“The good and the bad”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The good: Nice welcome, helpful friendly staff, good location in terms of transportation and sightseeing. Excellent breakfast, clean room.
The bad: The street corner outside the hotel turns into a very noisy meat market around 10 pm with young females strutting their stuff unobstructed by city police. The noise level stays unbearably high beyond midnight, and into the small hours on weekends. In summer you have to choose between open windows, ear plugs and still horrible noise, or closed windows, room fan buzzing and not doing the job of cooling the air.

It was only one night on a trip,
Switzerland is particularly expensive and the hotels are not cheap or convenient,
This was the best hotel and it looked decent and was in a good location - close to the center.
The hotel has 4 floors, the rooms are small, as soon as you enter the room on the left is the toilet and shower right. After that, the doors and the rest of the room. The bed was comfortable, I had a view of the street, it was hot and maybe a little louder, it was a weekend. HB is near the lake and the two most interesting streets in the city. Near a large supermarket. Internet was free and worked fine, breakfast was good, especially the cheese was a good choice. Staff solid.
At night, the hotel was in a happy environment, lots of restaurants and clubs, however, that there was once a red light distict so there's prostitution,
but this is a very safe and a peaceful end.

Room Tip: no tip for good room

The bed is very comfortable, even if it is very small. The location of the hotel is pretty good. The price is much better then other hotels in the area. The staff is friendly and helpful and the wi-fi worked without any issues. Bear in mind that there is no A/C. However, they do provide fans to guests upon request, which worked fine for my stay. Also, as mentioned by other reviewers, there are "working girls" right in front of the hotel. At first, you might wonder what 8-20 girls are doing standing around in front of the hotel...

Room Tip: Request a fan and internet codes for each device you want to use the internet

This is quite average BestWestern hotel, and I would not put too much stress on the immediate surrounding issues nor the high costs. At the same time you have to admit, as already reported in previous reviews, that the immediate street might annoy someone and that its a bit pricey to be a BestWestern property (but hey, you get the points anyway!).

Breakfast was nothing special, more like "very simple" which might leave you hungry, but the staff was helpful, friendly and polite whenever had a contact with them.

At the same time when I'm considering if I would recommend this hotel to any of my friend, I am already planning to book my next stay there - to be honest not because of the hotel but because of a nearby bar.

Thank god I only stayed for one night. I paid EUR 175 for a a noisy room - 3 star - no air condition (32 degrees outside) - old carpet and shower curtain. I know Zurich is expensive, but this hotel is not worth the money. On the plus side the location is quite good and check in staff friendly.

My family stayed in this hotel for two nights. Upon checking, we were informed we will not have warm water for one day. Ok, generally I could live with that if there was some apology or something. But just being told this while paying a very top price... Then we found out it was a red district right there, in front of the hotel, call girls and customers keeping it busy. Quite amusing for our teenage daughter. On second night of our stay, the customers were very loud. Very loud music would not let us sleep. We called the reception only to find out that they close for night with nobody to call. Eventually somebody else called police, too late to get a good night sleep. ... I would never go back to this hotel again. I cannot recommend it.
