I have stayed here many times and it's great. Added benefits are excellent free WiFi, soft drinks and chocolate in mini bar also free, and on check in, tokens for a free drink and 20CHF off a meal in the restaurant. It is very cold in Zurich in January and the room was only warm enough by keeping the curtains...

A comfortable, but rather basic hotel a short walk from Bahnhofstrasse. Very friendly staff who make you feel welcome. The ground floor restaurant is good and is open until 11 pm also on Sundays. We handed over our car keys for parking. Excellent service!
