This hotel is situated 10 mins from the main train station on the tram. The trams run every 3 to 5 mins and are the only thing in Zurich that is cheap. The hotel is very clean. The room we had was small but functional. The bathroom was very well appointed but again small. There is a fan in the... More

Nice enough hotel, clean and fairly well-located (15 mins by tram from city centre). Would have LOVED a kettle for tea and coffee. Also Zurich was very hot when we were there at the beginning of July so a desk fan wasn't really up to the job of keeping us cool. However, it was very clean and well-priced for somewhere... More

The carpet seems to be old thus have some bad odor when you get in room however after opening windows it goes away. Our room was on ground floor which was next to road thus lot of traffic... More

Good location with easy access to the central station. Tram station just 2 mins away. Super market was just across the hotel building. The room was very clean n well maintained only very tiny with very little space to move around.

The hotel location is very strategic as the bus/train stations is very near 5 mins walk. However – the hotel itself is “you get what you pay for” Type; do not get me wrong it is a very good hotel and the staff were very helpful and supportive. The Hygienic of the bathroom and the bed sheets is 10/10. I... More

We only stayed for one night (late arrival), so only used the room and had breakfast too. The room was adequate with a good shower. The bed was comfortable and a fair amount of storage space too. The only downside was the traffic noise in the early morning. Breakfast was good, however, no boiling water for tea. Would recommend for... More

When it comes for hotels in Zurich expect to pay a lot especially if it is close to the city center. This ones offers easy access to the city center. Within 2min. walking distance is the "Albisrieden Platz" tram stop No2 and No3 will take you to the city center within 10min time. Both are very frequent you wont have... More

Zurich is such a n expensive city so it was hard to find an affordable, decent hotel. After some research we found this hotel and it was very good for the price. on the main tram line that takes you to the city center; it was clean; and the staff was very friendly. I would stay here again.
