Outstanding Location and Value

This hotel is an outstanding value for Zurich. Great location only 5-10 minute walk to the main train station and a two minute walk to the nearby tram station. Friendly, helpful, and courteous staff with quiet, clean rooms. The taxi to the airport took only 15-20 minutes from the Continental. It is not cheap, but hardly anything is in Zurich if it has a good, convenient location with quality.

Excellent soft landing in Zurich

Excellent service, courteous and considerate. Very comfortable room. A twin single, so it was quite compact but well laid out and had what I needed. Quiet at night and great proximity to whatever you want. Beautiful (expensive) restaurant down the street called Didi's. I was undecided about whether to stay a second night, and they spontaneously extended my checkout time (I didn't even ask) and gave me more time to make my plans.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get the 24-hour travel card when you are leaving the Zurich airport. Covers fare into the city and fares all around the city, including city ferry boats. Otherwise you will constantly be fishing for change and buying and punching fare cards, which is no fun at all.

Comfortable and elegant hotel near train

The hotel is located conveniently within a 5 minute walk from Zurich's main Hauptbahnhoff, with dining, shopping, and nightlife all within close proximity. I arrived via Zurich airport and was surprised to find that it's only a 10 minute train ride to Zurich HB. The room was not enormous, but it have everything I needed with a larger bathroom and shower. The staff was very friendly too
