    The staff was rude over email prior to visit. They even went so far to say that we should choose another hotel when we visit Zurich.

    Minimal Beauty

    Placid was amazingly beautiful. I loved the floor to ceiling windows, the minimal decor, and hippish furnishing. Only draw back are the showers. It's just a curtain separating the rest of the bathroom and the water gets everywhere. They need to put in glass doors/wall. Staff was great for the most part. Only one day when both female receptionists never acknowledged us as we walked in. We were the only ones entering. Breakfast great too. I would definitely return - if the bathrooms get remodeled.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I liked the location and the cleanliness. I didn't like the fact that there was no real wall in the bathroom, so you have no privacy. Also the room was too hot and there wasn't a real way to control the temperature. We opened the window, but it was hard to figure out how to keep it open just a little enough to let in fresh air without letting it be too cold.

    The place was nice and clean. Not w place to stay for a long period of time though. Any more than a few days you will want a new place with at least a mini fridge. Again great place to say for a weekend but not much longer.
