Fantastic location, very central. Spacious room for a 2* guesthouse, plenty of sockets for charging appliances. This is a depandance of a 3* hotel, reception is in the hotel, on a street parallel to the one where the guesthouse is. If you are not having a breakfast in the hotel, you can have a free coffee at the reception in... More

the room looks way bigger on the picture than in real life. I might have missed it but it was a surprise that there was no reception in the guesthouse building, so had to walk to the hotel to check in and get the door card. In general, room was super clean

we were in the guesthouse, which is small but clean and reasonably quite, good value for money. If you can't walk stairs you should look elsewhere though. The evaluator is slow and too small for 2 people.

Stayed here one night in transit & found it an excellent option for a "no frills" hotel in very expensive Zurich. Location is ideal about 10 minutes walk from the station, in the old town with great bars & restaurants close by. Rooms are very small but clean & modern. Check in is at the hotel around the corner.

This is a simple, clean hotel in a great location in Zurich. Maybe ten minutes max from the train station, and right in the heart of the town center, you cannot beat the location. The room was in the GUESTHOUSE, not the main hotel. Room 644 on the fourth floor, facing into the quiet courtyard. Great WiFi and the best... More

well, it is not a star hotel. The room was small, but okay for staying one or two nights. But it was really loud out side of the room during cleaning and you can hear people saying outside the door.
