“Expensive, but central and nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

I spent a couple of pleasant nights in this hotel. It is very close to the station (what I needed) that can connect you to any place in the country and the airport. It is not cheap, but no hotel is cheap in Zurich. It is a very expensive city. This was at least more or less affordable and very central. You can walk to almost everywhere from here, from the lake to the cathedral and most of the landmarks.

Breakfast was included and the buffet had all that I needed and even more.

My single room was quite small, but was very clean and had lots of things in it. Nice new TV, coffee and tea facilities, fridge, air conditioning, safe, toiletries, wifi, nice ensuite bathroom with hairdryer and nice towels.

The room was a bit too warm, so I asked for a lighter cover for the bed. They didn’t have any other available, so had to do with the one I had and the air conditioning. The staff was very nice though.

They can save your luggage if needed as well. My room was in the last floor that had a nice terrace with chairs and a table. There’s a huge Migros supermarket and shop opposite the hotel, very handy for buying food. Also recommended visiting the close Sprüngli shops for some nice Swiss chocolate.

The title says it all. The rooms are not large, but everything worked. One step from everything in Central Zurich and not pretentious. Can't give five stars because it's not that sort of hotel, but will come back next time. Comfy bed, clean, adequate breakfast,good shower.

Very convenient location, close to the train station and in the city center within walking distance to many popular destinations. The breakfast is very good.
The only disappointment was that we paid more than 2,000 Swiss franks for three rooms and were not offered late check out or a room that we could use to change from business suites to jeans when we stopped by to pick up our bags before leaving.
Rooms are quite small by American standards.
Overall it is a good choice

Arrived on a Sunday night and the very helpful receptionist directed me to a wonderful nearby Italian restaurant (which I will be reviewing separately). Everything about the hotel was just fine (including the location). I would gladly stay again!

Excellent location a 10-min walk from the main station. Rooms are small (fairly standard for a large European city) but clean. Amenities include coffee maker and safe, although the latter is unfortunately too small for a laptop. Comfortable bed. Bathroom amenities could be better (only soap provided). Good WiFi included. Excellent buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. Street noise can be a problem especially over the weekend - ear plugs a must. For runners, the Lake Zurich Promenade is less than 10 min away.

Great location, close to about anything you want to see or do. Friendly staff and a nice little breakfast cafe attached. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Big bathtub is nice.

The price was reasonable in a city that isn't cheap! I'll stay here again if I'm traveling solo.

Room Tip: Room 206 is good and very quiet.

By train? only a short distance from Bahnhof, close to Globus Department Store(s) and others for your shopping pleasure. Being in a very central location, the hotel offers easy access to much of the downtown area of Zurich. Comfortable, clean rooms, a fine buffet breakfast and nice staff.
We will return every time we are in Zurich!
