weekend in Zurich
A hotel with atmosphere (and a great restaurant/bar downstairs). This was my second stay, and the room was not as nice as the first time, very small but ok. The location is very convenient.

Excellent small hotel
Excellent small hotel in Zurich, which is well-located and quite comfortable. The rooms feature Hastens mattresses and a wonderful set of toiletries from Kiehl's. Slippers would be a great addition to the in-room amenities.

Convenient, but that's about it.
It was so hot, we could barely sleep. The room was very small. We had to have the windows open(which only opened and inch), so it was very loud as well. Not enough bright light to put on make up. Too expensive for what it was.

Gorgeous high end hotel in beautiful old building
Seriously one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. An old building with beautiful gothic architecture, impeccably clean, with wood and expensive stone design. You truly believe that you are getting your money's worth. The rooms are small by American standards but comparable to most European hotels and more than comfortable enough for singles or couples. The rooms and building are clean and beautifully kept, with gorgeous views of the city life outside. The location is right next to the old town and a 10 minute scenic walk to the high end shops on Bahnofstrasse. Wifi is strong and reliable and there's a nice restaurant downstairs, in wooden old gothic style with seats outside on the riverfront. In the summer there's a rooftop bars with beautiful views of the city and mountains in the distance. Beautiful hotel,words dont do it justice

No A/C !!
Overall satisfied with the property, although the weather was around 25°C during my visit, and the rooms have no A/C, making it extremely hot. They do equip with a rotating fan, but this is not sufficient in such temperatures, Especially when sunshine is directly on the building façade, and opening windows is not an option, due to being on a main road with passing trams. Additionally hotel has a policy of closing reception at midnight, so if you are not back in time, there is no possibility of access. One has to carry the heavy brass keys around (as opposed to an easy-to-carry keycard). Otherwise quaint and comfortable rooms in a great central location.
