This hotel is one of the worst three hotels I have ever stayed and I have been to a lot... It is, by far, the most noisy one. Soundproof=zero!

Good location.A short walk to railway station and near to tram which took us directly to airport. Also near to old town, which was great as we manage to visit places within a day before flying home. Would recommend this hotel to those visiting Switzerland ,using Zurich as lap before flight home.

it is ideally located. staff is extremely courteous and helpful. We reached the hotel at 7 am and were given an early check in.It is close to the main train station, and the Lake.... Breakfast is good and above all the staff is all smiling and helpful Our room was small and the only thing lacking was a kettle.

Perfect for a 2 night stay in zurich, a 800 metre walk tot he railway station ... If you have a lot of baggage to lug around by foot from the railway station, would be wiser to choose hotel central plaza, a 4 star hotel perhaps:) Actually, its an easy area to locate if you have the map..

We chose this place after reading the reviews. We were very happy with our room and the location was walking distance from the train station. The room was spacious and clean, with nice beds The service was excellent and the breakfast was very nice. Yes, there are "ladies of the night" outside, but never felt unsafe. I don't think children... More

We stayed a total of 2 nights at Hotel Basilea. The location is great with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. It is a 10 minute walk from the Main Rail Station and a 20 minute walk to Lake Zurich. The staff were welcoming and very helpful when we had issues getting our flights checked in. The rooms are small... More

We stayed for a quick overnighter on the way to the snow after arriving late into Zurich. We had a room for 4 (family with 2 young children). It was pretty basic, just like a normal hotel room with an couple of extra beds slotted in. For the price, I should have probably stayed at the Premier Inn at the... More

Hotel was very basic but very clean and seemed good value for expensive Zurich. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was great, esp because we didn't realise it was included in the price. Very convenient location to the main train station and given that Zurich isn't that big its very easy to walk to most of the attractions.... More

It has been a long time since I stayed in Switzerland and forgotton how expensive things can be. The room I had cost over $150. There was a very small bed, a night stand/table at a very low height. The room had a small desk with a chair and a television. The bathroom amenities were just sufficient; only a shower,... More

I stayed for five nights on business travel, so I had to spend quite a bit of time in the room doing work and teleconferences.
