Within 10 minutes of Bahnhofstrasse and core Zurich, this four star has no charges for a superb buffet breakfast and very early check in. Simple frill less rooms with great pillow menu and super service, this one has a great fish restaurant with 20% discount. For 350 chf a steal.

Not bad but slightly overpriced for what you get. The pluses are definitely the location - quick walk to the lake and also to the main shopping streets - and good breakfast and wifi. The staff were friendly and professional. I personally found the hotel to be slightly overpriced given the very small and somewhat dated room. Keep in mind...

I do reccomend to stay here, because of location, staff, breakfast, transport availability. You may relax or have a good sport in fitness center, it is included to room charge. Rooms are clean.
