A nice find near Opera House, and easy walk to trams and Limmatquai shops and restaurants. This was my first time using the Stadelhofen stop on the train from the airport - worked well! I was lucky to get a room which had windows on two exposures, lovely view. Room size and bathroom fine. Helpful, friendly staff, and nice that there was a sister property (forget name).

I like this hotel and have been there during my stays for the last 10 years. I can recommend it and would come back. The location is excellent as it is within quick reach of the centre. The relationship between price and quality is a general problem in Switzerland.

An excellent hotel convenient for opera-goers. All other sights of the city and the surroundings are easily to reach, either by walking or ba public means of transport. A station is nearby. Should I go to Zürich again, I would come back, and I can recommend the hotel.

Very good hotel, close to the lake and to the city, excellent situated, very clean and nice rooms; we got, as requested, a room with a view to the lake, but there are only few rooms with that opinion. There is no garage or private parking space that belongs to the hotel, but a very secure public garage in the neighbourhood. We had been very satisfied with our stay here and highly recommend this hotel!

We all had a very pleasant stay. The hotel management is excellent. The front desk personnel were helpful especially Andrea and Natalie. We also enjoyed visits with Martin who is the Ass't Manager of Opera and Ambassador. The location is wonderful and every thing in Zurich is accessible via public transportion. We used to call Paris our "favorite city" but now Zurich has replaced that designation Thank you for your concern regarding our experience. We will use your service and advice, again. Sincerely Dr. King
