Spent one night in this lovely little hotel. It is quaint and immaculate. There were 4 adults sharing the advertised four person room (sofa pulled out to two twin beds). We were comfortable, but a bit cramped. Since we were only there for one night, we were fine.The hotel was very convenient to downtown Zurich and the self guided walking... More

I booked a self guided bike trip and this hotel was chosen for me, but I couldn't have done any better. I arrived at 9:00 in the morning and they gave me the first room that was cleaned. Rooms are small (it was a single), which is common in Europe, but clean, quiet and had everything I needed. Good wi-fi,... More

Pros: 1. Convenient location--about 15-minutes walking to the center of the city. 2. Free breakfast--considering the extremely high price in Switzerland, this is a huge plus, 3. Rooms are cozy. 4. Price is reasonable. 5. Parking 6. Free wi-fi Cons: Some rooms' bathrooms are tiny.

The hotel is very colse to the center. The room was pretty quiet located on the fifth floor with a nice view. Inside the room there was a coffee machine espresso, a real plus for an Italian. The staff was very friendly and helpful

The hotel can't be beat for the money, a short 10-15 minute walk from Zurich main station made us feel right in the middle of everything and at the same time it was in a very quiet area.
