I am at the hotel right now, fab boutique hotel in the heart of Zurich, close by to everything. Staff very attentive, it's spotless, full of culture connections and has a wonderful vibe. Much recommended. Will be staying again.

Stayed at the Altstadt for 2 nights. Very good location. Near to shops, restaurants and places of interest. Just a short walk from the river in a narrow street. Room adequate and very clean with modern fittings in the shower room/toilet. The coffee bar on the ground floor is a good place to savour excellent coffee and cakes or alcohol... More

Wonderful little hotel in Old Towne Zurich. Great shops and restaurants nearby and an easy walk to Bahnhofstrasse, the main shopping district. The hotel lobby was a surprise as the receptionist checked us in through a window connecting a coffee bar and the hotel. She was expecting us and immediately made us feel welcome. The hotel staff was extremely friendly... More

This place when you arrive can seem awkward as the entrance is terrible, but considering the price, the location and the rooms you will love it. Ask for the rooms at the fifth floor. Breakfast is served in a nice little cosy room. Great discovery !

This is a small and friendly hotel with good location in a walking distance from the city and the lake. It was reasonably priced in mid week. Fairly good variety in the breakfast buffet. Simple and smart. Free wifi.

Receptionist was exceptionally friendly, pro-active and accommodating. Made a good welcome! Room was not as small as feared, perhaps I've travelled enough to Hong Kong and Tokyo to not expect too much. Cleanliness of the room was excellent, towels are fresh, and bathroom amenities are of good quality, if slightly limited. TV screen was a tad small, but no major... More

Great little hotel in a fantastic location! Very easy to walk everywhere! Only a few blocks to the lake and the main attractions in town.

It is an expensive Hotel (CHF 560 Euro for 2 nights ) recommended by United Airline. It was terrible surprise for me, to find out that there is no air-conditioning . You even can not open the windows because it is noisy from outside (facing the street) and high lighting intensity coming from the street. It was so hot and... More
