This is a very friendly and charming hotel, located nicely in an open courtyard in Old Towne. They are within walking distance to the ZurichHB station. The rooms were tidy and had comfortable space. I loved our view overlooking the courtyard with open windows embracing the ambiance. Nearby is Kuntshaus Musuem -which I highly recommend standing in front of Rodins's... More

This hotel was a bit more than we frugal travelers normally spend, but it was a good deal for the cost. We could not find an affordable Air BnB apartment of similar quality for one night in the area, which is how we ended up staying here. But our stay was lovely. We paid a bit more for a room... More

It was because of TripAdvisor reviews that I decided we should stay here, we were looking for location and value and Hotel Platzhirsch exceeded our expectations in every way! We booked online and got a stellar deal, 2 nights for the price of 1, breakfast each day (an amazing spread of breads, meats, cheese, eggs, cereals, grains, and everything in... More

Very nice hotel. nothing fancy but clean, well organized, with a nice cafe, located in a great area of Zurich. Many very good restaurants were very close by. The hotel cafe was very nice with many seat in the square. We would stay there again.

It must be said: Zurich is expensive. Once you swallow that, Hotel Platzhirsch is a good value, especially if you book through their website and get breakfast included. The bed was extremely comfortable! Our room was very nice and we stayed on a level with a small balcony. It provided a great place to enjoy our take-out bratwurst and chocolates,... More

Granted, we only stayed here the one night before we were due to fly back to the US so I was grumpy. We knew what we had reserved as Zurich is a notoriously expensive place to spend the night. Add the fact that during our stay the German football team of Monchengladbach was playing in town and about a thousand... More

I stopped here for one night, on the basis of location and value, which were both excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was quiet and clean but smelled of smoke, which may have been my fault for not specifying that I preferred non-smoking.

Very nice hotel in centre of the city! Friendly personnel. We enjoyed our breakfast and great coffee. You can also chill out at the bar where you can find some special drinks! We recommend this hotel for sure!

Perfect location on a pedestrian square in the old town. Small reception but welcoming staff. Great spacious room with many facilities (opt for a private bathroom). Nespresso coffee machine, comfortable large bed, complimentary fridge. Downstairs bar has indoor/outdoor seating with good cocktails. Expensive but then Zurich is an expensive city. Would stay again.

We spent one night at Hotel Platzhirsch recently and it wasn't a good choice for us. We were on a one-day layover on our way home to avoid a 3 am wake-up in Rome so we could arrive home less tired after a 3 week vacation in Spain and Italy. And I wanted to see some of Switzerland. It is... More
