This really well located in the Altstadt as per the name but walking distance to everything. Breakfast is also really good to get you going. Only negative was that the little Thai restaurant staff next door make a ruckus as they close after late trading. Super friendly staff and best rooms.

Stayed: May 2017

Pros: modern, clean, amenities
Cons: not within walking distance of Zurich HB, staff not offer much information about Zurich nor were enthusiastic about their city.

Over all this hotel is great place to stay.

We are a family of 4. We stayed at this hotel at the end of December. Small hotel, in the center of the old town, close to everything and a short walking distance to tram stations, super-markets, shops and attractions. Rooms are not big, but we were surprised since they were bigger than we expected for such a location. The rooms are spotlessly clean, very tidy and in great condition. Breakfast is very good, with a big variety. Prices are typical to Zurich. What is great about this hotel are the people behind it. We had some health issues and they were so helpfull with everything! Thank-you so much for helping us and letting us feel at home. We will defenetily come again when in Zurich.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights during the Christmas season. It is conveniently located in the old town and is very clean and modern. Unfortunately, there were just too many things about it I didn't like, so I cannot recommend it to you in good faith.

One, the room (44) was tiny. Other than in Paris, this is the smallest double room I have ever stayed in.
Two, it was expensive. Ok Zurich is always going to be expensive, but this was definitely not a good value for money hotel
Three, it was noisy. Even though the location, in a small side street, looked like it was going to be quiet, we could not open the window at night because of the noise from the tramway and all the drunk young people coming back from partying in the old town.
Four, we are not big people, but we could hardly move about in the bathroom, it was that tight.
Five, there was a distinct lack of human warmth in the staff. They were efficient, but not friendly, and certainly lacked in the smile department. It was a bit disconcerting to feel like we were disturbing the staff when we went for breakfast.
All in all, I give the hotel high marks for cleanliness and even in design, but low to very low marks everywhere else. There are better hotels in Zurich. Don't waste your money here.
