I have stayed at the Plattenhof at least a dozen times, sometimes solo and sometimes with my family. The staff always makes me feel welcome and goes the extra mile to accommodate any special needs and to make recommendations on where to go in the city, what tram to take etc. The breakfast is always something I look forward to...

Always stay here when visiting the University but easy access to the town also, rooms are tastefully decorated, restaurant very good. Staff really nice. Always interesting art/photography in the restaurant which changes every 3 months or so.

A chic and modern boutique hotel that feels like your very own beautiful loft. SERVICE Peter, the manager of the hotel, greeted us and I believe he was on his day off but still was busy making sure everyone in his hotel were extremely satisfied. He was tremendous and really went the extra mile to make sure we had everything... More

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times as well as their sister hotel in Zurich named Town House. Both have exceptional service and atmosphere. The owners and staff are involved and personable not to mention the resturant at Plattenhof is incredible! Whenever I visit Switzerland I love staying at this hotel.

We had our annual dinner at the Hotel Restaurant and we were all really pleased with the quality of the food, ambience and the friendly efficient service. One of our staff members was so impressed that they booked a room for a night. I can really say this is a good choice of Hotel or Restaurant when you are visiting... More

We had the great pleasure of dining at the Restaurant Sento for a business function. Peter recommended the Tavolata for our group (20+ people) which was brilliant. The amazing selection of dishes seemed never-ending and not only tasted divine but were presented beautifully on huge platters. We ate to our hearts content. Fresh, fabulous food and fantastic service. Would definitely... More

Clean, modern hotel with very helpful staff - everyone I've spoken to has great English but allow me the opportunity to use my rather poor German! The room itself is nice. The bed is a low-level one on the floor (402) which is okay for me, but obviously wouldn't be suitable for less nimble/elderly guests. I've enjoyed my stay here,... More

My first impression of the hotel was that it was way too removed from the city. However, the hotel is only a short walk to the tram which brings you to either the city center or old town in mere minutes. It is also only a 15 minute walk to the city through beautiful neighborhoods. The hotel is small and... More

Nice, cosy hotel with warm ambience and very helpful and kind staff. Rooms not very small, clean, some with nice view to the neighbοrhood. Nice breakfast (not warm dishes but very tasteful options like croissants, chesse, etc). You order your tea or coffee and it was one of the best i had ever had. Very helpful staff at the breakfast...

Someone should shoot hotel architects who design glass bathrooms - and rooms without shelves, cupboards or drawers. This is a pleasant, friendly hotel with helpful staff, nice breakfasts, great location. HOWEVER.... There is no place to put anything away - so if a colleague stops by your room all your gear will be on display. And you have to live... More
