“fine for a stopover”
Reviewed 19 February 2011

This is clearly not my favorite hotel when I have to stay over nignt in Zurich. However, the location is just perfect and also close to public transportation. Most important, price quality is good, especially for Zurich where prices can be extremely high, especially when occupancy rates are high. When occupancy rate is low, you can get good deals in some of the well know internet portals. All in all a good hotel I can recommend.

Reception staff was friendly, and spoke fluent English, which was great since I spoke no Swiss-German. I was given Room 412, a double [room] upon arrival. It had a double-sized bed, and it was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size bathroom with a bathtub, free shampoo, conditioner and lotion; there was a hair dryer; shower had strong water pressure; and the water was nice and hot. I didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but one could for CHF 18 per person for buffet or CHF 10 for continental. There was also a restaurant/lounge in the hotel. The location was great. Close to Hauptbahnhof (central train station), to Bahnhofstrasse, to Kunsthaus, close to everything, really. And so I loved the location and the hot water. What I liked least: housekeeping on two separate occasions opened the door without knocking after the room had already been serviced. Weird. And with the communication gap, I had no idea why they wanted/needed to get in the room. Oh well. No matter, I still liked the hotel and the room.

Stayed one night while in town with colleagues for work. Location meant you could get from the hotel door to check-in desk at the airport in 35-40minutes by using the trains from Zurich Hauptbahnhof.

The room was quite nice and decorated in a very tasteful way. Bathroom was modern, clean and spacious. Internet connection was not free but was fast and reliable.

The breakfast was mediocre with limited choice. The breakfast staff were attentive with coffees and the view out of the windows while having breakfast was pleasant.

Nothing is wrong with the hotel, the only problem is that the building next door is being torn down and they are replacing it with a new one. Work on the site starts relavitely early in the morning and results in no sleep after they start. Also the tram goes right past the hotel (downhill) which results noise from the tram brakes until the service stops at night. Not good for light sleepers.

Make sure not to have a room by t he tram, if you keep the window open during the night you might oversleep beacause you cramped up at night. Overall a nice clean hotel with small rooms if you are used to more space you might have an issue. The Hotel is located at Central station which is pretty close to everything in walking distance.

This hotel is in a great location, especially if you're arriving by train. It's just a short walk (even with luggage) from the station. We arrived at 4ish to find our room wasn't ready. We were allocated a couple of different rooms before we got one that we could use. We had booked a single room and a double room (with the double room costing quite a bit more) but were surprised to find that the single room had a bath, which the double didn't.
One pleasant surprise was a set of scales in the bathroom. Upon first noticing it I wondered why anyone would want to weigh themselves on holiday. But when we came to packing our luggage for an international flight, the scales were invaluable.
This hotel wasn't my first choice and I'd research more options next time..
Zurich was a lovely place to pass through, but all-round too expensive to stay any length of time.
