A very convenient place to stay with everything within walking distance or easy access using the trams. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and the staff welcoming and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable with an excellent walk in shower. Continental breakfast was good.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Just a few min walk from Central Station and close to Central tram stop, Hotel St. Josef is one of the best 3- star hotels in Zurich. The room rate is reasonably set (by Zurich standard, of course). I got a room in the annex building - I was impressed with such a generous size... More

We liked staying at this hotel. There was 3 of us and it was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was great! Location is also pretty good but not in the heart of everything. You have to go up a hill or some steps to get there.

Hotel St. Josef really has it all -- a great location, an incredibly friendly staff, and clean, spacious rooms. The breakfast is very "European" -- no frills, continental, with no special anything -- but as long as you know that going in, it's fine. We did not eat at the restaurant or order room service, but the menu looked great,... More

We stayed 3 nights on September and had a great stay. The location is perfect on the edge of the old town. It is a 10 minute walk from the station (up a steep flight of stairs or a ramp if you walk a bit further on). There are many bars and restaurants close by as well as the tram... More

We were here during a conference at the University. The Hotel has very friendly and helpful staff and a good breakfast buffet. The location is ideal to discover the city of Zuerich. Very close to University.
