really good value for budget travellers - the rooms are modern, clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and knowledgable. It is in a beautiful suburb behind the main railway station just minutes on the frequent trams from the city centre - I highly recommend it!
