Poor 2.0
Terrible service - beware - locked out for hours
Read previous reviews about being locked out as no reception. You need a code but as I found out as well as 3 other guests while I was there and other reviewers, the code doesn't work always. Staff on phone rude abusive. Took 2 hours to gain access. $25 taxi fare from train station. Need to make international call to get access to room. Loft room so unless you are a midget you can't utilise 70% of the room. Dirty, old, ripped towels. Only 1 small single size blanket for queen size bed. Fan in bathroom stays on and is noisy. Had to climb 5 very tight flights of stairs with suitcases. That's after being told by staff to go to wrong building and climbing 4 flights of stairs. Just read the other negative reviews before booking and beware of the rude swearing and condescending person on the phone when you ring.

Nice place in a good location
The apartment was as advertised in terms of amenities and location. It was about 15 minute walk from the Zurich HB main train station, and about the same to old town area of the city. Even with no reception, the automated check-in process was very convenient. When I arrived the apartment had not been cleaned, but I think that was because I had just booked it the previous day so the staff had not updated their booking schedule. I called the 24 hour customer service line, and they had the cleaning staff there within 20 minutes, so it was not much of an inconvenience. Overall, it was a great stay and I would recommend this place to others.

The view from our balcony was breathtaking. We could see for miles; all the way to the mountains. The sunset was unforgettable. I made use of the washing machines and dryers in the basement. The walk to old town was doable. But I wouldn’t recommend trying to get to the apartment with luggage without a taxi. We ascended four huge hills on our drive. And the walk to and from the city center is loaded with staircases. Then, there are the five flights of stairs to climb without an elevator. While the room was not overly large, it had everything we needed, except an elevator (but the view made up for it.)

Efficient and convenient
The apartment was perfectly situated for our needs, close to the tram, grocery store and our children’s apartment. Check in was very easy. The place hd everything we needed with plenty of room. Negatives were the bed being very hard, though a few things were falling part, the fridge door, shower curtain fell the management took care of it very promptly. All in all it’s a good deal for a nice amount of space and a good option to be able to have a kitchen.

Zurich appt. Stairs but OK
This is a great cheap alternative in Zurich. We were unlucky to get three flights of stairs with no lift and that created issues with the wifes knee. If you are young and fit ( we are well over 60) then this is a gem. The cleaners are not great. Old receipts from previous guests, an old towell in the cupboard tend to make you think careless or sloppy but the place is OK. Full kitchen and walk 20 mtrs to Tram
