After traveling overnight by plane and then taking the train into Zurich, arriving at the hotel at 10 am and being eagerly welcomed and escorted to an already available room was such a nice treat. The hotel itself is a bit quirky in layout, but the rooms are quite nice. Having two fans in the room, especially on the hot day I was there, was greatly appreciated.
The hotel is very well located. It is a very short (uphill / upstairs) walk from the main train station and is extremely accessible to all that Zurich has to offer. Once inside, the lobby area is small and there is an elevator to take you upstairs.
The breakfast area / restaurant was very nice and they offered a traditional full Swiss breakfast including fruits, fresh breads, cheese selections, sliced meat, cereals, etc.
The only negative to this hotel is that the wi-fi worked poorly and required me to sit in the lobby if I wanted to use it. (It is offered in the rooms, but the reception is very poor. The only place I found decent quality was in the lobby).
I would highly recommend this hotel and, when returning to Zurich, will certainly stay here again myself.
