After coming out the wrong end of the main train and being directed to jump on the number 4 tram, we easily found the hotel, but not the reception. At the moment it is next door, whilst the normal reception is being renovated. We were delighted with our triple room... It was surprisingly large. The bathroom had everything you needed.... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights in January at Hotel Alexander. The rooms are small, but are modern and well thought out from an efficiency perspective; unless you're planning on spending a lot of your waking hours in the room, this should not be an issue (as there is a lot to see in Zurich!). WiFi speed was... More

Dear Mr. Elmo_Aus Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a nice feedback. It satisfies us greatly that you have had an enjoyable stay at the Hotel Alexander.

The hotel is located at a great spot, in the center of Zurich and just a few minutes walk from the train station (approx. 5-7 minutes walk with luggage from train station). It is clean and recently renovated with very friendly staff. The breakfast was good, with good variety. The room was a bit small but was comfortable and had... More

Picked this hotel at last minute through hotels.com. Short walk across the river from Zurich main train station to the 'old town'. Apparently this used to be a red light district but apart from a couple of obvious 'hostels', this is now a very quaint part of town. Hotel reception was a little out dated but the room was excellent... More

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.

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.

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
