    A couple of inconveniences but very nice.

    Very clean. The rates drastically changed one day to the next. Our king bed were two twins pushed together. The slipped apart a lot. I’m old school and use washcloths. There weren’t any. I would have preferred not having anything in the mini fridge so I could keep my waters in there instead. I love its location. When I wanted to watch TV I could find channels that spoke English. I really did enjoy it here. I also like that they lock the main doors to the hotel at night. I will go back.

    Modernized old hotel in a great location

    Great location across the river from the train station and right in the heart of downtown Zurich. Walking distance to riverfront restaurants and other attractions. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. It's an old hotel that's been modernized, so the rooms vary. We reserved a riverview double, but were "upgraded" to a junior suite. Yes, the suites have more room and a sofa, but they are on the top floor, with dormer windows (making for a dark room) and a low, sloping ceiling (watch your head!). And no room for nightstands next to the bed. The bathroom was excellent, with a spacious walk-in shower, and having a refrigerator and safe (big enough for a laptop) is a real plus. Very clean throughout. Very comfortable bed. I guess this is actually a 4 1/2 star review. Rates are reasonable for Zurich, so well worth a visit, just be sure you get a room you like.

    Basic but OK

    This hotel was good for what we needed it for just a bed the night before our flight. It was very basic but clean. The staff were very very helpful and there is free water, including sparkling water and take away coffee. The location was fine. The breakfast was a little average but did the job.

    Location, location, location

    Fantastic location near the railway station and old Zurich attractions. Rooms are decent but small, but it’s fine for an overnight. People are ok. The highlight of this hotel is the location, perfect for launching your travels to other parts of Switzerland due to vicinity to the railway station.

    I booked and paid for the room that has 3 adults capacity. It is also written that I will get 1 double/queen bed AND 1 sofa bed. But on the day wechecked in the room, the sofa bed hasn't been prepared so we went down to tell the staff, the staffsaid "okay we will ask the housekeeping to prepareit", the next day when we checked out, they chargedme for the sofa bed that supposed to be included inmy room. I even checked the price and show themthat 2 people capacity and 3 people capacity hasdifferent prices. so what is the point for bookingthe 3 capacity room that has higher price but I stillagot charged for the Sofa Bed. I rather than book for 2 adults capacity and then I book another extra bed. During my stay in Switzerland, all the hotels that Ibooked for the 3 adults capacity, were all already included for the sofa bed. The staff insisted that Inneed to pay for the sofa bed.
