First time to Zurich and Hotel Europe was a treat. Great location next to Limmat River and walking distance to historical sites and tram station. Eva and Sebastian were exceptional host and made great recommendations for dinner. Even provided a farewell drink!!!

The location of this hotel is perfect - it's by the lake, a few blocks from Old Town, a couple blocks from the train station, nice size rooms that are very nicely decorated, and in a lovely neighborhood. The hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely kind. We booked through Travelocity and were unaware of the free breakfast... More

So I'm writing this review from the balcony of our room on the fourth floor (#45) looking out over the lake on our last night of this 3-night stay... I won't write much as I already wrote a lengthy review following our previous stay in February 2015, but suffice to say, Sebastian and his entire family have once again outdone... More

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.
