2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Very conveniently located in front of the central station over the limmat river, clean and friendly staff, then that is basically it. The rooms are small, furnished without particular charm or attention to detail (and cosmetics are clearly below average). Another good point is the coffee machine.

Obviously, Francs don't go far in Zurich, so it's probably a good idea not to expect the world... Our room was comfortable enough, but looked very much like it hadn't been updated since the 1970's; I wish I'd taken a photo of some of the electrical items ;-) The staff were all great - very friendly and helpful. The bar... More

We booked and junior suite with river views. However to see the views you have to stand up and peer out the little windows. We were not happy so were moved to a lesser room on the first floor. This was great for two nights but then the band started up directly below us so we were moved to another... More

Even if value for money does not exist in Zurich, this place as a good balance of facilities and great location for the money (compare to others), but be careful on the single rooms because they are tiny. Also the breakfast is a bit basic for the price. Ace price: 300€/night

Good hotel. Good room. Nice people at the reception. Fine amenities. Overall i recommend it, but please avoid the breakfast. It costs about 25 chf, but its worth like 3. They offer almost nothing but plain croissants and weird looking frittata. The worst part was the yogurt. It was kept outside and offered basically melted. When i opened it, it... More

Excellent central location. Few minutes from the main station and many places to eat within a 10 minute walk. They'll lend you travel adapters if required. The breakfast choice was small but good (ask for fried eggs for instance). Like lots of hotels it can be difficult to cool the room quickly, but otherwise can't fault the room or the... More
