Very Good28 Reviews
0.38km from Department of HematologyIf you need a place to park your bags and sleep when you are visiting Zurich, this is a good hotel to stay at. It is very close to the train station. I always take the reviews that say it is within walking distance with a grain of salt, because what someone else can easily walk, and what my husband and I who are both seniors can walk, tends to be different. But we very easily walked all four days that we were there back and forth between the hotel and the train station. And enjoyed the walk because we crossed the river each time, which was so scenic, and it gave us a little bit of time to stretch our legs after sitting on buses and trains each day. The hotel is extremely basic. But it was very clean and the beds were ok. My husband is 6'6" and he had a bit of a problem. He either hit his head on the headboard or his feet on the footboard. But most people aren't going to have that problem. If you need a Swiss electric adapter - who knew it is not the same as the German adapter that we had - they had them at the front desk and will let you borrow them with a $20 deposit (or Francs). If you need a blowdryer, which we did not, I believe you can also get that at the front desk. We bought CocaCola and asked for glasses at the front desk and were able to get them but they are not going to be in your room. The pillows in our room were horrible. That was really my only complaint. Sean was there at the front desk when we checked in over the weekend and he was so very helpful and nice. We never interacted with any other staff. Each day we left early and came back late and never really needed anything else. The bathroom has a wonderful retro vibe to it with peacocks and flowers on the times. Again, basic, but very clean. We were there the last week of October and the weather was cool. So we were comfortable without air conditioning. We opened our windows each evening when we got back to the room and let the cool air in. There was no way we could have slept with them open though. The street noise was awful. But as soon as we shut the windows and pulled the curtains closed, it was fine. We no longer heard the noise. I could not sleep there had it been any warmer though - with no air conditioning and the street noise if the windows were open, it would have been very uncomfortable.
