So good for the price! What a pleasant surprise! We arrived by train and the hotel is just opposite the train station - so easy! The room was a good size and very clean. Love the location - just a short walk into the old town as well as the main shopping area. The bar is the biggest surprise! Fantastic...

we loved this hotel. It is a very short walk to the train station and "old zurich" is also right down the street. It is a beautiful area for tourists who want to shop, see the Limmat river, and also eat at great restaurants. You must stay here!

The location was ideal as it was close to the main train station with many good dining options nearby. The room was very small and the pillows were quite flat despite having additional pillows available. Also the bed sheets had a suspicious stain however they were changed the following day. Room was otherwise can and tidy. Staff were professional.

Stayed at this hotel in February 2016, so a bit of a late review but nevertheless. Great room, comprehensive buffet breakfast, excellent Zurich view and convenient central location. Excellent hotel to stay at in Zurich.

Right across the bridge over the Limat river 100 meters from the central station and a stone throw from the old city. Old but tastefully refurbished stylish hotel with excellent rooms and bathrooms. Friendly staff. Underground garage (against payment). The hotel is clean as you can expect in Switzerland.

Stayed as a couple for one night. We loved the location - so close to everything and the main station. Pretty sure we got upgraded as we had booked a standard double and ended up with what appeared to be a suite (dual aspect too).

Situated in a good location and attractive from the outside, the hotel was a little disappointing once inside. The hotel seemed short of staff with only one person on reception having to deal with several guests, one of whom seemed to be having trouble with his reservation. This meant that there was a considerable wait before checking in. The room...
