    The hotel is at a busy intersection and the trams run late and start early. The rooms are small and the ceilings are low. The hotel does not have air conditioning which was unfortunate since it was very warm in Zurich when we were there. It is obvious that the rooms were an afterthought to the restaurant downstairs.

    Very good

    Convenient, hospitable and good cafe and bar

    Would have been much more convenient if there was a tea kettle in the room. Especially breakfast is not included in the fare

    Very good

    The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is good. It is very convienent to have such a good restaurant in the hotel.

    Our room was very small. We asked for a quiet room but got a room above the outdoor restaurant. With no ac and warm weather we had to open the window with too much noice from the restaurant and the tram as a result. When you book, ask for a room as high up as possible.

    Superb

    Excellent taste in all part of the hotel: bar, restaurant and rooms. Feel at home very quickly. Nice staff. Wish we had more time to enjoy the bar in the evening.

    Parking is possible on weekend in the nearby street but could be a problem during the week. but there is not much negative thing to say about this hotel

    Very good

    The hotel room and bathroom are very clean. Small double room is real small yet still enough for a couple.

    Couldn't use water in shower and basin at the same time! Quite dangerous --- the water in shower turns boiling in a split second once turn on the cold water in basin.

    Good

    The hotel location is excellent; it's only a few minutes walk to the main street Bahnhofstrasse. The room was very clean and had an impressive design.

    I was very surprised when I found out that the room did not have some basic amenities like a box of tissues and a soap bar. I was even more surprised when housekeeping told me they don't have any, so I had to go out and buy some.

    Superb

    The hotel was in a great location, very safe and a good value in Zurich.

    The air conditioning did not work very well, which made it quite humid at night in June.

    Compact, central, very helpful staff, excellend bar and restaurant combined.

    The tram passing close to the hotel causes a bit of a rumbling noise - but one does get used to it easily!
