The best of this hotel was its staff, everybody was really friendly and helpful, then the breakfast was the second best of this hotel: fresh fruit, excellent expresso coffee machine, juices, yogurt, different kind of breads, fillings and swiss cheese.
The room and bathroom were nice and clean. The only problem was the room's temperature: it didn't have AC and the room was extremely hot during night (I stayed there at the end of the summer, in September). So, you need to decide between sleeping in a hot room or hear the street noise the whole night.
WiFi is free using codes given at the reception, they didn't have any issues in giving my more than one code for my cell phone and laptop. Also umbrellas and international plug adapters are available for free at request.
The hotel is located in a quiet neighbourhood with little nightlife, but the old city is at a 15 minutes walk away. There are also 2 tram stops really close to the hotel, the location is not a great issue.
This hotel isn't cheap, but it seems there's no such thing as a cheap hotel in Zurich, so I think it's a fair value for the money and if I return to Zurich I will definitely stay here.
