“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Upon arriving in Zurich we went to our hotel expecting to store our luggage until afternoon. Our rooms were ready so we got to check in right away. We had the family apartment #310. The place was a bit title for 4 adults but originally we only planned on 3. The bathroom was very nice with a self going across the entire wall that the sink was on so there was room for our toiletries. Both room and bath very clean and comfortable. Fantastic breakfast!

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

We selected this hotel based on the reviews, but were rather disappointed. We had the smallest bathroom we ever experienced in a hotel - the washbasin is a laugh. With the windows closed, the room was reasonably quiet, but too hot and stuffy, no fresh air, and with the windows open, there was a hell of a noise from the busy street, including frequent streetcars. At arrival (at 17.00) and departure (at 08.30) we had to manoeuver around a large pile of dirty laundry in the narrow corridor. Positive points: the hotel looks new, desk staff was friendly, the breakfast perfect and we could park near the front door.

Room Tip: Select a room with A/C and not in the front - or you won't sleep...

Yes you have right in the front of our Hotel is a street with streetcars. But our Hotel have 5 different room categories. We have big and small rooms with big bathrooms or small bathrooms, rooms on the back, rooms on the front , rooms with air condition etc.... We can say that we have for every wishes our guests a room when we know this wishes.
We have already undertaken adjustments in the area of dirty laundry in the floor. It is no anymore dirty laundry on the floor for that we have now laundry trolleys.

It would be nice if we could prove ourselves during your next visit and to show that we can be better than the last time.

Usually I stay in business hotels in Zurich, which are generally good but very expensive - but then I'm not paying. This time I had to cough up myself and wanted somewhere quietish but not miles away. Took a punt on this place and very pleased. The room itself is nothing exceptional but would be large enough for a couple for a few days. The location is the standout plus point here - it's quite possible to walk into the old town (~20 mins), or to Bahnhofstr. (~15 mins), but the hotel is on two tram lines as well which makes getting around even easier.

The breakfast is also very good - which is pretty standard for Swiss hotels, but for the price this is definitely an added bonus. Next time I'm in Zurich I'll stop trawling hotel websites and just book this.

I stayed there for over 2 weeks while on a business trip. The bed was comfortable, room was cozy and the hotel was quiet and relaxing. The breakfast was nice, though the menu was same everyday and kind of sounded monotonous eating same stuff for 15 days :( The front desk ladies were very friendly and helpful.
The location is also great. Close proximity to Old town, Zurich HB - the main train station, Banhoffstrasse, museums, tram station, mosque, halal food restaurants.
Looking forward to my next stay.

Small hotel with some oddly shaped rooms, but very conveniently located. Walking distance to main train station and Banhoffstrasse for shopping. Convenient tram stop one block away. Friendly staff and best of all, reasonable pricing for Zurich. Nice breakfast included with large selection (especially yummy breads and cheeses). We stayed here on Christmas week and it was quiet.

Room Tip: Tram drives by front of hotel. Ok in winter with closed windows. In summer ask for room facing sid...

At least my room you entered through the bathroom, which is somewhat odd, and not ideal if outside it is rainy or snowy. The room was nice and clean, good wifi and a very nice breakfast buffet. Also an easy walking distance from the centre and well connected if you need to go to ETH honggerberg.

Dear Katrien S,
Many thanks for taking the time to give some feedback.
We are very glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay.
It is right that we have 3 rooms where you enter through the bathroom. Some people like this room so much that they want always the same room for every stay with us. If you visit us again we can give you for sure another nice room.
We hope that you will continue to recommend us and we thank you kindly.
