Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This hotel is located very close to the railway station, yet we found our room (504) didn't have any train noises what so ever. We had a pleasant view across the roof tops of the other Zurich buildings. Check in was simple and it is a quiet part of town it seemed. We walked to old town which was only 5min to get to the great shopping and restaurants. The hotel's buffet breakfast was plentiful and enjoyable. Highly recommend.

This hotel is located about 2 mins walk from the central railway station, which is a perfect location.

Overall, it's similar to other Best Western hotels - clean and, functional:
- good sized room
- for some reason the aircon in my room didn't work (there was a temperature control but it didn't do anything!)
- excellent for local transport links
- good service, friendly staff
- I missed breakfast but it looked a bit on the small side
- located on the other side of the main station to the shopping areas
- reasonably priced.

I would stay here again, but mainly because of the price element (Zurich hotels are quite expensive).

Barely at 5 minutes walking distance from Zurich HB rly station (be sure to exit the station from Platform No 15 else you will have to walk a lot) this hotel will welcome you with apples kept at the reception no matter whichever time you reach here. As all the house staff had left for the day the time we arrived, the manager himself dragged the extra bed to our room for the kids...quite impressed. But surely you need to see that replenishments are done at the breakfast spread. On our last day all the salads, sausages, bacons, eggs had exhausted at 8.30 hrs and the only option we had was to have some milk with a slice of toast. Even after 15 min wait all the trays were empty...could not wait more as we had to catch our flight back home....

A very pleasant hotel very near to Zurich HB station, ideal for us as we are touring Switzerland by train. A very helpful front desk and room was just fine although a little warm (no air con). Highly recommended by us.

Staff lovely however no air conditioning. We were so hot in our room and even windows open offered little relief. Only a 27deg day too. Surprised they didn't have it. Great location to train station, couldn't get any closer. Would definitely stay in winter, however the no ac in summer makes me think twice, Staff member (young man) very nice and helpful though. Fine for an overnight stay.

Centrally located, a few minutes walk from the main Zurich station and the superb Zurich tram service, this small but well appointed hotel was almost perfect for a weekend away. The only drawback was no air conditioning in one of the hottest summers on record! The ever-helpful reception provided us with a fan which helped a little but even with the windows wide open, the temperature was too high for a comfortable night's sleep. Breakfast buffet more than adequate. The room was small but well designed but I would have liked a couple of drawers in the wardrobe. Fridge & safe both provided. I would recommend asking for a room at the back for a quiet night.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

So far this has been my favourite of hotels in Switzerland. The front desk was really very pleasant, helping me find places to visit in Zürich and making suggestions. The room was very neat for its price. Modern interior and lots of light. For the first time in the row of different hotels I could sleep ok without earplugs. The hotel has a very rich breakfast selection including fresh fruit salad, my personal favourite. Although it ise located near the train station (conveniently also), it is still just a 10 minute walk away from the old town. I would really recommend this hotel because of its price and quality balance.
