An acceptable place for the budget traveler. It's a little short on charm, and my room was a bit musty. But everything worked; the breakfast was quite good; and the location simply can't be beat as it is right in the heart of the city just steps from the main train station and the old city.

This is a good basic hotel, good value for money. A few minutes walk from Zurich HB station and the Central tram stops are right outside the door. Room was clean and comfortable. A 2 minute walk from the old town and the area with many restaurants. Very good location. Free Wifi didn't work very well in our room. We... More

This is a typical town centre hotel with most prople only staying a night or two. It is adequate for the purpose and the rooms are clean and fairly spacious. We found the duvets too heavy,. We didn't sample breakfast. At least 8 tram routes stop within feet of the front door. and one stop away from the Main station.... More

The hotel is very spacious and clean. However, there's not wifi in the room and can only connect in the common room. But location wise, it is really very near to the train station. Breakfast was not included and cost 10CHF each, still reasonable.

I give this 5/5, but I note it is not a 5 star hotel. It is rather bare bones, but it serves its purpose excellently. It is close to the railway station (itself a short trip from the airport by train), and you can drag your luggage (over tram lines) to get to it. You cannot get lost because you... More

This hotel located middle of down town. It is very convenience location. Front of this hotel has Coop grocery store and downtown is just walking distance. This hotel has an elevator but so tinny and only one person and suit case get full. We stay 6fth floor and view was pretty good. The breakfast come with it. And there is... More

We took the train from Paris and it was super, 300km hr and 1st class service too. We are converted, the space and ease of travel beats business class air completely. We stopped in Zurich overnight before going on to Vienna by the scenic route (wife's wish). It is 400m from HB railway an easy walk with two trolley suitcases.... More

It is a great location. Just 5 minutes walk from main station which is just a stop away from airport. Nearby is the major shopping street and lots of dinning restuarant for you to choose from. However, the room is abit run down, wifi at lobby is not stable. It can be quite noisy at night. The ambulance is always... More

The Limmathof is a very reasonably priced hotel in a great location. We arrived by train and it took only a few minutes to walk to the hotel (which was also easy to find). The staff were quite friendly and always helpful. The rooms were very basic, but they were also very clean. I knew going in that this is... More
