I loved this hotel, very nice option for anyone wanting good position, lovely service and convenience, you can even do your own washing if you would rather, after living out of a suit awe for nearly a month this was a highlight, thank you very much.

This hotel is quite new, absolutely clean, central, breakfast and WIFI included in the standard rate, staff is kind and it is also easy to reach both by car and by public transport. But ....there is a but ...
My room was ground floor andI'd rather keep the window closed at night, then take a warm April night and a heavy winter blanket, well I slept dressed and without the blanket ...generally speaking I would be careful in summer, no AC together with a ground floor room are not the best mix ....

Room Tip: Not ground floor!!

I have just come back from a one night stay at this hotel and it was very good. I reviewed the poor comments which related mainly to the lack of air conditioning which we didn't need as it was March. loved the hotel, the interior, the location, the service and the rooms. Had a quiet room at the back which was easily convertable between twin and double. The hotel design is very uptodate and it was very clean. The breakfast was huge and delicious....I could not have wanted for more and the lady at reception even helped to decorate the table as one of my friends was celebrating her birthday. Overall a good experience and the only thing that stood out negatively was the price but we are talking Zuerich so I guess we still got a good deal.

Room Tip: I would say in the main house at the back but can only judge by my own experience

Wanted a Hotel within walking distance of Train Station. This was it---about 15 minutes, although a bit uphill at the end. Room was very clean, decent sized, staff very helpful and most important---free Wifi in the room. We slept with windows open to cool it down a bit, and it was only April---doesn't appear to have AC, as they had floor fan in the room. That would be my ONLY concern on a hot night. Great small Hotel.

I can't recommend this little hotel enough! It is an easy walk of less than 10 minutes from the main train station. The two buildings that comprise the hotel are impeccably neat and well-kept and the staff that I encountered were all very polite and attentive. The room that I had (#832) was small yet very charming & clean.

They also have a nice continental breakfast in the mornings seven days a week. Unfortunately, the restaurant is only open for dinner on weeknights; so I didn't get a chance to try it.

There were only two negatives:
1. The towels weren't very soft - somewhat akin to sandpaper.
2. There was only one pillow on the bed - two would have been nice.

Other than these two minor negatives, you can't go wrong with this hotel!

All-in-all, the Hotel St. Josef is an excellent deal for a city so expensive as Zürich. If you are looking for something big, glitzy & ostentatious, then this place might not be for you. Otherwise... STAY AT THIS HOTEL! You will be very pleased.
