        Central location, good breakfast, baclony, sound proof windows (almost), soft pillows

        Central location equals noise if too hot to keep windows shut. However in mid July we had no problem.A Tad expensive for a uk clientelle

        Good nice atmosphare, value for money in expensive Zurich

        Cheap, but had everything we needed. Bring ear plugs. The church bells nearby never stop ringing. good breakfast. Great location. Minimum but clean rooms with nice staff. A great deal and we didn't feel like we were sacrificing.

        Loud church bells and city street noise. The noise is just people andbelss as there is no automotive traffic. Nothing ear plugs and a fan couldn't solve. Also, morning hostess at breakfast was a little brusque. I found her to be charming in her rigid manners. But my fellow travelers felt at odds with her. The hostess has a strict way of doing things. Do it her way and all will be fine.

        Lovely modern hotel with a lift in the old town. An easy walk from zurich hauptbahnhof if u just have a piece or 2 luggage. Lovely crew, the only ones who greet u with a smile (worth paying the extra money) after having been to france, italy (both overrated, rude, stingy and u get rat holes for paying thru your teeth). Shower cubicle and sink in room, an airy, big room. Substantial breakfast included with a jolly server unlike the breakfast server at les crayeres reims looking down his aquiline gaul nose

        For the price I paid, toilet should have been in the room but its zurich

        We booked the superior suite which was bright, open and spacious. Fantastic location, great breakfast and friendly staff. We will stay here again if we go back to Zurich.

        Nice and relatively inexpensive small hotel in the heart of Zurich's Altstadt. Close to transportation, plenty of restaurants and shops. Great breakfast, nice bar for afternoon or late night drinks. Very responsive staff, very clean everything, nice complimentary soda, juice and mineral water in the room. Thoughtful and tasteful design throughout the hotel. Excellent free wifi.

        Rooms on the first floor have windows that cannot be opened more than a crack due to bylaws in Zurich. And, there is no in-room ventilation of any kind. As a result my room on the first floor was very stuffy and hot. The hotel was quite nice and provided a fan, but the room was still unpleasant in that regard. Ask for a room with a window that opens normally.

        Fantastic location and very nice room with cute balcony. Small but very nice. Shared toilet out in the corridor is fine.

        A little bit expensive for a room with a shared toilet

        Friendliness of staff was amazing. Could not find a better location in city centre. Extremely spacious room with a very homely comfortable feeling. Outstanding stay for such a reasonable price.

        The Best thing about this hotel is the staff , they are friendly , lovely , amazing and they will make your day. The location is great, at the heart of town and ten mins walk from Train station. Loved it

        The only weird thing was shared toilet , the toilets were shared between 6 rooms but other than that everything was great.

        The location couldn't be better.

        The young staff was great but there was an old lady during breakfast in the morning who first gave me a hard time during checkout just because she realized that her copy of the receipt from the night before wasn't signed by me or something - like it was my fault. Then she got all wound up about breakfast - that I had a single room and was having breakfast with someone else or something...I tried to explain in English but she didn't understand and kept getting irritated. if it wasn't for her, I'd definitely stay here again. But she spoiled the experience for me and I wouldn't recommend the hotel to anyone I know,

        This is a really cool hotel, right in the centre of town. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, they couldn't do enough to help. I really enjoyed my stay.

        There was a shared toilet (but shower facilities in the room), which was a little inconvenient, but it was fully explained in advance.

        breakfast was great and everything was brand new. minibar (without alcohol) was free. The room was very small but has a nice balcony. No toilet but has a shower. No kettle but has hairdryer. Location is fantastic. Special commendation to Brigitte and Gogo for their excellent service. Gay friendly hotel.
