We stayed in this hotel in Zurich for two nights in early March. It was exactly what we wanted, good quality but not expensive. The room was very clean, comfortable & just the right temperature. It was very central & we used the excellent tram system to see a lot of the beautifl city in the time we ereWe chose... More

I found the manner and the service of the woman receptionist was appalling. We had to leave 2 luggages for going out city sight seeing during the day after checked out which supposed to be a smooth and easy transaction as in normal hotel. Let alone 4 stars hotel as this hotel advertised itself to be. It advertised luggage storage... More

Compared to other hotels in the area we got a cheaper deal at the Hotel Senator and it was a decent enough place. I don't know why you would call it four star which I saw it listed as in some places. But the rooms are clean, we had a balcony, the mini bar was well stocked and the hotel... More

Great hotel!!! Nice room, confort bed, great food at the restaurant! The location is good, quiet place, near from train station and hauptbanhof. If you want, there's a great gym right in front of the hotel. If you need any information, just ask at the reception, they have all the aswers (hehehe!)

This hotel was a good base. A tram stop was just around the corner where if you caught the number 4 tram you could get off at the Silquai stop from where all the tour buses leave. This was also the spot where you could pick up the classic trolley tour and other tours. Or you could continue a few... More

This hotel gives you all you need for an excellent price. Do not expect an upper class hotel with SPA and gym, but a good city accommodation with public transport to bring you in short time anywhere you want, 5 minutes by Tram to the main station and 10 minutes to the Paradeplatz. You will hardly find a similar offer... More

Not worth the four stars it has, it seems as though the last renovations were made a long long time ago. The fact that there were no smoking signs on the hotel rooms was proof enough. The bed was mediocre, the walls very thin. However it seemed clean. The price is probably reasonable for Zurich but quite far off of... More
