    Exceptional

    The staff is really friendly, always welcoming you with a big smile, the hotel location is perfect 5 min. walk from the station, the rooms are clean and quiet. There is also free of charge internet connection and the breakfast is varied and good quality. I will definitely book a room there when I'm back to Zurich!

    Very good

    Thr location is excellent being only 10 minutes walk to the railway station and 10 minutes walk to the main shopping street of Zurich.

    The hotel is situated in a noisy location with many restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood.The rooms are very small and basically furnished.

    Fabulous

    the location is just perfect - right in the middle of the old town, the room was big enough, comfortable and very clean, staff members were polite and helpful, and there is free internet at the entrance

    the heating in the room was not sufficient and the cold air was coming through the ventilation opening, plus the price is really very high for such a simple small *** european hotel

    Location is perfect (close to mail shopping area, parks, bars and central train station) Bearing in mind very poor design of the hotel and services - I would never come back this hotel...

    Superb

    I like the attitude of the reception they try to help as much as possible and we wanted to move to other room they have done it without any problem. The breakfast was OK they are serving good food with all kind of bread cheese' boiled egg and different kind of yogurts and fruits. They have free internet and even computer stand in case you do not have laptop. The location is very good by foot you can go to old city and to Zurich HB and shopping is very close. They have also air condition for hot days. I strongly recommend this hotel for people that are not looking for luxury hotels and would like to have a pleasure and home hospitality.
