I've stayed at this hotel for about 4 trips now, spanning 2 years. Experience: It's good. It's in the city center and hot-spots nearby are easily accessible esp the main train station. Room: I wish they provided a hot-water kettle. Rooms might be a little small depending on the type you go for but then it's Zurich. I guess some... More

The hotel is ideally located, close to the central train station, the river, nice shops, bars and restaurants. The staff at the reception is very nice and helpful. Rooms are large and could've easily accommodated larger beds. But it's not the place where you can rest after a long day working. The pillows are small and uncomfortable, no air conditioning...

In June, attending a conference, my wife and I spent two nights in this decent Zurich hotel. Since it is not easy to find a hotel in this town both near the universities and at a reasonable price, the organisers booked this three star hotel for us. You may reach it on foot from the Central Station, and at the... More

Dated but clean tourist hotel in a very central location. Fairly expensive for what it was - perhaps to be expected given how expensive Switzerland is - but was decent value compared to prices of other hotels in town. Best thing: the central location. It's in the city's red light/bar district so there's a certain 'atmosphere' at night. All very... More

Very good hotel for reasonable price. Small but adequate rooms. Very cooperative and friendly staff. We stayed for 2 nights. Walkable from Zurich train station. This hotel is located at the center of Zurich. You will find many Indian restaurants close to this hotel.

Awesome location with the Zurich Railway station and Zurich Lake within 200-300 metres. Look and feel is simple but has all the amenities which are required during your stay. Staff is also very helpful. Good hotel in the offered price specially in Zurich.

Although by far the cheapest decent hotel in downtown Zurich, the service is professional, the rooms, although very small, are very clean and fully functional, the location is ideal.
