Superb 9.0 From 193 reviews

Fair 4.0
The room was clean and nice. The receptionist was very condescending and rude when asked about simple questions relating to the room, the WiFi, and other basic questions. The bigger issue is the noise and the A/C. The room was about 80F all night (you can not adjust the temp) and just outside the room is a busy street for college kids who love to play Bluetooth speakers and sing horrible songs while taking selfies until 5am. I think the hotel is a 3/5. The surrounding noise is horrible. I would not stay here again.

Fair 4.0
There was a neighborhood festival the night of our stay. The speaker for the music was less than 20 yards from our window and the mudic was still going long after midnight. We should have been told when we booked the room.
Christine, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Great location, clean.
Great location - perfect location for where we were looking to stay and what were were looking to do. The room was small, which we already knew as we read in previous reviews. It was Ok as were were only in town for two days before flying out so we didn't need to unpack our large suitcases only the small ones. Besides that everything was great, the room was very clean and updated, everything worked, receptionist were very friendly and informative. A little expensive and saw same room at the hotel going for less the same days were were staying there but didn't bother to mention as Zurich is a busy place, to much to do!
