My husband, two kids and I loved this hotel. The rooms are beautiful with luxuriously soft sheets and the service is impeccable. The front desk and concierge were extremely helpful and even though we arrived hours before check-in (at 9 am!), our room was ready and made available. The hotel is centrally located in Zurich and is right next to... More

This hotel by the river is perfectly located in the heart of the city, right between Zurich's two main arteries The Bahnhofstrasse and The Niederdorfstrasse. The rooms are spatious and with nice views on any side of the hotel, yet my favorite is the one on the Grossmünster. Fantastic breakfast with everything one may dream of. Recommended for a longer...

We stayed here for one night and it was just perfect! Beautiful rooms, nicely decorated - plenty of room with a view of the river. The staff is very pleasant and helpful as we were meeting family who weren't familiar with the area. We came by boat and took the tram with our luggage. It may be difficult to get... More

The room we stayed in was comfortable, large, and clean, overlooking the river. The... More

We stayed here for two nights in July 2016. Room had a great view of river. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Our traveling companions had been promised a river- view room but previous occupant had smoked in the room. No other river-view rooms were available so their room faced other buildings. Not sure what the hotel could have... More

On the positive side, nice place with a central location and generally helpful staff. The Internet was fast. On the flip side, the place is extremely expensive for what is not more than a 4 star hotel. The rooms are tired and in certain need of updating.
