The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. The view of the lake whilst distant, was very nice. Cost for the Brits even with devalued post brexit pound seemed quite expensive. The Sfr9 ticket per day for the electric tram for the whole day was very good value. Got caught out with taxi from the airport at Sfr65...

Lovely hotel near the zoo (so there's a very regular tram service - every 10 minutes from the city centre) it's uphill all the way from the city past amazingly beautiful university buildings, it feels very rural. Gorgeous views across the city, lake and towards the snow-topped mountains from the breakfast room/restaurant, the terrace and even from our bedroom balcony....

Very nice and pleasant little Hotel high above Zurich with stunning view over the city, the lake and if you are lucky over almost the entire swiss alps. Staff is friendly and rooms clean, spacious with excellent bedding quality. Hotel restaurant is nice and the seasonal asparagus from the surrounding area is delicious. Just: it's sauce hollandaise that comes normally...

We chose this hotel as the location looks to be in really peaceful place, and we made the right decision. The location is fabulous as it's in top of the hill overlooking city and lake. Walking trails in nature and Zoo near, and you can get tho the city by Tram in about 15-20 minutes. Great atmosphere to relax. We...

Great spot in the hills above Zurich with a gorgeous view (when there's no fog!) across the city to Lake Zurich. The hotel is 200m to the super-efficient Zurich tram that takes you direct to the city, allowing connections elsewhere in the city via tram or train. I had a single room, which was very comfortable with good heating, a...

Room was great with the nice view over the city, quite at night, fresh air breeze from the trees, birds singing in the morning, nice for jogging in the nearby park and forest, with the FIFA headquarter and zoo walking distance. loved it!

This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are large, new, nicely decorated, with a good view. The bathrooms are stunning. In principle, staying here was phantastic. BUT the check-in and out are very lengthy processes. Each time, I had to wait around 10 minutes to be processed. Staff - not on the friendly side - even did not know...

Spotlessly clean, large rooms (note for Americans - no air-con, you have to open the windows if it is hot). Superb service, excellent food especially breakfast. Terrace overlooking view of whole of Zurich with pleasant bar. Behind are woods and walking trails. There is grass down to the tram. Easy to reach by public transport from the airport - you...

This hotel is semi modern, but what it lacks in 100% modernity it makes up in charm and cleanliness(major points here!!!). The view is astoundingly bueatiful sitting on a hill. Next door is a wonderful trail, sadly i did not have the time to utilize it. A little further down is the tram which runs into the heart of the...

Lots of staff available and helpful. We ate in the bar and the restaurant - both good. The breakfasts have loads of local produce. The tram stops about 100m from the hotel and has a regular service, also close to the zoo and a very interesting cemetry (James Joyce is buried here). They have a pillow menu! Fresh fruit, flowers...
