    Fabulous

    very simple but also very nice, clean hotel. friendly staff (not all with good English). were willing to change our room upon request with no hassle. Location is just great. 5 mins. walk from the main train station and from the main touristic areas

    the hotel has two adjacent buildings. we had a room in the secondary building, and it was the sort of room close topart of the roof. thus the room cieling was very low (we needed to bend) in parts of the room.

    Very good

    NIce location. Friendly staff. Clean rooms, though nothing luxury or special. Excellent breakfast.

    Triple room has a small extra bed, not a proper bed

    Superb

    Very accessible to all Zurich attractions, especially the train station. The staff was helpful and the room had everything we were looking for - not glamorous but it met our needs. The breakfast was delicious(very European)and breakfast room/restaurant was quaint. Very clean hotel.

    Hard beds and flat pillows - but I don't think this is important to Europeans...Americans like luxury and comfort.

    This hotel was excellent...it was spotless clean, comfortable, quiet and had a wonderful breakfast in the morning. The location is ideal to the main station as well as 2 minutes away from all other trams to the other parts of the city or even walking. Really Excellent..I was there on business.

    Fabulous

    I really liked the hotel. It is central, but still in a very quiet area. The rooms we had was not very personal (white walls, no paintings) but it was big, contained all necessary things and was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet was excellent.

    No bathtub and a view towards a questionable massage service (with men waiting in line at night) from our room. Do not take the small street in front of the hotel as a shortcut at night if you are offended by those sort of things or if you have children with you.

    Exceptional

    We stayed overnight twice at the Hotel St Josef on our way to and from Austria by train. We thought the hotel was excellent. The staff were very welcoming,friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely designed. The hotel is close to the station and very close to the Niederdorf which is a lively part of the old town full of restaurants and bars with a real buzz. The breakfast room was bright and airy and the continental style breakfast itself was good with plenty of choice. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Our rooms did not have air conditioning (though they did have fans) and when we stayed in July it was very hot so we needed to leave the windows open. The hotel is next to a busy road so there was some traffic noise.

    Superb

    It provided everything as advertised. Very helpful staff: they went out of their way to provide a lactose-free breakfast for me.

    Somehow the blankets did not fit the beds.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is a short walk from the main station. The breakfast was very good and beds were comfortable. Plenty of windows for cross ventilation. Liked that fact that there was a kettle and tea,

    We were concerned about the street noise as we had to have the windows open (no air-conditioning) for the warmer weather but we actually didn't notice the traffic until we woke up in the morning.

    Exceptional

    Great location in a walking distance to Zurich HB, shopping areas, restaurants. A big room for double. If you travel by train you need to push your bags up the hill, thus, I would recommend for anyone who have a lot of bags to take taxi from Zurich AP, cost about 45-50 CHF, dependening on the route. The hotel also provides a shuttle to Zurich AP until 16.50 pm, costing about 30 CHF for 2 persons. Staffs are nice and friendly, speaking English very well. Breakfast is also great. Prices are making sense.

    Just a bit noisy if you stay in the room that is posting to the front/road. It would not be much problematic during winter/spring, as you can close the windows and noise will be minimized. But during summer, noise from traffic cars and trains can be a problem.

    Exceptional

    Good location just a couple blocks from main activity in Zurich, a 10-minute walk to the main train station - very conveniently located. Our room was spacious enough including a roomy bathroom with shower. I understand some rooms do not have a bathroom and you use the common WC and shower located on separate floors so be sure what you are selection when making reservations. We were overall very happy with this hotel. Clean, good service, breakfast was included. I've seen some negative feedback on the breakfast offering but we felt it was more than adequate. We recommend St Josef and would stay again.

    We didn't have a problem with anything but I would note access to the hotel (if you're walking) is either up a couple flights of stairs or via a paved ramp to get up to the street the hotel is on. We're in pretty good shape so not a problem even carrying luggage, but it could be hard for some folks.
