Reviewed May 5, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend, as it was our last stop before our trip back home. We reached Zurich from Lucerne and not being happy with our hotel there, were a little apprehensive about this hotel as well, but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the place.
The location is not in the center, about 15 mins from the train station and 20 minutes to the lake front but the best part is that there is a tram stop right opposite the hotel which has direct connections to the train station, the lake front and even the airport...wonderful. There is even a coop store on the same street about 5 minutes walk away and a couple of restaurants next door.
The rooms are smallish, but are well stocked with everything that you might need and the bathroom had a bath tub which we were quite happy with after our long day. The bed was one of the most comfortable we had on our trip across Europe and there was air conditioning which we used on one day as there was a bit of street noise if the windows were kept open. The wi-fi is complimentary and was appropriate as this is considered to be a business kind of place. Breakfast was not included in our room, but we had breakfast on one morning (15chf per person) and it was basic and adequate.
The staff at the reception was a mixed bag, on the first day the receptionist seemed a little cold and didn't seem too enthusiastic; however on the next day we were more than compensated as the female on the desk seemed to go out of her way in helping us with everything and even printed out relevant details. We were really impressed with the service and this made us end our trip on a happy note. Will definitely stay here again if we come to Zurich.

We stayed 2 nights and were pleased with the room and friendly service. The room wasn't huge but more than met our needs. It was clean and comfortable. The location on the city centre/ airport tram was usefully especially with a daily pass.

Beautifual area only 5 minutes from downtown. Tram stop opposite Hotels door. Room a bit tiny and to me heating a little scarced but, absolutly clean and tidy. Bathrooms are missing a small smace for womens staff. Loved the area. Concierge service was not very updated but they were nice. If you go and enjoy pastries don´t miss Gnädinger for breakfast, a few blocks from the Hotel, amazing!!!!!

We spent two nights in this hotel. At check-in and check-out, we found the desk staff to be very friendly. They also spoke impeccable English. We took advantage of the hotel's parking, which was located directly behind the hotel. The lot was quite small by American standards, but of a reasonable size by European standards. Best of all it was free, which was a nice plus, so no complaints.

Our room was a triple on the 1st floor, facing the tram station. It was ready when promised, and promptly made up each day. It was small, with no particular frills, but offered every necessary amenity: comfortable beds, a deep tub, lots of water pressure, a good size TV, and adequate electrical outlets. We were also able to get a bed for our toddler, which was a large pack-n-play style bassinet that was well maintained and took the place of the third adult bed. The free wifi service was quite fast. Not surprising for Switzerland, the room may also have been the cleanest hotel room I've ever had, with not a speck of dust or stray hair to be seen.

We were initially concerned that the tram noise would be disturbing, but we never once noticed it. The only thing in the room that could have used improvement was the air conditioner, which was quite loud, but did blow very cold air.

We did not book a rate that included breakfast, and so I can't comment on the food. But overall we were pleased with the hotel and would stay there again if our travels take us to Zurich.

A very pleasant hotel, with a friendly and personal service,
located comfortably across the street from the University campus and from a train station, yet the rooms are quiet.
I highly recommend this hotel

This is a reasonably priced hotel,just outside the city,you can walk into town in about 30 mins or catch the tram.Rooms are clean and big enough for what you want,all the staff we met were wonderfull and very helpfull.Breakfast was good,I cannot comment on the price as can not compare with others.Food is expensive in Zurich.Eat in the big supermarkets,like Migros,Coop or Manor,but watch out if you go for the hot self serve as they weigh it and can become expensive.Nice fish and chips and other fish meals at Nordsee inside the main train station.There is free parking at the front and rear of the Hotel.
This Hotel lives up to the reviews on Tripadvisor.

I highly recommend this hotel! The location is unbeatable as across street, there is a tram station that has trams going to the airport and the old Zurich!

The room is small but more than enough for one person. If you are a couple, you ought want to check if they have bigger rooms available. My room has a balcony, and the view was very nice! Free wifi, super friendly and humorous staff! I didn't bring my converter with me, and they lent me one for free.

Tips: when you fill out a form upon check-in, make sure you put the dates in European style, D-M-Y. The staff might test you ;)
