We have been there on June. The location is good just a few mins walk from Zurich HB, however it is very noisy at night as it is located at the heart of Zurich. Many traffic noise. It is very hot without air conditioning. i must open the window for ventilation or I will suffocate. However, when I open the window, I can't sleep at all because of the noisy traffic.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled as a couple

Although this is a riverside hotel, no room has a view of the river, as the front rooms are all offices.
interestingly, the room had a proper lock/key - no wavy card that goes phut at the first opportunity (you have to remember to lock it on way out though).
Usual absence of kettle/coffee in room, and there was no blind/curtain in the bathroom. I could only find 2 electric sockets in the room.
Note that the Swiss restaurant is *not* part of hotel, at least not as far as paying is concerned - you can't have your restaurant bill added to your room bill.
Also note that the restaurant menu you can find online is not the same one as you get in the restaurant - the choice is wider & prices are lower than the online version! Also, the prices on the paper menu were higher than what I actually got charged... all important factors when on a budget artificially limited by my company's expenses policy...
Oh, and the wifi connection is distinctly ropey...

Room Tip: Rooms at back noisy after 6am, but great for views of cable railway:-) Rooms overlooking courtyard noisy if overnight roadworks by river...

I booked a single room for a friend, it has everything one needs to have a brief stay in Zürich. We spent most of the time outside exploring the city, and the location is very convenient for that. Perfect for a budget-traveller!

Room Tip: It's an old building with slanted floors, it might bother some people.

Stayed here for two nights in MAY 2016. The hotel is at convenient location, close to zurich main railway station. But it is old dated hotel, basic facilities. We found rooms to be noisy even at higher floors as hotel is right at the tram stop and signal junction. Did not try breakfast/restaurant. It was warm when we stayed and fan provided was not sufficient. Considering the price we paid it was value for money.

Bad service, dirty rooms, awful breakfast.
The place is well located but I wouldn't recommend it.
First of all if you're disabled or have a big luggage it would be impossible for you to get into the hotel cause it has like 20 steps at the entrance.
Wifi doesn't work well and the staff can be rude.
