This hotel is very convenient if you are travelling by train as it is just a few minutes walk from the main railway station. It is also only a slightly longer walk into the old town and to Bahnhofstrasse for shopping. The only minor downside is that the area immediately around the hotel is rather lacking in character.
Our standard room was not large, but had lovely bed linen and the bathroom was beautifully finished with high quality fittings and a large shower. We had requested a quiet room, and were given one at the back of the hotel overlooking an internal courtyard which was indeed very quiet. And it had windows that opened! The free wifi worked well.
The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have experienced. An excellent range of all the usual components of a Swiss breakfast, including wonderful breads, as well as being able to press your own fresh orange juice, collect honey from honeycomb, and home-made jam. The kitchen would also prepare egg dishes to order. As we had a room rate that included breakfast, this made the hotel very good value for the price, considering that this is Zurich!
The hotel also has some charming touches in keeping with the MGallery brand; the Swiss chalet decor, the apples and fresh apple juice provided in the lobby, large bottle of sparkling water in the room, and Swiss chocolates delivered to the room each evening.
Service at check in and out was friendly and efficient. Staff were happy to provide restaurant recommendations. All in all we had a very pleasant stay and would come back.
