We stayed here on 23-26Nov and Im satisfied with my stay- central location, affordable, friendly staff with breakfast and wifi. You could say that these are luxuries in Zurich hotels. Last time we've stayed on a 'branded' hotel in Zurich and for the price that we've paid in hotel otter, we couldn't be much happier. Downside though, toilet is shared.... More

If you are looking for an affordable place to stay in the center of Zurich than this is it. The only downside is the size of rooms. Well maybe it's not so bad for European standards but I think it is too small. Maybe for one person a double room would be ok.

We stayed two nights and was a nice experience. The Hotel was super clean, extremely nice location. The tasteful and complete breakfast was included in the price. Bathroom and toilet are both shared but are so clean and close to the rooms that we even did not feel detrimental to our travel. We did not face any problems with leaving... More

We felt very comfortable at this super nice hotel directly in the heart of zuerich. The room was very clean and all rooms of this cosy little hotel are made with love and everyone has something special. the bathroom and the toilet were in our case outside of the room but they were both extremely clean and so close that...

Breakfast was included in the price and it was served downstairs in the bar 'Wüstenbar". Our room was apartment - two dubble beds, kitchen with frige, microwave oven, crockery and cutlery. A bathroom in room but WC per floor.... More

We stayed just one night in that lovely hotel during a very busy period in Zürich. As we left booking a hotel to the last minute we just went for the cheapest we could find not expecting too much. And we were taken by surprise. The place is way better than we had expected for that price. With one of... More

This is a quaint hotel, that mainly consists of a staircase with rooms coming off of it. The staff was very accommodating. our room was quite spacious with a comfortable bed and nice decorations. Absolutely no complaints! I especially liked the cafe downstairs.

Hotel Otter was exactly what I wanted. The price was reasonable (all of Zurich is extremely expensive), the rooms were bright and well kept and a tasty breakfast was provided each morning. We were lucky to travel during the off season, so having a bathroom per floor was not a problem. Even with a crowd, the small floors only have... More

This small hotel disappointed me. Pre-payment. Toilet and bathroom on the floor. Very used mattresses and thus old. The room Japan was on the street and thus we were able to sleep, it was warm far too much and could not open the window of to the noise of people who were on the terrace below. The breakfast was without... More

I loved this little hotel.Yes, as other reviewers have said, the elevator is small. Yes, there is a bar downstairs. Yes, you will have to share a bathroom with the floor (which only consists of three rooms anyway). But, you're in Europe. In many hotels the elevator will be small and your bathroom is outside of your room. The hotel... More
