                DisappointedThe location is quite good, however the room size is terribly small. I stayed with my wife and two kids, but they gave us a small double bed. The room size was too small to sleep on floor as well. The customer service was very poor. Whenever I asked something, the answer was straight forward, not so friendly as I got in hotels in Geneva and other countries of Europe.

                Only hotel ever to charge for the use of plates and forks in the roomFriendly, helpful staff, close to shops, restaurants and tram stops. Clean rooms, very basic. Overall I would have said good value for money, HOWEVER. I was shocked to be told there was a 5 Swiss Franc charge for the use of cutlery and crockery in the room. Apparently it’s a new hotel policy caused by theft and breakages by previous guests. I could understand a deposit being charged, but to charge guests effectively penalises them for others behaviour. I’ve never come across this in any hotel I’ve stayed at, and was just stunned. My mum and I had bought some cakes we wanted to have in our room, and asked for plates and forks. This was when we were told about the fee. The staff seemed embarrassed, but had to follow their policy. So much for hospitality. I would not choose to give my money to such a hotel again.

                Location is perfect, so price is kinda ok. But the hotel is old and need really, really renovation. Good: 24h reception and friendly staff. Bad: badly soundproofed rooms!

                Great location, the tram station is just outside but get ready to say goodbye to a good night's rest. 😫 The busy street is just right next to the hotel and the hotel walls are really thin.

                We stayed at this hotel for one night. The good location of this hotel helped us to go to famous attractions in the city easily. Moreover, there is tram which can be reached bout 1 minute walking from the hotel. Additionally, there is no need to worry if you want to stay late in town because the environment around the hotel is safe. In conclusion, this hotel is suitable for travelers who enjoy city life.

                this hotel is only six stops away from the train station on tram, the location is central but the room is very quiet. The furnishings were simple but clean and the staff was really nice and friendly, always willing to help. Considering the low price in exorbitant Zurich, this is a great place to stay

                Stayed 1 night in December 2018

                No necessities”

                The room quite small, there's no mini fridge, no aircon, there's heater, TV no english channel, wifi is chargeable. Just good enough to stay for a night no longer than that. Location wise is okay. Walkable to restaurant, supermarket just opposite, 15-20mins walk to main train station. there's bus/tram nearby.

                The size of the room is comparatively bigger than other hotels in this category. The rooms were clean. The staff at the hotel was indeed very helpful and courteous. The location of the hotel is an advantage and has a supermarket & food joints in close proximity. Its easy to reach from Airport with just one change in mode of transport. Easy to access the prominent locations by way of trams/metro.

                Nearby to public transport, groceries, shops. The only downside is the carpeting in the room looks dirty and the room is dull

                The hotel room was very small. The bunkbed access over the bed not easy for aged people. Cramped space. Not a value for your money. Average motel in North America are better in space and better in prices .Rather disappointing cramped space
