“Reduced to the max - perfect design is not necessarily expensive.”
Reviewed 13 April 2011

I loved the way the rooms are furnished. There is no junk - only the things you really need.
Especially the bathroom is superb - small but very practical.
The breakfast is not fancy but healthy and good, solid food.

Hotel has no desk or bath. Currently a building site. I actually ended up here after being told my room had been double booked at the Lady's First Design Hotel. I refused to stay as was freaked out by the guidance on prostituion in the services directory. Thankfully it said it was not accepted but any hotel which has customers that need reminding is not somewhere I would ever choose to stay.

Unfortunately you can't find anything cheaper and central in the city. Very tiny rooms. Enough space for just the bed, no closets. Some of them directly on a busy street and very loud. Included Breakfast is minimal- bread, cheese, yogurt and coffee. All in one soap in the shower- hair dryer use against a 50CHF deposit. Fine if you just need to sleep there. Expensive youth-hostel style hotel.

Not what I was expecting for $200 a night. The room didn't even have carpet. The floor was painted cement! No frills, no amenities, not even shampoo.

No doubt that this was a 2 star hotel. Regardless it was clean and safe. I was just expecting a lot more for the price.

I'm only recommending it for the right person that knows what they're getting into it. After all, the hotel didn't do anything wrong and hotels in Zurich are very expensive. It is indeed a 2 star hotel.

Dear guests,
Upon many guest requests we have ajusted the variety on our breakfast buffet. For a good start into the day we offer in addition to our usual two kinds of housebread, crispy croissants; One 3rd Swiss Cheese, one additional fruit flavored yogurt, sliced ​​pork and turkey meat / sausage and pickled fruits. Bon appetit!

The location of this hotel was very good about 5 minutes from the train station / tram stops and the main attractions. The room itself was very small and very basic, definitely no frills. The bathroom was even smaller just about enough space to turn around and no toiletries were supplied. The double bed only had a single duvet on so had to ask for a 2nd duvet. There wasn’t even a wardrobe to hang your clothes in; just a couple of hangers on hooks on the wall, and the floor was just painted concrete no carpets or mats for comfort.
The breakfast however was really nice, a good selection of food and nicely presented.
For a new hotel it’s need a bit more comfort and thought into the rooms.
