Amazing hotel, room, view, staff! This quaint and cozy hotel was absolutely amazing. We only had one night in Zurich and wished we had more. Our room was small, yet extremely cozy and did not feel cramped in the least. The location could not be better and the staff was more then helpful. Cannot wait to stay here again!

This is a lovely old style old charm hotel very close to the promenade and quite central. There are lots of nice extras you would expect in a member of the Small Luxery Hotels. It is quite a small hotel but the staff are lovely. Big plus is the internet speed is really fast, something essential for business travellers
