First off it`s a apartment (studio kitchenette) not a hotel. Hotel Ascot (3 minute walk ) owns or lease this building and rent the studio apts cheaper price then their hotel rooms. The other review on this place said it was noisy. I thought it was quiet and I stayed there Dec 28 thru Jan 1 09/10. There is a tram stop right outside the door but there isnt any bell or horn anything and there electric. I think though that builiding is not very insulated against noise. The neighbourhood is very quiet mix of small business and older people. Very safe and clean area. The building has been re-done in the last year or so. I stayed in room number one, first floor, first room on the left. Parquet floor and Ikea style cabinets. Flat screen tv with cable, phone. Complete kitchen with plates, dishes, cutlery, refrigerator etc, *Note* to turn on the power at the kitchenette is to push the left cabinet door until it clicks. You get the key at Hotel Ascot, pretty good staff, good command of english.
Zurich is very very expensive. I paid 152$ US a night through Orbitz.com (best deal) any other time would be cheaper. 35$ a day parking in their building at the hotel 1$ (chf) swiss franc = 1.03$ US so its close. Monzon internet provider 8$ CHF a hour or 14.90$ CHF for 4 hours and up. I thought it was great location especially for New Years eve (13 minute walk) to the bridge and the party. Tram right outside to one stop to train station and other trams to anywhere , everywhere. 10 minutes to famous shopping. Mc Donalds at the train station, Starbucks across the street from Mc Donalds, food market in the train station and anything you need in that train station. All in all its a great deal with the kitchenette. Quarter Pounder meal upgraded to super size 14$, Large coffee nut and piece of cake at Starbucks
16$. Ouch! 1 box of 3 stacks in like ritz crackers at the market 6.90$ Bring your VISA...
The bad thing at the apartment was the cheap lousy uncomfortable small mattress and bed itself. I couldnt figure out the control on the heat. too hot while I was there. No AC there for summer time. It was the best deal for what I wanted from Zurich. I spent hours looking for the best deal. Nothing is cheap in Zurich except that lousy mattress...
