The best hotel

Great location, just a five minute walk to the main train station. If you wanted to wait for the bus or streetcar it was even closer, but we never did, we just walked over. Wonderful room, very quiet and very clean. Large bathroom and roomy closets. We watched stargate in German at night on the flat screen TV. I really liked the 'quaint' barrel of cider and apples that stood next to the reception desk. I pocketed apples and had a mug of cider every time I left / returned to the hotel.

Nice hotel

Friendly, helpful staff. Room was upgraded to suite by hotel. Good facilities, including Internet access. Nice breakfast - include breakfast with your room if you can. Excellent location for me - quiet area but close, easy walking distance to center and train station.

Convenient location for nice hotel

Within walking distance to lake front, river, train station and old town historical area so very convenient. Even though it was in downtown, with this location it was still convenient for an overnight stay in Zurich. The train station was just a block away with trains going to the airport every 5 minutes. No need to take an expensive cab either to the hotel or back to the airport. Hotel was well priced too. The evening restaurant food was good but a little expensive.

A Very Good Hotel

Once that you acknowledge that Zurich is very expensive, especially if you are from the US, a stay in this hotel is a good experience. Everything in the room was perfectly clean and maintained, with amenities such as slippers and robes. The bed was good. The location is convenient to Bahnhofstrasse and the old town-- a 10 minute walk. We skipped the 32 franc hotel breakfast (although I'm sure it would have been good) for fruit and cheese that we brought with us. We had a small snag-- the computer system was down when we arrived at 5:30 PM, and we could not get into our room before dinner. However, the hotel bought us glasses of champagne, and let us check out late the next day.

The Zeughauskeller restaurant is worth a visit for traditional Swiss food, all well-prepared. It's easy to make a reservation (essential!) on their website.

Zurich trip

This hotel is within blocks of Old Town. Our room was neat and clean. The bathroom was small so only one person could use it. The staff was very helpful, especially Andreas (Andy), who was very friendly.

I would not recommend the Chinese restaurant right off the lobby. The one inside the hotel, on the first floor, has very good food.
