Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

To make this our hotel of choice in Zurich must be worth something for an unassuming hotel. We like the quiet and informal nature of the hotel, yet it's close enough to the centre to feel only a step or two away from it. The breakfast is OK, lifted by one of the best birchermuesli with masses of grated apple....

1 block from the lake - and you can walk along the lake to the old town. Modern interiors in an old building, nice DIY coffee station in the lobby. Many nice cafes and bars nearby. Great bathroom! Yes, the parquet floors squeak but they didn't bother me. Overall, we loved this place. And it has a wheeelchair lift to...

We had a great time at the Hotel! the hotel is very boutique and the hotel staff is friendly. There are a few restaurants around the hotel so you dont have to travel far a quick bite. The italian pizza restaurant has great food! The hotel is also a short walk from the tram service.

We booked online (from Canada) without ever being to Zurich before on the word of our son on student exchange. The building is lovely and located nicely in the city (very quiet). Everyone we dealt with on premise was very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast offered is well worth the cost - very good coffee!

Good location in Zurich to Lake, Opera and city center. Stable quality and small improvements in details every year we come here. Makes us want to come back. Excellent Price/ Quality. We enjoyed the first days of spring weather.

Smooth check-in/out. Friendly staff. I liked the fair trade body products, the slippers, the bathrobe and the kettle. The decoration is not worth mentioning but the room is spotless. Plenty of space above the washbasin for all your toiletries! As in many hotels, the curtains do not block sunlight totally, take an eye mask if it bothers you. I really...

Really nice hotel I thought. Sadly the person in the room above me was nocturnal. In itself that is not a problem as I'm a sound sleeper but there are no carpets and the squeak squeak, clumping was incessant. (Even when I had earplugs in). The hotel did move me the next day to give them credit. Fell asleep in...

Despite the name, men are welcomed in the hotel, other than the wellness area. Charming hotel with a nice mix of modern ameneties in a traditional building. Super friendly staff, great breakfast and big quiet rooms very close to the lake.
