“Modern hotel in good location in central Zurich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

The hotel is in a great location near the Central tramstop, a couple of minutes walk from the central railway station, the Old Town and the main shops. The lake is a couple of tram stops away.
The hotel has a trendy, modern decor and both communal areas and bedrooms are well maintained.
I had a small single room which was not too small, and very well appointed and comfortable.
Breakfast was a huge and varied spread with everything from smoked slamon to cornflakes. Certainly set me up for the day.
I stayed on Friday and Saturday nights and there was quite a bit of noise from the local revellers, so earplugs might be a good idea, but this hotel is right in the centre of the city. I'd certainly go back.

Its a 3 star hotel near the river and within a few hundred metres of the station and the main shopping district. My wife and I have stayed there 3 or 4 times before, normally passing through on holiday. The hotel is good value and great quality, includes a pretty good breakfast. Rooms vary a bit in size but are all more than adequate. But shop around for best rates, as their direct booking rate is normally significantly more expensive. Try venere.com or any of the other booking services.

Zurich is expensive - get used to this. E.g. restaurants are significantly more expensive than comparable restaurants in most of rest of Europe.

My favourites - the fresh chocolate shops. Sprungli is good but my all time favourite is Laderach in Bahnhofstrasse - a couple of blocks from station. Forget the nicely packaged stuff and the dainty little chocolates. Go straight for the slabs of fresh chocolate. This is the BEST EVER, without preservatives. Dont worry about the price, just buy some, its worth it. Then buy some more the next day and again before you leave Zurich.

Room Tip: The rooms vary a bit. So look at the room to make sure its acceptable in terms of size, type of bat...

Stayed here for 3 nights last weekend.
It is a good hotel.
location is perfect , at the heart of the city and a five minute walk to main train station.
I had a single room , not the biggest one in the hotel, but a good new room.
Breakfast was good too, and the waitress was very nice.
Two things I think can be improved :
First is service at front desk, most off staff were helpful but checking in was "cold", not talking to me or helping with info. The days after, front desk was better.
Second is the housekeeping. First two days didn’t change the cups in the room, it is not a big thing but should have been done.

It is a good hotel and I recommend it to all.

I probably spent more time laboring over Trip Advisor Zurich hotel reviews trying to decide where to stay, than the time I actually spent at this hotel ...which was 24 hours. However my labors were not in vain. This hotel was perfect and met every expectaion. We arrived at 8 am on a rainy January Saturday (I had emailed in advance of the early arrival) Luckily they had a room available that we could go to immediately ...room 315, a large corner room with lots of windows and the grafitti art ...which was amusing. The hotel agreed thaqtwe could enjoy the included breakfast on our arrival day since we were departing pretty early the next. Breakfast was fine with some hard boiled warm eggs available as well as the usual items. There was also Salmon from Norway and Prosecco to enjoy!!!! The location on the edge of the old town, and a five minute walk from the Bahnhof was excellent. After a few hours of touring we were chilled and needed a break, as we did again later in the afternoon. WE could easily come back and rest.

Our bathroom had a really long tub and lots of vanity storage space - which I like. The towels were very rough though (my only negative) . The hotel has one free computer in the lobby and you can buy 30 minutes internet time for your phone or laptop for about 4 francs ...as well as 24 hour unlimited rates. I totally recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: high floor or try to get away from late night street noise
