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

I booked this hotel on expedia because it seem like a good location for a decent price. But when we got there, the guy at the front desk said they canceled our resvo (for no reason) and emailed us couple days ago (which I didn't receive). The guy offered us another hotel 30 min away from Zurich (we have to... More

The room rate is cheap as far as Zurich goes. Tiny Room, and strong smell of cheap after shave. My bathroom did not have a shower. The breakfast is in the adjacent Thai Restaurant, and is very disappointing, and in fact not worth bothering with - use the Starbucks just 10 steps away for a better start to your day.... More
