“weekend in Zurich”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

The hotel in in the city center, not far from main train station on foot. Rooms are simple, clean and with free italian coffee (nespresso). The position of the hotel is in a nice area but very noisy at night. the hotel staff is friendly.

We stayed here for one night on the hottest day of the year. It's a great location just 5 minutes' walk from the train station, and very close to the nightife along the Limmat river. The room (King size) was very nice, very clean with good quality furniture, comfortable beds, nice lighting and a corner sofa and table, there was a lot of space in the room, which can be unusual in this part of town. Our room was lovely and quiet as requested. The staff were friendly and efficient. One disappointment was the plastic cover over the mattresses to protect them (quickly removed given the boiling temperatures) -- I will not sleep on a plastic mattress cover under any circumstances, especially not a 3 star hotel), and the air conditioning although present did not really work, it was more like a noisy fan blowing air around the room. The Nespresso machine was very much appreciated. Breakfast was fairly basic (no fresh juice), and the bread was not fresh, it was yesterday's croissants and "Zopf/Tresse" bread -- this was disppointing for a Sunday morning when fresh Zopf is usually served all over Switzerland. If there had not been the plastic cover and bread issue, I would have given this hotel a 4*, it was good value for money, and we will be back.

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. The room was very clean with white walls and sleek furnishings. The walls are decorated with graffiti murals which made a difference from bland hotel prints. The location is excellent and even though there was a small bar just down the street the double glazing made it very quiet in the room.
The breakfast was a continental style but had plenty to choose from. We would stay here again.

This hotel is in the old city, close to the main train station and convenient to most of the major sights in Zurich. Just off the river. The rooms are quiet and the breakfast was very good. Reasonably priced. We didn't have a problem with the AC.

I tried several rooms, the air condining simply doesn't work. I had to just keep the window open, and it can be very hot and humid in Zurich in the summer. The hotel staff were friendly, but they didn't really seemed concerned about not having air conditining. I had a small single room, which was really very small. Probably a better value to pay for the larger room. Everything else worked find in the room, and I note that they had the outstanding Nespresso coffee machines in the rooms, with two free capsuls per day. If you love coffee, you will enjoy that amenity. Bathroom amenities were not good, no bar of soap, only a soap/shampoo dispenser in the shower, which wasn't very good at all, so bring your own soap and shampoo. The breakfast was pretty good, included with most room rates, but no scrambled eggs, only soft boiled. Free wifi in the lobby, or one free computer teminal to use in the lobby, but doesn't have u.s. keyboard. I guess the hotel figures they aren't expecting guests from the U.S. Wifi available in the room, but very expensive. The hotel and room were very very clean. The location is quite close to the main train station. If exiting the train station, walk out the very front entrance, go out the right side by the Burger King, walk out toward the street, go across the bridge over the river staying on the right side of the bridge as you are walking away from the train station, then go past the river, past the pedestrian street, and turn right on the next street, which has some cars on it, and the hotel is on the right. About six minutes walk from the train station. Lots of trams nearby going to all parts of Zurich. The hotel is in a nightlife area, with lots of bars and caberets nearby. About one long block down, is the intersection where lots of prostitutes hang out at night. It seems like a totally safe area with lots of people around. There is a McDonald's about a block away, and a Migros supermarket nearby, as well as everything in the train station close by.

Room Tip: Don't come in hot weather, as the air conditining doesn't seem to work in any room I was sho...
