As a business purpose, I frequently come to Zürich and have stayed in more than 20 different hotels around the central city area and this Hotel Villette is by far and away the WORST and the most TERRIBLE hotel I've ever stayed in my last 10 years... I was already very worried about staying here prior to my arrival due... More

This hotel was a disaster. When I checked in, the clerk informed me that the room without bath I had reserved was not available ("booking.com must think we are robots, we can't update our records as quickly as they book us") and that we had to take a room with bath for 60 CHF more (total 510 for three nights)....

I'm afraid that I have got to disagree with the majority of the reviews for Hotel Villette... We stayed here for 4 nights for the Ironman (140.6) Switzerland in July 2013 which I was competing in. Having read reviews from lots of differing sites we decided to go with Hotel Villette purely for location and we were not disappointed, it... More

This place is a dump albeit a rather expensive one. In our room, there was no hotel info or TV channel info. The electrical plugs are not European standard so you can't plug your electronics in and even if you could, there were only 2 outlets, both used for mismatched bed lights. There is no clock radio, no coffee maker... More

We were conned by the pictures and with it being situated so close to the lake. This is a very overpriced budget backpacker type of hotel and I will definitely not recommend it in anyway shape or form. The first negative was the reception was on the second floor and you had to lug your bags to the first floor... More

No staff on duty at night. room not cleaned and beds not made, Noisy outside till 2.00am and too hot to close the window. When asked to change the room the women said... More

170CHF per night is not worth it. First, i thought that they offer room that overlooks the lake. None. You have to carry your luggages one floor up as the lift only starts there. The room didn't even have free bottled water. Breakfast was nothing to brag about. However, it's a few minutes away from the lake. Something positive.

This hotel is far mor expensive than its pricing suggests. The rooms are small, the ceiling is very low, the window opens to ugly areas with ventillation coming directly out from a kitchen. Cupboard very small, the walls are thin, painted red and other violent colours. There is an elevator, but no doors in the cabin - one wonders how... More

Incredible as bad treatment of employees with my friends and I, during the festival Street Parade 2012. I cannot understand how a hotel so cute, what could become really a little paradise, the first employees to be more professional, friendly. Before winning the schedule at the end of breakfast, we cannot even drink a cup of coffee. Unbelievable in a... More
