The Hotel St. Josef in Zurich is a real find! Located a 5 - to 10 -minute walk from virtually everything in Center City, including the university and the main train station as well as shopping and restaurants, it is clean, quiet, friendly and super-efficient in the classic Swiss manner. Our 2nd floor room in the annex next door was...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and would recommend staying here when in Zurich. The room is clean, small and quiet and the bed was large and comfortable. We stayed in winter and the heating made the room warm and cosy. The location was perfect and within walking distance to the main sites in Zurich as well...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend it. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, and location is hard to beat. We thought the breakfast was delicious - breads, cheese, juice, cereal - and a major savings deal since eating out in Zurich is so pricey. The coffee was great too. We would stay...

This hotel is a short walk from Zurich train station and is an easy walk to the old town. Rooms are fairly utilitarian and pretty small, but ok for a short stay. We found the beds very hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast was included in the room rate, a limited but fresh continental buffet was provided. No big complaints but we...

We picked this hotel based on the reviews on trip advisor, costs and location. We were glad we did. We got a little lost when we got off the train in Zurich station but we managed to find our way, once we realised the correct route we realised just how close it is to the old town. The reception staff...

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.
