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... More

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... More

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 rooms are small as other people have mentioned - that really doesn't bother me as I am out and about in the city when I travel. The pictures of the rooftop deck... More

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.
