Located near to the lake Zurich you have all the places to see in walking distance. Parking is a Problem-no Parking service, no help with luggage. The staff at the reception seems stressed, luggsge all over the place. Our room "ambassador double" was gar too small for the price. We will not come back.

We had a nicely furnished but smaller room with a balcony facing the street, which made for good people watching. The bathroom was very nice, but the beds were a bit hard for me. Even on the street I was shocked at how quiet this place gets at night. It's not a bad walk from the train station (once you...

This small, boutique hotel is beautifully located adjacent to the opera house and a few steps from lake Zurich. The rooms are roomy for European standards, and have all the amenities of a 4-5 star hotel. The restaurant in the lobby level is very good, and not extremely pricey. Service was quite good. The two ladies I dealt with at...

This hotel is very nice. Beautiful views of Lake Zurich. I only gave 4 stars based on comparability of other hotels I stayed in during this trip.

The location is very good which is the only plus side. The rooms are on the smaller side which is expected but I don't see any extra touches that would set it apart from the other hotels at the same area. It's an average hotel.
