3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

What a welcoming and clean place to stay for a quick overnight stay. My family enjoyed a short weekend trip to Zurich and this was a great location. The tram was just across the street and ran quite often. They had cheap parking and the cost to have our pet with us was also cheap. We received complimentary bottles of water, a good free breakfast, and super helpful front desk. The room was a little cramped for a family of 4 but very doable for a night. Definitely recommend.

A nice and cosy hotel not far from the old city. The rooms are clean and well designed. The breakfast is great (although nothing starts before 0730am during the weekend) and the service pretty efficient and polite.

My husband stayed 3 nights with our 2 small dogs. Everything was excellent about this hotel from the moment we arrived. Rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast was one of the best we've had at while staying in various hotels around Europe. Perfect if driving your own car. The value for parking and staying with dogs was perfect. Location is great for easily getting in/out of the city while also being about a 10 minute walk from the main old town area. Would love to stay here again!

The breakfast was great! Lots of options and tasty. The staff were friendly and parking was right outside the hotel. We had to pay 5CHF for this and book in advance but it was worth it. Although there was a fan in our room, it was ineffective and we were too hot for the duration of our stay. We knew that the hotel didn't have air con however for the price, I really think the hotel would benefit from investing in this to make guests stays more comfortable during the summer months.

Hotel is 10-15mn walk away from the main train station (HB) in the nice area running along the Limmat valley. We had a great welcome from the Lady manager, in perfect French. Room had all you could expect for the price, including view and quietness. Breakfast, obviously homemade, had probably the best selection of our whole trip. If we ever come back to Zürich, it will be in this hotel.

The hotel was located in superb location, in quite area and just 10 minutes away from the main interest point by tram and one minute in walk by the tram station, in the station you can take line 7 or 15 and you can go to the city center. The airport is also near the hotel, approx 30 min (take line 7 with train connection) The staff was very welcoming and friendly, initially wait us with a fresh tee, cold towel and accommodate us in 10 am o'clock which was a rare thing and made our day. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was also good.

I have used this hotel a number of times, each time I have alway felt welcome by the staff. There is a great breakfast and is only a short walk downhill to the river and the main train station. The rooms have always been clean.

Stayed here on a cycle trip in Switzerland. After a 65km ride it was nice to check in with a cold towel and fresh drink provided at reception. Very nice touch Our room was on the small side but did have a fan and fridge so I was happy. Breakfast was nice and smoothies were brought to your table. Its the small things that makes you notice. Hotel is beside tram which is a couple of stops to old town or 20 minute walk

The hotel was next to the tram (7/15) and just 3 stops away from Zürich city centre. Sure you can easy walk too but since I injured my foot while cycling I didn’t have a choice. Very warm welcome from the staff with little hot towels and ice tea to make a over 30 degree day at the arrival a bit better. They also fluent in Englisch and German. A tiny lift brought me up to my tiny room 306 which included safe, fridge/min bar, kettle and air-con. With the fan on full blast it was still too hot for a good night sleep. WiFi code we got provided didn’t work and free other internet disconnected all the time. Feel free to read more reviews on my travel blog world-wiser. com Breakfast was great with huge variety on continental breakfast. Also everyone got a little smoothie on the table. Espresso machine was amazing with proper coffee or others like cappuccino.

Very near to Zurich Main Station. One can practically walk from train station or take a tram (with one change). Comfortable bed and nice rooms. Good Breakfast. One Indian restaurant near to this hotel.
