I already went there the second time. The very first tine was with my family for my birthday. The second time I went with my man - and it was definitely worth it! A nice little wine cellar turned into a small restaurant, serving only cold meals. AND the best Beef Tatar I've ever had!

The menu is small and focused on cheese plates, sausage plates and a great beef tatar, but the wine list is extensive and the bread is warm and... More

I've stayed here three times now and would stay again. Perfect location 10 mins walk from the main station, in the heart of the old town. Comfortable beds, clean rooms and a warm welcome.. what more do you need? Go to Lucy's bar just round the corner for adrink with locals!

This hotel is located right on a busy square in the heart of old town, so it's easy to get anywhere. Tram stop just 2 blocks away. During the weekend nights it gets rowdy outside, so ask for a rear room if that's an issue. The rooms are typically small for Europe, but the staff is helpful and friendly. Breakfast... More

Hotel well situated in old Zurich centre at a walking distance from the main train station and the Lakeside. Comfortable and clean. Rooms are rather small but well furnished and comfortable bed. Breakfast with fresh bread and limited to some ham and cheese. Number of restaurants and fast food at proximity.
