Positive Reviews

Comfortable accommodation, exactly as advertised

The all-around standard of accommodation at this Zurich pension is solid. Rooms and units were found to be comfortable and generously-sized, with the beds particularly cosy. Many were quick to note that the rooms here are presented exactly as they are shown online. This honest approach won many fans.

Perfect for self-caterers

This property was popular with those looking for simple accommodation in Zurich, but the in-unit amenities were a cut above the basic. In particular, guests really liked the communal kitchen facilities here, which helped them to cut down on dining costs. This property is also located close to a few supermarkets, another plus for self-caterers.

Guests liked check-in system

There is no on-site reception team here; rather, guests received their keys by inputting a code sent to their mobiles into a box just outside of the property. This process resulted in a swift check-in/check-out experience, a point that was highly praised, especially among seasoned travellers.

Negative Reviews

No staff available for queries

Despite its convenience, there was a flip-side to this property's unmanned check-in system. Indeed, the process proved to be a challenge for those who had questions about the area or for those who had problems with their accommodation.

No lift

Guests - and especially those with heavy luggage - were unhappy to find that this property does not have a lift. Those caught out resorted to lugging their bags up the stairs of this pension, a point that was found to be inconvenient.

Very small bathrooms

While the units themselves were praised for their overall spaciousness, the bathrooms at this property were something of a letdown. In fact, many guests struggled in these overall tiny spaces.
