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.
