The unique location combined with the attentive service of the staff make any stay in this boutique hotel an unforgettable experience.
The "Öpfelchammer", endearingly called "Oeli", is the Number One meeting place for everybody. It was also Gottfried Keller’s restaurant of choice and it is Zurich’s oldest and most authentically preserved tavern. To this day the old traditions of a wine restaurant are honored with the famous Balkenprobe, or beam test. The “Oeli” also has its own “laws”.
