POSITIVE: friendly & helpful staff; great location if you wanna go out in the Langstrasse area, public transports nearby; clean rooms; NEGATIVE: noisy area, bring your earplugs!; rooms are simple, with plastic curtains, no cabinets, etc.

Stayed over a weekend. Very noisy from the street because of the night life. The cleanliness in the room could be improved, in the soap pump dead small flies were floating around. The drain in the shower didn't work properly. Stood there with water covering my feet after a short shower. My bed was extremely soft, almost touched the floor...

Our fault when we booked one night as we were in Zurich for a concert, but we had no idea this was the red light district. This only became apparent when we were walking to the gig venue and had to pass porn cinemas, strip clubs and a lot of very interesting looking "ladies". The room was very basic, the...

Very simple room they have, but clean and bed is ok. Shower is strong, room is warm enough, and don't expect too much. The location is near by red light district, and you can hear the disco or pub noisy music, however, I was really tire at that night, and I can sleep well. Wifi is provided for free but...

We stayed a night at Rothaus and it was one night too many. It's next door to a nightclub with music blaring all night, clearly audible through the paper thin walls and lack of soundproofing. When raised with staff, their solution was for us to get refunded and find another hotel. This would've been fine, except this was at 1am!!...

We booked through booking.com and found this to be a cheap hotel in close proximity to the train station. The hotel services were alright. The room was reasonable with a small table fan and two single beds. They also provided the baby crib that we requested. The bathroom had the basics. On the downside, the vicinity was pathetic, with lot...

The hotel is located in the heart of Zurichs red light district, but it is definitely a positive surprise. The rooms are clean and are equipped with all one needs for a short stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good noise isolation against The serious party life going on outside. Its two stars are fully deserved. Tea and coffee...

Friendly staff, parking available with extra cost, close to bus stop for city center. Not a good place to stay with family and the elevator was out of service on checkout Breakfast was with extra cost and we didn;t choose it, but we took it in city center.
