    Good location, clean, great breakfast, good beds and wifi.

    Room was hot - AC did not work well at all but it was unseasonably hot and staff brought us a fan which helped.

    Fabulous

    Freshly rennovated, clean and simple. Convenient to main Train Station and old city.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Close to trains, close to entertainment district, large rooms (for Zurich), friendly staff, everything in walking distance.

    Close to a number of clubs with a large prostitution presence in the area.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Excellent location, in the old city. Staff was helpful. Good hotel for a weekend stay.

    Facilities in the hotel are poor for the price. No WIFI (of course possible via mobile but at extra cost). No lobby, bar or restaurant to speak of (but for breakfast it is okay and for dinner, you are straight in the old town so no issue either)

    Exceptional

    I was first given a modern room with graffiti, but disliked it and asked to change to a classically set room, without anything written on the walls. My request was immediately answered and very friendly receptionist changed my room to a better one. People always smiled and were helpful and always willing to assist in any matter.I have stayed in this hotel quite a few times and it will certainly be my hotel of choice next time i visit Zurich.

    Everything was lovely!

    Superb

    Price quality was very good. Just make sure you ask for a room on floor 3/4/5 and on the back side of the hotel... Otherwise it might be noisy.. There is no restaurant so no option for room service, a lot of take away restaurants are around the corner so you can just grab something there if you like...

    Fabulous

    The room was clean and came set up with an excellent coffee machine, internet etc.. great for a business trip or city stay. I forgot to bring an adapter and a correct one was readily available from the Reception.

    It would have been good to have instructions on how to operate the coffee machine, dummy-proof. Also the TV did not work well although I didn't make much use of it.

  • 6.2
    Good

    Closeness to centre of Zurich, ladies who served at breakfast were very nice and efficient, beds very comfortable.

    Hotel staff did not initially give us a room away from street noise as requested at time of booking. Bathrooms lack privacy - they are separated from the bedroom by a frosted glass door but everything can be seen and heard. Not for the shy person!

    Superb

    Close to the main station and main shopping street. They allow me to check in at 11 am which i can store my bag and go out for visit. Room is big with a living room . Modern style with nice staff. This is the best hotel i had ever stay in switzerland for a reasonable price.

    one of the A/C didnt work...

    Exceptional

    The hotel staff were approachable and well informed of all the questions we had. They were willing to help out with and offer anything extra needed. The room was clean and neatly kept everyday. The supplies were always renewed and the facilities were excellent. Surely this should be rated as a 4/5 star hotel rather than a 3 star hotel. Very pleased with the hotel as a whole.

    Great location, 5 minutes to main station and the shopping district.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is located in the center of Zurich, a 10-minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof (Train Station) and just around the corner from the major tram stop named 'Central'. That said, it happens to sit on a fairly quiet side street with several good small restaurants. The hotel's recent interior renovations are easy on the eye, and my room had excellent comfort - AC, duvet, great TV, an espresso machine, and a generous bathroom.

    Simple room and good location for all city activities

    Very good

    Nice location, good breakfast, friendly staff

    At least on the first floor there are "City rooms" which means they are decorated with graffiti - otherwise perfectly clean and well-equipped. Our room was facing the street and therefore a bit noisy (bar in the building opposite of the hotel).

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Breakfast is good and lady in charge of dining area was excellent, always friendly and spoke several languages very well - including English. Reception staff were helpful. Free internet access in reception area was very useful.

    The room we occupied had been renovated and a glass walled bathroom installed. This is the latest fad with hotels and is ridiculous. People like privacy when on the toilet. The old bathrooms were much better. (We stayed here two years ago before the renovation.)
