The Hotel is located in an normal neighborhood of Zurich, but really close to Hardbrucke Train station and just 3 walk from Tram stop. The price of the hotel is not truly honest regarding the room quality and general hotel overview. The breakfast costs 22 CHF (18 EUR), which according to my opinion is really expensive, related to the offered... More

It is not in the city center but only block away from Tram station and 4 stops you are in Zurich Train station. Hotel is VERY clean, well maintained. staff very helpful. Price is low compare to Zurich standard.

First the negative, second the positive: First time in Zurich, the hotel charged me 2 times the same amount, because when you book online they block your account, and when I was there they charged me again. When I got home I contacted the hotel and someone from the front desk replied with a broken english, I could not understand... More

Direct tram line into the center of the old town and main station. It runs very often and it is not expensive at all (one of the very few inexpensive things in this city) The hotel is a pretty dated one. It says 4 stars but well... when you get to the lobby you start thinking that you made a... More

The Senator is a thirteen in a dozen hotel with no exposure in a neighborhood with the same qualification. The standard double room is small, outdated and boring. There was enough coffee for the Nespresso machine for all days. Unfortunately the coffee it produced was not really hot. The shower in the room is perfect and so are the beds.... More

The price for this place goes down on weekends. It is by no means 4 star quality in the rooms, though they were spotlessly clean. the staff were friendly and nice. An easy tram ride from the train station. The bathroom was on the smallish side. the rooms in the back have a nice view but on saturday night you... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night, and that was enough. The area where it is located is sort of out of the way. The hotel itself is a decent value for the money, but nothing to "write home about." It is only adequate for a short stay in Zurich.

This was a good example of how meaningless the star ratings are, and, by the way, the Trip Advisor recommendation, on the front door, proudly displayed. I booked this place over the internet, counting on at least minimum comfort, as befits the 4 star rating. We were given a room on the 4th floor, measuring 9 X 12' plus a... More

The hotel is well appointed and provides an okay breakfast. The eggs and tomatoes were top notch. This hotel is a short tram ride from the city (train station) or a 20 minute walk. Unfortunately the two of us have never had a worse night sleep. The linen was too heavy for the autumn season and the bed had an... More
