Older boutique hotel in the heart of Zurich. Don't get a room facing the square - lots of partying all night below you, complete with cigarette smoke. Central to everything but noisy. Good value for Switzerland.

Nice location within walking distance from everything in the old town. We arrived early bur got our room so that was great. The room was small and the bed was a small double. Reception was very helpful and we enjoyed our stay. The crypt is nice, but a bit expensive.

Dear jkls9 We thank you for your visit and your review. It is a pleasure to hear that you did enjoy your stay in our historic hotel and our wine cave. Due to the age of our building - it is more than 500 years old - the rooms are rather small, you are right. It will be a great pleasure to welcome you again on your next trip to Zurich. Kind regards

We stayed here for two nights over Easter weekend, and when we arrived at the hotel we couldn’t believe how good a spot it was! It was a 10mins walk from Zurich main station (where you’re only a 15mins train journey from the airport), and in a little square almost surrounded by

It's quaint hotel in a nice location. The staff were quite friendly. The breakfast was fairly good. The room size is too small. Just not adequate for 2 adults & their luggage. In the end, I always ask myself whether I would choose to stay here again. In this case, the answer

Dear rajiv72548 We thank you for your review about your recent stay with us. Yes, the rooms are quite small but we are unable to change this fact. You have to expect small rooms in a building which is more than 500 years old. We are the perfect choice for travellers which do i.e. a city break and would like to stay in the middle of the city center where everything can be discovered within walking distance. We do understand that with big luggage for an extended Switzerland tour it is might not so comfortable. But we hope you have enjoyed Zurich and Switzerland and would visit our lovely city again.

Dear Veronica We thank you for your visit and your feedback. We are glad to hear that you were satisfied with our staff service, the breakfast and our central location in the heart of the old town of Zurich. Our hotel is one of the oldest Hotel in Zurich and you see on the website you have booked that the building is from 1500 and therefore not new. It is a historic, listed building and so there ist no option to change the entrance and the stairs to the reception. We regret that you did also not feel comfortable with the room. We have 11 different rooms in the category you have booked and if you would have let us know immediately that you are not satisfied with the room, we would have done our best to find a room which you felt more comfortable. We apologize that the room has not been made perfect during your stay, this happens usually only when the red sign is on the door. We have started already with updating the rooms so we would be glad to welcome you back when all the Rooms have been done and will be sure you will be happy with the new design.
