                          Proximity to university and quietness

                          Triumph of design over practicality: 1 very low beds which were hard to get out of. 2. timber plinth which was easy to knock your ankles on. 3.No power points at reasonable height, making it virtually impossible to use the iron. 4 virtually no storage space. 5. Uncomfortable chairs. No air conditioning or ceiling fans (not a problem on my stay but could be). Small desk. Extremely expensive for what it offered

                          The staff is really friendly - the area is near the centre but not too touristic

                          The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and clean. The location was great, less than 10 minutes walking from the old city. We had a parking place next to the hotel.

                          The bathroom was perfect, but small. The door of the bathroom did not give 100% privacy.

                          Design kind-of "minimalistic" style of the rooms - simple and modern - excellent location with tramways 3 min walking distance and 10 min from Zurich Limatt and center

                          after 11PM entrance on the first day is allowed by a phone call to the night crew. If your cell does not work in CH, you'd better be there before 11PM...

                          We were upgraded and received one of their more deluxe rooms which was a lovely surprise. However, we are glad we had not originally booked this room as it was not worth the 355 CHF price tag! Unfortunately, the room was not particularly clean (hairs on the floor of the bedroom, bathroom and bedside table) but otherwise our one night stay was a comfortable and pleasant one.

                          There is no room service on sundays and the hotel restaurant is shut.... rooms dont have air conditioning or fan.. was really hot and stuffy... would be a comfortable place to stay in winters..

                          The hotel is very clean and very well located near the Schauspielhaus. The room was nicely furnished and was very comfortable. The desk clerks were very helpful in answering our questions (in excellent English), particularly the one on duty on the morning of Oct. 19. Your hotel was recommended to us by an actor at the Schauspielhaus and we would be happy to recommend it to anybody.

                          Staff. Price for room.

                          Floor of room was dirty and bathroom wasn't cleaned 2nd day as well as it could have been. Breakfast was so-so.

                          Pleasant street. Many nice customers linked to the near-by universities and hospital, no arrogant business people. Tram station close, tram frequency excellent, and Central train station only 5 minutes away. High room ceilings.

                          The renovation of the hotel was made on the cheap, not on first class Swiss standards. Noise from upper floors - steps etc - disturbing for light sleepers. Rooms small. Room rate relatively high. Even in expensive Zurich there are better bargains. Restaurant prices too high. Bar lounge prices O.K.

                          The hotel is well located in the well-treed, well-kept residential/university area just up the hill from the old town. We could walk everywhere we needed to be in Zurich. The room had a nice view, was clean and attractive, if a little plain, and quite comfortable. Breakfast was a light, but included all the essentials of a fine continental buffet. Most important, the staff were very friendly and helpful at check-in and whenever we saw them in our two-day stay. The woman checking us out volunteered friendly advice about how best to get to the airport, which made our departure from Zurich a breeze.

                          The only problem we can report is that on our first night we were uncomfortable because of cigarette smoke. It seemed to be coming from the room or rooms below and up through our windows. We didn't report the problem, but probably should have, because the hotel is a non-smoking facility. There was no smoke on the second night.

                          The staff are friendly, and the location is perfect as it is tucked away in a quieter yet central area to avoid the crowded and noisy tourist hotels of downtown Zurich.

                          A bit pricey, and we seem not to have received the exact room as in the pictures advertised on the web site. But room was still good.

                          6.6

                          The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the location is within walking distance of the old town, and close to two tram stations. The rooms are modern. The hotel's bar is cozy and nice.

                          The bathroom door cannot be closed fully and does not provide enough privacy, which can be a problem depending on who you are travelling with. There are not enough places to hang the towels. The Internet connection was terrible, often it was impossible to connnect.
