“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Great little place. It's in a quiet residential area, a few minutes from the main train station and easily accessible from several tram routes. Very clean (I checked everywhere) and cute room. The noise from the pub wasn't too bad, and I travel with ear plugs regardless. The staff/owners are very friendlyand helped me with a few things to do in the area and seeking out vegetarian restaurants. I would definitely stay here again. The breakfasts in the pub/coffee shop downstairs are great!

Clean with accessable bathrooms on floor. Some people may complain about noise but we were perfectly aware that it were rooms above a pub before booking and in fact enjoyed the liveliness of the place. Sound proof windows elimated all sound/noise but an Airconditioner would be welcomed especially in summer. Close to Bus & Tram station and only 10 min. from main city centre. If you travel on budget dont look further !

A really nice and cosy place with fantastic personel. Quite close to the main station although in a quiet and relaxing location (according to us.)

People complaining about sounds should try Langstrasse/Helvetiaplatz instead and see what noisy really is :)

Nothing more to say, really nice place for a good price in Zurich.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Pflumli (spelling?) and it was perfect for a couple. All rooms looked nice though.

My wife and I booked one night here during a one-day layover during a trip from the states to Italy based on the recmendations in one of the travel books we picked up at Barnes & Noble.
It is now 3:30 am as we write this unable to sleep because of the noise coming from the first floor. When they closed the bar at midnight about a dozen partiers hung out in the street for a while which is to be expected. What we didn't expect is that it would become even more noisy in the bar after closing.
The staff here has noisely rearranged the furniture for three and a half hours now with no consideration for the guests in their own boarding house. It is just incredible to the point of comical if we weren't so exhausted from our eleven-hour flight. I can't imagine what they're doing down there. For a while I was thinking of a single note from a tuba over and over again. My wife thinks its stools, chairs, and tables skidding along the floor. Whatever it is its ridiculous as is their sterio which is getting louder and louder. Apparently, hotels here in Zurich are very expensive. But, right now I would gladly double the US $123 we paid just to have a bit of quiet. It is quite obvious to us that the reviewer who we read before booking had never stayed here.

Kafischnaps is definitely the place to stay if you like somewhere quirky and fun, with a happening bar and cafe downstairs... I stayed one night in the 'cherry blossom' room, which was very cute with its old iron door in the room (something to do with the previous life of the place as a butcher shop, I presume) and two lovely windows onto the street. One small single bed and a shared bathroom and toilet across the hall, all spotlessly clean and quietly stylish, in an understated retro kind of way...
It's a short stroll down the hill from the tram, four or five stops from Hauptbahnhof (the main train station), so its quick and easy to get around, to the old town and Niederdorf with all its fabulous cafes and bars...

There are some reviews on TP where guests are complaining about the music downstairs. I think this makes the charm of this hotel . I mean where else can you go where you can mingle with locals watch a concert in the evening and being one block from where everything happens? Plus in a city where the average hotel price might as well be a lot above 200 bugs I think one should not complain too much. But sure, if you would like to go to sleep at ten o'clock it might not be the best choise. Otherwise this is definitely a place worth checking out.

It was real excitement to stay at this small hotel which is combined to a stylish restaurant / bar in Zuerich 4. They had nice food and some good drinks while hosting a small concert. Rooms (maybe four or five) are retro in style but very cosy. Some feature a balcony, but bathrooms on the floor. Kitchen available.
Beside all other hotels in Zuerich which are mostly very neutral this one made fun.
