About 10 minutes walk from the main train station and located within the old town of Zurich, we found this hotel to be clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room had a universal power adaptor which was really handy - be warned that Swiss power points are not the same as European ones!

I asked Tripadvisor for a reasonable, safe hotel near the Central Train Station in Zurich and I read reviews here. I picked the Hotel Alexander and got exactly what I was looking for in Central Zurich. We could walk and pull our luggage from the train and then walk a couple of blocks and catch public transportation all over this... More

With less than 12 hours to explore Zurich and need to get quality sleep this hotel was perfect. It was very reasonably priced for quality and location.

We took a quick, spur-of-the-moment trip to Zurich. Considered renting from AirBnB, but after reading Rick Steve's book on Zurich decided to try this hotel and were not disappointed. We requested a quiet room as the hotel is in a trendy bar/shop/cafe area, and it was perfect. New sound-blocking windows, small but cute -and o so clean!- bathroom and a... More

My mother and I stayed at the Alexander Hotel for one night in March during our trip to Zürich. The location was perfect: just five minutes from the central station in the heart of the Old Town, within walking distance from some of the nicest shops, cafés and restaurants. It is very close to the Storchen area and to Banhofstrasse,... More

I had a great time staying in this small but perfectly situated hotel. The rooms have been perfectly renovated and although small they are well appointed. The noise from the pedestrian street can be a bit annoying at night but it didn't bother me too much. No restaurant on site for dinner but it's right in the middle of everything... More
