    Good central location, quiet (with the windows closed).

    One of the glasses in the bathroom had a white deposit in it, It had not been cleaned, although it was in a plastic bag. I was charged for breakfast for two persons for two mornings, whereas, in fact we only had breakfast on one morning, (the 7th April).

    It is located next to the main train station, i.e. just outside the city centre.

    Too expensive, hair dryer did not work properly, bath thowels had a bad smell.

    I liked the quality of the matress and bedding, the blackout curtains and a good sound isolation. The room had all the neccessary facilities. There was a breakfast area on the top floor of the hotel with the magnificient views (which cost extra). Good connections with the centre, airport, etc.

    I found Switzerland more expensive than uk. Therefore, the quality you get is lower for the same price. The design of the hotel's interior was not to my liking.

    Great location near sbb train station and tram lines. Great view from eighth floor room

    Perfect

    Convenient to Centralbahnplatz but around the corner so much less tram noise.

    Militant smokers gathered on the porch, blocking the front door to the hotel, and stinking the place up. A very unpleasant way to start and end the day.

    The complimentary Tram pass was a nice touch.

    No Restaurant! How can this be a 4 star hotel without one?
