          The location was really good. Complimentary water and internet.

          The price. Extra charges for some breakfast items.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Excellent location, quiet, clean, recommended

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          This hotel is well situated in Zurich and was an interesting hotel.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Excellent location in the old town, surrounded by cafes, restaurants and interesting little shops and within walking distance (about 6 or 7 mins) from the main railway station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Quite a good breakfast (better than a lot of hotels in which I've stayed).

          It's expensive for what it is - but then, Zurich is a very expensive city.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          We enjoyed the fact that the hotel was situated in the centre of the town and the access to the shops, restaurants and sights was easy. The secure parking provided helped us a lot.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The Hotel is in good area for travaling , nearly Central tain staion and shopping area with old town too.

          The room is to small for Triple person ( room ) , but for double room is OK .

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Location of the hotel is good, near by with Mc Donalds, Migros & lots more..

          Pls prepare some hot breakfast without paying extra. During our stay we had cold breakfast.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The location is excellent from a convenience point of view. The main station is walkable and there is a direct tram also that takes about 3-4 mins to reach the station

          The area is full of dance bars and adult movie theatres. While it may not offend many, it is not suitable to stay in this hotel with children. However we did not feel uneasy at all and there we felt totally safe moving around even around 11 pm

        • Single
          4.2

          The hotel once there looked different than the pictures on the internet site!!! Disappointing, breakfast basic (bread was very good though). Near the red lights tiny district in Niederdorf and therefore very noisy at night. Pro the price payd not a value (190.- chf)... I could have booked a Four Points Sheraton for 220.-and it would have been all worth it.

          See above. Disappointing in general, compared to what presented in the hotel internet site...and bed with "hair" between the sheets.

        • Single
          7.4

          room was well lit and spacious free wifi was good

          shower was too small i guess there is no such thing as a real double bed in europe (just two singles pushed together)

        • Single
          8.2

          without parking. parking available 3 blocks distance @40 CHF per 24 hours

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Within easy each of the station and centrally placed for shopping. Exemplary cleanliness

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          has very good location in old town. Shuttle bus to the airport was also worth of money (30 CHF / 2 persons) even HB at walking distance.

          The hotel room quite oldish style.

        • Single
          9.2

          Its proximity to the railway station.

          Were the room air-conditioned, I would have slept better during the warm nights.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          We do not like the colour scheme of the toilet it appears to be very dark. Too much lights in the toilet too. When you on the switch it on every lights in the toilet so it makes it too hot in there. There are mosquitoes in the room so we have to off the light near the window luckily there do not bite us during the night. However the staff are nice and friendly do we are fine with the overall.
