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

First visit to Zurich and loved the city - so clean and water so clear to drink from the fountains dotted around the city. Our room was small but quaint and comfortable. It was reasonably priced for its very central location enabling us to walk to all the attractions in the city. Staff were very understanding as we were having... More

We spent 5 nights at this hotel, and were very happy with the location. Our only criticism was that the room was tiny, and only a double bed. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was more than adequate, with cereal, my favourite bircher muesli, eggs, pastries, fruit juice etc. The hotel is located close to both... More

I stayed at Hotel Hirschen for four nights. The location is accessible to the main train station and river which were the high points. When I arrived, the staff were not friendly and traveling from afar, not the Swiss way. I walked into the room and it was depressing. Marks all over the walls, no art, no refrigerator, hot, noisy...

This Hotel is located in a cobble square in the heart of Zurich's restaurant area and close to all the sights. Dont catch a Taxi from the train station as we did (expensive) walk or take a tram. There are a number of steps to carry your luggage up to reception, then a lift so be prepared for that one.... More

My husband and I arrived in Zurich for 3 days before we headed over to France. We had our bicycles in bike boxes and, while the hotel is narrow, they were very accommodating with a lift for our big luggage. They put us on the top floor which had a small outside area perfect for the bike boxes. They claimed... More
