if you just need a functional place for a short stay, then Hotel Otter is just fine. We shared the toilet and bathroom with two other rooms on the same floor, but the arrangement was acceptable. The neighborhood is great with the old part of town and good restaurants just a few minutes away. But we would not stay beyond... More

We had a single night stopover at this hotel on a Saturday night. It was winter so noise was not a problem. The room was clean, large and centrally heated. The staff were very friendly and helpful and have an Australian connection. No rooms have private facilities which is reflected in the tariff. However, the shared facilities were clean and... More

This was an overnight stopover only, which was a pity, but Hotel Otter was a pleasant experience. It was spotlessly clean, the staff were really friendly and it was obviously well run. Breakfast was very good, taken in the bar downstairs which we really enjoyed. We were a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers and it suited us perfectly.

Excellent hotel right in the centre of Zurich, and only a couple of minutes' walk from Stadelhofen train station. The room was very clean, comfortable and spacious, with a sink in the room, and a shared toilet and bathroom. The staff are friendly and helpful, the wi-fi is good (and free), and the breakfast buffet (croissants, bread, boiled eggs, cheese,... More

Great location in old town with themed bedrooms. Very clean and cute touches like bright pink dyed eggshells on our hard boiled eggs this morning. Very happy with hotel for the price. Close to train station and trams and beautiful tiny bakery across the road.

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
