The room was clean, but quite small. Small windows, but nice view. I thought the food and service at their restaurant was quite poor. The live piano was a nice touch. The hotel reception staff always seemed a little anxious and confused.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed early Jan in room 515 (double room, river view) which is a well appointed, clean and spacious room and as described, actually was overlooking the river. The Hotel is in a fantastic position merely a 5 minute walk from the train station, the check in staff were very friendly and helpful and ensured we knew where we were in relation to the city's main attractions. The Hotel is positioned adjacent to tram stops (which seem to go everywhere) and overall it is an excellent location. As I said it is well positioned and as we were here for only for 2 nights, it was perfect as we could just go for a short walk and be surrounded by many major attractions of this lovely city. There is a bar / restaurant on site which we didn't have a chance to use (our only regret) however it looked great so yes, definitely next time. Overall we thank the staff for an excellent stay and will most definitely book here again should we have the opportunity to return.

My wife and I enjoyed a stay here recently. One bonus of staying in hotels is the ability to eat out! Food was very good and staff friendly . The hotel itself was friendly and decent. The room was large and clean with good views . We had a very good stay and found it good value

I caution all travelers to be careful when booking. We booked a room for August 2020 and due to the pandemic had to cancel. We called the hotel and notified them. On the day of the stay we got an email indicating that they were expecting us, so we called and again advised them that we had cancelled. We also emailed them. They also were on notice that there were travel restrictions from the US. Yet, they proceeded to refuse to refund the payment of $331 dollars for the first night. These are extremely bad business practices for a hotel, and we will never consider staying there given the poor way in which this was handled. I recommend that if you decide to stay here, you get a confirmation from the hotel themselves because they will deny that you called and cancelled.

Dear Mr. Maria S If a guest makes a reservation via booking.com and then wants to cancel, the reservation must be canceled on booking.com. When a guest calls and wants to cancel, we will communicate it as described. We wrote an e-mail the day before arrival, but we did not receive a response. We did not receive an e-mail with a cancellation. Unfortunately, you could not provide us with a cancellation number, which we would give in the event of a telephone cancellation. We regret that you were not satisfied with our next stay credit suggestion. Kind regards Franziska Kläy Management Assistant

Spent 2 nights in zurich. Pros: staff was excellent and professional Checked in early because we booked from their website, was very nice Location was excellent Their breakfast buffet is highly recommended Cons: Bedding uncomfortable, their king was 2 separate twins that were made up separately with a big crevice in the center. Not ideal for a couples weekend! Room was also stuffy. Tried to leave window open during day, didnt help. Noise was awful from down the street on saturday night until about 3am. Sunday night was fine. Again a mixed bag.

Dear Guest Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel and for your feedback We are pleased to know that you enjoyed our excellent staff, the early check in, the location in the heart of Zurich as well as our buffet breakfast. We were delighted to receive such a wonderful compliment about our excellent staff, early check in, stuffy room as well as buffet breakfast. Only our twin bed rooms are equipped with 2 mattresses. The king size bed rooms are equipped with 1 king size bed (1 large mattress). We regret that you did not report to reception. We would have liked to offer you another room. We hope you saw the controller for the ventilation system on the wall. It would be a pleasure to have another opportunity to convince you of our hotel. Kind regards Franziska Kläy Management Assistant
