      We were delighted to be able to walk 10 minutes from the train station, dragging bags, into the lively Altstadt, and be immediately enjoy being in the 'center of things' , on our first trip to Zürich. We want to come back to this lovely city, and would want to stay here again.

      There was nothing about the hotel we foind unlikable

      Excellent hotel for a short business or tourist stay.

    • Family with children

      The location is central and is walking distance to where we wanted to go.

      It served the purpose for the one night. Make sure you have an inside room because it is one a Busy Street with many bars and restaurants and it was noisy.

    • Couple

      The hotel is located on the same streets as many late night bars. We were woken up many times due to late night party people on the streets. Breakfast not included.

    • Group of friends

      good location, clean rooms, very comfy beds

      Found it a bit pricey, but I think switzerland as a whole is expensive.

    • Family with children

      very clean

      very noisy, a lot people shout and talk very very loud that you can not possibely sleep at nite. if you stay on Sun nite, then you will be fine since all the club and bar close on sun nite, the rest of the week, it's very very noisy.

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      Actually, although we booked a room in the guesthouse, we were offered a room in the hotel (which is just opposite) with the same price + including breakfast. Central location, fair price, polite staff, clean room are the main advantages.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      ฺBooked a double room for 2 nights at the guesthouse, but a room with the same rate at the hotel was provided instead due to no vacancies at the guesthouse. Don't know if that was a better deal or not but was quite relieved after seeing the location of the guesthouse which was in the middle of Zurich Old Town back street. Hotel room was comfortable and perfectly located for city breaks.

    • Single
      6.6

      The cleanliness of the room, the parking very secure, the staff is well prepared and gentle.

      the area where is located in the evening becomes like "red light district"

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      a bar in the opposite side of the hotel

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      The room is spacious and clean. Good location. Only a short walk from Zurich Main Station.

    • Single
      6.2

      Nice bathroom. Good location.

      The internet site did not tell me the keys had to be picked up from a different address (at the Alexander Hotel), so that led to some frustration. Then the staff wanted to charge me CHF125 instead of the CHF110 agreed on the internet. Also, there was a pair of used socks lying on the floor of my bedroom - no doubt from the last guest.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Good situation in the town, good staff.Clean and vell organisied. I would go back.

      Its simple, but it's normal. with this price.

      Convenient for station, very clean band comfortable
