The rooms a small but cozy . Expensive. Hotel is located on the one of the most popular squares where people get together on Sundays. People come to have their coffee and meet with the friends. From the hotel you can walk everywhere

Very nice hotel, clean, tidy, well appointed, friendly and helpful staff and not overrun. Location is great - central but accessible in the old town and right by the river. I highly recommend the hotels breakfast, to wake up with a beautiful view from the balcony all the way down the river to Lake Zurich. No better way to start...

Excellent location in a most interesting place. The staff were unfailingly courteous and helpful. During my stay I had a non-critical medical problem and the Concierge was most helpful. My wife and I will be staying there again!

M wife and I have traveled all over Europe in the past five years and stayed in quite a few hotels in the 4-5 star class.
