Zurich hotels are very expensive. It didn't meet my expectation. The hotel is not spacious, especially the elevator. Its location is in a quiet neighborhood, 15 mins walk to central station. The shower room was good. And they provided nice breakfast. The employees were all nice. They were very friendly like hostel reception!!

Nice clean hotel with very helpful staff. Great location, only a few blocks from City Center. Only short fall was no AC and it was hot. Window opened but no screen. Breakfast was fine and open early. Tram station very close and we took it up the hill several times.

This was our third visit and as before we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Lovely large rooms, comfy beds, delightful staff, wonderful breakfast. Can't imagine ever staying anywhere else in Zurich. It's quite an uphill hike from the station if you're on foot, but worth it.

Really clean hotel, with very friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is very good with a great selection to choose from. It's only a short walk in to town or you could catch the tram if you don't fancy the walk. Lovely welcome when I arrived with a cold tea and wet cool towel needed with the heat at the time. I...

The wonderful, helpful staff makes this a top-notch hotel. Our stay in the best room (top floor) was perfect for our week-long stay. Two balconies, one on each bank of windows, are delightful, with great city views. Unfortunately it's very hot this week, in the 90's, and the big windows let the room heat up fast. We kept the curtains... More

Pleasant 10 min walk to the Niederdorf district, a bit further to the old town and churches. Nice staff, helpful, we needed a Swiss electric outlet adaptor which they let us use during our stay for free. Parking is very inexpensive (CHF5) and right outside the door, amazing. The standard family room was a little tight for 2 adults and... More
