reception opens at 08:30 and closes about 17:30. no Lift and fairly steep stairs to carry your luggage up. but not too bad a price for Zurich. trams to city centre come often so it takes 5mins to city centre. clean rooms. I will stay there next time I visit Zurich

Stayed here for one night on my business trip. I arrived after 5pm so there was no one at reception and I was supposed to do self check in on a machine outside the building but it wouldn't accept my booking reference, I rang the emergency number but there was no answer, it took like 10mins to get a ring...

Nice and clean small hotel, good fair price, but don't expect anything more. Rooms are ok and clean, but there is no parking, the hotel is far from the centre, and, when i was there the heating in my room was switched-off, I freezed all night... The price is good, so, if oyu need just anything to sleep, then ok....

Stayed for one night and can say "it does the job". Rooms were clean and spacious, beds were comfortable. Perfect for a business traveler to just get into the room and relax after a day of traveling/meetings. From all of the hotel options in Zurich, this was the most affordable one and I encourage travelers on the budget to consider...

We arrived in the middle of the night together with another guest. His and our electronic code didn't work!!! We had to look for an hotel in the middle of the night. Somebody was sluppy in his work, for us a nightmare. These are unforgivable mistakes, NEVER AGAIN !

We stayed in California House by mistake. We thought that we made the reservation for Hotel California and we realized our mistake at the airport and were disappointed with our mistake as we wanted to be closer to the city. However, the hotel is only about 30 min. on foot from downtown Zürich and there are 3 tram lines (3,...

This place is good for people who need to stay in Zurich longer than normal holidays. It is so close to the tram station which normally takes you about 15 minutes to the city centre and the main train station. The little kitchen is probably something nice to have for an expensive place like Zurich. One gentle reminder, there are...

It's not that far from the center, the tram stop is only 3 minutes walk away. The studio we stayed in was big enough, and had a great view. The floor was very squeacky, but it's an old building so we could understand that. The only thing I missed was the air conditioning because the room with open windows is...

If you are looking for your own Studio with kitchen, parking and central location in Zurich, California House is your place. I have been staying at the California House during all my trips to Zurich during the last 12 months.
