4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The room was huge and so were the beds. The mattresses are probably a bit too hard for some people. The reception and the staff were very friendly and efficient. Only at breakfast it sometimes took quite a while before you were offered some coffee. A coffee machine might be a worth while investment. Sometimes there was salmon and champagne... More

Hotel rooms are very spacious (especially by European standards), clean, and modern. Great location to the river, lake, Old town, restaurants, and the train station (around 5 minute walk). You can walk a circle from the hotel to the lake along both sides of the river and see all of the major tourist attractions. Despite all of the positives I... More

I stayed here for work, which required regular train trips. So its location close to the main train station was excellent. It is right by the old town with so many choices for eating. The staff were friendly, and the room upgrade to a large (by European standards) corner room was really appreciated. Being able to access a complementary breakfast... More

The hotel is in a convenient location in the centre of Zurich and in good walking distance to the Old Town with a number of restaurants. I stayed there for a night before flying out the following day. Central Train Station is only 5 min walk away and the tram stop is pretty much at the door step, very good... More

I was in Zurich for a couple of days and I really enjoyed my staying here. It is a good positioned hotel, with very nice and cosy rooms. Plus the staff is so friendly, I have never seen such a friendly and lovely staff. Great place, I definitely recommend it if you come to Zurich and need a cosy room... More

A nice small hotel close to the main railway station. The tram station Central is a few meters away and the hotel is at the entrance of the old city. The rooms are nice and big and the Ruetli-Hotel people are super friendly and help wherever they can. For me it's one of the great places in Zurich.

This was a small hotel and rooms a little bit basic. I had a single bed, a first for a long time and for someone who is over 2 metres tall, a bit small! It was quite warm in Zurich and the room had a rather antiquated air con system which was noisy and not very efficient. Breakfast was simple... More

First off, let me start by saying that both the hotel and the location are excellent. You are almost directly across the street from the central station in Zurich and walking distance to several attractions. It's also a good value, considering how expensive Zurich is. Now for the warning..when I booked the reservation (through a popular website that starts with... More

The property was clean and well laid out in a pleasant but quirky design. The reception was manned 24 hours by staff who spoke English. The room was adequate but certainly not spacious and all facilities worked fine. The TV was excellent with a few English channels.
