This hotel is in a great location, 5 minutes walk to the main Zurich train station and 5 minutes to the old town 'centre' for bars, restaurants etc. If you like shopping, its 5-10 minutes to the main shopping street (Bahnhofstrasse) which is full of expensive fashion designer shops and high end goods. The hotel is very basic, but for... More

The location so close to the main railway station was what we needed after the long journey from UK. Just five minutes walk in a reasonably quiet area of the city. Hotel was clean and comfortable and facilities were very good. The staff spoke English and were very helpful in ensuring our comfort for our overnight stay. Like everybody else's... More

The hotel is small but just a walking distance from the main train station and Sihlquai bus station. It is also near the Swiss National Museum. Small room but comfortable and clean. It's a quiet area. I came in early about 10am and the room is all ready. Check-in was a breeze. Breakfast is included in the hotel package but... More

Walking distance from main train station...what more do you want? As a woman traveling solo, I felt safe as it took me about 3min to walk to the main train station. The rooms are clean and comfy and staff very helpful. The only disappointment was the lack in variety of the breakfast...would like to see fresh fruit and maybe eggs... More

This is very conveniently located hotel very close to the railway station and the old town. Check in was smooth and the manager offered us free US-> EU power adapters. This is specially important because most of the adaptors you buy in US that you take to EU won't work here in this hotel. so do ask for those. The... More

Good value compared with other Zurich hotels. Central but quiet position. Stayed here 6 or 7 years ago. Furnishings much improved since then, and especially the breakfast which is now very substantial.

Family owned and run, staff were pleasant and caring. Our room was on the 4th floor, accessed by a tiny lift, but at least there was a lift. When I asked for a quiet room, I was told they had none, but the bit of street noise in the morning did not bother us, and noise from any nightlife was... More

A short walking distance from the train station. Clean, friendly, good breakfast, good room and a fair price. Quick to help with questions about trains, maps, etc. It is in the center of the city with plenty of shops, attactions, restaurants, etc. It has a local feel- not a chain hotel.

I missed the last train to Geneva and tried over 10 hotels around the station, but all were full or too expensive. Finally found hotel Arlette and a very kind night concierge who found me a single room that was clean and comfortable for the few hours before the morning train. He even phoned me in the morning to make... More

The hotel is a two-minute walk from the main train station, and is at short walking distance from the city center, museums and shopping streets. The room was clean and cozy, included an air conditioner and a mini bar, a desk and a very comfortable bed. Despite the central location, it was very quiet. The breakfast was simple but sufficient-... More
