There were many good things about the hotel such as a fantastic location and view of funicular railway both from room and breakfast. The staff were nice and decor interesting and a really good place to stay. The only negative was the room itself which was a bit small and far too warm and we were unable to cool it... More

We arrived before 11am, pretty exhausted after a long-haul flight, hoping to be able to at least just drop our luggage so we could start exploring (and try to stay awake!). But reception very kindly told us to sit and wait a minute while our room was made up, and we could then check-in immediately. So kind! Our room was... More

This hotel in central Zurich is very convenient for the train station, being just a 5 minute walk away. As you leave the station, just walk over the river bridge and you will see Starbucks to your right. The hotel is just behind Starbucks. The reception area is small, as are the bedrooms and ensuite, but they have everything that... More

We were travelling by train and it was a 5 min stroll from the station. Funky hotel with decent breakfasts and great location for visiting Zurich. Friendly staff - would definitely stay there again for an overnight or weekend break.

The hotel was nice (clean, had what I needed); however, it states that the rooms have "cooling systems" when in actuality, it's a very, very low fan on the baseboard under the window. Barely moves the air and it's not Air Conditioning. I was there when it was 90 degrees and the room was unbearable. They brought up a fan,... More

Dear tlbogue Thank you for your honest feedback about your stay. We appreciate every feedback. It is true we only have AC in higher room categories like Mini Suite and Deluxe room. The temperature in Zurich was extraordinary hot (38°C). In our economy single rooms, like you stayed in, we only have the ventilation system. Thank you one more time... More

We booked as it we close to the station and public transport spent 3 nights there and would recommend. Nice bars and Restaurants just down the road. Very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. You can ask for a fan for your room as there is no aircon as per swiss law.

The hotel was very closely located to the station and the market area. Starbucks is just round the corner. Location could not be better than this, esp if you prefer to walk or take the tram. Room size was pretty small, just enough to "fit" 2 people, but that was not a problem for us as we stayed for just... More

I booked this because it was close to the station and the old city but I was so surprised at the architectural interest. It is a 5 minute flat walk from the station. Less than 5 minutes to lots of good cafes and restaurants. About 10 minute walk to the main art gallery. I was early but after 36 hours... More

Dear Pushba In the name of the entire Team of the Hotel du Theatre we like to say: „thank you for your review!” Yes, our hotel is not a typical building for a hotel. Our city hotel was built in the 1950s along with a boulevard theatre. Today, the theatre is listed as a protected monument and is home to... More

Lovely Hotel. Fabulous clean modern rooms. Lovely location just 5 minutes from the tram/train station. Lots of places nearby. Only spent one night on way through to Italy but would recommend this 100%

I stayed at the hotel for a business trip. It was a good stay. You are at a good location. It takes you half an hour from the airport to the hotel and about 1 minutes to walk.
