Property conditions & facilities




4/10 Fair

No front desk
Upon arrival I was ushered to reception, now a World Cup Bar, with a raging event going on. I got there at 7:30pm. The Bartender gave me my card key with the room number on it. No WiFi code. No amenities except towels, tv remote, tp, a hot pot and a box of camomole tea. It was like an air b&b. According to the write up on Hotel' there was supposed to be manned front desk. Not true. Not much housekeeping, had to ask for tp and towels. No visibke manager for 2 days, then no attention to "guests". I never got use of tge wifi. For an expensive city like Zurich, this was overpriced, underserviced and doesn't qualify as a real hotel. It hasbeen mismarketed and should be removed from selections for Zurich It was not apprpropriate as a listing. There was no way to contact anyone if there was a lock out. The bar wasn't open each day/night. Miserable and this should be partially refunded. Worst property is superlative location. Zurich deserves better.

Avoid this hotel
Upon our arrival a very rude woman at the reception informed us that they had no rooms available. I said that we had a booking and her our documents and again she said that they had no room. She then said that she could arrange for us to stay at another hotel, but we refused. She then said that she could give us our money back. We took the money and left. We were amazed at the way we were treated, and therefore would urge everyone to avoid this hotel at all costs!

Right in the heart of the old town. Beautiful area right near lake Zurich. Wonderful food and shopping just steps away from the hotel.

2/10 Poor

Worst hotel I have ever been. It says hotel but it is not. No 24 hr service. Deactivated our room key card too early in the morning on the day of check out. So we could not leave the room because our key was not working. Called their number many times for 1:30 hrs but no answer at all. So we left early and looked for a luggage storage to store our luggage so that we could go around zurich before our flight in the afternoon. We wasted our time and money(for storage fee and uber) not only these but the hassle and the stress that we had to deal with. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL. TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6/10 Good

It was certainly nice to be in the center of the old city but we were not prepared to have no place to drop off our luggage and no one was available who spoke any English to confirm our room reservation. The first room I was taken too was not only VERY small for 2 people, but it also smelled bad. The manager could not find a working key and had to go through several keys looking for one that worked (finally had to use the pass key instead). The second room shown to me smelled better and was slightly larger. The following day another manager in broken English asked me why I took a larger room than I paid for; I mentioned the bad odor and she dropped the topic. I appreciated finding a hotel on the day of my check-in but hope I can do better if given another stay need in Old Town Zurich.
