The room I reserved was a 15 meter square room it said on my confirmation. And on the pictures it appeared to look at least like 15 meters. The truth was, they zoomed in on the pictures and the room size was 10 square meters maximum. It was cramped and claustrophobic. The only window overlooked a row of balconies where... More

we had a terrible night at this hotel. When we were sleeping in our room a man came into our room at midnight and wanted to sleep in our room. The hotel does not have any camera and security system, the doors' locks are in an old fashion that no hotel use it todays. The hotel manager was a very... More

The rooms were clean. The triple room is definitely bigger for a family of three. The twin room is rather small. But if you want to just dump your stuff and come back to sleep and take a shower, it doesnt matter. What matters is that this hotel is in the heart of the city, quite nearby to most shopping...

At first, it's definetly not a four star hotel. But it's clean and the location is ok. It was a bit noisy because of the bars in the street and the traffic on the road. Comparing the room price with the prices in Zürich general, I have to say it's good value for the money.

Stayed 2 nights at the Senator on my final 2 days of my Swiss Holiday. Zurich was packed and my usual Hotels in Zurich were full or charging a 100chf more per night. It was the perfect time to give the Senator a try. The Hotel and Room was basic, but provided what we needed. The Beds were firm, the... More

We stayed there in December 2014. The hotel is near the main train station. Lake Zurich is within wasy access. The tram station is few minutes' walk from the hotel. The room was neat. The staff were friendly and helpful when we asked for information and directions.

I stayed in Senator for a day when I was touring Switzerland, the hotel is 10 mts walking distance from Zurich Hartbrucke station and the hotel staff is extremely courteous and helpful. The only flipside is rooms are too small, but is just sufficient for a family of 3. Breakfast spread is really good and staff is extremely co-operative and... More

We stayed in this hotel when we arrive Zurich for our visit to Swiss. It is decent and has good connectivity to the city centre. There is a Tram station near and it is walkable. However, they refused to provide us the early check-in though requested for one. Hence, we waited for quite some time to get our room. Food... More
