We will stay again because all the rare combination of a silent room in a very vivid area!!

We liked the central location in a pedestrian vivid street in combination with the very quiet room!! Also the free coffee and fruits in the reception!!as well as the complimentary drinks in the fridge!!

Close to the train station and the wonderful evenings and sights throughout the surrounding area.

Arrived by train and location to station was great, simple walking distance. The location was also great for many of the sights to see as we walked through the old town areas. During the evening hours the streets came to life and we were always right there in it as we walked out the front door. Breakfast before hitting the streets was the only way to start the mornings.

Switzerland Birthday

Small boutique hotel in busy Old Town. At time of my visit they provided breakfast which was fabulous, recommend their muesli. They provided free of charge coffee, water, apples and hot spots. Helpful with directions and cab service. Highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently and enjoyed our stay very much. The staff at check in was very thorough in explaining things. We got an upgrade to a king room which was very nice so we has a little more space. Breakfast was included and it was great. The ladies in the breakfast room keep everything supplied and coffee flowing. There was always coffee, water and fruit near the front entrance which was nice. The bathroom was nicely set up and clean. The Mini bar was free of charge on the first round which is more than I have gotten anywhere else. The hotel is in the old town area so there are a lot of eating places and bars around. The only negative I can come up with is the lights in the hallway come on with a motion detector which you will get light coming in from under the door in the middle of the night, I know it's picky. We enjoyed our stay. Short walking distance to train station. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

The location is perfect

We stayed there , 3 people for 2 nights during the street parade. The location is perfect, the staff was very helpful and welcoming, and the room was comortable, easily fitting 3 adults (1 double bed, 1 extra bed). The breakfast had everything one would expect, and the products were good. I definitely would recommend staying there, especially in order to visit the center of Zurich, as everything is close by (lake, train station, Bahnhofstrasse, etc.)

Time in Zürich

Really friendly and helpful staff, very nice room with shower and a great Pizza place around the corner. Central location easy walking distance to everywhere including the ETH (mind the steps). All in all an excellent location at a (for Zürich) reasonable price.

Lovely well located hotel in central Zurich

Great location, friendly staff and excellent amenities. We had a great short visit to Zurich and this hotel helped make it better. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance to many local attractions. Also a short walk to the main Zurich train station and many local teams. Highly recommended.

Best hotel in Zurich

Excellent location, close to all downtown activities and within easy walk of the Rail station, stores and restaurants. Buffet breakfast was superb, beds comfortable and room clean. This family run hotel is well appointed with great staff especially the always helpful and knowledgeable front desk staff. Modern and convenient.

I like this place a lot

I like this place a lot. Very kind and helpful service at front desk and in breakfast room (good birchermusli). It is a simple place, it is clean, the rooms are modern, some are more quiet than others, the atmosphere is easy, without fuss. Free expresso coffee machine going all day on ground floor. Near to several small co-op food shops and restaurants, and the gorgeous Zurich river that you can swim in (i wondered if people would find me crazy if I jumped in, the water is so beautiful. I didn't jump in but people do and it's perfectly normal). As a solo traveler I don't think of staying elsewhere when I land in Zurich, and feel I've reached a refuge when I get there. Room was made available by 10 AM without a booking. Hotel was nearly full so price was high. But so it was all along that splendid Zurich river.

The location was perfect

The location was perfect and the staff really good! The breakfast was good too. The wifi in the room, not the best.

Super friendly and efficient

Super friendly and efficient, great Central location in the old town, clean, air conditioned, special mention for great breakfast - also brilliant service! Would definitely stay again.

Nick Roscoe, 8/29/22


Great hotel in the heart of Old Town Zurich. Located right on a pedestrian cobblestone street filled with restaurants, cafes and little stores. It’s approximately a 10 minute walk to the train station. Super clean room with all amenities. Good buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. Air conditioning works well. Wifi is free but it can be spotty at times. Highly recommend this cute hotel.

Very warm welcome

Very warm welcome and caring member of the hotel crew, great room, perfect location in Zurich, quiet neighborhood. Among my best experience of stay in a hotel.

Just an overall really lovely experience

Just an overall really lovely experience. Rooms are spacious, nicely furnished and really clean. Coffee machine in reception and breakfast was included. Building has character and is in the centre of the old town with everything on the doorstep. But most importantly the staff are just all very nice and extremely helpful. Hope to get back one day.

Nice place to live

Nice place to live at a good location. Friendly staff, well maintained and cleaned rooms.

Nice, central hotel with great features and staff

This is a great hotel option if you're looking to stay in Zurich. It's only a 2 minute walk (one block) to the Limmat River and about a 10-15 minute walk to the train station. The rooms are pretty small. We had 2 beds in our room and the ceiling was kind of attic-style, with a slant above the beds. There was a tv, a nice sized-closet and an okay-sized bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink. The windows face other buildings, so no great views.

The internet was pretty good! We also enjoyed the breakfast options each morning: coffee via an awesome coffee machine, eggs, meats, yogurts, breads, fruits and more.

The best part about this hotel was the staff. Super nice and helpful! They helped us mail a postcard to family in the USA. They also gave us directions on which train to take to the Zoo and a free pass we could use at the Zoo itself. Very nice! They had an awesome coffee machine in the lobby as well, so if you need coffee-this is the place to get it! They were also very quick to respond to email before our trip. I needed a pack and play for our baby and they quickly made it available.

Would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

Amazing stay after corona time

The hotel is right in the old town, perfect location. Everything is walking distance. My check in was super fast and efficient. They have free coffee in the reception area which came in handy before my check in. My room was great, clean, modern facing towards the niederdorf strasse. Left the window open during the night with no noise. They have swiss breakfast in the morning, everything is fresh. Really loved it. Thank you for the great stay...I'll be back soon
