The hotel faces one of the main walk streets of Zurich. The staff was excelent and helped us a lot with some inquiries. But we found the place more like a hostel, and the location would be perfect for those who want to be in the middle of the fuzz. Good breakfast. We left the city one day earlier than... More

I had a great stay at the Hotel Alexander in summer 2014. The room was recently renovated, modern and exceptionally clean. And the stay got better and better each day as I experienced the wonderful service this hotel has to offer. The staff were very impressive. I booked a single room which was perfectly fine for 1 person. I asked... More

Spent one night at the Alexander because of its proximity to Zurich's central station, where I had to catch an early morning train. I had room on top floor on the interior, courtyard side, so didn't hear any street noise (which is a good thing, since the hotel sits on a busy pedestrian street in the heart of the tourist... More

I'm here during the heat wave and thankfully they have air conditioning. It's not perfect like in the USA (I live in FL and must have AC.). I specifically requested a low floor and it has been pretty cool. Even some of the more expensive hotels near by don't have AC and I see folks with their windows open. I... More

The Hotel Alexander has many fine points. Air conditioning, proximity to the train station, clean efficient rooms. Unfortunately, the location also works against it because the bar and nightclub crowd party all night and make significant noise out in the street. I was awakened numerous times during the night and did not feel like I had a good night's sleep.... More
