A short walk to the tram stop will have you in the centre of picturesque Zurich in minutes. The Plattenhof is a lovely place but like all of Zurich a little on the pricey side for the quality of the room. An odd low futon type bed with the smallest and darkest bathroom we have ever encountered. The only a/c... More

This is a nice and cozy hotel in a quiet area, but not far from the center of the city. If you don't feel lie walking you can take the tram (6) from HBF which takes 10 min. The lobby is small, but cozy with a nice bar. My room was nice with windows on two sides. Bed was low... More

Location is some 20 minutes' walk outside the center in a quiet, pretty residential district. Works well as long as you don't mind walking a bit (uphill on the way to the hotel). Hotel: modern, stylish rooms, which were clean enough but definitely not spotless. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast: good and extensive Service: friendly and professional Wi-fi: works well... More

I would like to start by saying that my stay in this hotel was very pleasant. I came to Zurich for a bussiness trip, had to be near the hospital. Location is perfect and the staff is very welcoming, taking care of details. However I must also pinpoint that you can tell that it has not been renovated in a... More

For those who love breakfast , this is a great little hotel. We were three family members staying two nights in Zurich, and given how expensive the hotels are here, we tried to find a place where we could share one room. Our room at Plattenhof was large, although it was a little cramped with the extra bed. The room... More

The hotel was very clean and well decorated and is conveniently located for tram links to the centre and the airport. My only complaint about the room was the lack of air conditioning as it was a particularly sweltering weekend. This may be the norm in Switzerland, I dont' know. One quirky thing about my room was that the bed... More

We stayed for two days this week. The weather was warm, and our room faced the setting sun. We came in the afternoon, to find the room unbearably hot, and had no recourse to correct it, as there is neither a fan, nor the room air conditioned. A basic hot water heater, with powdered coffee/tea/mil/sugar is lacking. Also there is... More

Located a little outside of the historic centre (but only 10min on foot or one of the 3 tram lines nearby) in a residential area, this hotel offers a warm welcome with recently renovated rooms in a boutique decor. Comfy bed and great bathroom. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Plattenhoff because I was attending a meeting at the nearby ETH university. This is a small and comfortable hotel. The interior design is modern and trendy. There was a bit of construction going on but it was not bothersome. The breakfast buffet is fine but not excellent. The rooms are pretty basic (no ironing board, for... More
