The hotel is about a 10 minute tram ride from the city center and in an area where there really isn't much to do. The hotel hosts quite a few small rooms, however upon my arrival, I was upgraded to a suite...room #209. The suite was lovely...but not the norm. It had a large king sized bed with 2 additional...

The Hotel is near stations for tram 2 and 3 so it is easy to go anywhere from there. The sound isolation is pretty bad and if you have a loud neighbor, you will not get lots of sleep. Breakfast is OK, but staying more than a few days it gets repetitive. It is probably the best value for money... More

When i arrived, the night recepsionist made me fill out more papers than a public service, at every question i had, he hadn't a suficient answer!

My honest feedback is as below 1. Bigger rooms are limited, I was lucky enough to get a bigger room which was nice, So be sure to confirm the room size before checking in the hotel 2. Breakfast - Since I am a complete vegetarian there were limited vegetarian options for me in the breakfast, so if you are vegetarian... More

It was a last minute call to Zurich and due to tourist season was unable to get a room in any other hotel but except Olympia. Thankfully a room was vacant on second floor, after completing the formalities, I got the keys. I was really tired after hours of flight and this place was not providing any sort of comfort.... More

Zurich is an expensive city, so miserly though I am even on company expenses, I ended up with the Olympia. I've been here before and knew the location, an easy but nevertheless twenty minute plus journey into town by tram. You don't have to wait long but it still takes time. Anyway, the hotel is what you might expect for... More

My wife and I and our two children stayed there for one night. We had a big familyroom with a big bathroom, and were quite happy about that, but that was the only thing to be happy for. The service and the facilities wasn`t imressing. Everything costs money, and it seemed that they only wantet to earn money.

Looking at the other reviews I am starting to think my standard of cleanliness may be too high as I thought that although the sheets seemed clean, the carpet and bathroom were clearly not. The room was tiny, with very dated carpet which on close inspection revealed hairs. The bathroom was also very small with pubic hair on the tiles... More

We unfortunately came to be booked into this hotel as part of a package - there were two conventions in town so hotel rooms were scarce which is why I guess we ended up here. The only positive I can give you is that the room was clean (in the most part). But sadly that is all. As others have... More
