The room had a shared bathroom with other rooms.

Nice location

It was a very nice hotel with all the facilities. It was in a good location. Walking distance to the old town. We had a big room with comfortable beds. Check-in process was smooth.

I guess the fact that there was only one shared bathroom for all the rooms in the floor is a minus.


4 November 2023

Very good

Spacious and well illuminated room. Clean shared bathroom and toilet. Location is acceptable, but the room price is very good. A Pho restaurant nearby.

Noisy cracking wood floor. No desk in my room, only a tea table. Debit card maybe refused for holding the credit(only this one refused 2 of my card out of 6 hotel in UK and Switzerland).

This place got a lot of potential! Keep up the good work!

The staff was very kind and helpful. The guesthouse is located not too far from the center of Zürich. The hot chocolate and the croissant are delicious. The public park outside is nice during daytime (however I would not recommend it during night time). Lot of mothers and kids downstairs which bring a good atmosphere during daytime to this cool vintage inspiring place.

The floor of our room could benefit from a refurbishment. :-)

Overall it met my expectation and I would recommend this place.

I got a very warm reception at arrival and clarity on my stay. Though I had to share a bathroom, it was kept very clean by housekeeping. I like the proximity to bus and tram stops. Beautiful park just opposite.

My room and walkway had squeaky wooden floors and I had to tip-toe, as I didn't like to hear the squeaks. It was also a bother when people walked past my door.

Spacious, charming, comfortable room and good value.

Value for money, size of room, and shared bathroom was very clean and private.

Entrance is confusing.


28 October 2023


As it was not hot whilst we were here, we were able to close all the windows in the evening which made any noise issues minimal. The location is great, and the larger room we occupied was very spacious.


28 October 2023

Very nice place, very good value for money

Super cool and young part of town, great workers, very clean, room was spacious and affordable.


21 October 2023

Charming, comfortable, and practical.

Breakfast (single plate and coffee) for 14 CHF is pretty good value and quite delicious.


17 October 2023

Perfect spot for my night at the Volkshaus

Excellent cafe with really friendly staff. Room was clean and comfy with more character than a hotel chain.

Exceeded expectations —great way to start the trip!

I was traveling with my three siblings, their spouses, and my husband. We considered this a “throw away night” on our trip as we passed through Zürich. So we were pleasantly surprised when the the staff was super friendly and made our evening so enjoyable with great suggestions for drinks and dinner downstairs and the rooms were cute and comfortable! They even provide tower fans in case you want one which made a huge difference to us and free postcards that we used to send some love back home

I don’t have anything negative to say. Even though shared bathrooms aren’t preferred, we knew what we were signing up for and so it met expectations. I guess if I HAVE to write three sentences I could say that it was difficult to get our NINE PASSENGER van through the alley to reach the parking in the back.

Amazing stay. Loved it.

Very large room, comfortable, and friendly staff.


11 October 2023

Nice place but noisy

Nice and spacious room, clean shared bathroom. Good location, close to pubic transport.

Quite noisy, both inside and from outside (pubs and traffic).


10 October 2023

Great welcoming place to stay.

The rooms are large and spacious, having smart TV's is a bonus. Great location with the park and restaurants all within walking distance. Share bathrooms were only with two or three rooms and had zero issue accessing them.


6 October 2023

Beautiful Boutique hotel in city centre

Beautiful Boutique hotel in city centre - the room was immaculately clean and the bed was so comfortable. All the staff were helpful with any little thing we needed. The attached cafe is also super nice! Ideal location a half block away from transit. Highly recommend!

We were group of 4 and the room was very spacious.

Bathroom/Toilet was common for 3 rooms, but manageable


30 September 2023


The room was absolutely massive, comfortable and cosy. We were on the very top floor so the views were really cool.

The room was expensive and massive so a small chiller would have been nice just to store water at least.

Good value room for Zurich

Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Could take drinks up to our room from the bar downstairs. Let us leave our luggage there for a few hours after we checked out.

No safe in the room. Location wasn't ideal for the short time we were there.
