I recently stayed for three nights at the Hotel Alexander. It was a perfect place to stay, central and handy to everything. We stayed in one of the recently renovated twin rooms in the hotel. Clean, comfortable, great value. It's not luxurious, but neither is the price. The staff were always friendly and helpful, and spoke excellent English. Breakfast was... More

We really liked this hotel a lot. The room was very nice and there was room to move around. The air conditioning was so nice, especially at night. The location was central and we walked forever all over Zurich. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant and the food was very good. We would stay here again.

I didn't stay in this hotel but I had an experience which I feel is worth noting. I arrived in Zurich 22nd October 2014 at 9:30pm on a Tuesday night. I have been travelling all this year but the accommodation I had been expecting this night had fallen through. I had no choice but to go into the city of... More

In fairness to the Hotel Alexander, this was our last hotel during our stay in Switzerland and our "cheapest". As they say, you get what you pay for...and we did. We had a tiny, clean room. Bathroom was very clean and tiny as well (shower curtain because it was too small for any glass doors). Breakfast was adequate. The staff... More

This lovely little hotel is waking distance from the Central Zurich train station and right in the heart of the old town. Restaurants and shopping are all around us and with the river only one block away all the best sights of Zurich are close by. The rooms are small but very comfortable and well-equipped, a real breakfast is included,... More

Dear Melanie You’ve been able to benefit from our central location which is quite a good thing. Many points of interest are within spitting distance. The narrow alleyways are full of life. Noise levels are sometimes somewhat higher and that is the reason why we have decided to retrofit our windows with special noise control. Our point is that our... More

My family has stayed at the Hotel Alexander for years. The staff is hospitable and genuine, the rooms are always clean, comfortable, and well appointed (wifi works great!), and the location is close to everything in old town Zurich. Plus it's very reasonably priced. Their Guesthouse option is an even better bargain and just as comfortable as the main hotel,... More
