Hotel St. Josef
Travel Blogs from Zürich
When I last wrote to you from Zermatt I told you my only disappointment was that I hadn't seen the Matterhorn from our apartment. Well, I'm pleased to report that the following morning Jeff woke me up and told me to look out the window. There it was, in all its glory! It was one of the most magnificent sights I've ever seen and a moment I'll never …
... loads of wasps around and somehow I managed to get one in my mouth whilst drinking my wine...fortunately for me it had already drowned!!! So out it came without me being stung...! phew.. The people next to us were having drinks with a few friends, and they started to try and talk to us about Prince Charles & Camilla of all things...apparently they weren't too keen on either of them but they thought William & Kate were ...
... not Niederdorf. It has more locals and less tourists, and is a lot edgier (and a little seedier, which is good). That said, I actually ended up hanging out with two South African dudes in the Langstrasse, while my favorite bar was actually a winestube in Niederdorf, but only because the wine was cheap, but also because it was decorated (as was the whole bar) with artporn, or pornart, or something.
Up next, Liechtenstein.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel St. Josef Zürich
Great location, friendly staff
We only stayed one night before flying out but found it to be very reasonably priced for Zurich, central location is great - walk to main train station and shopping, restaurants and bars. The room was clean and the staff friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Nice, central and good value for money
5 minutes walk from Zurich Hauptbahnhof, safe and good location, very friendly and efficient staff during reservation process, check in and check out. Spotless clean rooms, good sized double room with up to date bath/WC. Good breakfast buffet, all in all a very pleasant experience.
A wonderful place to stay in Zurich
For as pricy as Zurich is, St. Josef is a wonderful find. We would definately stay again.
For the negative comments posted here about it being on the edge of the red light district, that is false. It is on the edge of Neiderdorf, a shopping and commercial district.
Bright, quiet with a helpful staff and a wonderful restaurant.
A very nice clean, modern hotel in a good location. Our family, two adults and two kids, stayed in a 4 bed room in a second building. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated. It is on a quiet street, but close to the train station and everything else. Staff is nice. They have arrangements for a shuttle to the airport. Very nice breakfast.
We'd heard it was impossible to find nice, reasonably priced accomodations in Zurich--but we did it. We spent one night at the St. Josef, a small, moderate hotel only 7-8 min. walk from the train station. The hotel and room were very clean and modern. Zurich is a very busy city but this hotel sits on a hill a bit above all the hustle and bustle so we didn't hear all the traffic noise at night. The hotel sits between the train station and the universities so you see a lot of college students heading to class. It was in a good neighborhood, off the beaten path, but near all the restaurants and trains. If you don't mind a little hike up the hill, this is a great hotel for the value and location. We paid $160 US per night with a full bath in the room and breakfast included. I would absolutely stay here again.
New and modern hotel with good location
Just stayed at Pension St. Josef in June 04, we love it!
Excellent location, close to train station, supermarkets (co-op city and Migros), restaurants, and shops. It was a little pricy but this is a pretty new hotel with everything you need in the room (coffee maker, TV, soap, shampoo). Things are in general quite expensive in Switzerland. We stayed in a room with private bathroom, no dirt or bad smell at all. Breakfast was good and plentiful with quite a lot of selections. I would recommend it if you are planning to visit Zurich.
Great stay in May '04
Had a great stay at the Hotel St. Josef in Zurich. The rooms were clean, and the hall bathrooms were spotless and modern. There is a good bit of street noise at night, but with the windows closed we slept like babies. For the price, the location is excellent - just 10-15 minutes' walk from the main train station. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Thumbs up!!
I have some accidental knowledge about rooms in Zurich: knowing we would be arriving late I booked our first night on-line and we landed in a horrible property (small, dirty and smelly), while paying about US$100 / night. The next morning we left that hotel (Krone Limmatquai) without even taking a shower and we started looking for another hotel.
Great location and friendly staff!
I found the St. Josef to be a fabulous addition to my recent trip to Zurich. The location can`t be beat...just minutes from the main train station. The rooms and washrooms were immaculate and I found the staff sincerely friendly and helpful. I am online right now to make another reservation for an upcoming trip to beautiful Zurich. I highly recommend this hotel!

Too expensive, not enough room to swing a cat. Staff helpful. RIght on the edge of red light district. So ok if you like rent boys and old whores. Relatively clean, but really much better hotels in Zurich than this.
