Reviewed May 27, 2013

This hotel is a little gem. I spent 5 days these May and I was really impressed. It is excellent situated just the other corner of the train station of Zurich, in a nice and safe neighborhood. Most of the city trams stop in front of the hotel so you can easily visit all the main attractions. If someone wants to walk, Banhofstrasse and old town are like 10 min. away. Two nice restaurants are right beside for someone who wants to have dinner nearby. Also the meeting point of all the excursions (Zurich Tourism) is right in front of the hotel. I stayed in a triple room with view to Limat River and the national museum. My room was modern, spacious and it even had a second bathroom. It was cleaned every day and it had sound proofed windows. The breakfast was plentiful, of good quality and good variety(eggs, 5 types of ham and cheese, croissants, great variety of breads, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruits and a coffee machine that could prepare several types of coffee).The breakfast area was very clean, with big windows, flowers in the table and the staff was taking good care of the clients. The receptionists were truly helpful, giving all the necessary information about the city, providing city maps and helping in any way they could. From the front desk someone can also buy tickets for the tram or for his train journey to the airport.I also need to mention that for Switzerland standards this hotel is great value for money. I would definitely return and I strongly recommend it.

Needed a hotel in Zurich for one night as we were transiting through on our way to a tour that began in Bern. Only a very short walk rom the train station. Extremely clean rooms, great buffet breakfast and a very friendly staff. The only negative was that we were on the top floor and there was some sort of support column that came through the room and was right next to one side of the bed, Had to be careful getting up at night as to not walk into it. The best recommendation that a traveller can give a hotel is - would I stay here again? Definitely yes.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the top floor if possible.

Dear GrandPaRuss.
Thank you very much for your positiv feedback. It makes me very proud of my team and shows that we are on right way. Due to the structure of the building we have a few rooms on the top floor that have these supporting elements in the middle of the room. The original premises was built in 1882 and has been renovated a few times already. During the last renovation we were discussing the roof structure and thought we leave them as decoration elements. It gives these rooms a romantic touch and makes us a bit different from all the newly built hotels in our city. Please let me know when you are returning to Zurich. I would be very happy to show you a few more rooms and get your opinion. I'm looking forward to welcome you soon in our beautiful city.

I wish you and your family a nice time and hope that you have the chance to enjoy the summer. We are still waiting for better weather...

All the best
Kurt Wodiczka

Really handy tram just outside door, going into city. Access to train station couldn't be easier.
Lots of places of interest and there is a Botanical garden too-change trams once, get day ticket for public transport from reception. Nice small hotel. Lovely room, really helpful and nice staff. Continental breakfasts self-service, with lots to eat and staff who keep tables clear regularly. Smallish breakfast area, but staff will open other room if required. Safe deposit box in room. Reception staff very knowledgeful for tourist information and helpful generally. Quiet situation. Good large bed. We had a balcony giving an interesting place to sit and have a drink. Bedroom overlooked bus park, with lots to see and giving an atmosphere of involvement with others. Easy to access for a day tour outside city or a city tour, all of which start just across the street from hotel. Trips can be booked through hotel reception if required. Safe area. Hotel provides a good city map and a free bottle of still water welcomes you in your bedroom. There is also free fresh fruit available at reception. Good value for money and would undoubtedly return there on another visit to Zurich.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking bus park. Landesmuseum surrounded by lots of trees is als...

Minutes from train station. Place is quite clean and is an efficient way if you are passing through. Rooms are tiny but well organized/ space is efficiently used. Free Breakfast and free wifi am added plus. We were traveling with our 3 month old and had requested a cot which was not available when we checked in but staff was responsive and sorted it out quickly. Basically not a luxury stay but a very good option from an efficiency standpoint.

This is my second time to stay here. I picked this hotel because it is so close to the train station. Upon arriving in Zurich we only had about 45 minutes to see the Chagall windows in the Fraumunster church before it closed. We inquired at the front desk about directions to the church. Angela, who works at the front desk, said she was leaving and going that direction and we could walk with her. She went out of her way and walked us directly to the front door of the church. She went above and beyond to do this. Rooms are nice as is the breakfast. We were also able to purchase train tickets to the airport from the front desk. We will stay again.

Room Tip: Buy your train ticket to the airport at front desk.

I chose this hotel because of its location. The hotel is 2min from the central railway which makes arriving at your hotel from the airport cheap and easy. The bus terminal is right across the road from the hotel which is very convenient for tours. There is also a Starbucks right next to the hotel. I walked acoss the old town and the hotel is situated very close to the old streets, shopping streets, river and the beautiful lake. The staff were very friendly and provided lots of helpful advice. The rooms are small, but not impossibly small, and I have no complaints about the cleanliness of the facilities. Theres even a small bedtime treat on the pillow at night. The wifi was welcome. The breakfast is standard fare, nothing to rave about, but there is also a small shop selling snacks next to reception if you need it. Overall, the ease and convenience of this stay will cause me to book here again.
