“Great Discovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

I stayed at the Lady's First, while on business in Zurich, I found this hotel and staff a Great Discovery. the staff and service were excellent, friendly, and made you feel comfortable.

By the way Men are welcomed.

The hotel is an old building, so well constructed and therefore the rooms were very quiet and you heard no sounds from the other rooms.

I felt very relaxed and comfortable.

The hotel is very clean and the beds were comfortable.

I highly recommend this hotel.

The location is about a block and half from the Lake, great location.

Room Tip: Request the upper floors, 3 rd floor, quiet. I had a Std Double, plenty of room for 1 to 2 persons.

Total neglect on the part of management. They have heard complaints for years about the squeeky floors - old wooden boards - no padding, no rugs. It is really outreagous. We didn't even consider staying longer than one night. We heard every move of the person above us getting ready to go out and wearing high heel shoes. We couldn't complain after 11 p:m because there is nobody at the front desk after that hour. Go at your own discretion but bring earplugs.

Room Tip: Top floor only because lower floors have someone moving above you on very, very noisy squeeky floorb...

Lady's first is without doubt run to perfection. We arrived to the hotel at 8.30am after a 13 hour flight (with two young children)thinking we would be leaving our bags and trying to entertain them for hours. Instead we were greeted with news of our room being ready. BLISS! The room was fantastic, the breakfast was absolutely delightful and we were blown away with how wonderful and prompt the staff were. We found the location to be exceptionally convenient, quiet yet central and the staff we genuinely warm and welcoming, we would definitely stay again.

Located walking-distance to the older section of Zürich and also only two small streets to the lake and water-side promenade, this hotel is a great value. It is also walking distance to the opera house and shopping. The room is small-ish and clean with high ceilings and the decor a modern twist in an older building. The lobby has a fireplace and modern furniture, which is nice to sit by. Front-desk service is professional, and the breakfast is healthy and has a good variety. Wooden floors are a little creaky, so you can hear your neighbours coming, but we would certainly stay here again. The bowls of apples in the hallways are also great for a late-night snack. The pillows were comfy and individualized duvets were cozy and warm.

Nothing so special about it. We were forced to take a superior room because we wanted twin beds. There was nothing superior about it. Nothing design in it. And just a shower. Good experience but this hotel is overrated online.

Love this hotel. I have to admit that the Ladies Only spa is my favorite part, however the room was spacious for a single, and the breakfast was varied and tasty.

The hotel Ladysfirst is a very nice hotel, nicely located close to Seefeldstrasse, the tram stops and not far from the city center. The hotel is quiet and the hotel staff is always really nice and helpful. Breakfast is good. Would recommend it without hesitation.
