The hotel is just right opposite to the train station. Shopping is in walking distance. Restaurant area is even nearer. The room is big and facilities in the room are nice, expect only minor that pillow is too flat. It's good to have coffee machine in the room too. We went down for a drink at bar at night: the...

This hotel was really more than I expected. It was clean, right off the tram and a quick walk from the altstadt. It's not cheap but Zurich is not cheap. Try to get a room with a river view. I wish I had been able to stay longer. I didn't eat there but the bar downstairs is a nice place... More

We stayed here for only one night, but would have been happy to stay for longer had we not been flying home the next day. The hotel is modern and our room was large with a lovely bathroom, containing both bath and separate shower (with choice of two shower heads)! The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the railway station...

I read a review that said this hotel had a/c, but it doesn't. Rooms are dingy, along with a worn looking lobby. Close to station, but that's the only positive. It's hard to believe the positive reviews. I'll stay elsewhere next visit instead of this over priced and two star rated four star hotel.

This hotel is directly opposite the main station. We stayed in a river view room which was very small, but comfortable and clean. The staff in this hotel are extremely friendly and helpful, with the exception of Diana who works in the bar, it's such a shame her abrupt attitude which was bordering on rudeness put me off revisiting the...

We spent 3 nights here, its a step away from Zurich main station, where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. Rooms and amenities are standard for 4*. In summer air conditioning works, weather can change day-to-day here, so bring a jacket for rains and windy days. Staff are courteous. A good base for exploring the city and tourist attractions.

While it's right in front of a main tram station this hotel was very quiet. Not just the outside street noise but the hallway noise. Didn't hear people coming and going and my room was right in front of the elevator. This is the perfect place to stay-right across the street from HB station, walking distance to everyday-old town, lake... More
