We stayed a night at Rothaus and it was one night too many. It's next door to a nightclub with music blaring all night, clearly audible through the paper thin walls and lack of soundproofing. When raised with staff, their solution was for us to get refunded and find another hotel. This would've been fine, except this was at 1am!!...

We booked through booking.com and found this to be a cheap hotel in close proximity to the train station. The hotel services were alright. The room was reasonable with a small table fan and two single beds. They also provided the baby crib that we requested. The bathroom had the basics. On the downside, the vicinity was pathetic, with lot...

The hotel is located in the heart of Zurichs red light district, but it is definitely a positive surprise. The rooms are clean and are equipped with all one needs for a short stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good noise isolation against The serious party life going on outside. Its two stars are fully deserved. Tea and coffee...

Friendly staff, parking available with extra cost, close to bus stop for city center. Not a good place to stay with family and the elevator was out of service on checkout Breakfast was with extra cost and we didn;t choose it, but we took it in city center. No aircondition in the room, there was only a fan

I had the top room- sizeable, nice views, a long way away from what can be a noisy downtown; v pleasant receptionist, breakfast on the house; what else can I say to pad this out to the requisite 200 words ?

This hotel has friendly, helpful staff, and is clean. It is on the minimalist side. The area is loud at night (we staying one Saturday night) and ear plugs are available from the front desk. Great hotel if you want to be near some night spots. Breakfast is an added charge. There were a lot of sketchy people hanging out...

I spent 2 night at this hotel in June: clean spacy room, quiet, windows to the backyard. Now I booked again for 3 nights. What a desaster: small dark room, cramped shower/WC, disfunctional sink, window just above crossroad with lots of loud traffic, noisy people, and on top of this roadworks during the night. I looked for another hotel after...

We totally loved Zurich. Beautiful city! This hotel it's in one of the most lively part of the city. It's nice and cheap. One thing that we found amazing is having breakfast until 1pm!!! For sure we will come back in Zurich!
