Zurich is an insanely expensive city and I admit I chose on price. Given the good location, I was potentially expecting a run down slightly daggy hotel. I was totally wrong!
The service was excellent and when I contacted them to let them know I would arrive very late due to missed flights etc, they replied quickly (maybe half and hour!!) telling me this was no problem and upgrading me from the Guesthouse to the main hotel for my troubles. This made my life much easier given the hour.
The breakfast was excellent, just what I needed for my big day ahead.
It was no problem to leave my luggage there for the day and they even had a little ticket system to ensure no-one else could take it.
It was still pretty pricey but everything in Zurich is, so relatively speaking it was pretty good.
I was passing through for a night only but it would be comfortable for a longer stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
