This hotel is a true jewel in the heart of Zurich!!! Everything about it is special; the rooms are very charming with excellent beds, beautiful down duvets covered in crisp linens, a minibar free of charge, as well as perfectly working free internet. What strikes most, though, is the extremely friendly and personalized service I get every time, without any... More

We stayed at the Kindli for 2 nights in July after a 9 day hiking trip in the Jungfrau. The hotel is centrally located off the Banhofstrasse within walking distance of the train station. Easy walking distance to restaurants and all the sights. The hotel is attractive and charming. The room was small, but very well appointed and had AC... More

Pity I only had one short night here, arriving late on a Monday night with Zurich looking suitably Christmassy. We hadn't been able to book the restaurant and on entering in to the bright festive reception, I could hear a raucous dinner going on - apparently the 'singing waiters', clearly popular! So without food (it was after 10pm) I was... More

We stopped for three nights in total at the Kindli on our way to and from a music festival in the Engardine. As we needed to change trains we wanted a hotel near the station. The Kindli fitted the bill and we were able to reach it on foot towing our suitcases along Bahnhofstrasse and then Rennweg. It too less... More

My wife loved the amenities in the room, the soaps, lotions, great towels, etc. I liked the location, use of computer in lounge, the breakfast. Small and quaint. It's expensive, but how often do you go to Zurich? I have stayed here at least 4 times on business since 1995, brought my wife here on vacation. will not disappoint.

The Kindli is a small hotel with some quirks that are mostly offset by its strengths. On the plus side, the hotel is centrally located in a cobblestoned, pedestrian-only area, and it serves up breakfast (and some excellent espresso!) in a very handsome ground floor restaurant. On the down side, our room (24) was small (although it did have a... More

This is a very charming small hotel right in the old town heart of Zurich. The rooms are tastefully "old style", the bed is comfortable and - where else would you find this - the contents of the minibar (no alcohol) are complimentary. Plus, there is a 24 hour coffee and tee service in the lobby. The staff is very... More

It always feels a little bit like coming home. Small hotel in the center of town. Walking distance to train station and opera house. Try the excellent Zurich style restaurant. Rooms are small and cosy. Don't expect stylish modern design. Bathrooms are classic style but working fine. This year Kindli finally invested in air conditioning, only needed in a few... More

Wow - from the warm welcome, to central location in old town, to the discreet but friendly service the Kindli is our place to stay in Zurich. If you like a quiter location e.g. not the Storchen which is surround by a pedestrian area/bridge, that is close to the main shopping street and just 120 meters to a beautiful park... More
