My husband and I loved our stay here. I was worried because we arrived late (due to our delayed flight), but found the hotel’s receptionist waiting for us. I loved the design of our room and our spacious bathroom. The soap, shampoo, and conditioner products were locally sourced and smelled great. Another perk to staying here is that it is close to public transportation and just a short walk away from gorgeous sites that Zürich has to offer. Our stay here was very brief and we both wished it could’ve been longer! We would love to return again!

Minimally decorated room, super friendly staff, and great location make the stay a very pleasant experience. The library is very charming, quiet place to work, read, and drink coffee. The bar is also nice, and the restaurant, which has a card menu as minimalist as the rooms, serves great food, most notably the vegetarian meal and the dessets.

The hotel is located 650m from Zurich main train station, good location if you are travel by train. And tram station is just located opposite the hotel , very convenient. The room is reasonable size; but suggest to ask for room facing the river with balcony ( quiet and beautiful view); rooms facing main road are noisy when Tram passed by! The front desk was super helpful and friendly!!👍👍and also the hotel provide Nespresso and water in the drawing rooms and library room, plus points !!! The restaurant at first floor also provided very good foods 😋

Fantastic! In the heart of Zurich, a charming boutique hotel with attention to detail. A perfect balance between modern and cosy. Helpful, friendly staff ensure a lovely experience. Apart from the restaurant that serves excellent local dishes, the hotel has a common area/library with complimentary coffee and a terasse directly along the bank of the Sihn river.

Really nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Very close to the main train station and tram stops so easy to get around. Leant us two socket adapters for the room which was really useful (didn't realise Switzerland was different from French / Italian sockets!). The front desk was really helpful and as with most Swiss people, multi lingual and friendly. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Overall would definitely go back and recommend

Recommended hotel. perfect location to reach the center on foot. Close to all essential services. Convenient parking at the casino. Basic room, clean and complete with every need. The professionalism and courtesy of the girls at the reception deserve an even greater vote! Vincenzo (Rome)
