Zurich is famous for being an expensive destination. So finding an affordable yet quality hotel in the heart of this beautiful city can be a tough task. Well we’ve done the hard work for you in discovering this little gem! Firstly, there’s the location. Being on the edge of the old part of town, there’s no shortage of restaurants, great... More

It's supposed to be a 3 star hotel but in US standards, I would say it borders 2 stars.. Hotels in Europe are often expensive and small so I guess that's what you can expect...just be prepared to be underwhelmed for what you pay (I paid nearly $200/night - I can do much better in the US properties for the...

Dear Guest We would like to thank you for having taken the time to share your personal impressions. We regret to read that we did not perform up to your expectations. Zurich is usually very fully booked in the month of June due to various congresses and events taking place and this causes higher rates in the whole town however... More

We have stayed in Zurich four previous times over many years. This was our first stay in the Hotel du Theatre. We were intrigued by the architecture and style. The hotel is convenient to the train station and to the tram stops. It is also very close to the old town district. The hotel is modern, clean, and bright. Staff... More

Yes, I agree the hotel and the rooms look cute, and quite artsy. However, at least the single room, is one of the smallest ones I have ever being to (along with another one in NY). I would say you should pass if you have claustrophobic tendencies. The bed is pasted to the wall, which is not nice. There is... More

We enjoyed the features of our room (A/C worked well, lighted closet, TV, etc), the breakfast buffet was excellent, if a little pricey, and the staff was very helpful in providing us with a Swiss electrical adapter (different from Germany, Czech Republic or Austria plugs). They also helped us arrange a taxi for our trip to the airport. The hotel... More

I really like this hotel. I have stayed here twice and although the rooms are small, they are all individual and sparkling clean. The location is fantastic, right by the street where all restaurants are bars are. If you want to take the boat trip around the lake (1.5 hours for the short trip), you can walk from the hotel...

Stayed here for a night on our way to Venice. Great location near the station and lots of restaurants nearby for an evening meal. Rooms were great for a nights stay, very clean and comfortable with good sized bathrooms and no noise at night. Breakfast was good and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definately recommend.

Chose this hotel after reading best way to return to France from Venice on day trains (man in seat 61). Location is perfect, minutes from the station. Rooms are compact but perfect for overnight stop over and as someone else stated, chic. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Great location near the Bahnhoff (8 minutes with cases and walking). The hotel was a cinema and so it's decorated with that sort of memorabilia.
