The room was extremly small. The only thing good about the experience was that the view was great and it was close to downtown. There were stains all over the floor. The towel they provided was already dirty. There are only two showers for the whole building to share, and on one of them, the shower nozzle wasn't attached to the wall. The drain on the good shower wasn't draining well and I actually had to pull out a large amount of hair just to get the water to drain a little. The room was extremely hot which made it impossible to sleep without the window open, that means having to hear the noise from the street below and also let all the bugs in. They could at least have a small fan in the room. The room smells like smoke. It's obvious they don't enforce the no smoking in the rooms rule. While I was out front, I actually saw a women in the room next to mine sitting by her window smoking. The guy at the front desk told me they provided breakfast in the morning, but when I went to eat something, the woman told me I had to pay for it. (I believe either 15 or 20 Franc's.) The price for the room was low and I know you get what you pay for, but I at least expect a minimum level of cleaniness and comfort. I was considering staying Zurich for an extra night when I got there, but after staying here, I decided to go to Lucerne early. I would not recommended this place to anyone unless you are very desperate, and then only for one night.
