Score from 631 reviews Good
Room was clean, location was easy to get to public transportation. WC and bath/shower room were very clean at all times, even though we shared it with other people. Reception staff was very helpful. A small bar at the Otter was a good place to people watch. Close to Lake Zurich.
inexpensive for Zurich. breakfast included.
shared toilet (like a hostel), but I had a shower in my room.
Check in was really easy, and we got a great room with lots of character and very spacious (Japan room). The place was in a great location in the old part of the city. Highly recommended
Was a bit noisy at night with the bar downstairs, but nothing too bad
Excellent location, set in charming old streets, and only a nice little walk from the busier parts of the downtown core. The walk to the downtown core though, is EXTREMELY nice!!!
Room lacked ventilation and was a little hot. (we realized in the morning it was possible to open the windows, which we hadn't noticed in the evening behind the curtains. Shared shower would be better with a door instead of a shower curtain.
Absolutely superb location, good size bedrooms with storage for clothing, clean facilities
Location Breakfast Staff Wifi Bar
Noise from other rooms and smacking doors after midnight.
The decor and facilities were basic. Decoratively it reminded me of hippy hotels of the 60s which may have a retro chic appeal to some but not I am afraid to me. There are better hotels in the vicinity which are not much more expensive.
- Localisation in the center of old town in Zurich - Friendly staff - Breakfast included in the price - Good price to quality ratio - Small, but clean rooms
- No parking place, I was forced to bring bikes to the room - Bathroom and shower not in the room
Breakfast included, good location
Non ensuite but didn't really matter
The hotel is very well located, in the heart of Zurich old city, walking distance to everything.. I also liked the little bar where breakfast is served and the friendly environment that staff creates.
The room was nice, clean (although TV and wifi didn't work).
The shared washrooms were a bit filthy, considering the price.
Clean, well located, good breakfast. Friendly staff, nice sized rooms. Shared bathrooms were clean and of a good size.
No ac meant it was quite hot in our room, but not unbearable.
Noisy pub downstairs, bring earplugs. The shared toilet too cramped and difficult to get into. No soap in shower. The small fridge was not cold at all, due to a huge lump of ice formed on the cooling element. No air conditioning. The photos look much better than in reality. Breakfast starting too late (8:00), missed it. Not good value for money, unless you really like the location, which we didn't.
The Spanish lady welcoming us on the first day was extremely kind and friendly. Rooms were clean and very quiet, when closed the window was isolating the external noise very well. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast is served in the pub at the ground floor which in the morning is reserved for the guests, with a nice view on the old street in the center. This was very cosy and pleasant.
Rooms are themed and bright and cheerful. Breakfast is cold but lots of choice and hard boiled eggs.
Location great. Walking Distance everywhere.
Price was quite high...
Central and convenient location. Helpful and friendly staff. Funky and colourful rooms which are all different - not your average bulk hotel room. Our room had lots of cupboards for clothing.
Shared toilets & bathrooms may not suit everyone's liking. We have no complaints on the cleanliness though.
Member of staff
The hotel was located in a great area with a really cool bar on the street level- it's within walking distance from shopping, restaurants, and other attractions and very close to the train station as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Spacious room, cleanliness and courteous staff. Excellent location.
Not working T.V and no land line Telephone.
Quirky and convenient
The beds were divine and comfortable, and breakfast very tasty and satisfying. Most importantly, the location was superb. Minutes from trains, trams, the lake, the theatre district and the main centre. Would stay again solely based on location.
The room was very hot, even with the heat off. We missed out on breakfast as we were not informed on our last day, which was a public holiday, that breakfast would be an hour and a half late. Managed however as a result to get a discount on the final room bill. Rooms not soundproof.
The decor was very interesting. If you select a room on the top floor each room has a theme. Ours was "japan" and the room is decorated accordingly. Nice little trendy bar below. Breakfast is served there. Good location in a trendy part of Zurich. Can be a tad noisy on a weekend night. We were there on a Saturday night.
The fact that you have to go out of your room for the toilet and shower. Both rooms are separate and private with a door and it is shared by 2 other rooms on each floor.
