This is a wonderful, well-kept hotel in Old Town, a short walk (around 10 minutes) from the train station. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff was outstanding, going out of their way to make one feel welcome. And the breakfast provided was better than I anticipated with a nice selection of all things breakfast -- eggs, bacon, ham, cereals, fruits, pastries to mention a few. The city is easy to navigate by foot, and there are picture-post card photo opportunities left and right, the moment you step out the door.

We only stayed in Zurich for one night. This hotel is in a convenient location, close to major sites, restaurants and the airport. We have free minibar, which is a good surprise. Breakfast is good. I asked for a room facing the courtyard and it was quite, which is a requirement for me as I am a light sleeper. There is free parking but you need to reserve ahead of time as the parking space is limited.

Wonderful stay! We were only here for one night as we had an overnight layover in Zurich. This hotel was perfectly located, clean, and comfortable. I would love to get back to Zurich to explore a bit more, and I would definitely consider this hotel again.
