Great little hotel in a fantastic location! Very easy to walk everywhere! Only a few blocks to the lake and the main attractions in town. Most Americans will be surprised at the price (about $350 per night) but it's what you get in the most expensive city in the world. We found this on Trip Advisor so we knew what...

It is an expensive Hotel (CHF 560 Euro for 2 nights ) recommended by United Airline. It was terrible surprise for me, to find out that there is no air-conditioning . You even can not open the windows because it is noisy from outside (facing the street) and high lighting intensity coming from the street. It was so hot and...

Spent 2 nights here while on a pit-stop from the south of France up to Munich. Didn't put too much thought into visiting Zurich other than it was in the middle of our train commute up to Munich. But I'm SO glad we did. This hotel is quaint and small, but has everything you need. Staff is friendly and helpful...

We had a horrible experience at this hotel. A guest was running amok and the hotel management did nothing about it. There was no receptionist on duty after midnight, no one to call either. No emergency phone number in my room and no one from management around to help to protect the guests from the aggressive hotel guest who tried...

Spent only one night here on business. The location is nice and central. The hotel is simple but neat and clean - did not need anything more than that for a few hours of sleep. Will be back just because of the price, location and quality of the hotel. It's not easy finding a decent hotel for a good price...

The location of the hotel is great and it's very close to the lake and the Bahnhofstrasse. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. We really liked the small cosy bar next to the entrance. The service is very friendly and it is great to read various newspaper with some Jazz music in the background with a good coffee or...

Small hotel across the river from the financial district. Rooms not big but comfortable and had everything they needed. Friendly staff and lots of atmosphere in the bar. Location away from all the grey suits and stuffed shirts that most hotels in Zurich seem to be full of. Good value as well. Top marks - will definitely use it next...
