no service and dodgy area
We are a family of 4 staying 3 nights, it didnt met our expectations, price was lower than Zurich average, so service was accordingly. - check in: we got the keys easily from the safe box as reception time is limited. we never get the chance to see them. You get an extra key for the safe and the wifi is good - the room was smaller than expected and the sofabed was not made into a bed, We had to make it ourselves - the toilet was small but clean, although the soap holder was falling a little water was running out of the shower. - we didnt cook at all but when making our final review of the room we opened the dishwasher to find some dirty cups from prior guests, this was disgusting. - floor below the bed was super dirty as well, some toy fell down and we had to dig into it . - tv was not working at all , we called to request fixing and they said they will call me back but they never did and tv never worked - we stayed here during summer so room was quite hot, there were some fans on the floor to compensate but it was very noisy - area is dodgy, on our way to central station we saw a couple of guys getting high, police arresting a guy for drugs and several hookers looking for customers, it raised a lot of questions on my 6 year old - we put the “clean my room “ tag each day but aside from taking out the trash nothing was done So if you want a room just to sleepover this is a good choice, do not expect more

Fine Room with Friendly Staff
The hotel receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The room was nice. Hotel location is a bit out of the way from the main attractions, but is close to a tram. The train station is an 18-minute walk and Old Town is about a 25 minute walk. Yhe biggest thing you should know before booking is that check-in is only until 6PM. The staff is not on-site after this time of you have a afternoon/evening arrival.

Clean Spacious Aparthotel
Friendly management, clean building, close to 17 & 4 trams, fun yet quiet neighborhood. Feel like a visitor and not a tourist :)

Convenient and great
It's a small but convenient and clean. A small kitchen with a coffee machine and an electric kettle. Coffee sachets are provided, sugar and cream. A fridge and an electric oven, but no microwave.
Gloria, us2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
We had a ground floor room with no AC. Because it was in ground floor, we had to sleep with windows locked for security. Even though they give us a fan, it was very hot and uncomfortable. Also, we could hear sound very well from steps, stairs, and corridor. Front door had no lock, other than key-lock from inside. This is dangerous if there is fire (or emergency), we can't get out of room quickly. We will need to find key in the dark and unlocked door to evacuate. It amazes me that this is acceptable building code in Switzerland. Not in US.

Central location with washing facilities
Place is about 1 km walking from central train station. There is lots of testaurants around, as well as different groceries stores. Washing machines and dryers in the basement is a big benefit.

Poor 2.0
The rooms shown on your web site doesn't reflect what you are presented with on arrival! The best way of describing them were a very old tired dorm with just enough room for two small single beds pushed on the walls thus enabling you to just about move around, but only one at a time!
