          I liked the location of it.

          I didnt like that there was no A/C and it was extremely hot.If we opened a window we couldnt sleep because of the noise.

          The location of this hotel was very central in the middle of "old town" Zurich. The rooms were very clean and updated.

          It was summer during my visit and quite hot and the hotel did not have a/c also the location is great because it's very central but also in a busy nightlife area so can be louad at night if you have you windows open due to the heat. However with the windows closed the noise is not noticeable at all.
