4/10 Fair

Our apartment on the ground floor was very small, unlike the images on the website. It was the size of a small hotel room with a kitchen unit right next to the bed. We had difficulty regulating the temperature as the room was hot when we first arrived and had trouble with the window.

no service and dodgy area
We are a family of 4 staying 3 nights, it didnt met our expectations, price was lower than Zurich average, so service was accordingly. - check in: we got the keys easily from the safe box as reception time is limited. we never get the chance to see them. You get an extra key for the safe and the wifi is good - the room was smaller than expected and the sofabed was not made into a bed, We had to make it ourselves - the toilet was small but clean, although the soap holder was falling a little water was running out of the shower. - we didnt cook at all but when making our final review of the room we opened the dishwasher to find some dirty cups from prior guests, this was disgusting. - floor below the bed was super dirty as well, some toy fell down and we had to dig into it . - tv was not working at all , we called to request fixing and they said they will call me back but they never did and tv never worked - we stayed here during summer so room was quite hot, there were some fans on the floor to compensate but it was very noisy - area is dodgy, on our way to central station we saw a couple of guys getting high, police arresting a guy for drugs and several hookers looking for customers, it raised a lot of questions on my 6 year old - we put the “clean my room “ tag each day but aside from taking out the trash nothing was done So if you want a room just to sleepover this is a good choice, do not expect more

Fine Room with Friendly Staff
The hotel receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The room was nice. Hotel location is a bit out of the way from the main attractions, but is close to a tram. The train station is an 18-minute walk and Old Town is about a 25 minute walk. Yhe biggest thing you should know before booking is that check-in is only until 6PM. The staff is not on-site after this time of you have a afternoon/evening arrival.

Good value for money but inconsistent info
Nice clean & cheap hotel, close to the main attractions Didn’t like the fact that states you can pay at the hotel & the hotel emails saying they won’t confirm booking till they get a card, lucky I read the email before boarding Overall great value for money
