A really nice, comfy hotel. They have low 'Japanese style' beds which are comfy, if a little strange. Apart from that, clean, relaxing, well situated with lovely staff and a good breakfast. I would definitely recommend staying here if in business.

I really loved my stay here. This is truly a design hotel in nature and name. From the beautiful artworks and installations in the hotel, through to the warm greeting and offer of a drink before you check in, it was really a pleasant change. The room was immaculate, beautifully furnished with nice big windows that could be opened, and... More

Nice and quiet hotel, a little way from center city but take tram 6 and it drops you off 1 block away. When we checked in Sonya was very helpful. She took the time to explain a lot of our questions. Don't be surprised when you go into your room and you see your bed on the floor, but very... More

What a find, super lovely hotel slightly off the beaten track in a quiet neighborhood, but one that is still close enough to access the city with ease (btw, great yoga studio nearby Air Yoga). Fantastic service, nothing was too much of a bother, and the staff were always helpful and accommodating - SO FRIENDLY. Cannot recommend this place enough.... More

Arriving mid-afternoon in 30C temperatures meant I was delighted to be given a free cold drink on arrival at the reception desk . The greeting was very friendly and helpful with information leaflets and Zurich maps made offered without request. In fact, all of the young staff at the Plattenhof were very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean... More

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.

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
