The room was typical size for Europe - pretty small. But, the bed was fairly comfortable. The room had AC, which isn't always the case in Europe. My room was at the back of the hotel where there are number of bars and restaurants, so with the window open it was a little noisy late into the evening. The breakfast... More

It is located in the old town area 7 minutes from the train station. Lots of restaurants nearby, very convenient. Hotel rooms are large, beds comfortable and disdainful cent amenities unlike most of the other hotels we had experienced. Not really sure about the graffiti decor but the room we had was great. Breakfast was great and a glass of... More

We spent 2 days, one night in Zurich on our way via train to Italy. This hotel might be overlooked by most because its location does not directly over look the river Limmat but it was a nice quiet place to stay, clean, modern, and a good price value. The polybahn electric lift to the upper town is a must... More

Nice hotel at an excellent location, very suitable for a short stay in Zurich. Rooms are well equipped, clean, but smelled like someone had been smoking in the room (in a non smoking room). Nevertheless good value for money!

What this hotel lacks in amenities and space, it makes up with chic and clean rooms, moderate prices by Zurich standards and a central, but quiet location. It may be worth mentioning that one block away from the hotel, there are a few women of a certain profession visibly waiting for customers at night (however, nothing about the area is... More

We unfortunately only had one night in Zurich, but it was well spent at the Hotel Rutli. I had originally booked the Adler Hotel, but they cancelled on us with only a couple of weeks to go so it was a scramble to find something else quickly. Luckily I found the Hotel Rutli and I am very glad we did.... More

We have stayed here many times and have always enjoyed it. But rooms vary a lot in size and that was our (fairly minor) gripe as it did not measure up to previous visits. The previous two or three times, our room and bathroom were large by Zurich standards and certainly large for this price range as this hotel is... More

Like many Zurich three-star hotels, Sorell Rutli is smallish, tastefully decorated, and well appointed. It is located at the edge of the city centre, less than ten minutes to Central Station and just over ten to the famed Bahnhofstasse. At night the area can be a bit noisy, both from people and traffic. Breakfast is adequate. Staff are efficient. Overall... More
