"A good hotel with a twist"
We stayed for one night at this hotel before traveling to another place for our vacation . The location is excellent as you can see lake Zurich from the restaurants and some rooms ( where our room was not one of them) as it is located on a hill. Our room was located in the newer building. The building is cylindrical and the rooms are around it, the route to all the rooms are through a wide spiral route , therefore the rooms are narrow at the entrance and gets wider as you go in. I can see the gardner's shed in front of our rooms with some trees around it, not the best view . The deco was funky, cupboard on wheels , funny bed design. The bathroom size was okay with nothing special to write. Now to get to the room from the main building (and reception) we need to go down one floor, through a underground pass and some stairs to reach the building, so moving your luggage will be a hassle. We really wished we booked in the older building with the view of the lake. The staff were very helpful, nice attitude, even though it was really hot and there was no AC anywhere in the hotel, including the room so we asked for a fan to cool the room and opened the door to increase the air circulation until the evening. Breakfast was nice, good quality products including fresh fruits, local jam and Swiss cheese of course . So if you want to stay at this hotel try to get the lake view room ( which is about 100 Swiss franc more) and definitely avoid summer .
"Peaceful, with the best view of the Lake of Zürich"
I absolutely love coming here whenever I'm in Zürich. In fact I love it so much I came here twice this time. I go to the balcony and relax and read with a latte or two for a couple of hours, looking out to the most amazing view over the lake of Zürich. You can sit there in the peace and tranquility. No need to be a resident. The balcony is open from 10am for non-residents. To get to the hotel, get the number 6 tram, direction to the Zoo. Get out at Zoo. Then it's a short walk up the hill to the hotel, walking past beautiful open fields. The view at the top is breathtaking. If you fancy a break somewhere peaceful with lovely views, come to the best place in Zürich.
"One week vacation - repeating soon!"
Hotel location/general: Located on a hill overlooking the city, the hotel offers a wonderful view of lake Zurich and the mountains. The Zoo is nearby (great if you have kids) as is public transportation (excellent and safe). About 10-15 min to the city centre. Rooms/notes: Stayed in room 108 in the "older section" of the hotel. Beautiful view. Room was spacious, and offered everything I needed. One night however here was a wedding and it seems the hall was close as the music was very loud and disturbing. Other than that, perfect.....Note no, AC but fan provided. Cleanliness: No problems here. Very clean and quiet. Food: Light snacks at the bar, dinner offers a wider choice. As most food in Zurich: very good - excellent. Breakfast offers a nice full buffet included in the price Service/staff: Very good, friendly, and attentive. Overall: I will be staying here again in the future.
"Beautiful location, lovely hotel!"
I arrived early in the day and was given a room immediately. The hotel is absolutely lovely upon arrival, upon entering the lobby and everything afterwards. Besides the short trip up he hill away from the city, the hotel offers everything I would hope for in my first visit to Zurich. It would be more lovely had I been with my husband, it feels very romantic. Room was very clean and well appointed with desk and chair, I used then nespresso machine and bed was very comfortable. The door leading out to the terrace with seating overlooking Lake Zurich was incredible. My lunch was amazing, sitting by the window overlooking Zurich. All the great reviews I read that led me to book here were correct! Stay here!!
I am staying in this delightful hotel perched high above Zurich . The view from my room across the lake is to die for and almost feel I could just stay here and not go anywhere ! It's beautifully designed with a lovely terrace and outside garden. Very quiet away from it all and the air up here is very fresh. Easy to get to by No 6 tram from the station and then a 5 minute walk ... taxis in Zurich are very expensive. You can walk in the woods jog, ride the mountain bikes provided . The staff are so friendly and helpful and clearly like working here . It is also very clean . Not cheap but I got a good deal on a last minute website . Really worth every penny !
