The Hotel Sunnehus is a delightful, small hotel near the ETH and the University of Zurich. A ten-minute walk puts you in the heart of the city, and the no. 10 tram takes you to and from the airport in thirty minutes. Modestly priced, by Zurich standards, the Sunnehus is nonetheless an attractive, comfortable place to stay, with a friendly,... More

I had to do business in that area of the city, so this was a great place to be. Close to downtown, maximum 10 minutes from the main train station, ETH... Good service, still using those old key lock. It seems all rooms are different. Mine did the job but did not really impressed me. Staff is great and helpful.... More

First time in Zurich: stayed for 4 nights. Big thanks to Rafael & the other gentleman both of whom were very helpful during my stay and made it a lot easier to find my bearings around Zurich. My room was clean & comfy, with very good internet connection and the hotel facilities were just enough for my trip. Would recommend... More

Had the chance to stay last week for a few nights. Great hotel in a great location. Convenient to ETH and trams and close to the polibahn as well. Breakfast was typical for this type of hotel with meats and cheese. Good coffee. My only warning is that the elevator is very very small. Only big enough for one person... More

The hotel would be reasonable in the cooler months (all containing an r.) Do NOT stay at this hotel in the summer. No air-conditioning, completely useless fans-- and you will stay awake not only from the heat but from the noise of the helicopters from the nearby hospital. Uncomfortable bathroom-- kiddie-size sink, mini shower where the water pressure and temp... More

I found the Sunnehus a delightful little hotel though the rooms are quite small and there was no toilet in my room- it was private but in the hall. The breakfast area is nicely decorated and the menu was varied to my usual--small breakfast-- habits. The best part was when I asked for coffee with milk and they brought me... More

The hotel is quite nice. Very close to the hospital (5 min walk) but not too far from old town (8-10min walk). There is good wifi in the room. Breakfast was ok: bread, yogurt, eggs, fruit, ... but not too much variety. Too bad not hot water kettle in the room.

I have stayed in Sunnehus several times, every time I enjoyed my stay. Most of the rooms are spacious (try to get a corner room!). Very clean, high quality throughout. The staff are friendly, and they serve a very nice breakfast. The location is quiet, near the ETH, yet within walking distance to Niederdorf and Bahnhofstrasse.

I stayed here for one night in October 2012 while visiting colleagues at the near by university. I found the room comfortable, clean and quiet and the morning breakfast the pretty standard fare I've had at similar European hotels. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. Compared to other hotels I've stayed at while in Zurich... More

This is a good hotel which I have stayed in twice as a guest of ETHZ. The hotel is also walking distance from the river and shopping streets. The rooms appear recently renovated and are very clean. Everything is "just so" at breakfast. As usual with Swiss hotels the construction is solid and noise is not a problem, also the... More
