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. At night things get heated in the neighborhood with its many bars and night life but there is no noise that reaches the rooms. It is within walking distance (3mn) from... More

Now look, this is a hotel in the middle of the old city, in an old building, you really cannot expect to have immense rooms. The hotel is very tiny, you might pass right by it if you are not paying attention, but it's fitted with the surroundings. The rooms are very small, compared to other similar hotels I've been...

We stayed in a triple room with our 12 yr old son. The room was very basic, but very clean and comfortable. The only thing was it was very hot at night, so we would just open up the windows to cool it down before we went to sleep. Breakfast was simple but ample and the staff were lovely. The... More
