This is nice hotel that offers quality service for reasonable price. Stayed here for 2 nights while on business trip. Walking distance from UZH, city center, lake Zurich. Would recommend it and stay again here if back in Zurich.

The hotel is the transformation of an old Zurich house with its charm and nooks. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent location, in a quiet neighborhood and close to the University and ETH Zurich. A very nice cafe adds to the charm of the hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be clean, friendly and in a good location for our requirements. We experienced no problems at all, from check in to check out. This is just what we needed after traveling quite a distance.

I picked this hotel based on the fellow traveler reviews. My experience was ok but not stellar. To start positive, check-in was streamlined and breakfast service was excellent. The room was fairly large in European terms. The location is excellent. On the negative side, Wi-Fi in the room wasn't fast (but was quite fast in the breakfast room). I cranked...

Hotel was easy to get to from the airport, just a 20min tram then a 10min walk, and only a 15min walk from the city centre. We were able to check in early, and the front desk attendant was so friendly and helpful, and gave us lots of ideas as to what to see and do. The staff all spoke...

Very nice hotel! Great shower and comfortable beds (they are separate -FYI for Americans not used to that). It's in a quiet area not far (walking) from the center of town. There's also a nice cafe and restaurant attached.

I stayed here for one night while in town for work. A modern and minimalistic style hotel, yet with a nice and welcoming feel and friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are great for working and breakfast buffet was of high quality. A nice café is connected, but didn't get the time to try it, though it looked good. Although this...
