If you can get passed the loud street noise ( cars, trucks and trams ), then this is the hotel for you ! The best asset of this hotel is also it's worst liability: LOCATION. Only half an hour walk to all major attractions, tram stops and supermarket about 50 meters away. We have to leave the windows open at...

Small hotel like business hotel in Japan but clean and convenient. There is small kitchen in the room. Coop mart is near to this hotel. It is good point because Zurich is very expensive.

Price for rooms were a bit expensive. The rooms appeared cleaned but were very dated and dark could use some updating. The bathrooms could use some hooks to hang towel, etc on. Breakfast was good and hot. Friendly staff but they were short on housekeeping staff.

Stayed here for 3 nights in August. Room was very clean and we appreciated the cooking facilities as Zurich is possibly the most expensive place i have ever been. Self service check in was difficult as our name was spelt wrong, however when the male owner arrived he was helpful. My husband made the mistake of leaving the key at...

Hard to find the building for the first time. If you arrived Friday after 5 pm it’s too bad for you, if you have any questions. The room is extremely minimalistic: you hit your feet against the edges of the bed, hard to reach the garbage bin, you can’t keep the window opened when you seat at the table. There...

Firstly, in such an expensive city this place is very inexpensive....which is a bonus in itself - The fact the apartment was brilliant, along with the staff and amenities was just a bonus. We were only there for two nights, so the price of it was all we worried about; after all, we were only really sleeping for a few...

We stayed here recently for 4 nights to visit family and found it to be spotlessly clean and functional . Quiet due to shutters and those amazing double glazed windows to keep out noise and cold. Little kitchenette with microwave and hot plate so can cook simple meal or reheat. We did our own breakfasts and coffee before venturing out....

Far away from the center, very bad internet, this is an apartment, discretion is good but not well organised. Big room, very independent. But no help at all, difficult to find the place, paying at the check-in, good room, spacious ( double superior) with small fridge but building is ugly
