I really enjoyed my two stays here - once for several nights, and once for one night. It was within walking distance from the station, even with luggage. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was modern but with existing features, and I loved the exposed beams in my top floor room. The toiletries were basic but abundant... More

With a good location for visiting the city core by foot, the hotel has convenient parking and nice rooms. The breakfast was good and personnel very friendly and helpful. The only fault I can find would be the price but I guess this is Zurich standard…

Good hotel located next to the University and walking distance to downtown. The room was available at the time of check in and they had complimentary sparkling water at the desk. Breakfast good and complete. The staff was very kind and friendly.

Perfect location being just a short stroll away from the main attractions. Bedroom was nice size with large bathroom and nice comfortable bed. A plus was the tea/coffee making facilities, safe and fridge. On the downside the bath towels on the small size and thin although this seemed to be a common theme with other 3 hotels stayed in.

I booked this hotel for its style, location and price. There are many good points for the hotel, location to train station, old town, shopping, river and restaurants . The staff were friendly and efficient, the wi-fi worked well and I loved the option to have breakfast outside. However it was a major downside for me that there was no... More

With Zurich being our last stop on our Swiss trip; this hotel served our purpose. To begin with; the hotel is atop a hill; so if you have luggage; a stroller and a screaming 2 year old; it can get a bit annoying to cart all of it up the stairs to the hotel. However; after checking in; you are... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days as a tourist. The rooms are in a good state, with good bathrooms and shower heads. I totally recommend the breakfast they offer, very well made, and the price is just right. Other thing I really liked at this hotel was the help the receptionists offered me and my family. Suggesting places... More

It's easy to reach by car and the location is perfect (near the city centre). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and cozy but the air conditioner was way too loud!! The breakfast was delicious though.

We had a nice experience at this hotel. Our hotel room was like a small studio apartment with kitchen and small terrace, which made it nice for a week long stay. I think there is only one room like this. Location was just steps away from old town with lots of restaurants to choose from. Plus not very far from... More

Less than 10 minutes walk from the main station, and just outside the old town, the St. Josef served as an excellent base for sightseeing on our recent 3 night stay, The hotel has 2 buildings, one with the restaurant and reception and some bedrooms, and a separate annexe across the courtyard with just bedrooms. Our room was on the... More
