Reviewed 31 December 2013

We stayed at Hotel St Josef during 20hr (overnight) layover from Malaga to NYC. After being shocked by the $64 cab ride (to go 7-10 minutes, that's double NYC prices), we were really happy with the hotel. It's in a great location, right in the heart of the Old City, shopping, restaurants and a 10 min walk down the river to Lake Zurich. It's in a picturesque area, the quaint side streets are fabulous to wander in the evening. We had delicious hot cherry wine with rum and candied almonds while strolling along the river. The hotel itself is immaculate (as is ALL of Zurich), everything is very modern and the beds were the most comfortable I've slept in in a hotel. We forgot an adapter to charge out phones and iPad (packed in checked luggage), and the hotel had extras to lend us. The also have a shuttle to the airport, $35 for 2ppl. Since we had to leave at 7am and breakfast didn't start until 7:30, they made us a brown-bag lunch (cheese sandwiches, fruit, drinks) to take with us (breakfast was included with our room price). I would highly recommend this hotel! They go that "extra-step" that is so rare to find anymore (and without us having to ask!!).

The Hotel St Josef is in an excellent location in the heart of the city. It is only a 10 minute walk from the main train station. While it is just off a main road through the city, it's position, set back from the road means the rooms are quiet.

The rooms were modern and clean. We visited in winter, when the temperatures were freezing outside, yet the indoors at the hotel the rooms were very warm and comfortable. We slept well and heard no noise from our neighbours or outside.

The breakfast was included in our room rate. While I have seen a more generous selection of produce on hotel buffets in the past, there was a good selection of continental food available (fresh meat, bread, cheese, eggs, cereals, yoghurts, fruit etc).

The reception staff were friendly and helpful.

Chosen by us for location it was pleasant after a transatlantic trip with no sleep to find the staff had contacted our friends in Zurich to arrange a dinner meeting. The next day after storing our bags for us as we toured the city, they pleasantly suggested a lift by their personal car to the train station. Great service! We were able to walk to the Train station with little effort. Very convenient.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the annex.

This hotel is conveniently located to the Old Towne, river, train station and trams.
It is well maintained, clean and quiet.
Breakfast was sufficient.
Being in Switzerland, price was high, which is the norm.

We only stayed here for one night passing through Zurich n November but were very happy with the Hotel.

It is a very easy 5 minute walk form the main train station and was also easy to get a tram to the Airport at the end.

A 5 minute walk also takes you into the old town and the tourist parts of Zurich.

The room was very clean and large enough the beds comfortable. FREE Wi- Fi was a bonus that was great and was not limited to numbers of devices.

Checking in and out was very friendly and the staff very helpful. My Partner was ill on our departure day and they let us stay on in the room for an extra hour at no charge and were very kind.

The breakfast was only continental which was a shame but was still of god quality.

We can be quite fussy but really you cannot go wrong staying here - highly recommended

Close to main train station. Within walking distance to most everything. Helpful staff. Clean. Great price for Zurich. Big room. Our room, on the 3rd floor, was facing the Main Street, except for busses driving by, it was pretty quiet in October. We borrowed a couple of complimentary umbrellas one day when it rained. Would definitely stay there again.
