      • Group of friends

        The location is good, the room was clean.

        The noise from the nightclub below kept us awake until 6:00 a.m. I shall never go back to that hotel again.

        • Average rating
      • Group of friends

        The room was comfortable with soft duvets and modern decor, and the cobbled old town location couldn't have been better.

        The noise from the nightclub below could be too much for some people (although earplugs are provided) and there was a smell of stale tobacco throughout the hotel.

        postion,in real Zuerich downtown but really noisy and without any parking (it is in the pedestrian-ony, car-restricted are) . Very good breakfast and proximty to night amusement

      • Single

        Although continental breakfast was included in the room rate and it is brought to your room, the sellection and amount was poor, one croissant, two rolls, only cheese and butter and almost one cup of coffee.For the very high price of the room I think it was not enough of a selection.

        Great location. The noise from the clubs downstairs was not too much but you have some noise

        As usual the room was not what you see at the pictures.

        • Average rating
      • Single

        It was very centrally located and inexpensive

        The music was too loud from the club.....but then the fact that the club is part of the hotel is also an added bonus.....just made it hard to sleep.

      • Older travelers

        Very easy to walk around the old part of Zurich. Very clean - very nice and quiet - excellent value.

        All restaurants in Switzerland are very expensive. The hotel was only 5 minutes from the Bahnhof but it showed as 10 Km from the airport = a $60 cab ride versus a 6.40 train ride. This should have been noted in the the information.

        Very friendly atmosphere, excellent breakfast.

        There is indeed a very loud club at the same building and it is open till very late. However hotel provides a set of ear plug for every guest which kind of makes up for it.

        Friendly & helpful staff upon arrival, followed by a great breakfast in the morning.

        Too noisy from the discotheque below.

        • Average rating
      • Single

        Location was in heart of the eclectic part of Zurich

        All information mentions "maybe" noise as there are clubs in the hotel, when in fact it is more like your bed is in the middle of a disco until 6 am. No sleep possible.
