We had booked a kingsize deluxe room and expected a big bed and frescoes/tapestries and/or antiques. Everything in our room (608) was brand new, with no sense of the old. Also the bed was not very big at all. It was a nice room, but for CHF900 I expected something really outstanding. We were shown another room which was much larger, but it overlooked a courtyard and it was really rather bleak. Our room had three windows two with very nice views over the rooftops, but you could not sit and look out, the room was narrow with a seating area at one end and the bed in the middle of the room, no headboard, no clock and no bedside tables. The best part of the room was a huge outside balcony, but it was December! Get this room in the summer.
The best part of the hotel is the bar, it was always busy with a fantastic atmosphere, the staff will get you a table and be extremely personable while doing it. The staff here were truly magnificent, nothing was too much trouble and you felt that that really wanted you to be comfortable and happy, they are proud of their hotel. Breakfast was good, if expensive, bathroom above average with good lighting. The hairdryer was so awful I went out and bought one, why do you have to keep your finger pressed on the on button? My hair straighteners wouldn't work here either. All the public spaces are beautiful, the area is good for shopping and restaurants, but most bars seem to be over the river on the Neiderdorf, cross the river and turn 2nd left.
Zurich is one of the best cities in Europe, no doubt, the people are certainly the most hospitable, loved it.
