We were here for only one night but it was restful and enjoyable. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They stored our bags since our room wasn’t quite ready- we took hotel bikes on a long ride around town. The staff gave us a map, highlighting our route and giving advice about the busy areas and landmarks. We enjoyed a delicious local beer upon return and several walking distance restaurant recommendations, one of which worked perfectly. Sleep quality was excellent- a cool night allowed us to open windows and the hotel provides fans for circulation. Bring a sleeping mask if you need darkness Breakfast was good and the coffee is really good and European. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel as much as the city.

This hotel was a home away from home, since I stayed here during moving apartments. The location of the hotel was really practical for me with many public transportation options nearby. I got a very warm welcome from the front desk staff. Lea, who handled my check-in and departure was very accommodating and helpful. My room was flawlessly clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. My room in the courtyard was quiet and the surrounding birch trees gave it a pleasant atmosphere. The housekeeping staff were so friendly and patient as I opted for a late check-out. It's well worth the stay.

First time in Zurich and this was a really nice place to stay, its not right in the center but a very easy walk to the center, we walked twice a day with children, so its most definitely doable! Approx a 20 min walk and I did see there is a tram stop about 5 min walk away. Staff were amazing, so very friendly and helpful, always greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. Room was great, very clean, very big and very modern. Bigger than my first ever apartment in London. The only small issue I had is the room can become quite warm at night time, at home I love to sleep with a window open, sadly I couldnt do this here because when the window was open the noise outside was too loud. Also I was not able to get any hard pillows despite asking. These are VERY minor things. I would most def stay at this hotel again if I found myself in Zurich.

They even had our same trash can! :) Genuinely kind and helpful staff that welcomed us to Zurich. We appreciated that it wasn't in a touristy spot, but easily walkable to other areas. We stayed in the penthouse and it was great to take a bath and stretch out after a long flight. We also appreciated having all the different outdoor spaces to get fresh air and views.

The hotel was situated perfectly for walks to and from the city center. Staff was very friendly and they gave me good advice on how to explore Zürich and the surroundings. The room was situated in a courtyard and was perfect for my weekend stay. Nice little gym with small hand weights (Maybe some bigger weights would be a good idea) As a solo traveller this hotel was excellent!!
