This is a smaller hotel in a quiet neighborhood. Right across the street from a tram station (Milchbuck); 20 minutes from the airport and about 7 minutes to the Hauptbahnoff / center of town, with trams every minute or so (every 7 1/2 from the airport). Not much in the immediate neighborhood - a couple of restaurants and a grocery store - but you'll probably be eating in the old town and taking the tram.
Room was nice, clean, modern. Windows open so lots of fresh air. I chose a room on the back and it was super quiet even with the windows open at night. Breakfast is quite adequate - nothing hot except you can make soft boiled eggs. Staff was excellent and very helpful. They have tram tickets if you don't want to mess with the automatic ticket machines (useful if you don't have a credit card with pin/chip) and printed my boarding passes on departure.
There is a small lobby which always has tea/coffee available.
This is a great location if you're going to ETH (the Hongerberg main campus) as the shuttle bus stops at the tram station across the street. But there is a nice 50 minute walk, mostly on wide paths through the forested hillside, right into campus (the paths have names and signs, and if you search online for a while you can find a map at a bicycle touring web site which shows you both). I found this to be a great way to get some exercise on the way to/from meetings.
