Reaching Zurich main railway station, we reserved a triple room with shared bathroom from the tourist information center The hotel is in the heart of the old town, with the so many surrounding shops, cafes and restaurants. Our room was in the 3rd floor, the rooms were basic but clean the shared bathroom was near the room and ok On... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at the Splendid on our recent trip to Zurich. We had spent an hour walking from door to door to find a hotel and there was either no openings, only slept 2, or were $300 a night. After 24 hours of traveling I was ready to pay the $300 just to have somewhere to take... More

I have stayed here in a single room on at least 3 occasions. It will cost me 64CHF for 1 single night next week. Main advantage is that although this is a cheap, low grade hotel, you can check-in until the bar closes at 2-3am?. In other words, you are not paying for up-market reception, if your flight is late/delayed.... More

One thing, an inexpensive hotel can provide well- is a decent cutover service. I had no expectations of Excellent Customer service from this hotel, as it is relatively inexpensive as compared to other hotels, but TOO expensive for what they provide. 1) Customer Service: I was aggresively shouted at by Mr. Gianni, who works in the bar there as a...

It was a very expensive hotel comparing to the service that this offers. We paid 110 Euros for night, for a double room, including city taxes 2.5. And the most bad, was that they did not accept change, but took 110 euro, instead of 110 franks. The room was clean but the american bar in the first floor, couldnt let... More

The hotel was terrible. No lifts and no showers/wc in the rooms unless you pay extra. It smells of urine and smoke all over the place and inside all rooms. It is NOT CLEAN at all, there were blood stains on the old carpet covered with a towel. The wc's are pretty bad and once you see the people staying... More

Avoid this hotel at all costs despite some of the positive reviews you see here. Yes it is close to the center of Zurich near the river but the place is very run down. After 5pm you have to walk through a bar to enter, drop of keys or collect keys. The bedding was old and unwashed. They give you... More

I didn't sleep well. The hotel has a bar on the ground floor and with a room on the second floor, the live music from below was loud enough to distract. The hotel had a strong smell of cigarette smoke from the bar, although in fairness the room itself didn't smell so much. Normally you visit Switzerland for its fresh... More
