5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 selected the hotel in part because we knew the location was excellent (having lived in Zurich for 4 years previously). The room was very big with a nice view and... More

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!
