              Coffee and tea in rooms would have been nice. A bit expensive, but then again, Zurich is a pricey place.

              I liked the boutique feel of the hotel, the service and the excellent quality of the food.

              I think you should be warned about the bells ringing throughout the night. The double glazing is wonderful but not totally sound proof. You couldn't keep your window open if you wanted.

              A beautiful and elegant hotel.

              I'm a vegetarian and need to make tea and coffee in the room. For the price I paid, I thought that this would be available in the room, but no. Although it has a good view of the water, but the day I arrived, the water had a foul odor.
