    Only stayed one night but on check in Sasha was super friendly and helpful. Stayed in economy room for one and it was a pleasant size and even bed was bigger than normal twin bed. Was a Saturday so I could hear noise often but it is a great location and short walk from main train station. Would definitely stay again.

    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

    We arrived a little early and the staff let us have our room. It’s in a great location near old Zürich town. Walking distance to train station. The breakfast was also nice.

    The loft room is perfect for one small person and reasonably priced. This hotel is walkable to and from the main train station (HB) if you know the direction. Property sits just above the cafes and shops and has a beautiful Starbucks near. Cold breakfast has variety and the service ladies are kind and helpful. Front desk clerks are kind and helpful.

    The front desk staff are exceptionally nice and thoughtful, starting with being taken up to our room and showing us the facilities. Small boutique type hotel in an excellent location near old tow. Great walking area. Close to Old Town and the Central Train Station. The room was fine. Clean, modern, comfortable, quiet, enough space for our 2 suitcases and to move around easily. Nice bathroom. Basic amenities: 1 glass (The spot for the 2nd glass empty the first day but replaced with next 2 cleaning staff on consecutive days), very basic towels that were poor quality so some fraying. The bath-mat was really shredding on the sides & I asked for a new one (and one new hand towel for same reason) when staff was in the room seeing to the AC. We were unable to cool our room down & asked the front desk how it worked. She came up to the room, saw the problem (no one had attached a hot air outflow hose, returned and fixed it. Impressive. The included breakfast in the hotel restaurant was excellent. Lots to choose from. One thing that would change the hotel from a 4 to a 5 star hotel for me is something simple. Replace the cheap, thin towels with good quality ones. The effect would be outstanding. The rest of the hotel & amenities are first class. We would definitely recommend the Hotel St. Josef and we would definitely stay there again.
