Zurich Boutique Hotel
A cozy and stylish boutique hotel in a good location. Within walking distance of the train station, lake, Bahngoffatrasse, and old town. Very well designed hotel with attention to details in a historic like building. The room was a little small but cozy and stylish. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I'd stay here again.

Wonderful Stay!
This hotel was great! Our room was super cute. We had a view of the river, and we even slept one night with the window open and there were no noise problems. We loved eating breakfast at the bar/restaurant that was attached. Staff at the front desk was really great too!

Cute boutique hotel. Quite a bit of street noise. Room was small but well appointed.

Excellent choice in central Zürich
Well appointed room and comfortable bed. The street below is quite busy so sleeping with the window open was not an option, but the ventilation was good enough that it wasn't a problem. High quality bathroom amenities from Kiels. We had an early start in the morning, so we didn't get to sample the breakfast. I would stay there again.

Good 6.0
Specious nice room but outdated hotel
The room was spacious but the furniture simple. The hotel is old and needs renovation. Great view from the library balcony. I wanted to drink coffee in the morning in the library but they started to clean by using loud machines. I think cleaning times should be planned better.
Viorica, ie3 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
We liked the room, it was a good size, very clean. The bathroom was roomy with some space to put our toilletery, I.e make-up bag, tooth paste, etc. Unfortunately there was a problem with the wifi in the evening and it wasn’t fixed before we checked out the next morning. This was very inconvenient because getting wifi in Zurich was challenging.
