Great hotel! The staff is very friendly, professional, and helpful. Breakfast was good. Location is very close to several tram stops and about a 15-20 minute walk to the central train station. The room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a good situation close to the tram stop and a short walk from the lake and old town. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast good. Staff were friendly and efficient. Buy a Zurich Card to give free travel too and from the airport plus free tram and bus travel in the city.

This is nice hotel that offers quality service for reasonable price. Stayed here for 2 nights while on business trip. Walking distance from UZH, city center, lake Zurich. Would recommend it and stay again here if back in Zurich.

The hotel is the transformation of an old Zurich house with its charm and nooks. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent location, in a quiet neighborhood and close to the University and ETH Zurich. A very nice cafe adds to the charm of the hotel.

I picked this hotel based on the fellow traveler reviews. My experience was ok but not stellar. To start positive, check-in was streamlined and breakfast service was excellent. The room was fairly large in European terms. The location is excellent. On the negative side, Wi-Fi in the room wasn't fast (but was quite fast in the breakfast room). I cranked...

Hotel was easy to get to from the airport, just a 20min tram then a 10min walk, and only a 15min walk from the city centre. We were able to check in early, and the front desk attendant was so friendly and helpful, and gave us lots of ideas as to what to see and do. The staff all spoke...
