Stayed here for 3 nights. Location worked well for us as it is only 1.2kms from the main streets with great food options. Across the street from a convience store (preferred the Co - op however) and near the train station. Some posts say the area is unsafe, we didn't find this and the noise level was acceptable considering it... More

We stayed here because we had an 18 hour layover so we just basically checked in, changed, had a night on the town and then came back to sleep for 6 hours and showered. The room was very simple with not much decoration, but the beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated, but good enough for... More

The room is bald and dingy. Part of the windows are to the street, which is full of pubs and bars. The night was really loud. The services in the hotel wasn't good. They don't accept Euro's coins. My shower wasn't clean properly... I don't recommend this hotel, sorry.

I am right now at rothaus hotel, midnight and there is a concert in a bar just below. I have a headache and I am nervous. The neighbourhood is normally noisy, maybe have relation with the fact that in the next corner there is a porn cinema? well, that's not the important, but the noise is really annoying

Having stayed at the Rothaus recently I have to say that I thouroughly enjoyed the experience. Depending on your particular viewpoint the location can either be described as an area to completely avoid or vibrant and interesting, I prefer the latter. Yes there are weirdos, drug addicts, alchoholics and prostitutes however that's what gives the area it's distinctive character. If... More

We stayed at Hotel Rothaus for 2 nights on a recent trip to Switzerland. We stayed in a double room on the 4th floor which was spacious, comfortable and a good base from which to explore Zurich. The room decor was a little minimalist and the bathroom quite small but everything was clean and functional. The free in-room wifi was... More

A very nice hotel, only 5 minute walk to the centre where there is such a lovely choice of restaurants. Off to Mt Pilatus in the morning so further reviews to follow. Had some lovely walks today which included the Tour Bus.

Hallo, If you are on a tight budget, this hotel is for you as it is only about 15 mins walk to the central station and once you are at the central station, it is the city center so you can walk to see the shops and restaurants on bahnhofstrasse which is the main shopping centers street in Zurich and...

Nice distinctive building. The staff are friendly. The hotel is very basic but clean enough and within walking distance of the station and the city. The hotel can be quite noisy because it's in a rather shabby area with lots of loud night life.
