Looking for a good hotel in Zürich? Look no further! Ten minutes walk from the main station, up a hill close to the old town centre, the Hotel St. Josef is bright and cheerful with friendly staff. It is smartly done up in a oldish town house, with modern fittings in the spacious rooms, large comfy bed and squeeky clean....

The hotel is well positioned on the edge of the old town and an easy walk to the main station, making for a great base to see Zurich as well as for day trips to nearby towns and sites. Our room was simple but spacious, and as we were here for about 5 days, the space and amenities were appreciated....

The hotel is very comfortable and modern. Most parts now appear to be new or at least very recent. The room had a comfortable bed and a nice shower and a very usable desk for work. Breakfast was well above average for European fare. The staff was extremely helpful and was aware when I arrived that I had stayed there...

The Hotel St. Josef in Zurich is a real find! Located a 5 - to 10 -minute walk from virtually everything in Center City, including the university and the main train station as well as shopping and restaurants, it is clean, quiet, friendly and super-efficient in the classic Swiss manner.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and would recommend staying here when in Zurich. The room is clean, small and quiet and the bed was large and comfortable.
