About this area

Zürich

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Everything was handled beautifully, Only complaint is that the bed was only several inches off the floor making it quite, for a senior, to get back to a standing position

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Horrible. Not the cleanest hotel, the pictures advertised online do NOT match the actual room. Or even the outside aspect of building. There is actually a university next door, not a grass area with an area of seating. A mini fridge would be ideal to keep bought products cold. Definitely would not recommend this hotel. Not close to downtown. Breakfast situation is very confusing and unclear, limited options. If you speak English- you have 1 tv station option to watch. Horrible!!!
