An old but renovated 3 star hotel. Rooms and bathroom facilities are adequate. Hanging space is somewhat limited with no wardrobe as such available in my single room. Over-riding any minor inconveniences is the hotel's superb location. Most tourist attractions on both sides of the river are within walking distance. I was particularly impressed by the very helpful multi-lingual reception...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night before heading back to the US. It was a great little place.

Nice hotel if you need to be in the centre of Zurich: close to the Central Station and in the middle of the old town. Lots of restaurants, pubs, etc on walking distance. Good quality...not cheap, but Switzerland is rather expensive for tourists. Good breakfast.

Hotel was in a fantastic location. Several blocks of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The room was quiet and comfortable. The main shopping street is located just across the river and up a few blocks, right by the train station. A reasonable price for the location. Would stay again!
