No problem with the hotel staff, nice people indeed. Heard same talk about breakfast..."if you had made the reservation with us, it would be free...." (not what happened in all others 4 cities we've stayed before by "booking" and "hotel's" reservations, places we had nice and FREE ones...). The room was kind of small, same with the bathroom, which door... More

We started our trip in Zurich two weeks ago and enjoyed our two-night stay, with one caveat. The pros: great customer service, convenient location (both from train and to the rest of city), quiet location, tastefully decorated accommodations, comfortable room, room available for our early arrival from overseas, non-feather pillows for us allergy sufferers, comfortable beds, snacks in the lobby....

We prefer small and friendly boutique hotels and Hotel Europe encapsulated what we enjoy. The staff on the front desk were hospitable and made us feel at home straight away. The room was attractive, cosy and charming and the beds were comfortable. The restaurant served delicious French food and wine. It is a great base to visit the Opera, old... More

Yes, I'm here again and will be here every time and anytime I can. When I last wrote, in October of 2013, I was only beginning my reviews on TripAdvisor and felt limited regarding what to write.

This hotel is ideally located near Stadelhofen train station with access to the main train station and the airport. You can easily walk to all major attractions. Our room had a balcony with a lovely view of Lake Zurich. Rooms are spacious by European standards. The hotel restaurant is expensive, but very nice. Would definitely stay there again.
