Stayed at the Hotel for one night in June 2014 and could not have been more happier with my stay. The hotel is easily accessible from the main train station by walk or via trams. Taxi to the hotel is not recommended as it is expesive (like all of Switzerland) unless you have loads of luggage.
Once inside the hotel, you are blown away by the service. The staff are extremely helpful and checkin is easy and very fast. Do not argue or fight for an early checkin; if the room is available you can checkin anytime you arrive.
The rooms are quite sufficient in size and the bed is extremely comfortable. Sleep quality was great. The bathroom was a little small compared to other Novotel and Sofitel hotels I have stayed in from Accor Hotels. Since it was just the one night I stayed, it was manageable. Maybe there are bigger bathrooms in other type of rooms.
The breakfast at the hotel is also worth it with a number of choices.The restaurant in the hotel is also great. The staff are very attentive and cater to your every need.
The only con I could think of was the Bar closing at 23:00 CET. It was after all the World Cup season and I wanted to watch the matches at late night having a beer among other Football Fans. Unfortunately I had to watch the match in my room alone.
The Bahnhofstrasse (famous Shopping Street) is at a walkable distance from the Hotel. It's very easy to get to Lake Zurich from there and take the many crusies on offer.
All in all, an excellent hotel to stay. Zurich is a city that does not require much time for sightseeing unless you are doing a lot of excursions to the Alps which I had already done. So stayed here just the one night but will certainly be back to the hotel whenever I am back in Zurich.
