Wonderful Stay!
This hotel was great! Our room was super cute. We had a view of the river, and we even slept one night with the window open and there were no noise problems. We loved eating breakfast at the bar/restaurant that was attached. Staff at the front desk was really great too!

Excellent choice in central Zürich
Well appointed room and comfortable bed. The street below is quite busy so sleeping with the window open was not an option, but the ventilation was good enough that it wasn't a problem. High quality bathroom amenities from Kiels. We had an early start in the morning, so we didn't get to sample the breakfast. I would stay there again.

Specious nice room but outdated hotel
The room was spacious but the furniture simple. The hotel is old and needs renovation. Great view from the library balcony. I wanted to drink coffee in the morning in the library but they started to clean by using loud machines. I think cleaning times should be planned better.

Fair 4,0
No aircon and summer in Zurich is regularly 30 degrees, no fan, just a super noisy portable aircon unit of wheels with an exhaust tube hanging out of the 4th floor window. Outside on the street is a busy intersection with trams. So either cook in your bed at night or listen to the traffic. The TV didn't work. The staff are all lovely people.

Tiny room. Bathroom needs floor redone. Water damage. Nothing particularly special about this place.

The hotel is in a great location near the Zurich main train station, about a 10-15 minute walk straight up the street. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Good restaurants and shopping nearby. There's also a grocery store right across the street.

I just traveled to Barcelona, Madrid, Zurich, Paris and London. This was my favorite hotel on the trip. The location is PERFECT for getting around Zurich and to the train station. The staff is very friendly! The toiletries are so good I'm going to switch to the shampoo and conditioner permanently. The room was simple. The bed was extremely comfortable and the hotel was very quaint! I will be taking my significant other back to this hotel!
