I stayed here in October 2012. Its location is ideal: less than a ten-minute from the Bahnhof. There is a tram stop at the door, although the hotel is so sound-proof I didn't notice the tram until my second day! The staff are helpful and knowledgable. My room was more than adequate by European standards, and very quiet and well-equipped.... More

Front desk very helpful. Location is an easy walk from the train station. Room average size, very clean, good wi-fi. Cafes nearby, so is red light district. Shower had partial glass and allowed water to escape. Good lighting.

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor. I would simply like to clarify that we are not near the red light district, but that certain etablissements are to be found in the Niederdorf, which is a shopping and restaurant mile. Sincerely, Monica Voegeli More

A little far away from Zurich Central Station, though within walking distance. When stepped put of elevator, there was no immediately visible direction for rooms by room numbers. Bed is the biggest in this trip to Europe. Free Internet is appreciated.

This is a good hotel in a very expensive city and in a central location...5 min walk from station. The staff were most helpful, the room was spacious and well appointed. The breakfast was good...but expensive so do get an all-inclusive deal if you can.

Having stayed at this hotel on a regular basis during 2011, it was nice to return. A very warm welcome on arrival. You would not have thought it had been over a year since I had stayed here.
