“Good location, too hot and uncomfortable”
Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here while attending a wedding over the August bank holiday. The location is good - 5 mins walk down the hill from the central station and easily accessible from the airport (we got the number 10 tram). The receptionists are friendly and helpful, providing us with a plug adaptor and more than willing to advise on directions.

However, as described here by others, these apartments are let down by the heat and noise within the rooms. There is a fan provided in the room but the room remains uncomfortably warm. And the noise? Wow! We were told to book a room facing away from the road which we did. Unfortunately, our room was subjected to unbelievably loud noise coming from the local church. Do not expect a lie in in these rooms!!

Expensive too, as everything is in Zurich!

We stayed here for two nights over the week-end.

It is decently priced, but there are quite some down sides to it.
If you have a room facing the street, the noise outside of cars and trams make it diffcult to sleep through. It also gets extremly stuffy so the choice of heat or noise is not easy.

I can't understand why they don't invest in airconditioning.

The room was ok, the bed comfortable, enough space, with a small work desk, good choice of tv channels. Coffee machine is a nice touch too.

The carpet was all stained, as was the ceiling, but apart from that, very clean.

The bathroom was fine, with space and a decent shower.

An average hotel in all and good for budget travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the street side.

This hotel is next to tram lines so its really difficult to sleep until midnight and after that mosquitos would not let you sleep. Room was ok but it was really warm. No table fan provided. Opening the window will make you feel as if sleeping on road.

Room Tip: Try to take the room which are not facing the road, dont know if they have such rooms.

The hotel is located close to Zurich Bahnof and the lake. Rooms are having kitchenettes, Nespresso machines and free Wi-Fi. Very close to the main part of town with the tram right out side our door if needed,which is both good and bad.There is no Air-conditioning or Fans in the rooms and if you open windows in night trams' noise will make if difficult to sleep. But more positive than negative and excellent staff made up for any downside.

Room Tip: Try to take room on where noise can be less.

Excellent location, very good value. Close to many restaurants, but with its own kitchenette and very near to two supermarkets. Can be a little noisy, especially if you are facing the street (and are on the first floor). Nonetheless an excellent and very reasonable choice. staff were very friendly and did their best to help, look up places and arrange any thing you need. Overall, an excellent choice for budget travellers, business people who like some additional space and families.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front are much quieter.

Located a 10 minute walk from the train station, the river and lake, and the downtown, it is a good place from which to see the sights of the city.

The room is quite nice and having a little fridge, hot plate and microwave makes it easy to prepare for a couple of meals a day. A great advantage given the price of restaurant food here.

The room is definitely only suitable for 2 people. The main bed was fine but the third bed was a roll away cot with a thin mattress and a missing slat. It may be ok for a small child but definitely not an adult..

Zurich is likely the most expensive city in Europe, although interesting and with easy access to the alps, we probably should have considered another Swiss location. Zurich is more of a business destination then a tourist destination.

Room Tip: The tram is just down the street and is noisy until it finishes its route at 12:30. Aim for a back l...
