  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Near hbf and it was clean and good value

    Noise and maybe price too high

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Efficient reception staff.

    Room was small although not out of line with hotel rooms in larger European cities

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Very Centrally situated to visit holiday sites and close to shopping areas.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Busy intersection, therefore try to get a room not directly in front of the tram station.

  • Single
    9.2

    Maybe important: wifi was perfect. Compared with other hotels in Zürich the room, being a single room was no small at all.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Very convenient location - near Bahnhof and shopping, excellent local transport

    No valet to assist with luggage; no concieriege; keys did not work requiring mutliple trips to desk prior to finally getting into room; small room. Nothing beyond average or lower, but priced like a proper hotel with full service.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Everything--great location, very good price for Zurich, very nice staff, lovely quiet comfortable room (facing the street behind the hotel rather than the water), nice bathroom. Loved the rubber duck too.

    It would have been nice to have some tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Also a little more attention to detail--they provided a complimentary bottle of sparking water but we had to request a bottle opener. There were towels for only one person, so we had to request another set. And the in-room safe had been left unusable because the previous occupant's code had not been cleared, though we didn't bother to have it rectified. The bar was very nice, though the prices were eye-watering, but we found that throughout Zurich.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Friendly staff, free extra bed

    Double paying - 250f before and 236f after

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The location is amazing just 2min walk to Banhofstrasse and just across the road you could find many restaurant, Pubs , Bars .

    Very small room for a 4 star. For a superior double your not getting anything superior.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Central location, right next to the train station and the shopping streets

    Too small rooms, rooms too noisy before of the tram station facing the building; no buffet breakfast available.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    It is ideally located near Zurich Old Town, walking distance from Main Rail Station with service to airport every 10 minutes and walking distance from main business district.

    Satellite channels and internet wifi service are on a pay basis - for a hotel of this standard, these services should be gratis. I paid extra for a room with a view - this was a mistake. The improved view was negligible.

  • Couple
    10.0

    This is everything a city hotel should be + has super comfy beds! Perfectly located at a good price. I have stayed here on business, for leisure & with my young daughter....each time has been wonderful. Highly recommend it!!

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Perfect location, only minutes away from main station and shopping streets.

    1. The room was small, but convenient. 2. I had trouble printing some important documents from my storage drive. Flash drive was not allowed and the language setting for the PC was in German! Had to wait some time to get someone to help.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Hot room, there was no airconditioniong or it had been turned off. Very noisy environment with a lot of traffic. Cannot recommend this hotel, if you like to have a good nights sleep!

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    Great piano bar.

    Rooms are uncomfortable, and seldom refreshed whille staying there.
