Old Town Gem
Cute hotel right in the heart of the Alstadt (Old Town). Steps from great sights, food and shopping. Staff is welcoming and helpful, the room was small but clean and well provided. Great steakhouse is part of the building as well. Don't miss this one if you go to Zurich!

6/10 Good

The hotel is part of the Old Town Steak House, so there's no reception - you check in and out in the restaurant and then use the separate doorway to the rear during your stay. The room was basic although had welcome air conditioning and a kettle for tea (there's no coffee). There were no easily accessible plug sockets near the bed and the bedside USB power outlets only work when the bedside lights are on. The staff and friendly and the included breakfast, although simple, was a welcome addition, considering prices in Switzerland.

Good value and convenient for a short stay
A good bed, strong wifi, and a decent shower provided a very satisfactory short stay and good value. Location is excellent, ten minutes walk from the railway station and in the old town. The welcome was friendly but if you want a hotel with a smart reception or a large room with fancy decoration this is not for you.

Cute little hotel right near beautiful Old Town Zurich. Excellent location, okay room we had issues with out A/C making a horrible clicking noise that kept us up at night and some of our electronics in the room did not work such as the TV and bedside lights. The location, staff and AMAZING steakhouse restaurant at the bottom of the hotel made up for it.
