Modern Design Rooms are comfortable too- especially the bathroom with lots of class a! Staff is helpful in making restaurant reservations and looking up train schedules. It was nice to be a little outside of the city center but within walking distance of the all the places we wanted to visit. We even walked to the zoo which is a... More

Hotel decorations were fun and funky. Room was good sized, bathroom slightly small but functional. Staff was friendly and helpful. It is up on the hill, so if you are walking from the train station, be prepared for a hike

Finding this hotel in Zurich was a gem. The character and location was spot on what I was looking for. Theme is towards 'young professionals looking for something slightly different' but is clean and functional. Rooms are set in contemporary Japanese-like with low beds and en-suits being behind translucent walls and sliding doors. Fast, reliable internet. Breakfasts are DACH (Deutschland-Austria-Switzerland)-style... More

Dear Gustaf Thank you for your kind review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you say we do have many young guests, however, our guests are very mixed, from young professionals to seniors seeking for something slightly different and with more personality. We are upgrading our breakfast buffet with seasonal fruits and specialties... More

This hotel is quite different. Everything seems like hom-made with everything from ice tea in the reception to handwritten notes. The service was friendly and everybody seemed quite young. Location is OK, next to the University, and a little bit on a hill. It was difficult to find in a car though, not many signs! Remember navigation. The hotel offers... More

This was our first trip to Zurich and we are so pleased that we decided to book the Plattenhof Hotel for the two nights we were in Switzerland. It suited us perfectly to be up the hill away from the more busy atmosphere of the city. The walk down to the lake and city centre was easy, even in the... More

This is a nice small hotel located in a quiet area next to the University Hospital. It is easily accessible from the center of the city with tram (#6). The lobby bar is small, but cozy. My room was nice with one window. There is no air conditioning so during the heat wave the only way to cool at night... More

Good location, 1 block from the tram stop, which is ~5 mins from the main train station. Quiet area with nice university setting. Not too much to Bed was comfortable. Multi-speed fan provided in room. Cool decor and setup. Relatively spacious room. Good Wifi connection. The included breakfast was very good.

This is one of the Life Style Hotels with emphasis on unique styles in their design. It’s conveniently located close to the tram stations, with easy access to downtown and the airport. It appears to be within walking distance from the train station on Google map, but it is an uphill walk with some very steep slopes, so taking the... More

Our room was more than adequate and we appreciated that when we checked in, having booked a queen sized bed, it was recommended we might prefer a side by side twin bed set up as queen is a low to the floor futon. Beds very comfortable. Nice breakfast buffet and had a good dinner as well. Only complaint was that... More

We have been staying at the Plattenhof every time we travel to Zurich. The management and staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern, comfortable, quiet and clean. The breakfast buffet (included) is delicious. We highly recommend it to anyone.
