This small hotel was the perfect location in old town Zurich. We walked everywhere! Our room was on the fifth floor and quite large. It was a very quiet visit. Breakfast selection was good. Only complaint was the bar closed fairly early. We are night owls so that was a bummer.

The hotel is well located, and the staff from reception was nice and helpful, but you should be careful if you book a STANDARD room, because it has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with what they offer on the website, just see the pictures that we took. The room was horrible...the extra bed was broken...we complained and they changed it, but... More

We saw this hotel on our last visit to Zurich and decided to stay here because of the central location. It also had a family room which saved us booking two rooms . Although google maps tells you its a short 20 min walk from the train station, just remember you have to carry and roll your luggage over the... More

It is a little bit hard to find if you visit Zurich by car. It is located in the middle of a pedestrian area. But once you know where it is you are allowed to drive the hotel to drop your luggage and then bring your car to a public parking. The hotel is located next to a square with... More

We spent a night here during an exploratory trip. The lobby is very bare and basic, front desk people were friendly though. Our Superior room was disappointing compared to the Photoshopped pictures: colors were not nice (greenish, blueish, beigish); the bathroom was kind of old (the sink tap was really hard to open and close); no air conditionning, just an...

We stayed a week here on the 5th floor. It was a nice stay. Katrina greeted us with her great smile and gave us good directions There were water and apples for us on arrival. We borrowed their umbrella for the week because it rained every day (20 CHF deposit). The location was very good and easy to find from... More

One cannot ask for a better location that the Wellenberg, right in the centre amongst other hotels and cafes and shops in the heart of Zurich. If you are flush with money one can take a taxi from the airport to the hotel but this will cost between 63 and 67 CHF for a 12 km ride! I know I... More

We stayed a couple nights at Hotel Wellenberg. The location was perfect. It is in the "old Zurich" area which we preferred. Restaurants, shopping, and close proximity to rail were excellent. Complimentary breakfast was very nice with plenty of seating. There is no air conditioning and the bed had no blanket layers to remove separately as the heat increased. A... More

Coming from Miami, this was our 1st hotel in Switzerland on our honeymoon. It's right downtown and walkable distance to everything like food, museums and train! Small, clean, modern, and free breakfast which was American but yummy ;) no pool....

Excellent location. Staff friendlly and helpful specially Elvira at the front desk and Ana at the breakfast lounge. Large variety at breakfast. The room was very comfortable with a desk and small table with two chairs. Large windows with nice view to a patio. The hotel is approximately a ten minute walk from the train station. Definately would stay here... More
