“Good value”
Reviewed 7 September 2008

We arrived in Zurich in the midst of a heat wave of about 90 degrees, so we were disappointed that Kafischnaps, a pension in Zurich, did not have air conditioning. However, we checked in during the morning and were able to shower (shared but immaculately clean bathrooms). The room was sparse but adequate. They didn't change the bed (duvet and bottom sheet only) every day or the towels. The staff was very cordial but nice. This pension is above a very popular cafe/bar, which is very convenient for a drink or breakfast, but annoying during a late night soccer game (the Eurocup was occurring) and when the staff played music and did dishes (lots of clanging). The breakfast was included and consisted of coffee with cream, large croissant, and french bread served with butter and jam. Lots of carbs, but with the price of food at Zurich restaurants, we ate it up to stay full. It's a good place to stay, right on the bus and about two blocks from the main tram to downtown Zurich. Fortunately at least public transportation is inexpensive in Zurich! We left the pension around 6 am to catch an early train after a 4 day stay, and the power was off in all of the bathrooms--we never figured out why we had to shower in the dark! All in all a good place to stay, certainly a step above a hostel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
KAFISCHNAPS is a coffee bar situated in the heart of Zurich, between the districts of Wipkingen and Unterstrass. It is a young, typically "Zurich" location - a blend of good old-fashioned "Beiz" tradition* and modern, sophisticated lifestyle. Hipsters share a table with fundies, kids get their Babccino and even your mom would feel at home in our little place. In addition to the eatery, the Kafischnaps houses a small private hotel with five superbly furnished rooms, which is ideal for tourists who want to experience life in Zurich at close quarters. * Beiz is the Swiss German word for pub or inn ... more   less
