We enjoyed our stay here. The room was very small and typical price for the city. Breakfast was good not great but we enjoyed it. The best part is the location and helpful staff.

+: The room is quite spacious and the bathroom was very clean. The windows are big so providing good ventilation but the mobile aircon in our room didn't really work. The breakfast offered sufficient variety. Staffers were young but courteous and helpful. Easily accessible from the city centre/ main train station by tram stopping at the front. Quiet and safe...

It is my first time to visit Zurich. The hotel is recommended by my colleague. It has a good breakfast and large bed. The wifi quality is quite good and the hotel allows 3 devices to be connected by one password. The number 7 tram will take you to the hotel from railway station to Sorell.

The hotel is in a very good location in Zurich. Tram stops almost at the door, station 5 minutes away and close to main shopping precinct. Staff couldnt be more helpful and polite, rooms are clean, big, and all you need. Breakfast is wonderful.

Our 25 kg capacity luggage bag handle broke and hotel reception saved the situation by lending us a toolbox full of tools and screws and bits and pieces that enabled us to fix the problem without costing us a cent.
