We stayed here one night at the beginning and end of a cycle tour organised by Radweg & Reisen. Everything was great about the hotel - location (10 minute walk down the hill to the old town and less to the main station), room was comfortable and clean, breakfast buffet was of a high quality, generous and varied and the...

This hotel is clean and comfortable. Trams run by frequently, making it very easy to get to downtown Zurich, the train station, etc. our room was small, but nicely appointed. The beds are very comfortable and the curtains block out the morning light. We were in the fourth floor overlooking the street and found it very quiet. The bathroom is... More

Hotel is a short walk from the center of town and the rooms were very tidy. Affordable hotel in a very expensive city. Would stay here again, and also try their other properties. Also have some limited off street parking. Airport also a quick and easy trip from the hotel.

Switzerland as a country is pleasant and the people here are extremely polite and friendly. Our stay at this hotel was comfortable. The staff at the reception were courteous and helpful. They even explained how to use the tramways. The breakfast that they serve here is sumptuous and delicious. The tram routes 7 and 15 are just alongside the hotel... More

Ideally located 10 mins walk or 2 mins by tram from old town area or train station. Restaurant only does breakfast (which were excellent) and lobby cafe is minimal, but if all you need is a nice room in a good location this hotel is perfect.

I spent five nights at this hotel primarely because it offered superb value for money. The location is ideal with a tram (streetcar) stop almost in front of the hotel. The train station can easily be reached in 10 minutes (even with heavy luggage) and a visit to the wonderful zoo of Zurich (and its Masoala hall) only takes some... More

Excellent, convenient on all points. We come to the Rex whenever in Zurich. Trams take you in two stops to the center of town or four to see the KunstMuseum. Breakfast is well presented. WiFi rapid style. All around best price/quality in a big city.
