Loved this hotel. On a quiet street just minutes from the main train station and close to restaurants and everything. There is a cool funicular just down the street. Comfortable and well furnished rooms. Great breakfast, all the staff friendly and helpful. I had the wrong plug adapter and I asked the front desk person to direct me to where... More

If you are traveling and need to be close to the central train station, this is a fine choice. The rooms are fairly big and stylish. Breakfast is ok but there are not a lot of choices. Hotel offers shuttle service to airport also which is nice. The restaurants and river views close by are special. Seems like a good... More

Absolutely lovely hotel, rooms are generous and a nice sized bathroom, very clean, comfortable and lovely crisp bed linen. Breakfast is very good and tasty, cereals, meats, cheeses, cakes etc a perfect way to start the day.

The St Josef is a friendly, centrally-located hotel in Zurich. The staff is friendly and speaks excellent English -- and the breakfast is delish. I stay here every year, while visiting my Swiss cousins.

Very walkable location, maybe 5 minutes by foot to the river and 10 mins to the train station. We we're upgraded to the apartment so I'm not sure how the standard room we booked is but the Spartans wonderful. Large room, comfortable bed, nice kitchen and balcony. The bathroom was also very clean. The room was a little noisy with... More

Highly recommended. The fans in the room were a nice touch. Breakfast was excellent. Asked for more blankets and towels, and the response was instant and with a smile. Room facing the street can be a bit noisy at night due to students from the university behind the hotel.

This hotel is very convenient to the Tram and the main Train Station. Nice cool breeze comes from the lake with the windows just slightly cracked. Shopping, night-life and entertainment is just around the corner Hotel sits on hill side next to university. Excellent staff!

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…
