Location and convenience. Short walk to main train station, restaurants, grocery/market, convenient store right across the street. Self check in can be a challenge without Ellie's help.

Great hotel in a good location. Close to Zurich HB train station. The hotel has a great bar and the bar staff are very friendly. The hotel itself has no staff present so checkin is a bit complicated. Bar staff help out.
