Very good location, when arriving to see the city or do business for just a 2-3days. Close to the Main Train Station (also recommended to take a train if coming by plain + trips in Zurich proximity / Switzerland), in the historical city, sites around and lots of bars & restaurants. get prepared for good level of street noise, but...

Very close to the station- just around the corner if you go out of the right exit. Very clean and modern rooms (think feature walls, dark wood floors etc). Service at the desk was friendly and efficient. We paid 130£ for 2 people plus breakfast which is very good as we had looked at other places in Zurich and this... More

I had a perfect stay (1 night) at the Sorell Rürli hotel, without any complain & at a reasonable price (about CHF 110). Rütli is not only the mountain meadow, where according to legend Switzerland was founded by oath, but also the name of a medium size ***Hotel in the core of "Little Big City". pro: - price, - super...

Good: very clean, nice continental breakfast, well situated, quiet, comfortable, nespresso machines in each room, bathrooms spacious Bad: coffee machine in one room did not work, heated towel rail also did not work. We were only here for one night so wasn't a big deal. As always we enjoy it!

Third time Staying here. Room 201 is our favorite, but since 215 is re-done, that may be our new favorite. The rooms are spacious and quite accommodating. Staff is excellent, friendly and speaks English very well. They assist you as needed and can explain most all needs. This is a boutique style hotel, therefore the individual attention to detail is...

Spent one night at this nice place. Great location (very close to train station). Rooms are very small but clean, modern and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and breakfast was good. What can I say more? Why is there a minimum of 200 words? I have nothing more to say ;-)

The one thing that upsets me with hotels in Europe is they claim star status but when you look at the amenities they are simply not there. Hotels is Switzerland really need to learn a few lessons in hospitality and comfort from India or south East Asia in general. The hotel was clean, stark and comfortable - basically what I... More
