We always try to stay in this cute part of town when we need a place to stay the night before our Stateside departure. It is a ten minute walk from the train station. The area is mostly pedestrian only bar a few side streets and has lots of charm and tons of bars and restaurants. Yes, as many have... More

Dear Patten36 It was a pleasure to welcome you at the Hirschen Hotel and we thank you for your nice review. The rooms in our historic building are made for the needs of the people several hundred years ago and so the rooms are in fact rather small. But as you have mentioned, our perfect location invites everyone to discover... More

The Hotel Hirschen is in a great location in old town Zurich only 10 minutes from the train station. We were grateful that our room was ready at 11:00am after our long flight. We had a double room which was a nice size and a small, but adequate size bathroom. The room and bath were very clean and comfortable. The... More

The hotel is fabulously located in the main shopping area of Zurich's Old Town, and is apparently the oldest continously operating guest house in the city. This means its rooms were designed for the needs of people 400 odd years ago and are a lot smaller than you would find in a modern hotel. We did notice that the more... More

Our BA flight was cancelled on a non-refundable room rate. However, the hotel said that if I visited by the end of Jan, I could use my previous payment as credit. This is virtually unheard of so well done. I went the following week. The room was small and basic, but adequate. As was the bathroom. The staff were friendly.... More

As everyone says, the location was fantastic, near the river, Old Town, restaurants, shops and walking distance from train. Our room was oh so tiny, just no room for large suitcases when you are travelling around Europe. Our welcome was fairly cold but efficient, and we weren't even given the most basic information like Wi Fi password, we had to... More

Great hotel. We chose it mainly because of its proximity to the train station but it was definitely more than that. Lovely fresh clean rooms and the staff were great. The breakfast was a nice surprise. Lots of choice for a continental breakfast - we were even able to boil our own eggs. Nice and close to restaurants and shops... More
