We stayed here following personal recommendation. It's about ten to fifteen minutes' walk from the hub of the Altstadt which when we stayed was not a bad idea as the Zuri-flaesht was going on meaning the city centre was very busy and noisy. It is located in the University area of the city and is just a couple of minutes' walk from a tram stop.
The hotel is clean and small. I would not describe as boutique; perhaps boutique-aspiring. The room we stayed in was small compared to equivalent hotels. The futon-style bed rather took us aback. There was no air-conditioning which we found surprising given the summers Switzerland gets. That made sleeping difficult.
The breakfast was satisfactory if a little basic and standard but nonetheless filling. We ate in the hotel restaurant on one evening (open only Monday-Friday) and were impressed at the quality of the food served.
The welcome we got from the member of staff on reception was less than friendly although all other members of staff were happy souls. The reception area opens up into a small but quiet bar area and there is also an atrium where one can sit.
In terms of value-for-money, nothing in Switzerland is cheap and I suppose for the price we paid it was reasonable for what it was in context.
Would I stay there again? Maybe, but not automatically. It is a 3* establishment; no more.
