Quick stay in beautiful Zurich
Posted Jul 2, 2015
This hotel is easy to get to from the airport. Quick trip on the train for 2 people is only $15, took 25 minutes, and tram stops right out front. Location is about 15-20 minute walk from both the main train station and old town Zurich. If you don't want to walk a 24 hr team pass is $8 and can be used on any of the city's trams.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. They had good recommendations on restaurants and were even took the time to draw on a map where we should go.
One issue we had was with the AC system. After spending all day on our tour we came back to our room at 10:30pm and the AC system would not blow cold air. After bringing the issue up the next morning we found out that the AC system shuts down at night and comes back on the following day. This was an issue for us as it was quite warm while we were in Zurich and the room didn't cool down over night.
Overall, this didn't change our opinion of the hotel but would be something to consider in the future.
Tip: Bottled water on the street or in a restaurant is between $4-$5. Bring a good water bottle from home, fill up at any of the continuously running, and free, fountains and you'll never have to buy any water. We loved filling up our water bottles at the free fountains throughout the city.
