I spent a night at the Hotel Greulich. It is beautifully designed and is really interesting architecturally. It is named after the street in which it is located and the street is named after Herman Greulich, a communist colleague of Karl Marx and a member of the second Internationale. It looks dramatic from front and rear and the room I...

This unique, less than 30 rooms hotel is a great place to unwind in peace and quiet just moments away from all that Zurich has to offer. If you like staying in more of a residential neighborhood, then this is the place for you. We stayed in Deluxe room 4, which we were led to by the very friendly and...

We enjoyed a two-night stay at the Greulich. Walking to the hotel from the station (using the hotel's own directions, which only work if you happen to leave the station somewhere you can see the Post Office building!) was fairly long, but we soon found the hotel, on a corner in a residential area of the city. The modern design...

I'll start this off by saving this is a very "modern" hotel. If thats what you are looking for, I'm sure it's better than 3 stars. We stayed there only one night, which I was happy about because the rooms were not plush, comfy rooms, rather industrial and tech-ie. The room we were in you have to leave the property...

I was here on a business trip and had actually planned to stay closer to the trains station, but was pleasantly surprised at how nice the people were here. The bar was a cozy experience with some of the best tapas and drinks I've had.

Huge and modern flat, well decorated, everything works and with big windows. Common area is cool and the staff is very kind. Although not in the center, you just have to walk to blocks to get the train to the center. Walking by night not very pleasant if coming from the center
