Pros: Location and style of hotel (modern)
Location: Shopping, train station, nice restaurants
Very nice hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. The hotel is clean and the room is very good (a little on the small side but that seems to be the standard in Zurich). The location is great, only 5 mins walk to the train station and a few steps from the Bahnhof Strasse.

Pros: Courteous staff, very helpful, good breakfast and dinning. Comfortable beds Central location

Pros: modern decor
Very conveniently located in the heart of Zurich. We used the Zurich's famous streetcar to get there. It's only first stop (Rennweg) from the Zurich station and one block walk from the stop.

Good hotel close to station

Pros: very quiet but 2 minutes walk to the main street and old town of Zurich. Gardens at the back very relaxing and nice to sit out late afternoon.
Cons: nothing really
Location: Great location just off the main shopping street and about 10 mins walk from central station. Also very close to the old town.
Arrived at midnight as flight as delayed. Porter let us in and welcomed us. Said the bar was closed but he would open it up and get us a drink on the house anything we wanted. After a very protracted journey that's exactly what we needed.

Not the first time I've stayed here and will certainly be coming back. Rooms are up to date, service is good and that's all one needs. Good value (in Zurich terms) for what you pay.
