Very clean and cozy hotel. The lobby is welcoming as is the front desk staff. Rooms are very clean and beds and pillows are great. We had a room with a balcony facing the main street. Was great to sit and have coffee in the morning. Although no one told us that the beds were adjustable. Just found out looking... More

Classy old, refurbished hotel in the old city that looks onto the Opera house. Excellent restaurant. Advisable to book the restaurant as it is not large, but very popular. The building is old and so the floors are not wholly level so a little care needed. Room facilities good. Lots of TV channels, whatever language you prefer. Easy walk to... More

Good hotel next to Opera. Very good location close to restaurants and bars. Friendly personnel and even though rooms are small they have everything needed for a business trip. I will definitely stay again as there are so many things to see around and everything is in walking distance. I did not try the breakfast as it was too expensive.

I stayed at the hotel during the Europa League final. Its location is decent and the rooms were actually quite nice. They were clean, comfortable, decent sized, and the bed was nice to lay down on.

Very nice and luxurious boutique hotel in Zurich, well worth a stay. Central, close to lake and opera and very good service. The restaurant serves very good dinners from a classical menu. I had beef tartar and asparagus with shrimp and hollandaise made to perfection.
