Well here is expensive Zurich .... it is a nice clean place but pretty much expensive for what you get. Rooms are much looking like modest 4 stars hotel, bathroom is pretty much basic .... as name indicated very central . Restaurant bar is nice and breakfast buffet very good.

Dear Guest Thank you for your visit and for having taken the time to share your honest opinion. You are completely right, Zurich is an expensive city. Compared to other hotels our prices are quiet reasonable for a four star hotel in the city center of Zurich. In the moment we are renovating our bath rooms in the 4th floor....

Location is superb - right off the river bank, close to railway station, shops and restaurants. The room size was adequate and bathroom recently redecorated. WIFI was lightning fast, which made evening work a breeze. There is little that can be said about the downsides of this place, maybe aside from the fact that cleaners race to clean the rooms...

Very cosy and quiet downtown hotel located in a very best place of Zurich. Located 100 metres out of the Central Rail Station, next to the all public transprt stops. You may enjoy a very nice view from the rooms located on higher floors. Very tastefull breakfasts. Good music in the evenings.

Really convenient to hauptbahnof central tram stop and city center. Lovely warm lobby friendly staff and compact but well appointed rooms. Easy access to airport on day of departure. Coop grocery store beside it too and lovely pod coffee in room (inexpensive breakfast possible therefore!). All in all a great city center location for a short stay.

The only reason that I am ranking 2 this hotel is because of the nice location and the fact that the costs is not high. That being said, is so petty to waste potential in such way. The hotel is so old style, the rooms must have been renovated in the '60 and I am not sure when it was...

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.

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.
