This is a very good hotel. It is well located in a nice part of town (2 mins to the Park Hyatt). The staff are wonderful. They offer a complimentary drink on arrival and the mini bar in the room is FREE!!! Not the glitzyest hotel you will ever visit but first class. Ray

The only reason that I have rated this hotel 4 instead of 5 is the pricing policy. The price I have paid was compatible with the hotel of higher category. I do not have any claims to the hotel quality. It is really very high. No luxury but functionality is on the top level. Convenient location, good and spacious room,...

Good Location near to Tram and Train stations. Bahnhofstrasse is 5 mins away. All the hotels I've stayed in Zurich seem to be the same clean, small rooms and don't look like they have been changed for 20 years. No complaints, service was good, the breakfast buffet was a bit small but everything seemed Fresh

this is the ideal place for good night sleep, quiet meetings, nice breakfast and very polite and helpful stuff. one problem was the restaurant. usually the restaurant is one of the best fish restaurant in Zurich. this time we were little disappointed of the way the meat and fish were grilled. it was overcooked and dry.

We chose this hotel based on the reviews and figured we'd treat ourselves a little, as it was a bit pricy. The location was great. There were so many extra touches that made us feel special, a room upgrade, fruit basket, chocolates and mini-bar, coupons for dining and a drink each. The staff were amazing. Love the eco-friendliness.
