Normally it is impossible to stay in Zurich for less than about 200 francs per night - and if you can find a room for less than CHF 100, it is the sort of place that would rent by the hour. Gertrudestrasse Guesthouse is therefore really special: a solid 3-4 star accomodation at a 2-star price. They save money by... More

I will never book a hotel room with Venere.com They bump up the price and consequently you do not pay what has been quoted at the time of booking. I recommend anyone to book with Booking.com as you always pay what is quoted. Nothing more, nothing less. If you are expecting a good night sleep then do not book a... More

This hotel is situated in a quiet area, 5min walk from the animated Langstrasse. It is well furnished, quiet and very clean. I have read some reviews before, so to be clear, this is not a place to spend your day or cook with your family, it's a place to sleep. How can they make it so cheap ? Thre's... More

This guesthouse has a perfect Location downtown Zurich, and perfect for a Budget traveller, as rates are really very interesting. But even if you pay few Money, you could expect that : - the lamps are working - the place is tidy - the promised fridge is working All of above Points were the case and I would not go... More

True that is half the price of any other room you can find in Zurich, and this should say a lot. Nonetheless the pictures showed nice studios with kitchen, spacious rooms and toilet. Well I am now in a room which is about 9 sqm (incl. bathroom), which has no kitchen, facing the parking place so I cannot open the... More

User review: Be aware WI-Fi Non existent over 5 days. This was really very poor as this was my main reason for choosing this apartment. Had iPads so plug in internet useless. Glass table broken - could not put anything on it for fear of it falling. Towels very small and not changed in 5 days. There were no glasses,... More

There are only two parking spots dedicated to the 4 story guesthouse. No wonder they are all occupied. I tried calling customer service (since there is no reception) to find out where else I could park and at first I was told that there are no parking facilities (even though on the reservation it says - parking available) and then...

Lovely and clean place with nice decor. Only wished they had a kettle! Good value for Zurich even if we have to get a tram into the town centre. Also there is no reception and you have to get the key from a safe. Very different to us but good fun trying to find the safe.

This hotel room was excellent in allways, I slept in a double room, very clean, wooden floors, plasma TV with loads of channels, very new and modern power shower. It is a rare gem at the price. The location was perfect for me. If you need a safe and not too fancy area, then book this hotel.
