Great hotel in a good location. Close to Zurich HB train station. The hotel has a great bar and the bar staff are very friendly. The hotel itself has no staff present so checkin is a bit complicated. Bar staff help out.

Give this place a miss
No information about how to check in, in spite of it being self-check in. This was complicated by my booking not being in the hotels system. Thankfully wait staff for the bar told me we could get desk assistance at a hotel 100 metres away. None of this was outlined in the check in details for the booking. Cups/glasses were not replaced when used T bags not replenished Towels not always replenished and dirty wash cloth left in the shower Hair dryer didn’t work. When took this to staff on the desk, I was told the plug wasn’t suitable for local sockets and that it looked in bad repair, asking if it was my dryer. The irony is, that this is what I was trying to tell the desk clerk. When I made the point that I had received no apology for this, the desk clerk replied in a very sarcastic way “I am so sorry”. He obviously wasn’t. No reception/assistance on site so we had to go to another hotel over the street for any help even though it was pouring down one time All this would have been bearable if the staff on reception had been professional and helpful - one young woman was very helpful however two men who worked at reception at the (apparently linked) hotel across the street were rude and unhelpful when we asked for assistance (see above). I have never given a review but feel so strongly about this experience that I feel I need to warn others it was an awful hotel and I definitely would not recommend it.
