Hotel St. Josef
Great stay overall”
Junior suite is great for families. Centrally located near main train station, tram lines and old town. Hotel even lent us free zoo passes.
A good stay but a bad experience with staff”
The hotel is not bad; the location is acceptable, around 15 mins walk from Zurich Central station. The room is clean and the breakfast is good (except no hot food). The room is quite hot at night, luckily the room has a standalone cooling machine, which after setup the temperature is fine. Unfortunately we have left a box of glasses in the room when we leave and request the hotel to help send to a Munich hotel which I will stay later. The hotel is helpful and agreed to send it to Munich for me. I have stated clearly that when I will arrive Munich and when I will leave. St Josef Hotel staff said the box is sent on 17 Jun while at my last date of stay in Munich is 22 Jun, which I still not receive it and finally I didn't get it. The hotel reply it is not possible to trace the parcel after sent and also I was being charged CHF13 (I agreed it is a reasonable price) but I am not being notified of the amount before St Josef send the box. This is an unpleasant experience.
Very pleasant stay”
Location is near to Zurich main train station. Staff is friendly and helpful especially Susanne gave us very good introduction and services. Other staff are very nice too. Breakfast at restaurant is nice too with good view. I'd love to go back again.
Good Hotel but not recommended.”
What's Good - nice property. helpful staff. good room. central area. What's Not Good - a) Rooms are without Aircon. Now with Zurich sizzling in 36 degrees, it had got impossible to be in room by noon with only a fan in room. b) Walking to the hotel from train station can take a toll, considering the massive construction that goes around central. If you are new to Zurich, be prepared to lose your way. So, I have mixed feelings. I like the hotel but will not recommend it (unless you are going in winters and driving). It is the value-for-money which sort of let me down.
The hotel room was huge in a good location. ”
It is as good as you can get in Zurich for the price. Everything is expensive in Zurich. I stayed in the Widder Hotel before and it costs 5 times the price with of course, better room and location. I will recommend this hotel for anyone that is on budget and want to be in a central location with huge room.
Clean comfortable room”
It needs some time to locate the hotel but it's not too far from the train station. The staff were helpful and the room is spacious with good comfortability. Breakfast is good too.
Comfortable and cozy stay in Zurich”
Great experience. Well taken care of by the staffs.
Nice location and rooms but no AC (extremely warm)”
We stayed one extremely warm summer day. The check-in area was under refurbishment but we were greeted by friendly staff. The rod was newly refurbished but the access was terrible. First a elevator to the 3:rd floor, then down a staircase and up again. Very difficult with much luggage. The room was a converted attic with low ceiling height in some places. There was no AC and the room was extremely warm during warm summer days. There was fans available to cool down little. The breakfast was ok but not more. The wifi worked just fine the whole time. We arrived by car and there was both public and hotel parking. If you are going to stay at this hotel do it during the cold periods and not the rooms in top.
Friendly helpful staff. Good value.”
An early arrival saw us get to St. Josef at 8am. We were expecting to drop our bags then leave. However, we were able to have complementary tea and coffee while we waited for a room to be prepared. We were in by 9am. That was a bonus. St Josef is in easy walking distance to the Altsadt area and right next to a path leading to the university that gives a great overview of the city. It is an easy walk to the train station. Great value for money.
It was ok ”
Conveniently located near the main train station (which is essentially the departure point for the bus day tours). Backs-up against the university but this didn't seem to cause any problems (during summer stay). Restaurants of all types and prices are in walking distance, as Zurich is a pretty small city.
Great location and big clean rooms”
the hotel is about 10 minute walk away from the train station. you can roll your luggage along the road all the way. the hotel is next to zurich university so there are many small shops and restaurants across the road, in the smaller lanes, so you will be able to get food, coffee, etc. rooms are well kept, very clean, excellent condition all round. i stayed on the first floor (ie one floor above ground floor) and didn't notice much traffic noise (surprisingly); the windows were a good fit.
Great hotel, great location and friendly service”
comfortable hotel and the staff go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. would stay again. easy walk to the train station from hotel even with baggage. co-op supermarket close by with self service for easy/cheap lunches, dinner etc
Looking for good breakfast and convenient location”
Location close to the train station was really good - within walking distance if with backpacks. Staff was very helpful with everything. Although we arrived in the morning, the room was ready by noon. Breakfast was great! Rooms include a refrigerator which is really convenient. Although we stayed on the first floor the room was quiet. All rooms were just renovated, clean, no odors. Right next to the hotel are stairs which lead to the University where you can have coffee with a really nice view of the town. I can really recommend this hotel.
ideal place for ETH visits”
St. josef is very close to ETH and makes the visits to the university very easy. The room is spacious and clean. Breakfast is with very good fruit selections and with sorts of breads and other things. All in all, it is a comfortable place to stay.
