We lucked out to find this lovely hotel close to central Zurich the weekend of the enormous Zuri Fest. It was close enough to access the festival easily, but far enough away that it was quiet at night. The staff was friendly, breakfast was a plentiful buffet, and the room was pleasantly appointed (with a very large bathroom and walk...

A really nice, comfy hotel. They have low 'Japanese style' beds which are comfy, if a little strange. Apart from that, clean, relaxing, well situated with lovely staff and a good breakfast. I would definitely recommend staying here if in business.

I really loved my stay here. This is truly a design hotel in nature and name. From the beautiful artworks and installations in the hotel, through to the warm greeting and offer of a drink before you check in, it was really a pleasant change. The room was immaculate, beautifully furnished with nice big windows that could be opened, and...
