The room was lovely (modern and spacious, if we hadn't filled it with rollaways, children and suitcases), but not air conditioned (wouldn't matter in the winter, but not so great in August). Tiny closet space and no drawer space to unpack into (maybe they removed a dresser to fit us in?). Mini fridge generated too much heat, which wasn't good... More

I highly recommend this hotel. Parking was a bit hard but probably not an issue for most and you're in the old town (should expect that). The room was nice size and very cool with different writers as their theme. Breakfast was great too! All within walking distance of everything.

My wife, sister in law and 3 kids stayed here for a night. We had a great time. First of all location, it is right in the middle of the old town. Walking distance to everything. There are restaurants, cafes, shops and bars in the immediate vicinity. The staff were the friendliest and most helpful from my experience with many... More

The hotel is really charming and off the side street of old town Zurich. The front desk consist of one lovely person who is also tending to the little bar area - so if you are looking for a typicall chain hotel services, forget it. The rooms are very small but clean. I thought it was very overpriced, but I... More

Very central location in Zürich's old town area - only a few minutes from Hauptbahnhof via tram, which stops practically at the front door. Rooms are small, but not cramped - facilities are somewhat basic for a "business" hotel, but not excessively so considering the price by Zürich standards. If you want bells and whistles, you'll find them elsewhere at... More

If you are looking for a small, cosy hotel in the old town within walking distance from the lake you might want to try the Altstadt Hotel. This is in a side street a few steps from Limmatquai. I had a room on the 5th floor. I specifically requested a room that was quiet and I was pleased that it... More

I stayed here for two nights on a trip recently booked by the conference I was attending. Nice location - very central to Zurich and a nice walk from the station, though there is a tram. It is a small hotel, small bar/restaurant downstairs and breakfast room on 1st floor. The double room I had was not large, but perfectly... More

Location is great to see old Zurich. Check-in was friendly once the receptionist/barmaid/waitress realised I was there. Room typical size and clean. Small but acceptable bathroom. Bed too hard for me. Big problem was WiFi speed - Lync, Facetime impossible. Breakfast was meagre. This hotel may be great as a tourist base but not for a business person

Nice Hotel in the heart of the city. Rooms were tastefully decorated. Not sure if it is a family Hotel as we seen a lot of business executives during our stay. Plus point is that the Hotel is close to the amazing Swiss transport system with lots of great restaurants nearby. Breakfast was basic but sufficient.

Whenever I am in Zurich, I like to stay in this hotel. From the airport, I take the S Bahn to Stadelhofen and either walk or take tram 4 or 15 to Helmhaus. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to Paradeplatz which is convenient for business or shopping on Bahnhofstrasse. The rooms are clean with modern decor but I recommend... More
