Nice single room, average bed and blankets, clean, well-painted, big windows and fresh air. Shared bathroom was always clean, I didn't have trouble with waiting, though I don't think the place was full. The only reason I give this place 4-stars instead of 5 is because the shower in the bathroom was a little janky -- the valve was loose... More

Delicious and substantial breakfast for our travels. There are three "breakfast plate" options and this photo is the middle size. I ordered the larger size Bircher muesli which was a good portion. Service was very friendly and attentive.

Kafischnaps provided clean rooms, and cosy rooms. That part was good. However, the insulation between our room and the toilet as well as the other rooms was rather terrible. We could literally hear how many draws were made from the toilet roll. Also how other guests would talk and walk between rooms, bathroom and toilet. Additionally 5 bedrooms shared the... More

This is a great little place to stay in Zürich. Maybe the owner wants to keep it a secret. It is affordable, tucked away in a residential area, but still close enough to the main train station. We were very heartily welcomed at about 09:00 pm by the man behind the bar, who was so enthusiastic, that though we were... More

First of all, people complaining about the noise coming from the restaurant are kinda funny: you should know that if you are staying in a room over a pub, you should expect some noise. Although, it really wasn't that bad. The place is super charming and comfy. They clean the whole place every morning. You get a nice bathroom with... More

Great little place. It's in a quiet residential area, a few minutes from the main train station and easily accessible from several tram routes. Very clean (I checked everywhere) and cute room. The noise from the pub wasn't too bad, and I travel with ear plugs regardless. The staff/owners are very friendlyand helped me with a few things to do... More

Clean with accessable bathrooms on floor. Some people may complain about noise but we were perfectly aware that it were rooms above a pub before booking and in fact enjoyed the liveliness of the place. Sound proof windows elimated all sound/noise but an Airconditioner would be welcomed especially in summer. Close to Bus & Tram station and only 10 min.... More

A really nice and cosy place with fantastic personel. Quite close to the main station although in a quiet and relaxing location (according to us.) People complaining about sounds should try Langstrasse/Helvetiaplatz instead and see what noisy really is :) Nothing more to say, really nice place for a good price in Zurich.

Kafischnaps is definitely the place to stay if you like somewhere quirky and fun, with a happening bar and cafe downstairs... I stayed one night in the 'cherry blossom' room, which was very cute with its old iron door in the room (something to do with the previous life of the place as a butcher shop, I presume) and two...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
KAFISCHNAPS is a coffee bar situated in the heart of Zurich, between the districts of Wipkingen and Unterstrass. It is a young, typically "Zurich" location - a blend of good old-fashioned "Beiz" tradition* and modern, sophisticated lifestyle. Hipsters share a table with fundies, kids get their Babccino and even your mom would feel at home in our little place. In addition to the eatery, the Kafischnaps houses a small private hotel with five superbly furnished rooms, which is ideal for tourists who want to experience life in Zurich at close quarters. * Beiz is the Swiss German word for pub or inn ... more   less
