- friendly stuff (upgrade to appartement due to bookings) - stylish furnished boutique hotel - great food (gault millau 2015) and bar - good and central location to explore the city and near trainstations

A small hotel not far from Bahnhofstrasse, this is effectively a bar and restaurant with rooms upstairs (a corner of the bar acts as the reception desk). Room design is unusual - colorful sparseness is the best I can say - but I really like it. Two small warnings: ask about the room as some are quite small and, for...

My room was very nice with modern furniture, a comfortable bed and a big bath. Wifi worked well. Tasty and homemade breakfast. Kind staff The hotel is a little bit far from the center of the city (old town) anyway Zurich is fast and easy to visit by walking.

Enter this hotel and you feel like you have been transported back to time that is forgotten. The atmosphere of the hotel is warm, and welcoming. It's clearly an old building, maybe even historic. They have done a fantastic job of preserving the character of the old world, but updating in just the right ways to let you know you...

Hotel was recommended to me by a friend living in the area. The design and decor was fantastic and suited my tastes well. It felt very English, but somehow Swiss as well. The Kiehls' products in the bath were a nice surprise and the food (had dinner and breakfast in the hotel) was very good. I was traveling on business...

Arrived late; staff were helpful and friendly but hotel is not staffed 24 hours which seemed odd. Room was small but clean. The location is ok, lots of construction around on this night, also note that it is not in the old town, it's a bit of a walk. Had breakfast, it was not included in price of room and...

Great boutique hotel located in the centre of Zurich on a quaint riverside location. We had a Medium room which was borderline small, so I wouldn't suggest getting a Small room. The hotel and rooms have very interesting art throughout and is well designed. There is no AC, so beware in summer.

My main requirement for a hotel is getting a good night's sleep...unfortunately this did not happen in this hotel! The room did not have aircon which wasn't suitable for the July heat. A fan was provided in the room but it was very noisy and seemed to just be pushing around the hot air. My boyfriend and I ended up...

Great location in city central. It's a short walk to old town with many delicious diversions in on the way, whether it is for an aperitivo, some chocolate or a fine swiss watch. The hotel drips with charm and you can feel it's historical relevance just by its ambiance. The decor and amenities were a modern yet all tasteful upgrades....
