Budget accommodation in perfect location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 6, 2007

As we booked the hotel we didn't know it's a gay/gay friendly hotel, but don't let it make you turn back. The staff was friendly and everyone was respected equally.

The hotel is one of the few places offering rooms at this low price in the middle of Zürich old town. We did not need tram, taxi or bus in the city at once. Everything was within the walking distance.

In the main building there is the hotel, but they have a little bit cheaper rooms just a few minute's walk away in another building which is quiet and nice. (Spitalgasse 3). That is where we stayed. These budget rooms have shared toilette, but own shower, sink, good beds, big TV, minibar, sofa/couch, linen, towels, soaps, chair and a table plus a shrink for clothes. Rooms are clean and they are cleaned daily.

If you take the Spitalgasse's cheaper rooms (away from the main hotel and its several gay bars that might be noisy), you first have to register in the main place. Then you walk just a few minutes to your building. When you leave, you do your check out again in the main hotel.

The only thing that irritated me on Friday and Saturday evenings was the noice that came from outside (not hotel guests). Namely the old town's "party street" Niederdorfstrasse passes by the hotel and young people get really noisy late at night.

Unique Quality: Great location - all sights within walking distance.

Minibar, which we also used as own fridge.

Quiet hotel (despite the street noise).

Budget priced rooms. You can save hundreds of euros if you don't take some big normally priced chain hotel.

Weird but nice

We stayed here both coming into Switzerland and when we left again. We had two different rooms and they are decorated in the weirdest styles you can imagine, which adds to the charm I think. A bit noisy in location, but nice and central
