My room was on the fifth, uppermost, floor and was quiet, spotlessly clean and nicely equipped with a comfortable bed, excellent pillows and duvet and the now-typical Nespresso coffee machine. The room size was fine for one person, but might be a bit cramped...

An excellent stay at an excellent hotel. The hotel offers a great location and provides an amazing 5th floor rooftop terrace with views of Zurich from which we celebrated New Year while watching the fireworks on the lake. The restaurant is exceptional for both breakfast and dinner and the staff made our stay special through catering to all our needs!
