As a frequent visitor to Zurich I want a great room, good location and a relaxed atmosphere for a reasonable price. Seems simple but it's really not. Townhouse has these qualities and more.
First booking. Try contacting the hotel directly for a good rate. Give them a chance to beat the booking sites as they did in our case. They will usually give you an upgrade too. Our room was on the reception floor and was quiet and private. Room 52 has a washstand in the room and a shower and toilet in the bath which turns into an efficient use of space. The bed was comfy.
Reception is open from 7:00 am to 11:00pm with slightly shorter hours on the weekends. The reception area is actually a nicely outfitted living room with a couch and a couple of chairs, newspapers and around the corner a free internet computer and a sink and fridge area. They put out an assortment of breads and food along with drinks and wine. Just write down what you use and it will be added to your bill.
Using the hot water kettle we made coffee in the morning using VIA from Starbucks that we brought with us. Stocker Zurich, a famous Zurich bakery has a shop in the Zurich HB which was much better than what they had available. We brought it back to the living room and talked with other guests as we ate.
We really enjoyed our two stays and look forward to staying here on our next trip. The wall coverings appear garish in the site's pictures but are just accent walls and not too much. You can access the reception after it closes by using your room key to open the door. You can set up wireless access in your room for CHF 10 if you need to work. It's a well thought out system just like you would expect from the Swiss.
