I live in Zurich and stayed here for a week while my apartment was being renovated. Location is great. About 5 mins out of the city and very close to the main station, main shopping street (Bahnhofstrasse) and the old town. You can either walk or catch a tram which is just outside the hotel. Our room was on the...

We were quite satisfied with our stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were pleasant and polite and we were very happy that our room was ready for us early in the day since we had just arrived from a long trans-Atlantic flight. The location was a bit farther from the train station than we had expected...

Zurich hotels are very expensive. It didn't meet my expectation. The hotel is not spacious, especially the elevator. Its location is in a quiet neighborhood, 15 mins walk to central station. The shower room was good. And they provided nice breakfast. The employees were all nice. They were very friendly like hostel reception!!

Nice clean hotel with very helpful staff. Great location, only a few blocks from City Center. Only short fall was no AC and it was hot. Window opened but no screen. Breakfast was fine and open early. Tram station very close and we took it up the hill several times.

This was our third visit and as before we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Lovely large rooms, comfy beds, delightful staff, wonderful breakfast. Can't imagine ever staying anywhere else in Zurich. It's quite an uphill hike from the station if you're on foot, but worth it.

Really clean hotel, with very friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is very good with a great selection to choose from. It's only a short walk in to town or you could catch the tram if you don't fancy the walk. Lovely welcome when I arrived with a cold tea and wet cool towel needed with the heat at the time. I...

The wonderful, helpful staff makes this a top-notch hotel. Our stay in the best room (top floor) was perfect for our week-long stay. Two balconies, one on each bank of windows, are delightful, with great city views. Unfortunately it's very hot this week, in the 90's, and the big windows let the room heat up fast. We kept the curtains...
