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...

I spent a night here on a whistlestop tour of Zurich. This hotel was a great find. A 10 min walk frm Zurich HB, (follow the instructions on the hotel website) and across the road from the Old Town. My room was clean, light, with tv, good (free) wifi and had a tablet beside the bed, handy for those who...

A very convenient place to stay with everything within walking distance or easy access using the trams. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and the staff welcoming and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable with an excellent walk in shower. Continental breakfast was good.

Well located close to the old town. Easy walk to everywhere. Easy to find. Good breakfast. Staff was good, check-in was easy. And the weekend I went it was a great value. Room was well taken care of and had a good balance of old and new (building was old, everything else was new). They did a good job of...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Just a few min walk from Central Station and close to Central tram stop, Hotel St. Josef is one of the best 3- star hotels in Zurich. The room rate is reasonably set (by Zurich standard, of course). I got a room in the annex building - I was impressed with such a generous size...

We liked staying at this hotel. There was 3 of us and it was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was great! Location is also pretty good but not in the heart of everything. You have to go up a hill or some steps to get there.
