    Clean, comfortable rooms with Jacuzzi. Free wifi and broadband connection. Parking near by.

    Not seen from the street. Need to go out of the car to find the door to the hotel. Reception is working till 19:00 and after that you need to know you booking number to get the key.

    Close to the old centre, well serviced by several tram lines and night buses. We checked in late but found the manager waiting for us in the bar of the restaurant below the apartments and he could not have been more helpful. The room was spotless and well serviced, including a lovely kitchenette and a computer with free internet (which was really handy). Free Wi-Fi was available but we didn't need it with the computer there. The service that we received during our stay continued to be excellent, with the manager offering advice as to how to get around the city and back to the airport, saving us considerable money on the more obvious way of travelling. In summary, I would definitely return to

    Women be sure to bring own hair dryer

    The manager on the day we got there was extremely helpful in helping us find places to go, we wrote out a map and searched for train times online for us. Also the internet in our room was down he also worked very hard to replace it with another in less then 2 hours. our room was great but the staff make me recommend this great hotel.

    the apartments/rooms are superb with excellent ambience coupled with a wonderful opulent location..the hotel staff are fantastic and i would highly recommend to anyone and i will always return/use here..if you are looking for peace and tranquil within the elegant city of Zurich whether on bussiness or leisure,then this is the place(its terrific)...just 10minutes by tram-train into the hub of central Zurich...

    the kitchen in the room is good if you intend to stay for long, thought we couldnot use it much as we stayed for a night only.

    If you intend to reach after hours, be sure you have the reservation number, else you could be locked out as there is no reception after hours.

    Very nice and comfortable room. We liked the fact that there was a kitchenette inside the room and that helped us some save some bucks on expensive meals in Zurich. The rooms were clean and the facilities in the hotel were above average. The location is ideal! 5 mins from Zurich Hbf and parking is possible at location. Very calm and beautiful neighborhood.

    The staff was ok. Wasn't the most friendly staff in the world, but that might be due to language constraints. There is no way to contact the reception after 7pm and if you have a problem, there is no emergency number of the staff either. You'll have to wait till next morning 8am to get the matter looked at. Wasn't an issue for us but there was a couple who got the wrong room but since there was no way to contact the staff, it caused them some grief. The toilet was also not the best.

    Nothing. Apart from the free parking

    Difficult to find even with Navigation systems a tiny sign on the side of the building. Very poor value of money. Redicilous reception opening hours, the receptionist not willing to guide us to attractions in Zuirich. I regret staying there and I do not recommend anyone to stay at that hotel.

    Their computers run on linux so it is essentially impossible to use the computer for watching news via websites that require flash or anything as it will not download.

    When I came it was already evening, I didn't need anyone to check since there was a little machine, where I put booking confirmation code which retrieve all reservation information, they key after filling some empty boxes came from same machine. Next day I met the manager along with the staff, where they were so helpful and trying to satisfying their guests.The view of the room that I had was good since it was the last floor.

    This was given 4 stars!!! I don't know what was the basis for that? This hotel doesn't have elevator, it means you have to go up and down with your bags which really was a big problem for me.

  • Couple

    Small kitchen in the room, fast internet and good choice of English language channels on tv. I would definitely recommend this place for a longer stay.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The hotel is in an excellent location for either walking or taking public transportation to anything within the city of Zurich. It is clean, quiet, and well-priced.

    Parking is a challenge if you come by car. Few spots available at the hotel or on nearby streets.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Great place. We had a room on two floors plus a roof terrace. Best room we have ever had as a family. Genuine space for four. A stone's throw from the heart of town. I can highly recommend California House.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    stay to city but very noisy (trouley buses, tram trains, cars and heavy traffic just under your pillow)

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Good value for money. Check in via machine

    No service. No one available at reception. Bit noisy. Internet connection complicated/did not work.
