Nice, a fair walk.

Was a nice hotel. Got confused and walked to the California hotel and not the California house hotel. Which was in the other direction. Staff were friendly and hotel was clean.

Preiswert und sehr einfach

Posted Nov 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Leider direkt an der Strasse und die Zimmer sind sehr einfach eingerichtet. Bettwäsche und Handtücher sind nicht gewechselt worden am nächsten Tag. DVD Player defekt. TV sehr klein und weit entfernt vom Bett.

Günstigste Unterkunft

Posted Nov 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Wir waren als Paar zu einem Kongreßbesuch in Zürich. Die gute Lage und Erreichbarkeit (Tramhaltestelle nur 2 min entfernt) überraschten uns positiv. Die fehlende Frühstücksmöglichkeit wird durch die Kochnische, bzw. das Café in 5 Fußminuten ausgeglichen. Das Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit, ein Autoparkplatz für die Nacht im Wert von 15 € wurde zur Verfügung gestellt. Im EG befindet sich eine Pizzeria, so daß man auch abends keine langen Wege hat. Für das teure Zürich eine empfehlenswerte Adresse.

Reasonable apartments

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: Fairly modern in a close to a nice residential area.
Cons: More utensils to cook with. There was no cutting board or sink plug.
Location: Not close to town but plenty of public transport (trams). Main activities were the old town & lake (which is 15-20 minute walk).
Fairly modern apartments about 30 minute walk or quick tram ride to the old town.

Ottimo per la posizione

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: La vicinanza con le fermate del Tram The proximity of the stops of Public Transport
Cons: Aerazione automatica delle camere Automatic Ventilation of rooms
Abbiamo trascorso solo un week end di Ottobre e siamo stati abbastanza bene tranne per una cosa . La camera nel sottotetto che ci hanno dato la 305 andavo bene per tutto tranne che alla sera essendo le camere sopra un ristorante , nel bagno cieco ,con areatore automatico, alla sera si è riempito di un forte odore di mangiare proveniente suppongo dalla cucina del sottostante ristorante ... abbiamo dovuto chiudere la porta del bagno con la paura che l'odore uscisse. Se fossi stato di più avrei certamente preteso un cambio camera . We only spent a weekend in October and we were pretty good except for one thing. The room in the attic that gave us the 305 went well for all but the evening being the rooms above a restaurant in the bathroom blind with automatic aerator, the evening was filled with a strong smell of food coming from the kitchen I suppose the underlying restaurant ... we had to close the bathroom door with the fear that the smell came out. If I had been more I would certainly have demanded a change room

Location is the only reason to stay here

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Convenient location, good wireless internet connection
Cons: Hotel is definitely a fixer-upper. Need more accurate photos and information about the sizes of the rooms.
Location: Across the street from the old central park. 10 minutes from Hauptbahnhof.
Starting off with the good of it... California House is 10 minutes from Zürich Hbf (8 min by tram + 2 min walking) with trams running about every 4 min or so. Couldn't find the self check-in at all until someone told me it's in behind the actual building. Once found, it was a piece of cake to use. The room wasn't anywhere close to the size that the pictures make it seem. What also didn't help was that my room was on the top floor by the roof, meaning I had to duck down to get around half of the room. Bed was moderately comfortable. The television did not work. After the staff told me it was working fine, it still did not. The staff did take care of an issue with one of the windows at least. Wireless internet worked very well. You can hear everything going on in the other rooms from the stairwell and wallways. Thankfully, once in your room, all outside noise is blocked out. This was fully tested as the room next to me had a baby crying every single time I walked to and from my room, but never heard it at all while inside my room.

Für Zürich Preis-Leistungsverhältnis akzeptabel

Posted Oct 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Das 1. Zimmer lag im 1. Stock zur Straße wo auch die Straßenbahn fährt. Trotz geschlossener Fenster hatte man das Gefühl, die Bahn fährt direkt durchs Zimmer. Die Einrichtung war schon etwas mitgenommen (Der Duschvorhang war mit Stange heruntergefallen und ließ sich nicht mehr montieren.) und unmöglich gestellt (Zusätzlich zum "gebuchten" Queenbett gab es ein Einzelbett. Damit war das Zimmer aber so voll, dass man nicht vernünftig an den linken Teil des Schrankes kam und über das Bett klettern musste um auf den Balkon zu kommen.) Da die Rezeption nicht mehr besetzt war und auch niemand mehr telefonisch erreichbar war mussten wir wohl oder übel ausharren. Am nächsten Tag haben wir dann gegen Aufpreis ein Zimmer auf der Rückseite bekommen, was auch ansonsten wesentlich besser war.

Zurich...hotel California

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Location and price
Cons: A staff more friendly and attentive to guests.
Location: A quick tram ride into center city Zurich. The trams run every 8 minutes and there are several you can take. Easy access to airport/train station.
Location and price were great. The staff is mostly absent. There was no phone in the room which was very surprising. There was a computer/tv with advertised free internet. Our computer did not work. I asked the desk for help but they could not figure it out. I was trying to print boarding passes so they let me try 2 other computers, none of them worked. The tv only worked the first day. The shower curtain kept falling down and our door handle fell off. All in all the hotel worked for our purpose.
