This is a small hotel in a perfect location about a block from the lake. Beautiful promenade along the lake. Rooms are quite nice, staff is friendly. Like many small hotels, the desk person acts as the concierge. Only average service in that regard. Nice restaurant and bar area, and great sidewalk tables for people-watching in Zurich (also for Lamborghini-watching... More

This hotel is just across the street from the opera house and therefore quite easy to find even if there are language barriers. Like all hotels we stayed at in Switzerland, it was immaculate and convenient to several restaurants and the bus line to get to other parts of the city. They provide a complimentary glass of champagne during your... More

My daughter and I stayed here in June and loved the location. We were within walking distance to the lake and great restaurants. Our room was huge for European size rooms and the beds are very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and kind. The roof top has amazing views of the lake and the city.

We stayed here for one night with our toddler in the Executive Double Room which had a sizable sitting area you could close off (perfect for the baby cot!).

Stayed here late July while on business. Really friendly staff greeted us after a horrendous journey! Got upgraded (I think everyone does 😉) nice spacious room affecting free wifi. Hotel in a central location really close to the lake. Breakfast in the morning was a bit overpriced for what it was but would defo stay there again!
