We stayed at Citystudios for 2 nights. We were almost exhausted after taking the big luggage to our room on the 4th floor as there's no lift in the building. Besides, there's also no air conditioner in the room and it's quite hot even we opened the windows. As there're pubs and restaurants next to the hotel, we could hear...

The location is excellent. Facilities is okay. There is no lift, so travel light if possible. All in all, a good place to stay. I could not find a similar facility at a similar price and location in Zurich.

Solid location and a decent price given how expensive Switzerland is, but the room itself was pretty basic without much personality and not particularly clean, but it did the trick for a quick one night stop while passing through.

For the price, the location of this establishment CANNOT be beat. Just a short stroll across the river from the Zurich Hauptbahnhous. The tram system's "Central" station of the Zurich Tram with most lines passing thru or connecting to all points in the city is just 100m away as is the funicular up to the university district.

Unfriendly staff, small room, expensive price. late check in, early check-out... they are very smart business people, if client wasnt the king. We arrived really tired and they made us wait extra 2 hours, until we could check-in. Location was good, although, close to main attractions of Zurich. I wouldnt recommend it to anyone.
