We stayed there for New year's eve. The rooms decor was great, we loved it. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the morning. The place is clean and the staff helpful. We had a good time staying there and we would go there again. It is a bit of a walk to the center of town, but exercise is good.

I have stayed in this hotel before and it was always a god experience. But it has got much better since they brought in a number of dynamic young staff for whom nothing is too difficult. From supplying toothpaste to giving directions it was service with a smile which was a real plus. The hotel is very well placed too,... More

The Plattenhof is an underrated jewel in Zürich! Centrally located with a tram stop nearby, you are in downtown or the lake within minutes. Great rooms, amazing price/quality ratio, cozy little bar, in-house restaurant and above all, very accomodating and friendly staff. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a weekend getawaw in Zürich.

We had the room with the balcony. Despite it facing the road, there was hardly any traffic so it was quiet. Wi-fi for the room was a hit-and-miss and unstable. The room was comfortable, modern and clean. Bathroom was a bit narrow but still ok. Breakfast was rather simple but enough. The hotel has a great location and was near... More

Nicely located in a quiet area close the the Zurich University. Rooms are average, but clean. I did not like the bed (without legs), not handy when you want to get out of bed during the night. Wifi is free and works adequately. Breakfast is rather simple.

I am sorry to hear that you didn't like our Molteni beds which are very low. 50% of our rooms are furnished with "regular high" beds, so please do not hesitate to ask for them when you stay with us next time.

Hotel Plattenhof is located close to the famous university of Zurich and the even more famous Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule as well as the University hospital. It offers very nice rooms, modern bathrooms, excellent beds (!) and opulent breakfast. The staff is extremely friendly. I especially liked the evening bar, a little something before going to sleep.

This is a well managed (mute point in switzerland?) cozy hotel ideal if you have business in the area of the Universities as it is conveniently located. Very courteous staff and decent breakfast. My room was small, but comfortable. Not sure whether it was just my room but the bed sits very low, almost on the ground.

Well located hotel near tram stops and ten minutes walk from the city centre. Beds a bit uncomfortable and pillows too soft and saggy. Clean rooms and excellent breakfast - all round a good hotel but nothing amazing. Very convenient if visiting the university hospital,

We stayed here following personal recommendation. It's about ten to fifteen minutes' walk from the hub of the Altstadt which when we stayed was not a bad idea as the Zuri-flaesht was going on meaning the city centre was very busy and noisy. It is located in the University area of the city and is just a couple of minutes'... More

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your feedback, which helps us to improve our services. Being located in a historic townhouse building we are not allowed to install air-conditioning into our hotel, however we always provide ventilators during summer to keep the rooms cool.
