If this place was cheap, I would give it better reviews. So, average price = average review.


Wifi on first floor was terrible. Pretty much unusable (I don't know about the other floors). So I needed to come to reception to use the Internet.

Shower was dribbling and not working properly

Booked a double bed, but they mad up two singles and then pushed them together. Not even connected properly

Thin walls so you can hear people talking in the next room

Not enough lights in the room so it was difficult to see properly.


Good location

Large room

I stayed at Hotel Scheuble on a business trip to Zurich. The hotel is conveniently located for the town centre, with many bars, restaurants, etc. directly on the doorstep. It is also quite close to the university. I will not stay there again though. Upon arrival, I was greeted by 'no, we do not have a reservation in your name, are you sure you were booked to be here?'... They found a room for me - and, miraculously, upon checkout they claimed that they had, indeed, found my original reservation. :( That whole malarkey cost me a lot of stress, as I felt like I was treated like an idiot by the hotel staff, pretty much all the way through. Their card machine didn't work upon checkout (I tried two cards, both of them with funds), so I had to walk to the station to take money out to pay my bill. Again, they made me feel like there was something wrong with me. The ladies serving week-day breakfast are rude and not customer-minded ('Room number?' with an angry expression... rather than 'good morning, could I ask for your room number, please?').
The rooms... oh my... My room was tiny, with a bathroom squeezed in. It was all new, sure, but there was no room to navigate at all. The bathroom walls are made from (see-through) glass and the doors don't shut properly. If you're considering sharing: don't unless you are happy for your partner to stand right next to you while you're on the loo.... (no extractor fans, as far as I could tell - so the main bedroom window needs opening for any smells to escape).
Altogether a ridiculous place. Best to be avoided.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a total of three nights (first two nights of our trip, and then the last night). Here are some of the pros and cons:

-Close to Zurich main station. It's about a 10 minute walk from there
-Lot's of restaurants nearby
-Rooms feel clean and look modern
-They had these motion-sensored lights at the bottom of the bed that provided just the right amount of lighting for the middle of the night if you needed to use the bathroom
-Outlets with built-in USB ports
-Safe in the room

-When we checked in, we opened the door to the room and someone else's stuff was already in there. Makes you wonder how many people could potentially have access to your room/stuff. They ended up upgrading us to a suite which was SUPER nice. But even the regular rooms (which we stayed in on our last night) are pretty spacious.
-Luggage storage is basically just them keeping it by the front desk in plain view
-You can hear the church bells throughout the night, and people on the street yelling

Despite the cons, I'd still be happy to stay here again if I ever decide to come back to Zurich.
