Good hotel minutes away (walk) from old town Zurich. Very attentive, kind and good humored receptionists. We arrived early and they went out of their way to get the rooms ready. Very comfortable, spacious rooms and spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

We had several rooms in the second building. The rooms were very different in size, but we were lucky that one room only needed to hold one person, so the smaller sizer was ok. The rooms were comfortable ad well appointed. Nice high speed internet WIFI connection (free). The shower was small, but that's almost always true in Europe. My... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel after spending 14 days on a land tour of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Very conveniently located to allow walking to all city sites. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Nice large clean room with a wonderful breakfast. Very good hotel for a great price.

Hotel is very nicely located near the restaurant area. Hotel staff is kind and they provided us with plenty of information about attractions in Zurich. Hotel rooms are relatively big and decorated with style. Breakfast was ok, but nothing exceptional. In general hotel was better than we expected.

Great value for money. Located 3 minutes walk from the central station, and 5 minutes walk to the old town. Rooms are surprisingly spacious but the shower is quite small. Thw bed is most comfortable and exta pillows are available upon request. Breakfast is good with various cheeses, yogurts, breads, cereals, juices and fruits. Overall a great experience.

Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights In April. Most of the staff was nice and willing to give advice about the various sights and the transportation. The room was a bit small. We had a triple room and the third bed was very uncomfortable. The fridge didn't cool and all our groceries had gone bad. We were compensated only... More

St. Josef is a very good hotel in Zurich, walking distance (altough some steps) from the main train station. The only concern I have: they have no air condition in the rooms - if it gets really hot, they have some mobile ac devices that help, at least for the rooftop rooms. Beside that, the rooms are great (especially compared... More
