I booked a room in the Olympia Hotel on short notice for a two day trip to Zurich during the week. With around 90€ per night it fulfilled my main criterion for being a low priced accommodation. My room was quite small but functional. It consisted of a big bed, which took most of the space, a small desk, a... More

We stayed for one night as a stop over before heading back to London. Had a junior suite for a family of 4. Lovely, clean spacious rooms. Parking is expensive but luckily we were able to find street parking. Very close to the supermarket and within walking distance to restaurants. I would have like to have had tea/coffee making facilities... More

Small and not-so-clean room, mean staff. You have to pay extra for everything. Can be noisy, depending on your neighbours. The price is not bad and the tram stop is really close, but it's better to pay a bit more for a better hotel.

We slept under kilos of blankets, with very hot inside and very cold... More

The hotel was ok for the price in Zurich: small but everything that was needed. Good transport links ot the old town and main tourist areas. The downsides: - Room smelt of digestive biscuits for the 2 days we were there, leading to some running jokes about it being the maid's tea room - WiFi was not free

Booked online and arrived jet lagged in 27° the room was clean and comfortable . close to s/markets and cafe s/ restaurants Breakfast was wonderful the next morning. But the service let's this hotel down . There is so much potential to be fantastic. But the guy @ front desk was as helpful as a chocolate teapot

Friendly staff. The reception staff shows us clearly the major attractions in Zurich and he behaves friendly at all time. The room is not a big one but bed and bathroom are clean and tidy. Shampoo and hair dryer included. For surroundings, there is a Coop Supermarket. A bit far away from Zurich City Center (Approx. 35 min walking duration)... More
