I think this place is improving. Service very good .... .....and breakfast better - mostly cold buffet but with crispy streaky bacon and eggs of your choice (as long your choice is scrambled !) on offer. Great coffee.

In all the hotel is good... Rooms nicely decorated and breakfast is really nice with a selection if pastries, cereal, eggs and bacon. Bad points would be the wifi, which cuts out a lot and makes you reconnect. The TV is a big disappointment. 7 uk channels listed... 2 just display a message saying not connected. The other five just... More

Good hotel. Great cozy feel. A bit pricey. Staff is consistently courteous. Good pillows, blankets and shower water pressure. Right near Enge station. Has classy rich feel to this quaint bouquet hotel.

We had absolutely terrible internet service in room 315. The connection wouldn't hold and kept on dropping. Finally I had to go out and buy a 20CHF SIM card to get a good connection. This doesn't sync with a $500 +\- hotel room.

This is a very fine business hotel, though it's also great for visiting Zürich for leisure (as we did). Staff is professional and very friendly. Had a big and light standard room.
