This hotel is great! Good location, perfect service, clean and well-equipped rooms. The Bauhaus building is also very nice. It's not cheap, but it is worth the money.

Terrible!!!!!!!!,

This hotel deserves the lowest rating. It was loud with no AC, a poor staff. I did not sleep all night and would never stay at that hotel again.

Definitely not a 4*

The hotel is old with a slight facelift. Taking the stairs is quicker than the 50 year old elevator. We stayed during July, so it was hot and there is NO air conditioning. The tiny fan provided did nothing to alleviate the heat and leaving the windows open let all the street noise in...and there was a lot. The tram stops at all hours right outside the hotel which is convenient but noisy. Due to the heat and noise, we got no sleep for the 3 nights we stayed. When asked, the hotel said there was no airport shuttle. The Internet is 24CHF (~$23) per day. Nothing in the minibar, not even water. Overall, not a pleasant experience and definitely overpriced.

good for 1-2 days in zurich

Nice hotel, but doesn't deserve the "boutique" title! The staff is amazing, really friendly and helpful. Nice rooms (each one is unique), but really cramped shower stalls. Close to a tram stop, and zurich is such a small city that location hardly matters. Good for a quick and comfy stay at a no frills price.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get familiar with tram # 10. It'll take you from the airport to the hotel (winkel something strasse stop) and onwards to zurich hbf main train station, which is a perfect launching pad for forays into the old town where most of the landmarks are.

Centrally located, Noisy as %%&*

The location is ideal for a Zurich trip, its clean, staff is good but the road noise is super super loud, the temperature was such that we had to keep windows open as there isn't any air-conditioning (in a 4*, who would have thought!!) you can hear every lorry, tram, bus, car, bicycle, ambulance. No sleep guaranteed. We complained and they gave us a silent side room, was also good, not much noise can be heard, but they did charge us 50 bucks a night extra over the agreed rate.
