It's very central and opposite the lovely veggie restaurant Hitl. The room wasn't big but was modern and tidy. Air con wouldn't get the room cool enough for me (it seemed fixed on warm) but for the price and location overall pretty good.

A well located hotel. Close to Bahnhofstrasse, restaurants, transport. Clean with comfortable rooms. The room wich I had booked was not available on check-in so they gave me an upgrade. Full breakfast. My 317 apartment was totally silent. I am very satisfied. I will be back and recommend it. The whole personnalle do a great job.

Rooms are modern and very quiet. Electrically controlled radiators and full A/C conditioning system means you will have no problem regulating temperature of the room. Beds are... More

I was surprised how much of a value this hotel was given the very expensive landscape of Zurich. The location was great -- minutes to the central rail station and to the Old Town. The room was modern and surprisingly large. The included breakfast was quite good. There is an on site bar to unwind after a day out. The... More
