We stayed just the one night, en route by train from UK to Venice. Arriving late afternoon we walked out of the station, over the river, crossed two streets… and there it was – a warm welcome only about 5 minutes away.
The desk staff gave us our free wi-fi details and we were shown up to our compact (but not tiny) room. Had we not already booked dinner in a nearby restaurant in advance, I’m sure we would have taken advantage of a discounted meal in the hotel’s highly regarded restaurant. Next time, perhaps!
Returning to the hotel later my wife and I enjoyed coffee and conversation with a bright and friendly waitress before turning in. All I can say about the room is that there was ample wardrobe storage, décor was modern and stylish with a hint of ‘cinema’, the bathroom was immaculate, and we slept like logs.
Our hotel highlight was undoubtedly breakfast, at an invitingly sunny window table with an amazing view over the busy streets below.
The ‘amazing’ part came when I suddenly spotted a little red tram shooting out of an office building to our left, then along a narrow bridge across the street directly in front of us at eye level (we were 2 or 3 storeys up). Was I hallucinating? Had my delicious boiled egg been ‘spiked’?
I was quite relieved to find that my wife had seen the little train too. Then discovered from another guest that it was a 100+ year-old tram service ferrying engineering students up the steep hill to the university. We spent the next 40 minutes over delicious coffee trying to catch it on camera, as nobody in Zurich could have asked for a better vantage point!
Breakfast, incidentally, was excellent and varied: meat, fruit, cereals, coffee, teas, juices, croissants, toast and boiled eggs.
In a nutshell, this little hotel was perfect for our brief overnight stay. In fact we would definitely return here were we to spend longer in Zurich in future. Brilliant, thank you everyone!
