“one of the most decent 'budget' options in ZH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Been there twice, was given the suite on top. It's absolutely worth it, beautiful balcony w/view, super clear with lots of sunlight, nicely furnished...Incredibly pleasant for something in that price range. Quieter than normal rooms as well.

But i've had the normal rooms, too and they're totally worth it. Yes, it's a noisy area - Langstrasse is nearby, all the nightlife happens to be located in this area, but it remains pleasant, with a great great staff, with a family, cosy vibe.
Everybody's helpful and pleasant, super clean. Anyway, nothing stands to comparison in Zurich for such a price.

There is high volume music and and young people's screaming till late midnight time. It s very very bad cause you can't sleep. I couldn't understand how they gave permission to build up a hotel in such a bad place.

Given how expensive Zurich is, this hotel represents a good value. For US$100 I was given a large, basic, clean room. Breakfast was not included at this price. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful with information. I was permitted to check in several hours earlier than expected, with no hassle or extra charge. It is not centrally located, but is not far away from the center of the old city and there are plenty of buses and trams if one does not want to walk. I would suggest asking for a quiet room (with no view) because it's in a kind of backpacker area so definitely gets loud at night. I heard no noise from my back alley facing room, however, so I was fine. Wifi signal is strong. I'd stay here again.

ZUrich is sooo expensive, so I knew that by booking one of the cheapest hotels on the web, I shouldn't expect much. But, it's still 3 times more than I usually pay in the states. This hotel was hard to find using Google maps, so don't do that. When we checked in the hotel we were told about the surrounding "questionable" area. Our room was very clean and sparse but the beds were situated where the corner of a light was over one bed and the corner of the casement window was halfway over another bed. So, if you were careful, you were ok. We had to have the windows open because it was hot and no a/c but the noise level from the street was over the top with people and vehicles well into the wee hours around 4am. Be careful going out at night. The hotel is clean, the front desk is nice, but the surrounding area is pretty seedy.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room to avoid the street noise. They only had "one" room on the secon...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Location worked well for us as it is only 1.2kms from the main streets with great food options. Across the street from a convience store (preferred the Co - op however) and near the train station. Some posts say the area is unsafe, we didn't find this and the noise level was acceptable considering it is on a busy street.

The room is basic and clean. The only issues we had were lack of pillows and limited German only TV stations. So otherwise no problems.

On offer is a $15 franc contential breakfast, I think that is too pricy even by Zurich standards so we bought cereal and fruit from the Co - op for $12 francs which lasted us the 3 days.

We stayed here because we had an 18 hour layover so we just basically checked in, changed, had a night on the town and then came back to sleep for 6 hours and showered. The room was very simple with not much decoration, but the beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated, but good enough for the short stay we had. We did not have any problem with street noise and we had the window open all night. If you are looking for a comfortable convenient place to rest your head this is the place, but if you are looking for a luxury hotel with fancy trimmings this is not the place for you.The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful.

The room is bald and dingy. Part of the windows are to the street, which is full of pubs and bars. The night was really loud. The services in the hotel wasn't good. They don't accept Euro's coins. My shower wasn't clean properly...
I don't recommend this hotel, sorry.
