Very Good 8.0
Booked the room last minute for my layover and it was pretty good. Room was a tad bigger than the single rooms at the transit hotel. Close to the transit system as well. Overall, fairly good.

Such a lovely hotel and very kind and accommodating staff !

Excellent location - tram stop next to hotel. Just few minutes to train station at the centre of town. Very good buffet breakfast included. The downside is I cannot understand why AC is not provided, even if it only gets hot a few days. How much would a portable AC cost??Even with 3 fans going and the windows opened, the room was like an oven when the outside temperature was above 30C. The entire city is cheap on AC - none in the restaurants either.

Nice hotel, well located in a nice neighborhood close to lake, Limmatt, old town. Some of the services were affected by the covid situation and could not be properly evaluated.

The staff are very accomodating, very friendly. The room we stayed in is spacious. The location is nice, there’s a tram stop near the hotel and the old town is just a 10 minute walk.

Lovely stay in Zurich.
This is a lovely boutique hotel about a mile from the river. It was the first stop on our honeymoon, so we were tired, arriving around 10 am from a transatlantic flight. Check in wasn’t until 4 pm, but they held our luggage as we wandered the town. And got us into our room around noon. So grateful. The room was oversized, with nice amenities (great shower!). Breakfast was adequate.

Get Swiss adaptor for this hotel
Small room with small bath. All worked well. This hotel has standard Swiss outlets so you need a Swiss adaptor. This is usually not in an US purchased adaptor set. We purchased one earlier in our trip and it was put to use at this hotel. Hotel conveniently located on Tram line 3 to the Hauptbahnhof. Good breakfast with Twinnings brand teas.

Great breakfast ok room
Had the room with 2 individual twin beds. Very basic room. Issues with A/C. Location was good. Not real close to city center yet still walking distance & close to tram stop. Reception staff was great, and the breakfast and dining room were fabulous. As well as the gentleman working in the breakfast area.
