My room (a single) was clean and calm. The bathroom was, again, clean and well-equipped. The breakfast was at unusually convenient hours. It was well-organized, with fresh food and nice staff. In general, the staff was discreet, helpful, and friendly. Very good value for money!

After a long day of travel we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who was efficient, helpful and went the extra mile with her customer service by offering us a refreshing, chilled, hibiscus tea on arrival. We felt welcome and in good hands. First impression of our room was great! Spacious, clean, accommodating, nice big window which can be opened... More

I don't have much to write for this hotel..I stayed for 2 weeks in this hotel and had the most depressing stay! The rooms were smaller than a bathroom in Dubai apartments! The rooms are so small that you will feel suffocated and claustrophobic! The bed was intended for Gummy Bears I think because I am 5'11 and my legs... More

I come to Zurich almost every two months and each time I stay at hotel Rex. I truly feel at home and the most important reason for that is the friendliness and accommodation of the staff. Lovely and cozy and minutes walk to the heart of Zurich by foot or by tram.

This is a good small hotel with friendly staff and very convenient to the city centre - a 10 minute walk or 4 minutes by tram which stops right outside. Breakfast was very good and the room was not flash, but clean and comfortable.

They did the best they could for our room choice on night 1, and gave us a great room for the 2 night return stay. Staff were great. Location was good for us also, close to transport, the city, and the main station.

We stayed for one night in August. Room was very comfortable, big enough for the three of us and the staff were exceptionally helpful. Breakfast was superb.
