Every detail at Lady's First is considered and thoughtful. Charming sweet service accompanies the delicious healthy! breakfast buffet. Great way to begin a fun day in Zurich. Stroll Seefeldstrasse or by the lake with ease to Bellevue or Birkliplatz. Nice shops nearby to view Swiss design and fashion. We will be back:)

I am based in Paris but has to travel regularly to Zurich for my job. I tested different hotels and I now always go to Lady's First. It's calm, rooms and breakfast are fine.

I stayed at the Lady's First Hotel for one night only, for a business trip. I had a pleasant stay, the hotel turned out to be fairly quiet, and the employees were friendly and helpful, they also speak english fluently.

The breakfast was quite mixed and good.

Rooms are not super modern altough they were very clean, and the bed was awesome. The only thing I would add is window shutters or more obscure curtains.

Room Tip: Try not to be close to the elevator.

this is a simple, yet clean hotel. it is a bit far from the places i wanted to see, bu tlikely there was a tram stop not far from the hotel. this was the best way to get to and from the train station. The staff was nice, and breakfast was good and included. i didn't use the spa as it cost extra and i didn't really have time.

Overall, I had a very pleasant experience. the staff was obliging and very friendly, and spoke English well. I would go back, but for sure I would ask for an upgrade. They SHOULD NOT put guests, who have paid well in advance on the first floor close to the elevator, and stairs. This is poor PR. They should know better . Actually it made me angry! And , on checkout I told them.
I think they should give me a coupon to use at a later date, or refund some of my money.

Room Tip: Ask!! Make sure you ask where your room is, especially if you have booked and paid in advance.

Lad'ys First hotel has been my favourite for at least past 6 years. Yes, it is very conveniently situated close to my company's building on Bellerive, barely 5' to walk, but there are more reasons than just this one to explain why I wouldn't go elsewhere.
No-fuss, simple, well-designed, reasonably quiet (no trafic through the street, although one can hear some faint rumbling from adjacent main street at peak times), very clean, very silent elevator, nice rooms, excellent bedding, WiFi in all rooms, private bathroom/toilet in every room, most windows equipped with roller blinds that can keep the sun out in the morning, etc...
Breakfast is a good moment in Lady's First, not especially because of a very large offer on the buffet, although there is plenty, but because you'll find here the same atmosphere of friendly and pleasant welcome with good smiles and a total absence of stress that you would get from the desk upon your arrival.
You want a detail that gives it all? Everytime I would get into my room, just coming from airport, I would find a nice card with a few words of welcome and thanks for having once again chosen the Lady's First, together with a few fruits on a plate!
And yes, by the way, despites its name, this is not a Ladies Only place.
Only drawback: a very creaking wooden floor in some rooms which means you can be awakened earlier than expected if one of these rooms is above your head...

Room Tip: Just avoid room 102 which is situated just above the kitchen used to prepare breakfast: the rumbling...

I had to book a last minute room in the area. The hotel reception was welcoming, I was upgraded to a superior room which I found cosy, clean and confortable. Bathtub could have been slightly bigger. Breakfast was good and varied, quick employees, kind and all speaking a very good English. Positive experience indeed.
