Wedding in Zurich
Hotel overall was very nice. Was very clean and quiet. Wish I could control the temperature in my room as it was warm. Bed was a little too soft and pillows way too soft. The staff was friendly and helpful. Liked the small bar on first floor to get together for a drink at the end of the evening.

Two week stay -- will come again
The hotel is in the Old Town, so if you come from the US, difficulty of finding it, costly rooms and parking (10 min walk away), smallish rooms, some without aircons, street noise during some nights may damage your first impression. My review would probably be worse if we only stayed for 4 nights as was originally planned. But it happened that on the night before check-out my wife got medical emergency and was admitted to the University hospital for 10 days. This is when I had to do real research and thinking. However motivated I was to save money, I couldn't find anything substantially cheaper without scaling down to much-much lower life quality. This is when the management of the hotel really helped me. After I explained my situation, I was immediately offered a corporate rate. At every opportunity every member of the small staff was asking if I need anything and was helping us in every possible way. Extra blanket and three extra pillows are just among many other nice small things. The hotel helped us to make it through the unfortunate circumstances with as little troubles as was only possible. In addition, the two-week stay really allowed us to explore and to enjoy the immediate neighborhood, full of history, culture, and taste. If I had to choose again, my selection of the hotel could not be better.
