Close to train station in convenient location (although you have to go up the hill). Room is small, but that is typical for Switzerland. Very nice breakfast.

Hotel in a quiet convenient location
the hotel was very accommodating when we arrived early and they gave us a room that was ready very much appreciated after an overnight flight. The location is great with easy access to the old town and all it has to offer. The breakfast was great. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and we will be back

Some renovations to be done in annex building
Staying in the annex building - which I think has to be renovated - carpet to be exchanged, old facilities in bathroom, no real air con etc.
Thomas, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8,0
was there for a day as our last stop before leaving, overall good location, some parking available outside, bed was not that comfortable, matrass quality is not that great, also AC is a mobile unit that is somewhat noisy and requires window to be open, otherwise nice room. Didn't try restaurant for dinner (prices were reasonable though), but breakfast quality and selection was good, overall decent quality would spend another night there if/when back to Zurich.
