    For elderly people - too many steps up and down. Water/shower system needs improvement.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Service was excellent

    It appeared some of the technical things were only "roughed in", but whoever renovated ran out of money, e.g. second sets of electrical outlets in bathroom or air system in bath room

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Good location, modern room, nice and clean.

    At the breakfast, the staff was very attentive, I feel watched!Their kindness was pushed to the extreme in my opinion.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Great location. Walked from the train station. Very interesting interior. Very pleasant English speaking staff.

    Room service menu was a little limited. Only important if you are traveling with a small child. Otherwise there are plenty of restaurants nearby.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location, large room, very quiet (no street noise)

    Rather exoensive

    Design of the room, friendly staff, great location.

    The price for a night was rather high.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    The hotel setting is a perfect mix of classic and modern. It locates conveniently in the old city with just a few steps to the shopping area. Tram connection from the train station to Hotel is also very convenient. The breakfast was excellent and staff were very helpful. We will come back again!

    Not the usual city hotel. It has style and chick And you feel like a millin dollars.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Great service. Amazing rooms with fantastic designer furniture. Great location, seconds away from the famous Bahnhofstrasse.

    Exceptionally expensive but on par with other similar luxury properties in Zurich.

    Luxurious and close to shopping district and old town.
