based on a recommendation by a German friend, we stayed here for a few days in both the Design Single Room and Design Double Room. It's a clean and well-appointed hotel, with a very nice and discreet Birch garden, which is uncommon in Zurich's city centre hotels. I liked its stark austere look (very instagrammable, if that's important to you!).... More

We spent one night at the Greulich Hotel and based on the hotel alone wished we had stayed for at least two nights in Zurich. We stayed in a Loft Apartment with two adults and two children and were very impressed with not only the spacious size of the apartment but the large windows and the view from the apartment.... More

Finding a decent hotel in Zurich for an affordable price is very often a huge challenge. Zurich simlply is expensive if you do not earn your salary in Switzerland. So far the hotels I like most in Zurich are the FourPoints by Sheraton and the 25hours Zurich West, where I stayed several times. This time both hotels were fully booked,... More

They've got a good thing at the Greulich with its modern design and environmental consciousness. The concrete construction and all rooms opening in to a court yard actually remind you a little of a prison cell block, but the walk to and from the court yard is pleasant, the staff extremely helpful, the food is great - it all fits...

I found this hotel to be relatively cheap compared to the other options in Zurich and looking at the location, decided to book it. Quite easy to get to from the train station, just 5 stops on Bus 31 and a 5 minute walk then. Check in was a breeze with the very pleasant lady who speaks very good english... More

Nicely done hotel on the edge of Zurich's downtown. It has an understated laid-back design and attracts a bit of a hipper (but not young) crowed. The rooms are in a sort of bungalow style straight line, all on the ground floor. The cafe is pleasant and draws some non-guests on it's porch for a coffee/drink as well. There's even... More

Great hotel in a good location for going out and exploring the city. Nice relatively spacious rooms and a good restaurant. But best of all were the staff. All were very friendly, helpful and professional. I will definitely stay here again when visiting Zurich.

This is our second time at the hotel and once again we enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and quiet. The modern decor is interesting with a minimalist, though comfortable, atmosphere. Our only complaints are: no air conditioning, not a problem in May, and the breakfast buffet is limited and expensive, 21€... More
