We stayed at this hotel on Christmas eve. The hotel is located in a quite central square, just a few minutes walk from the main railway station and just 50 meters from the river banks. Our room was huge with a small window which gave us a partial view of the surroundings. The room was in an attic, something that... More

As with most hotels, the rooms never look quite as good as the pictures (that were likely taken when the paint was still wet!), but the Wellenberg has a terrific location and is clean, decently appointed, has a full breakfast, free WiFi and a terrific staff. It's a decent value for the price in Zurich and I would stay there... More

Randomly picked for its location, ti served its purpose very well. It strength is its staff at the reception particularly Kathrin and Humma. Some of the rooms are a little tired but the basics are properly catered for, clean towels, soap, toiletries. Breakfast is adequate in variety and plentiful in quantity and the coffee machine works well. The location is... More

I am staying at this hotel as we speak. I was lured there by the professional photos on their website and on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, my room looks absolutely NOTHING like the photos shown. The website shows colorful, modern suites smartly decorated; my room reminds me of my Italian aunts' apartments in downtown Newark from the 1970s - color scheme and... More

We chose Hotel Wellenberg through our travel agent and were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast at the hotel had the standard spread, but the quality of the food was higher than what you would usually expect (I would recommend the bircher muesli and the eggs). The room was fairly spacious with a king size bed and a fold out sofa. The... More

This hotel is very well located. The Christmas markets were open while we were there and they were literally right outside. The hotel was clean and rooms were good. It was an easy walk to the station and the bahnhofstrasse. Despite other reviews indicating that taxis don't drive up to the hotel, our taxi dropped us at the front door... More

The location was great for exploring the older and central parts of Zurich. We had a room for four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) which was one of the reasons we went for this hotel as getting a two bed room suite is cost prohibitive on family budget so value I think is very good for this city having spent...

The hotel is located in the heart of the old town and many sights are nearby. Trendy stores surround this hotel and good cafes and restaurants nearby. However, do note that you can't drive up to the hotel as it is situated along a walking street. If you have heavy luggages, I would suggest that you deposit the luggage at... More
