The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful to find some delicious local cuisine restaurants! They offered free snacks and treats all day which was always a sweet perk! The location is maybe a 5 minute walk from the central Zurich train station which was very convenient. The rooms were spotless and cozy and had great views of the river and town. It is also conveniently located across the street from tour bus stations. Wonderful experience!

Great location, surprisingly quiet overnight. Short walk to main train station and lots of food options around. Room 203 had a small balcony, nice and clean and a good size. Would recommend
