Stayed here one night, I had a very warm welcome and found helpful staff. My room was spacious, comfortable and quiet and I particularly liked the fact that the window could be opened to get some fresh air. This was a very convenient location, the only minor criticism was that the breakfast buffet bar is quite small with a limited... More

Pretty efficient business hotel, good efficient service, comfortable rooms, reasonable breakfast buffet service, nice atmosphere in a convenient location, but remember: this is just a business hotel, their restaurant is ok as well.

I stayed at this hotel during a recent business trip to Zurich. The hotel is quite old but generally well-maintained. My room was spacious and reasonably equipped. The location is excellent - very near a train station and a short tram ride from the central train station. The restaurant was fine but quite small and cramped. I was disappointed to... More

Great place to stay! Close to the Train Station named Zurich Enge! 5 min from the Main Train Station Zurich HB by Train. Hotel near Tram & Bus Stop. The Room was confortable, spacious and clean. Very quite and relax. We spent one night in Room 405 (twin beds as requested), 4th floor. The Breakfast was good and continental!

Excellent unpretentious hotel. Helpful front desk staff with great dining recommendations. Helpful with transportation. Small balcony overlooking street. Close to city center and lake. Comfortable well provisioned room. Good bar. Good restaurant. Breakfast included with room. I would definitely return.

This hotel was very distinguished and not too pricey by Swiss standards. A very swish bar. There is little to do in the surrounding area and in this regard its good that it is access the road from the train station. The breakfast was very nice and all the staff very helpful. Beds are on the hard side though!

I'm traveling to Zurich once per year/to years and been around many hotels - those around the center, those closer to the Airport and those outside the town. Ascot was the best one of them it it made me want to come back. I've been there two years ago, during this time of the year (around April, too). The location... More

Hotel Ascot provided me with an excellent base to explore Zurich this weekend. Clean, efficient, friendly, helpful, ideally located (just opposite Bahnhof Enge & 10 mins walk from the main sweep of Zurich, 5 mins from the Lac). It is the FIRST hotel I have stayed in where the bed was comfortable and I managed to sleep for 11 hours... More
