Just on the edge of old town. 10-15 minute walk from the train and old town. We found it clean and very quiet. Our room was in the annex. Breakfast was very good. Nice selection of fruit, pastries. Nice easy check in/ out. Friendly staff very helpful.

Enjoyed my recent stay here. The hotel is well placed to walk around the old town. The room was spacious the breakfast filling and the staff very helpful. It is near to the station and walkable but you do have to climb some steps to get to the upper road where the hotel is located or walk past it and...

The hotel is very comfortable and modern. Most parts now appear to be new or at least very recent. The room had a comfortable bed and a nice shower and a very usable desk for work. Breakfast was well above average for European fare. The staff was extremely helpful and was aware when I arrived that I had stayed there...

The Hotel St. Josef in Zurich is a real find! Located a 5 - to 10 -minute walk from virtually everything in Center City, including the university and the main train station as well as shopping and restaurants, it is clean, quiet, friendly and super-efficient in the classic Swiss manner. Our 2nd floor room in the annex next door was...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and would recommend staying here when in Zurich. The room is clean, small and quiet and the bed was large and comfortable. We stayed in winter and the heating made the room warm and cosy. The location was perfect and within walking distance to the main sites in Zurich as well...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend it. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, and location is hard to beat. We thought the breakfast was delicious - breads, cheese, juice, cereal - and a major savings deal since eating out in Zurich is so pricey. The coffee was great too. We would stay...

This hotel is a short walk from Zurich train station and is an easy walk to the old town. Rooms are fairly utilitarian and pretty small, but ok for a short stay. We found the beds very hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast was included in the room rate, a limited but fresh continental buffet was provided. No big complaints but we...

We picked this hotel based on the reviews on trip advisor, costs and location. We were glad we did. We got a little lost when we got off the train in Zurich station but we managed to find our way, once we realised the correct route we realised just how close it is to the old town. The reception staff...
