Walk everywhere in Zurich. Just one block from the water. 10mins walk to the best picture spots and shopping. Room was clean and spacious. Nice breakfast and friendly staff. A little voice from the street but nothing you can't deal with. Would def recommend specially if you r traveling with friends.

I come here 4 - 5 times a year, and it's always a surprise how friendly the staff is. It may not be the most luxurious hotel in town, but an excellent price/quality ratio. Clean, modern rooms, not too large but well equipped. And right in the middle of everything: restaurants, bars the main railway station. An excellent choice

My wife and I stayed over for a few days in Zurich and arrived by train at the main train station. The hotel is easy enough to find as it is just down the cobblestone street. Pulling luggage down the street is noisy and a little challenging. What I liked about our stay were: 1. The reception was very friendly...

Immaculate family run hotel. We stayed here to enable us to enjoy New Hears Eve in Zurich and would highly recommend. Convenient for old town, riverside promennade, main railway station and the public car park. Lovely restaurants located close by....the one directly opposite was wonderful for supper. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel.

The location was perfect, the price was a good deal, the room was comfortable, and the staff were friendly and efficient. We have one child, and the "family room" with three beds was perfect. There would not be space for a family of four in one room, though.
