Been there twice, was given the suite on top. It's absolutely worth it, beautiful balcony w/view, super clear with lots of sunlight, nicely furnished...Incredibly pleasant for something in that price range. Quieter than normal rooms as well. But i've had the normal rooms, too and they're totally worth it. Yes, it's a noisy area - Langstrasse is nearby, all the... More

There is high volume music and and young people's screaming till late midnight time. It s very very bad cause you can't sleep. I couldn't understand how they gave permission to build up a hotel in such a bad place.

Given how expensive Zurich is, this hotel represents a good value. For US$100 I was given a large, basic, clean room. Breakfast was not included at this price. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful with information. I was permitted to check in several hours earlier than expected, with no hassle or extra charge. It is not centrally located, but... More

ZUrich is sooo expensive, so I knew that by booking one of the cheapest hotels on the web, I shouldn't expect much. But, it's still 3 times more than I usually pay in the states. This hotel was hard to find using Google maps, so don't do that. When we checked in the hotel we were told about the surrounding... More

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
