It's a bit like a premier inn or travel lodge (uk hotels), with little to offer other than rooms and breakfast room. However the place is clean and tidy, and actually a nice little hotel in a really convenient location. I've been staying here for work regularly for the last few months and going to stay so longer still. They've been accommodating about room choices etc.
Hotel has free wifi, which can be fast enough to stream but not all the time. you have to get a free 24hr username and password from reception. a little annoying, but you just ask every day.
It's on a main street which can be noisy but the rooms seem very tranquil when in them. I've never had any issues with noise, but others I know had on front facing rooms. higher you go the better.
If I was coming to zurich personally now, i'd come here.
