I stay here every time I come via Zurich. Located 100 meters from Zurich HB and very nice property and staff. It is conveniently located near to bars and restaurants in the city center. The bar and restaurant downstairs are expensive but that's Zurich

I base my ratings on the expected deliverables of a hotel according to its class. For example, an economy motel like I might stay at when on a solo road trip with my dog, must be safe and clean, the TV and air conditioning must work, and the front desk must act like they appreciate my business. On the other... More

This hotel has a great location in Zurich. It is convenient to just about anything you would wish to do in the city. The hotel is well maintained and clean. However, the staff behaviour was rude and inconsiderate. I had presented my card at check-in. At that time the card was authorised. For some reason three nights into my stay... More

Fantastic location, right next to the river, short walks to all the tourist sites, lake and shopping. Right outside a major tram junction and very easy to drive into.

Easy walk from the train station. Instead of the expensive breakfast, go diagonally across the street to the grocery store and stock up on fruit, yogurt and pastries - or Starbucks is across the street. Given tiny Swiss hotel rooms, at least this hotel has efficient room design, with plenty of shelf space in the bathroom to organize toiletries, etc.... More
