This just might become my favorite hotel in Zurich: recently renovated as of 2015, well-maintained building, spacious room with modern facilities, a huge and extremely comfortable bed, clean and fresh air (with modern air conditioning if necessary), a very enjoyable shower - and all of this just minutes from the HB (main train station), or 100m from the tram 3...

I visit Zurich three times a year and for the past 12 years have stayed at the City Hotel, except for two visits in 2014 when the City was closed for refurbishment. That break showed me just what good value the City is as I paid a lot more for less attractive accommodation. One of the pluses at the City... More

On business trip, I chose this hotel for its good location . Indeed . It couldn't" be more centrally located. But beside de location, the hotel is just perfect. Very well decorated , functional . Wonderful bedding , and lovely service. Zurich is not cheap hotel wise but this one is of good value for money.

Was given a smoking room, smell was terrible ...arrived late so was too late (physically couldn't build up the energy) to change When mentioned to the front desk in morning - no care or empathy .. Incredible actually when you think about it. Was told to think ahead next time to avoid smoking room. I won't be thinking ahead because... More

A 3 star hotel with a boring name like "Hotel City" sounds awful, but actually this is one of the best midrange hotels in Zurich. PROS * Great location in Löwenstrasse, near Bahnhofstrasse (where most hotels are expensive) * Attentive service at reception * Cosy and stylish restaurant "Löweneck", nice both in the evening and for breakfast * Great rooms...

Had a lovely stay at the Hotel City Zurich just before NYE. We stopped here as a last minute decision due to the heavy snow fall on our way to Austria stopped us really from going any further. We booked over the phone and the receptionist was lovely and spoke perfect English (as everyone does in CH). We arrived a... More

The hotel is conveniently located 5 minutes away from the train station and is very central, having most of the city within walking distance. Zurich hotels can get pretty expensive and the price was the decision factor for this one. Good surprise, clean room and bathroom which have been recently redone. The room was small but cozy. Only downside would... More

We spent 1 night only at Hotel City Zurich on the way back from a skiing vacation. We came with no expectations as the price was moderate and the facade was not too exciting. A very small entrance and a tiny, if at all , lobby. We faced a warm and professional welcome with kind assistance in finding us a... More

This hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the train station and about a 10 minute walk to the old town. The room and bed are small but not as small as I have seen in other hotels in Europe. Though, the room is comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and were very helpful.
