Run down rooms, no shades on widows to sleeo late, only steep stairs to carry heavy bags, good breakfast and very friendly staff and great location.

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.

poor cleanliness
the room was dirty, the shower curtain was mouldy; the lift was very slow. The whole place needs renovation

Great location. Rooms very basic but very clean.
The hotel is very clean and very centrally located but since it is older, the rooms are very small and the lighting is terrible. There was 1 not very bright bedside lamp and then just the overhead light. Terrible for reading. The bed was small (which we knew it would be) and one side of the bed was up against a wall.

Central location, basic hotel, nothing fancy...
Located in Niederdorfstrasse, it was good to be handy to restaurants and the train station. However our room was in the front of the hotel and the noise from the diners and hangers on in the street and the platz was very disturbing especially when it carried on all night and ended only early the next day. Room was very compact and power points were not conveniently located. The walls were thin and on the first night of stay, we could hear the guests in the next room's bathroom as though they were in our bathroom. Quite icky!! Bathroom was also very compact, shower curtain was mouldy at the bottom and the shower base was so compact that it was difficult to shower and avoid water flowing out. Breakfast was provided but put out in small quantities, perhaps hotel management were afraid that guests would eat too much? Overall, for the high room prices paid, we expected a better quality room and facilities.

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.

Historical building and comfortable
Located in the old city, means most historical site. Difficult to find an entrance, it nexts to steakhouse. Shower space is shabby, but I’m quite satisfied with these things since this is historical building. No need to be modernized and easy. It’s worth visiting the wine restaurant underground.
