Quick stay in Zürich
Exceptional service ... the check in included accompaniment by the staff to my room to ensure every element of my experience was satisfactory. The hotel is right in the heart of Zürich and conveniently located to major mass transit. Very nice hotel.

Beautiful views. Fantastic breakfast.
We were traveling with a group, so we booked the 2 bedroom apartment on the 6th floor. It was dreamy! The views of the river and the old city are beautiful from the balconies. A lovely apartment, seems very new. I couldn’t tell entirely the number of beds from the photos before I booked, there were 5 in total, 2 were about US full bed size, and then 3 twin beds, between the 2 bedrooms. Also not pictured was a half bath, which was helpful. Also, the included hotel breakfast was incredible. Restaurant for dinner was less impressive for food, but was really nice to dine outside by the river.

Great hotel and service.
Transport links were excellent and they include the Basel card in the price of the ghotel for use on public transport for your duration. The itself is good, quiet and spacious. I would recommend to stay again.
