Our not so nice Swiss stay
No communication from owner to allow bags in room early! Bathroom was unclean and smelled like cigarettes, kitchen was extremely small and only had 1 pot and 1 pan, and the pan was in poor shape, room was unclean and dusty, very noisy at night!

8/10 Very good

Good location, clean
The hotel has an automated check-in and check-out system. The staff sends you all information in advance - it is easy to find. The place is nothing special but clean and quiet, ideal to stay for a couple of nights. The hotel is close to a tram stop that takes you straight to the city center and train station.

6/10 Good

Pros: Good location. Had line of sight with fireworks during Zurifest. Mostly clean. Cons: Ridiculously small bathroom. Shower head is not ideal. Slanted roof above bed and bathroom. Unintuitive check in hidden behind garage. Very hot in the summer. No AC.
