Hi, spent one night here with my partner on September.
Hotel is very esthetic, looks nice, clean, attention to details. Room - was nice, modern, coffee maker, safe, Flat screen TV. Good size, very pleasant. No complaints.
Breakfast is satisfactory - eggs, cheeses, cold cuts, several types of breads,yogurts, hot drinks etc. Dining room , again is very esthetic, the woman working there was extremely nice and service oriented. There are apples in bowls in the corridor :-) As for the location - it's very good and a 10 -15 minute slow and pleasant walk along the lake to and from Banhofplatz.
No a/c or ventilator, but now is ok weather so it was not a problem. Free Wifi - in Switzerland this is not a given.....1 caveat - no entrance for men to the roof top balcony. It is indeed very nice, you can get a glimpse of the lake and the mountains and second caveat - somewhat expensive for being a little out of the center - we paid 300CHF for a double room. It's very expensive. Would I go there again? Perhaps, but I would try hotel Adler in the old city first.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are quiet as the hotel located in a quite neighbourhood.

Small and cozy hotel near the sea. The hotel claims to be designed to suite the travelling ladies (and the "modern" man). But for the fact that the gym and sauna was reserved for women only, there is however no big difference to any other mid classed hotels.
Nice, friendly and helpful staff. Not the most comfortable beds, but we slept. Small but OK breakfast buffet. Extremely overpriced, but with the current Swiss Franc currency, so is everything in Zürich. The real downside was the very disturbing noise from the parquet flooring from the closest rooms, which didn't go well with hard high heels.

The service in general is excellent! The room is just perfect for a person that is traveling and like to relax and enjoy the comfort of a hotel room. Loved the apples placed at the hall by the rooms. Something healthy to munch during the day. The room probably a little bit hot. The breakfast always good with great bread and coffee.The personnel is what I liked best. All helpful and kind. Defenitely a great option to stay in Zurich!.

Two adults and two kids ( a year old and a 3 years old), one night in Zurich. Ok so it's expensive but it's nice, and it's Zurich where pretty much everything is expensive. The staff was irreprochable, the room was great. They sorted out everything in our room for the children before we arrived. The neighbourhood is lovely with the lake and nice restaurants very close to the hotel. We will go back there for a treat, but still for a middle class family it costs a bit too much to stay longer...
