I have stayed three nights in this hotel and it was a good experience. Hotel Limmathof has an excellent location in the centre of the city so all the points of interest are on walking distance. The staff is friendly and the hotel is very clean. Wifi is gratis in the lounge . The rooms are rather expensive but I'm... More

My room was small but adequate. One single bed, nice size bathroom and a small work desk. The tv was small and English channels limited to BBC news and CNN. But, the location is great right across the canal from the main train station. Sleep was good with an interior room.

While my visits to this hotel were some years ago it would seem that all recent reviews describe this hotel as I remember it. Certainly its location is ideal. It was always comfortable and clean, service was excellent. Like another writer I arrived rather late but was received without fuss. I also found it just a short distance from the... More

I supposed you would consider this a budget hotel in Zurich terms. The single room is clean and comfortable, if a bit sparse. The best thing about the hotel is the location - you can see it from the main train station if you know where to look.

I stayed here for two nights in December. Hotels (& most things) in Zurich are very expensive. Hotel Limmathof was reasonably priced, clean and centrally located - walking distance to Zurich HB (central staton) and close to plenty of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. I didn't find the noise to be an issue but I am a fairly heavy sleeper.... More

The hotel is simple but has all the essential comforts; heating was perfect, bathroom was nice. The real positive thing is the location, close to the central station and to the street of the shops. Moreover, supermarket is nearby and wifi is free. Good value for your money, considering that you are in Switzerland.

This no frills hotel is in a nice location close to the central train station, and the price is right for a last minute trip. The rooms are nothing special and the wifi doesn't really work. The beds are adequate at best, but I'm sure I couldn't have slept on it for more than one night after fewer than four... More

The main appeal of this hotel is it wonderful location. It is 1 block from the Hauptbahnhof and convenient to everything in the old downtown area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but on the small side. This hotel is an excellent value, especially considering the location. WiFi is available in the lobby area but the signal is weak in...

We stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is quite near the train station, Zurich HB, and not difficult to find. There are supermarket, buses and trams nearby. There's Starbucks beside it and a street full of restaurants. The room is clean and has a toilet. The staffs were very friendly too. However, it can be quite noisy at night... More
