Great view from the room!
Everithing was great, except the recepcionist when I check in. Not helpfu at all, and not clear expleain about the parking. On the morning the other recepcionist did everithing great.

Minimal Beauty
Placid was amazingly beautiful. I loved the floor to ceiling windows, the minimal decor, and hippish furnishing. Only draw back are the showers. It's just a curtain separating the rest of the bathroom and the water gets everywhere. They need to put in glass doors/wall. Staff was great for the most part. Only one day when both female receptionists never acknowledged us as we walked in. We were the only ones entering. Breakfast great too. I would definitely return - if the bathrooms get remodeled.

Laundry ripoff
The stay was ok. When I dropped a bag of laundry off at the hotel front desk they returned it with a 200 Chf bill. The front desk employees just shrugged and said that’s how much it cost. Never staying with them again

Great But Not Fantastic...
Please note: this hotel is primarily a corporate-business hotel. With that, the location in/near downtown Zurich was excellent. Front desk staff were wonderful. Food was, overall, very good, but was way over-priced. (But then again, this is the case all over Switzerland.). Room was okay. They actually gave us two connected rooms, which was a pleasant surprise. Bathroom facilities were just okay as there was little in the way of expected extras like toiletries to include hand soaps (no facial soap) and other amenities. When and if I ever come come to Zurich again, I will definitely consider staying at this hotel, but will first look at other ones first.
Cortney, us3 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Hotel was amazing in every way except the rooms on the 11th floor were way too hot and the air conditioning even on the lowest appeared to only provide hot air.

Our stay in Zurich
Really nicely done hotel. We had a nice room but the issue was two of our lights weren’t working and the sink plug got stuck on our second day. The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed using the hotel gym. The place itself is out of the way but the hotel has free bike rental which is nice.
Leah, au3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Very nice people but not a very warm environment. The rooms were all concrete and had the shower in the room separated by a clear glass partition. It was very odd. It was in an industrial area, I kind of felt like I was staying in a storage unit.
