Cute boutique hotel located in a central location. 5 min walk from Zurich HB station, and just across the street is a closer tram station with 4-5 lines. Walking distance to all the restaurants, bars, sites, and the lake. Small room but has everything you need. Clean and nicely decorated. Staff are very friendly and nice. Madeleine was the most...

Yes the rooms are small (standard for a European hotel) and it can get loud on a weekend if you have a street view (you are in the center of town and closing the window helps), but if your main concerns are location and price you won't be disappointed. 3 minute walk from the train station that will get you...

Whilst all charges had been prepaid they insisted on an $80 guarantee against other charges. Very rude. Room was small and no room for more than one bag. Shower was over the bath and very awkward. The hotel is well situated for sightseeing. Be aware that whilst it is within walking distance of the train station it would be a... More

Despite some problems with our room, that the staff handled well and compensated us in a nice way, the stay was pleasent. Did not suffer from noice from the road, we had rooms facing the smaller alley. Dont miss the Holy Cow burger joint nearby for a great burger.

Excellent location for a tourist--in the middle of Old Town and across the Limmet from the rail station. Walking distance to almost all of the tourist attractions, lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. Room was small, as typical for European hotels, but comfortable. Staff was very professional and helpful. Note that there are a few steps up to the entrance.

We chose this hotel for its walking convenience to the train station, and in this regard we were totally satisfied. As for room comfort, it was mediocre. A little crowded, and for those who like an open window at night, it was noisy (we were on the busy street side). We struggled with finding a room temperature we liked, and... More

This is a very convenient and nice hotel. However, the room was very dimly lit, especially at the bed. The base of the bed had sharp corners which jutted out and were made of a dark wood. It was almost impossible to see the corners of the base when walking around the far side of the bed. Because of this... More

Very convenient for Old Town, the Rail Station, and Zurich's best shopping on Bahnhofstrasse. Very clean rooms and courteous professional staff. The breakfast is excellent and would appeal to most every appetite.

Despite being described as 'soundproof' , traffic noise starts from 04.30, sirens, engine deceleration (hotel situated at side of sloping busy road). There is a 'quiet side' and a room there would probably be preferable -Superior Double Room (as described) is more of a small room
