My wife and I stayed at the hotel for three nights from the 3rd to the 6th June. Nice quiet location, the room (well ours was big) and had a comfortable bed. The staff were really helpful and the breakfast was nice. Close to the city centre, just take the tram (number 6) which takes you to the station, then you can explore the city (like we did) I would recommend getting the Swiss-pass it will save you a fortune.

Lovely staff but bed was uncomfortable and the noise from the street made sleep impossible until about 2am. There is no airconditioning so windows had to be kept open as it was a warm evening. There is very little space around the bed. Cute little cafe.

Beautiful place with an amazing Cafe. The stay was really nice and the service even better. The hostess Ms. Beatrix even surprised my sister with a birthday cake during our trip! All in all an awesome place to stay.

Great location, great facilities, terrible bed, futon type mattress practically on the floor, such a small room that I tripped over the bed twice already trying to get to the table. Maybe they should have spent less on providing a tablet in each room ( not even sure what it is for as I have not switched it on) and concentrated on getting the basics right, a comfortable mattress and a proper bed.

This hotel is small and very friendly. Most of the bedrooms have been renovated recently. The hotel is very clean, and has a great location. There is a very nice buffet for breakfast. They offer free yoga mat, dvd players, dvd, tablet ...

Great hotel! The staff is very friendly, professional, and helpful. Breakfast was good. Location is very close to several tram stops and about a 15-20 minute walk to the central train station. The room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a good situation close to the tram stop and a short walk from the lake and old town. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast good. Staff were friendly and efficient. Buy a Zurich Card to give free travel too and from the airport plus free tram and bus travel in the city.

This is nice hotel that offers quality service for reasonable price. Stayed here for 2 nights while on business trip. Walking distance from UZH, city center, lake Zurich. Would recommend it and stay again here if back in Zurich.

The hotel is the transformation of an old Zurich house with its charm and nooks. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent location, in a quiet neighborhood and close to the University and ETH Zurich. A very nice cafe adds to the charm of the hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be clean, friendly and in a good location for our requirements. We experienced no problems at all, from check in to check out. This is just what we needed after traveling quite a distance.
