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

Reasonably priced hotel located in center of town near the train station. Although basic, I liked the rooms and the quality of the bedding. The hotel staff were cordial and answered all my questions about touring the city. I did not try the breakfast. I would recommend this place for all budget minded travelers. Please note: Zurich is a very... More

Easy to find - it's just over the river fro the central station. Busy place but welcoming and efficient. Room was rather hot (on a late October night) despite turning off the radiator. Price was reasonable by Zurich standards. There's a vegetarian restaurant on site but our stay was very brief so we didn't try it.

The Limmathof is very reasonably priced in a City that went crazy. Also it is in the best possible location. The entire Hotel is perfectly adequate though not luxurious. For very budget conscious travelers it even still has a few small rooms without bath (no space). Maybe the fact that internet is only available in the lounge is a little... More

Hotel prices in Zurich (actually, ALL prices in Zurich) can be exorbitant, so it's nice to find a well-located hotel that will not drive you to the poor house. The rooms were quite sparse which is not a big problem for me. The bed quality was well below average. Bathroom was good. Cleanliness was OK. There is WIFI only in... More

Just a little too basic for me. But an excellent location and great value for Zurich. The staff was helpful and the hotel very convenient for the railway station and airport taxi rank. Clean and functional. No air conditioning or WiFi (except in the lounge. Would consider staying again to save money. Othewise, would spend more for more comfort.

I used to stay at the Limmathof in the 1980s before graduating onto better establishments that I could well-afford. Chose to go back for two nights at short notice and was reminded of why I elected to move to more upscale places. This is about as basic as it gets. My first room was so hot, even with the windows...

We stayed two days in this hotel we were so impressed by the Hotels cleanliness, location, food and service that hospitality and staff are very friendly ready to help any time and The location is perfect. You will be about half way between the train station and the main city center.

the key advantage of this hotel is that it is the close to the main station. Rooms basic and no air conditioning but they did supply a fan in the heatwave. Breakfast goodand friendly service Each morning
