Reviewed 7 February 2012

Zurich hotels are expensive so this hotel is excellent value for money. Great location only 5 minutes walk from the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station). Note: don't haul bags up the steps. Walk about another 150m up the road and you will find a ramp which comes up direction in front of the hotel. Be sure to ask for one of the newly refurbished rooms in the second building (800 room numbers). Very large room - well appointed and comfortable. Small bathroom and no bathtub but for the price that's ok. Tea and coffee making facilities provided in the room. Dining room (Timeout Restaurant) is very pleasant and staff (a young team) speak english. The breakfast was excellent and we had dinner twice in the evening. The food was excellent and again great value for money. Overall hard to fault for the price and the staff are pleasant and obliging.

Room Tip: Ask for a one of the newly refurbished rooms in the second wing - rooms are 800 numbers. We booked...

My family and I stayed here numerous times!

This is a great hotel, located just minutes away from the Zurich HB train station.
We truly enjoy the personal service provided by all the front desk staff and the servers at Time-Out Restaurant (their breakfast is amazing).

We never really felt like guests, we felt more like family!

We will definitely return to Hotel St. Joseph when traveling to Zurich, and I have already recommended this hotel to a number of friends, who also loved it!

Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, and you can´t beat the location.

Die Familie Obrist Pereira bedankt sich bei Ihnen herzlich und wuescht Ihnen weiterhin viel Erfolg!

Stayed here in December 2011 with my wife and two daughters. An easy 10-minute walk from the main railway station. Friendly woman at receptionist. One of my daughters said that she found her the most polite of all hotel staff members we have come across in Europe. We got a good, comfortable room big enough for the four of us. Breakfast was ok - nothing flash, but still good.

The hotel has an ideal position between the central station and both universities (ETH and University of Zurich) which means the about 60% of its clients belong to academia. It is nice, the rooms are proper, I had a modern bathroom; broadband Wifi is complimentary, the breakfast buffet is rich. Thus the hotel fully deserves its three stars.

We only had one night at Hotel St. Josef but were quite pleased. It is close to the Central Station. Remember to check out special exhibits in the Central Station such as a Farmers Market and Christmas Market. Cross the Limmat River then a slight uphill/step walk towards the University. We had a large room with twin beds but a small bathroom. Nicely decorated and clean. The location was great for seeing the main sights of Central Zurich on foot. There are a variety of restaurants nearby.
