Stylish Hotel in Zurich
The hotel is not located in the city center, however the train/bus station is nearby with 5min walk, it is convenient for us to travel around. Ard 25min train/bus can reach to the city center. Surroundings are business with residential area, it is safe even I hang out late. The hotel is stylish and chic, minimalism design gives you a clean and neat impression. We booked double room (urban room), which is spacious enough. The view is spectacular, definitely love the sunrise view. The room also got AC as well, and the window can be partially open. The hotel also has the gym and lounge, didn't have a try but went to take a look. Both look clean and tidy. Didn't try the breakfast.

lovely property with professional, helpful staff. Unfortunately, there was a heatwave, and the hotel has no real airconditioning. The staff did bring me a fan, and quickly. Restaurant is also great.

Disappointed Service
I have to say the hotel management was not very flexible. I tried to make a change two weeks before arrival and they wouldn't change anything as I booked a special rate. I had booked for four days and only could stay two because of our family reunion. I had offerd options like two rooms for two nights or a credit voucher that will be used within the near future but they said no adjustments could be made. I would not stay here again. Not only that, when we arrived the first room they gave me smelled very strong of smoke so was moved promptly another room.
