    Friendly staff, simple room

    My stay was quiet and comfortable, with help from an accommodating staff. The room came as advertised—simple and with basic necessities for a short stay. There is a great restaurant on the ground level, which is a plus.

    The worst place in Zurich !

    Never again, with such booking type, you call the place and get reply for a restaurant table. There is no reception for checking-in nor for checking-out. What a mess ! The worst so called hotel you may have in this site. I do not understand how this can fit in your hôtel.com site !

  • 4.0.Fair

    Location of the property is decent but the bathroom was in terrible condition, the shower head was badly damaged and there was a strong smell of mold in the bathroom. The checkin process was quite complicated as there is no official front desk, the property is managed by the restaurant staff in the lobby which were not all up to speed on the checkin/check out process. Overall not a great experience.

    Ich werde diese Hotel nie mehr besuchen

    Es tut mir leid diese Nachricht mit zu teilen. Ich habe das gewünschte Zimmer nicht bekommen, sondern eine ganz andres, kleine beten, kleine Zimmer das war einen Albtraum. Parkplätze sind nur drei Plätze zu Verfügung und die waren alle besetzt, ich musste irgendwo auf die Strassen Rand parkieren Zahlung Pflicht. ich habe nur eine Nacht in diese Zimmer verbracht und bin ich zurück nachhause gegangen. Ich werde diese Hotel nie mehr besuchen das ist erste und letzte mal.

    Horrible ! A éviter

    Hôtel horrible ... plus jamais ! Une chambre qui ne correspondais pas au photo , un manque de propreté total avec des restes de cheveux et de poile partout dans la chambre . Dès puces de lit... un véritable désastre . Hotel.com ne devrait pas proposé ce genre de prestation !

    이메일 주소 올리는게 힘드냐

    일요일 체크인인데 도착 까지 핀 넘버 못 받아서 들어가지 못함. 그 전에 메일 보내고 싶었으나 이메일 주소 찾을 수 없었음. 전화도 응답기로 넘어가서 연락할 방법이 없음. 다른 호텔에서 묵고 다음날 간신히 들어감

    Bon rapport qualité prix pour Zurich.

    Studio 303 tout en haut à l'angle du bâtiment (pas d'ascenseur) : agréable d'avoir 2 fenêtres ! Grandeur correcte pour 2 personnes, idéale en solo car salle de bains mini. Je séjourne une petite semaine chaque année depuis plusieurs années à California House et suis satisfaite. Bien isolé si les fenêtres sont fermées ; un parc en face et un restaurant italien au rez-de-chaussée. Tram 3 et 8 à 3 minutes. Petite déception cette année : ni casserole ni bouilloire ni micro-ondes pour faire chauffer l'eau du thé : dans la poêle... pas top ! (même le restaurant n'a pu me dépanner).
