Good spacious room with comfortable beds, clean bathroom with good shower, nice sunny balcony with seating and table and chairs in the room, adequate wardrobe space. It was easy to use the code to access the room key. The neighbourhood is lively and fun with nice bars, restaurants and cafes. Easy to get to Zurich main city by tram (10... More

I booked by mistake 2 days to many and phoned strait away to the hotel and sent an email and still had to pay for it. If they had a service it could have been put back on the internet and if no one was found, charge me. On my arrival I found a full rubbish bin with used sanitary... More

In case you are looking for a great bargain in goold old Zürich in a nice and quiet neighbourhood Gertrud guesthouse is the place to be. This reception free lodging is perfectly organized (did you expect anything else in Switzerland?), clean, adequately furnished. Even the internet access was simple to use and included in the price. From my perspective a... More

Guesthouse in a quiet area without reception, to get in You have to enter a code you receive by e-mail together with Your booking confirmation. Obviously breakfast is not included but nearby there are bar and minimarket not expensive. My room was big and clean with private bath, minibar (empty), tv. I paid € 172,00 for two nights at the...

Booked a two bedroom apartment with these folks via Booking.com. Yes, the price is great but what I really wanted was an apartment where we (husband, late teen children and I) could relax after a day of touring. Imagine our shock when we arrived to find the our two bedroom apartment was not an apartment at all. It was a... More

An odd one this; as mentioned in other reviews, there is no reception and entry is by keying in your booking reference. Facilities are restricted to a very large room, beds, table and chair, tv and bathroom. Modern and in good condition, but almost a look into the future where there is no human contact and everything automated. Not for... More

This was a nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel located about 2 miles from the Zurich train station and a couple of blocks off a tram line. However, it requires self check-in and the process could be cumbersome. The check-in process requires you to have the last five digits of your hotel booking number to be entered into a lock-box mechanism... More

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
