“Junior Suite”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My and my man got upgraded from a double room to a penthouse suite. The suite was amazing. It was a mix of modern and old-school, very comfortable bed, huge bathroom with a shower and a tub, and a great, rooftop view of downtown Zurich.
The hotel has a bar next door but the prices are outrages (15.50 CHF for a gin and tonic :/), so you're better of just having a beer. The hotel is also difficult to find in the labyrinth of streets which is Old Town Zurich. It is quite a walk from the train station, but the location is worth it. There are plenty of restaurants and bars around.
The staff is friendly and speaks English very well. We loved our room and will be returning again.

Dear Kay A

Thank you very much for your nice feedback!
We just learnt from planning department and building control office that our alley receives additional letterings which should make it easier to find us.
We would be delighted to welcoming you back in our hotel.

Nice modern clean-cut hotel in the old town.

Short tram or walk to the main station and plenty of restaurants and bars around nearby.

Breakfast buffet very good.

Only down side was that it was very noisy outside late at night even though we were on the top (third) floor.

The hotel is a small little gem in the old town. Tiny reception and a wonderfull, helpfull staff! Stayed in a room which was not facing the small alley where the winebar is so the room was very quiet. No noise at all. Clean, nice rooms. No frills but everything you need. Loved the bathroom! Breakfastroom was small but very tidy and nice. Breakfast was fresh and it was nice and calm atmosphere in the room. Reasonably priced hotel in a city where everything is expensive. If you don't like big hotels and don't mind squeezing into a tiny elevator with your luggage, this is your hotel. The location is perfect. Walking distance or a short tramride to the train station where the trains go to the airport. Loved my stay in the hotel!

It is a beautiful hotel in the old part of Zurich. Everything is very close by. We walked to Bahnhofstrasse, Lake Zurich, Limmat river, Grossmünster, Kunstmuseum, Opera, etc. We had a fantastic stay here. We were completely satisfied.

Small hotel, 27 clean rooms divided over two buildings / houses in a small alley (opposite each other), very friendly staff, bathrobe & slippers and free water (two half litre bottles per day!) in the room, free Wi-Fi everywhere in the hotel, laptop at the disposal of customers in the lobby, breakfast room during the day available for reading or working with tea, coffee and fruit provided. Cosy bar next to the hotel. Nice breakfast (different types of buns, yoghurts, fresh juices, fruit, cold cuts and (Swiss) cheese, scrambled eggs and bacon) and they will gladly serve you different eggs on request.
Negative points:
1) the rooms are thin-walled: noise from the corridor or the neighbours (wooden floors, slamming interconnecting door) is very audible, but: there were earplugs provided in the room
2) not enough sockets (only one in my room, near the bed)
Nevertheless: highly recommendable hotel.

Thank you for the hint regarding the noise from the corridor. Once you book a room next time we highly recommend you a room in the main house. And we will provide a multi socket in your room.

Well I am biased because my Dad booked this hotel the first time I stayed overnight in Zurich and he was born here! We have been coming back every 2-3 years since and I have not had a reason to change where we stay . I is a beautiful quirky modern boutique hotel and as all Swiss hotels you can feel the true pride of maintaining it perfectly. We have stayed in other hotels there but only if we needed more room. We usually travel with 2-3 people.
The location, as said by others is perfect, just slightly off the main drag but squarely in the middle of the action.
The place for its size feels open and airy . Every time we stay the place has been clean, sevice is good and the front desk is always manned and helpful. I even lost my GPS unit and was surprised a couple months later in Boston, USA when I received a package and a nice letter explaining that the staff had found it behind the bed in the room! Imagine the chances of that happening in Boston or New York!
We find it an excellent value and more personal than the large hotels. Don't hesitate to trust this place on a Zurich stay. We'll be back!

This hotel was in a perfect location! Right in the wart of old town zurich and walking distance to lots of points of interests such as; Grossmünster, Fraumünster, banhofstrasse, the lake, and much more! The staff was friendly, the rooms were cute, clean, and quite. Overall a great little place to stay and the breakfast was amazing!
