Small hotel in a local chain but very personal. Great cooked breakfast with homemade jams and breads. Rooms are spacious as are bathrooms and clean. Very close to centre of town- 10 mins walk or 4 tram stops to main train station! Trams go all night past hotel but I didn't find them disturbing- get a number 7 or 15... More

The hotel is tidy enough and location is ideal for central Zurich. It is about a 10-15 minute walk into the centre. The rooms are quite small and there is limited parking, Breakfast was a little disappointing. This hotel is ideal if you want prefer the small non standard chained hotels (although this is still part of a small chain)... More

Positive qualities: very clean, quiet, friendly and hospitable staff, excellent WiFi, comfortable beds, very good breakfast. No negatives. The superior queen room on the upper floor has wonderful space and a deck with chairs and table – well worth the upcharge. This a... More

Every thing was nice except no clear instructions that we should take tram instead of walking from train station to the hotel. It is almost exhausting assuming you hv to carryover your luggage over steep hill & staircase 😞. The pros are the hotel staffs are friendly & accommodating, the rooms do provide apple, mineral water (a surprise) & tea... More

I live in Zurich and stayed here for a week while my apartment was being renovated. Location is great. About 5 mins out of the city and very close to the main station, main shopping street (Bahnhofstrasse) and the old town. You can either walk or catch a tram which is just outside the hotel. Our room was on the... More

We were quite satisfied with our stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were pleasant and polite and we were very happy that our room was ready for us early in the day since we had just arrived from a long trans-Atlantic flight. The location was a bit farther from the train station than we had expected... More

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.
