There are some reviews on TP where guests are complaining about the music downstairs. I think this makes the charm of this hotel . I mean where else can you go where you can mingle with locals watch a concert in the evening and being one block from where everything happens? Plus in a city where the average hotel price...

It was real excitement to stay at this small hotel which is combined to a stylish restaurant / bar in Zuerich 4. They had nice food and some good drinks while hosting a small concert. Rooms (maybe four or five) are retro in style but very cosy. Some feature a balcony, but bathrooms on the floor. Kitchen available. Beside all...

The Kafischnaps was not awful, it was OK. Its main problem was that it hadn't made its mind up if it was a bar or a pension. You book in through the bar and are taken up to the first floor to your room. There's only one bathroom and a separate toilet for a possible nine guests, so all of...

I had planned to stay three nights at the Kafischnaps (and I had to pay for that), but I left after the first night because it was virtually impossible for me to stay any longer: My room was directly above the bar/café which turned out to play music as loud as a club, with aggressive beats and until half past...

We arrived in Zurich in the midst of a heat wave of about 90 degrees, so we were disappointed that Kafischnaps, a pension in Zurich, did not have air conditioning. However, we checked in during the morning and were able to shower (shared but immaculately clean bathrooms). The room was sparse but adequate. They didn't change the bed (duvet and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
KAFISCHNAPS is a coffee bar situated in the heart of Zurich, between the districts of Wipkingen and Unterstrass. It is a young, typically "Zurich" location - a blend of good old-fashioned "Beiz" tradition* and modern, sophisticated lifestyle. Hipsters share a table with fundies, kids get their Babccino and even your mom would feel at home in our little place. In addition to the eatery, the Kafischnaps houses a small private hotel with five superbly furnished rooms, which is ideal for tourists who want to experience life in Zurich at close quarters. * Beiz is the Swiss German word for pub or inn ... more   less
