“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We popped into Zurich as part of a road trip, checked the internet for a room, and thought this hotel looked decent value and fairly central - and it was. It appears to be geared up for businesspeople spending a few days in town, and as such the rooms are of a studio apartment style, with a small kitchen. Functional, but fine. For Zurich, this little place offers good value, especially with internet access included. It is a simple and quick tram ride to the centre of town, and we even had free parking.

The star attraction is the manager though. Miguel is a lovely chap who made us feel very welcome and really seems to enjoy his job. He even went out of his way to help me sort out a parking ticket I had picked up in another town.

I enjoyed this place i found hotels in Zurich were crazy expensive especially if you wanted one that was walking distance to central zurich... and any place under a 100US a nite were hostels with not great reviews...
i upgraded to a suit which was like 10 bucks more so why not! it had a big spa tub and a little kitchen which i ended up using cause there was a grocery store 2 min away... also the tram station is only 2 min walk as well which after 3 stops you can be in the old part of zurich or 3-5 more stops your in the central area or main train station...
there isnt much of a reception but i didnt really need it anyhow.. there is parking in the back for an ok price...
overall for the price and location i was happy with my choice it was a quiet area... the rooms were quite big for euro standards and they were clean... not much more i can ask for since i went to zuirch to see zuirch not my hotel room :)
