Charming boutique rooms
Situated just a short walk to Zurich’s town centre is boutique hotel Josef. Parking is available across the road and the staff were friendly and helpful despite a self check in surface. The room was clean and had all the normal amenities including a fantastic coffee pod machine. Only downside is the room was slightly on the small side although we had just enough a space.

Nice hotel to stay for a business trip
Josef boutique hotel was a nice, clean hotel, though at first I got a bit lost with the fact that you need to get the keys at the other hotel close by. However, it was the only thing which was not that disturbing as the rest was just fine. Starting from location to comfortable rooms

Confusing Check-in
Hotel is very nice and functional but checkin was not clear. You have go to the restaurant and they have the self checkin there which was confusing. They need better instructions for the checkins.

Upscale Backpackers Hostel
The good - the bed was comfy and location if you need to catch the train and be close to downtown. The bad - it felt like an upscale hostel room/ travelodge. Computer check in which didn’t work so we had to go to a Neighbour hotel to check in traditionally. The room was tiny, however was designed efficiently. Hard as this is our first time to Zurich and we don’t have much of a comparison, however a Travelodge in the center of London was cheaper on the same night. The bathroom had finger prints on the shower glass and all over the doors. Since the hotel lacked any staff we couldn’t get this resolved.

An amazing stay at a lovely boutique hotel!
I had an amazing stay at The Boutique Hotel Josef, the staff were exceptional. The location is amazing - it was really central and a short 3 minute walk from Zurich station. The amazing staff were really helpful in reccomending some Christmas markets to visit. The food in the cafe is also really nice. I would say that the hotel being quite new there were some things to note - notably the staff perhaps weren't too familiar with working in a hotel. For example, I wasn't shown where my room was and was left to collect my own luggage from the luggage room. Neither of these were an issue to me, I think they were due to not having enough staff on duty and I still had a delightful stay - but just things to note as the hotel grows! Also I must mention that the Hotel St Josef is where Google Maps originally took me, on the other side of Zurich. I was met there with a angry receptionist who was upset at the fact that this boutique hotel has opened using the same name. Other than that I had an amazing stay and would definitely stay again. The Molton Brown toiletries and nespresso machine were the cherry on top!

Schlafen in Bahnhofsnähe
Freundlicher Empfang im Café/Rezeption, effizientes Selfcheck-in, Unterstützung wird angeboten, wenn nötig. Super Lage ein paar Gehminuten vom Bahnhof. Kleine, aber feine Zimmer mit Nespresso-Maschine!!! Kleines, sehr schönes Bad, sehr sauber. Einrichtung sehr einfach aber mit Stil - nichts zuviel, aber auch nichts zuwenig. Perfekt für den Preis. Würde jederzeit wieder buchen.
