Very hard to fine, and perhaps the thinnest walls ever, not going into that. However the staff was wonderful, everything was in walking distance. When booking the room it said private shower and sink, I did not think a toliet would not be included. They were so wonderful and switched out room without charging more. Our room was roomy, comfortable... More

This is a small and modern hotel, located in a nice and quiet residential area close to the University of Zurich. It is a 5 minute walk from the Kunsthaus art gallery and another 5 minute walk to the lake. It also has a tram connection that is very convenient, if one doesn't want to walk uphill on the way...

Our stay for 2 nights was quiet peaceful. Hotel is located in residential area and it has tram connectivity from Zurich main rly station. Only 2 minutes walk from Platte tram station. Rooms are nicely decorated. Bathroom is small but with modern amenities. Breakfast is lavish and good. Hotel staff is nice and professional. It has nice bar also.

I stayed in this hotel for a week. It is expensive but considering Zurich prices it was reasonable. It is in a very quite neighbourhood. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The public transport is very easily accessible and it takes 6-8 minutes by tram and 15-18 minutes downhill walk to go to the downtown. The ETH... More

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

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
