This is a budget hotel which means expectations need to be based on that. However, all of Switzerland is expensive and this budget hotel is also expensive. Middle-eastern motif throughout, in a great part of town in order to be nearby activities. Check in woman was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and was fine for a budget hotel.

I am writing this from my hotel room on the 4th floor. The room is small but at least the bed is comfortable once you adjust the bedding so you don't feel like you are sleeping in a sauna. My husband's pillow can only be described like a huge cushion with all the stuffing taken out. It is huge but... More

Awful Hotel. Rude Staff. No record of booking but then managed to produce all paperwork related to booking. Not enough rooms for 3 people so offered a room to share for the 3 of us, 3 business on business trip. The hotel can probably to booked by the hour if that is what you are after. Tried to charge Credit... More

If this hotel had costed like the other ones I have been hosted in I wouldn't have been so strict, but for what I paid I expected more: a better breakfast (one of the poorest), a shower on the same floor as I had booked (not on the floor upstairs), a better service in general...At the arrival you have to...

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
