Hotel Alexander is perfectly located in Zurich; right downtown in the old part of town within walking distance of all the major sites and piers for lake boat rides. There is a very good restaurant across the street and your typical Italian Gelatio ice cream (they make good pasta and pizzas too) next door. Note, this is not a 4... More

I really like this hotel, the room is small, but is very clean and cozy, the design is so functional. The location is very good, it is close to train station and shopping. The breakfast has a lot of choice and taste good. By the way, the restaurants beside it is also good, not sure if they are the same... More

The location is very good. You can easily walk to most of the places you would want to go in central Zurich. The price is very reasonable (for Zurich). The rooms are snug..... but clean and functional. Same for the bath. Breakfast is good. It's not fancy or luxury....... but it works very well for a few day's stay in... More

It's a bit like a premier inn or travel lodge (uk hotels), with little to offer other than rooms and breakfast room. However the place is clean and tidy, and actually a nice little hotel in a really convenient location. I've been staying here for work regularly for the last few months and going to stay so longer still. They've... More

We stayed at hotel Alexander for one night, but we'd love to spend longer time there. A perfect place to recharge our batteries! It's located in the middle of everything: the old town, by the river, in a lively restaurant- and shopping street, a 5-10 minutes walk from the train station. It's amazingly quiet considering it's location. The bed was... More

The hotel was located in the heart of the city, which was a huge plus, the free high speed internet was again no problem. I really liked the stay there. The elevator was quite small, but the building is not that high, so there stairs are a good option too.
