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.

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...

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...

On the positive side is its top location and friendly staff. However it is a bit minimalistic and outdated. Actually there is nothing special to it. There is a kettle but no coffee. Not so much detail focused management. There are a couple of better hotels in the same price range of less in the immediate area.

This hotel is nicely located in the old town of Zurich and the price is reasonable for Switzerland. The rooms are clean but a bit outdated and the bathroom is quite small, the shower not great. The minibar has a limited offering. The service however is very friendly, the breakfast is limited and not extremely fresh. All in all an...

I have been at this hotel following a recommendation from some friends. The hotel is very clean with a very central location which is perfect for visiting the heart of the city of Zurich. Our room N. 15 was at the first floor at same floor where breakfast is served, therefore, a little noise in the morning. The room was...

The room was lovely (modern and spacious, if we hadn't filled it with rollaways, children and suitcases), but not air conditioned (wouldn't matter in the winter, but not so great in August). Tiny closet space and no drawer space to unpack into (maybe they removed a dresser to fit us in?). Mini fridge generated too much heat, which wasn't good...

I highly recommend this hotel. Parking was a bit hard but probably not an issue for most and you're in the old town (should expect that). The room was nice size and very cool with different writers as their theme. Breakfast was great too! All within walking distance of everything.
