The Europe is s very nice hotel in a good location in Zurich. It is quite near the Opera house and Sechselautenplatz which is a lovely place to sit on a cool evening. It should be said that we did not have any cool evenings the temps were close to 44 Celsius and Zurich was an oven. That was not... More

We booked this due to great trip advisor reviews, and it was brilliant. Fantastic location, and the staff were so friendly, welcoming and efficient. They even let us borrow their bikes and made sandwiches for us at midnight after returning back late after the Zurich Ironman.

This is an outstanding hotel in a very desirable location in Zurich. The rooms are air-conditioned, a real bonus as it was 97 degrees out. Breakfast in the bistro restaurant was superior, very Parisian. The room was always made up early in the morning so that when we returned after a morning's activities we were able to shower and rest... More

The headline sums it up perfectly. In addition, good bathrooms, good internet, lovely traditional brasserie restaurant. But the element that made this a great stay was the staff, all of whom were friendly, enthusiastic and super helpful. One of them even gave their personal bike to my friend to use for a couple of hours. Definitely recommend this hotel.

We just spent two nights at this hotel. Rooms were very comfortable an good size. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations. The location is excellent for walking around the city, along the lake and for good restaurants nearby.

We were in Zurich for 2 nights and had a very nice stay. The room was exactly as pictured and expected. Clean, comfortable and well decorated. Bathroom had all the necessary amenities. Even though there was air conditioning in the room, it was not cool enough. But to be fair, it was extremely hot in Zurich and the A/C was... More

We stayed here on June 25th and were most impressed. It was very evident that the staff at this hotel were family. The welcome was warm, inviting and genuine. We instantly felt that our stay was going to be a positive one. And it was! The room was small and quaintly decorated. It was warm and spotless and when we... More

I have stayed in hotels in other major European cities and this one really stands out in terms of quality, service, and value. The location cannot be beat, just steps away from Lake Zurich, the Opera House, Bellevueplatz with Globus, Migros, Sternen Grill, and Movenpick, and the Stadelhofen train station. Our room was beautiful, clean, and tastefully-remodeled complete with a... More

This is a family run hotel, and members of the family are nearly always there. The service is just very, very good. The location, for us as operalovers, perfect. The opera is just over the street, there are lot of restaurants near by, the Zürich sea 100 meters away, a walk along the sea is highly recommended. Even Bahnhofstrasse is... More

I chose this hotel because the price seemed reasonable (relative to others in Zurich) and because it looked to have a more comfortable look and feel. It met our expectations and the location was great. Easy strolling distance to the lake, restaurants, sites, and shopping. The rooms were fine, except for the tiny bathrooms, but hey, who cares? The front... More
