    The location is very central and the rooms are very clean

    Internet access is expensive and technically inconvenient

    Very good

    Location is really good. A short walk from main railway station. Nice restaurants and cafes nearby. Room is silent, if you keep window shut. The room was small, but very clean. Bed sheets were lovely, crispy linen with the smell of fresh air.

    Price is very high compared with the standard hotel offers. There is no a/c so room was really really hot = if you kept window shut, it was too hot, but silent. If you opened the window, it was cooler, but lot of noise coming from the street. Room was sold as "superior" - did not see any superior in the room, which was very simple and basic.

    Location was very convenient, less than 10 minutes walk from the central station

    Room was very basic, but clean. No in-room facilities. Central Zurich is very expensive, but even so this seemed to be not good value. Given the good rail links to the centre, on my next visit I will stay slightly out of the centre, where room prices are more reasonable.

    The free internet, friendly satff and closeness to the stattion and city.

    Felt it was only a one star. No room airconditioning, no fridge, no clock and no tea making facilities

    Convenient location. Just 5 minutes to Zurich central station. Short walking distance to city centre, shops and restaurants

    Noisy street outside. Surrounded by sexshops and "clubs", with "lightly clothed women" standing just 20m by the hotel entrance. However we never felt unsafe or threatened. No air conditioning, and it is not "cool" to open the window to a very noisy street at night. Breakfast should be better, beds are not too comfortable and some of the staff could be more welcoming.

    Good

    Close to everything in Zurich - room was clean

    Very poor insulation: we could hear people walking above our heads, doors shutting down as if it was in our room and also noise from the outide....not really calm or quiet

    Fabulous

    This is one of the best values for money in Zurich, a very expensive city.Breakfast was excellent. Worth noting that it's located on the edge of the red light district and there are usually sex trade workers on the corner quite early in the evening. Being as Switzerland, however, everything is very polite.

    Fabulous

    the location is very nice, very easy to any where in down town.

    It is better to take a taxi to hotel,because difficult to bring the loggage up to hotel even they said only ten minutes far away with railway station in map. Most local people didn't know this hotel.I spend 0.5 hour to find it with 4 local people's helps from station.

    The only good comment to make about the hotel was its proximity to the shops, river, and nice restaurants. Safe in your room for valuables .

    Warning.... Red light district directly opposite the hotel, the women started work at 5pm each night and we were travelling with a young teenage girl ! The staff at the hotel lied when she said they don't have a problem with this as it happened every night of our 4 night stay ! very noisy street at front & side of hotel & I had a room at the back of the hotel. Several night clubs & sex shops very close by too and this just added to the noise levels. No air conditioning which made sleeping uncomfortable, because you couldn't have the window open due to the noise which lasted into the very small hours of the morning. I found a couple of the staff rude & abrupt, apart from the elderly gentleman who registered our very late arrival on 1.5.2011 & the lady who assisted us at breakfast on the first 2 mornings after that. No WiFi in rooms. The room was meant to be a Superior double ??? - I'm glad I wasn't in a standard room as I don't think the quality could have got much worse. Very expensive room for the lack of comforts you would expect when paying for a Superior room, no tea or coffee making facilities, no fresh bottled water provided after first morning either, we had to ask for fresh water to be left & the maid still didn't do that even though she said she would ! Would not use this 'hotel' again or recommend to anyone either !

    Superb

    quiet, efficient, friendly

    Espresso machine did not dispense hot milk although it was supposed to. I am sure this would have been provided to me had I asked.

    bathroom too small; not enough toileteries, only one pillow per perso, way too expensive for what it offers but then the whole city is ridiculously expensive

    The location and price is fair and good.Breakfast is also good and acceptable.

    Shower room is not nice enough. It looks poor and equipped soap is pretty small and thin, which is not good at all.
