We stayed in the Alexander for 3 nights and found it to be an excellent hotel. It is in a great spot in the old Quarter and walking distance to all the interesting spots. It is centrally positioned for eating , plenty of restaurants and lots to see if you just want to wander. The staff were very helpful, the... More

We arrived late afternoon and after checking in and changing, we headed out into Zurich - Bahnhofsrasse and Niederdorf neighborhoods; Great shopping and food and of course the walk along the river is magical!

Got a great price for this hotel and was very modern and had everything we needed. Room was clean and comfortable and very spacious. There are lots of restaurants and bars around but we didn't hear any noise from the street (and we had a room that faced the street). Free Wifi worked great. Staff were really friendly and checked...

Love to walk everywhere to explore cities. This was the perfect location for us. Got to see the city on foot, and got to the train station in 5 minutes for our trips outside the city.

The hotel is close to the train station (5 to 10 minutes, depending on which streets you take). There are many restaurants and bars near the hotel -- perhaps too many so request a quiet room if you have that option. The bed is quite comfortable and my double room at least was a good size: not large but also... More

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

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
