Fine for those who wear a size medium of smaller.
The staff was wonderful, breakfast was enjoyable, and location was ideal. For travelers who wear a size medium the shower and double bed should be no problem, but I'm an XL and was unable to close the shower curtain or rest comfortably in the double bed.

The hotel was in an excellent location. Very charming but the beds were not comfortable

Fair 4.0
You get what you pay for!
The location and the breakfasts are great. Staff is helpful. Zurich is obscenely expensive. Hotel is reasonable; however, not really as advertised. Rooms are so small that you cannot open your suitcase on the floor or walk around the bed easily. Shower curtain was mildewed, as were the Kleenex in the wall holder They 'upgraded' our room. Imagine what the other one would have looked like. The rugs were dirty as was the seat cushion on the one chair. I took pictures and sent them to the front desk. If you can deal with the limitations, you will like it. We did not. Would not stay here again.

Good 6.0
Great location. Very small rooms. Even smaller shower. I thought it was over priced for the room. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was good.
DANIEL, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
This hotel is old, but the room was adequate since we were barely in it. It was very hot, but an open window on an upper floor and a fan provided “air.” Ask for the back, which was noisy enough, but the front is over an outdoor restaurant. The tram system is close and easy to use. We bought our tickets at the desk. There are a lot of restaurants close by.

Location is perfect, in the middle of the old town. It is a noisy area, but it has its plus sides. Building is more than 400 years old. Rooms are small, but clean. Small bed. No air condition, but there is a fan. Very good breakfast and friendly, helpful staff.
