Awesome boutique hotel close to the main train station and other downtown Zurich amenities. Appears to be recently renovated - modern, quiet and clean. Looks like they also have a nice roof deck that I didnt get around to using.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
By chance, we saw one member of staff when we self-checked in and complained about the sliding doors for the toilet/bathroom not closing and continually sliding open. Stag simply shrugged her shoulders and said well there is nothing we can do. We were insistent that the door be fixed for hygiene reasons and she said she’ll see what she could do…after coming back from lunch, a bathroom towel was wedged under one of the sliding doors to hold it in place which was a health and safety risk. After complaining to the member of staff and requesting to move rooms, we were refused and had to hold the door closed with one hand while using the facilities. ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING!!!
