I stayed here on a business trip. If you are flying into Zurich it is a 30 mins train journey from the airport and the Hotel is situated on the Plaza next to the station. The rooms are basic but clean well appointed and excellent free Wi-Fi. It has a restaurant which is fairly basic but no Bar! .. There... More

The hotel is located next to the railway station and bus stops, so ideal for public transportation. It is a clean,bright, neutral business hotel with comfortable beds,roomy, quiet and clean wellness area and good breakfast. The doors of the rooms do not only look ugly but there is no way to close them without banging them loud - that is... More

Stayed overnight in October 2015. The hotel sits on a plaza next to the railway station and so is very handy especially if you have luggage. The welcome was friendly and efficient - I arrived early and was able to access my room earlier than you would normally be able to. This was done without any fuss and I was... More

This has to have been one of the most basic, yet functional hotels I have ever visited. The room I stayed in could only be described as a cube, with a comfortable and warm bed, 1 pillow, no a/c, but a window that opened onto a very noisy precinct in front of the hotel. The room was very clean, so... More

This is a very simple and basic hotel, suffering from the minimise approach. Rooms have one pillow, no air-con, but are clean and fine for one night. Hotel has no lounge or bar away. Small spa but no gym. The hotel is noisy at night with local bars and a bus station open very late.

The hotel wasn't quite what we expected unfortunately! Despite what the pictures show online it was very clinical and obviously better suited to a corporate stay than a leisure one. The room was ok however didn't have any tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was average, nice pastries however the cooked breakfast was terrible, the scrambled egg very over... More

We along with family & group through Thomas Cook reached Switzerland at this Hotel and find that even its heavy summer season rooms were without any coiling arrangement like AC or even fan, which should be arranged based on local temperature and have to accommodate in bad weather with worst grade of breakfast...

We were at Sorell Hotel Aarauerhof for 1 night while visiting a friend living in Aarau. The hotel is very well located, the bus terminal in front and the train station by the right. The town is located on the left. We had an awesome time walking around looking at sights and shops. Very clean rooms and good breakfast. As... More

I always enjoy staying at the Aarauerhof when I am in Aarau for business. The hotel is conveniently located at the train station, is very clean, has free internet, the staff is friendly, proficient in English and has a very nice breakfast buffet. Rooms can get quite warm when the weather is hot since there is no air conditioning. Then,... More

We stayed there for 1 night in MAY 2015. Although the hotel is far from city limits, it has a good location and surroundings. The rooms are ok but the biggest drawback being that there is no AC. It was very suffocating with out AC. If windows are opened, it seems pleasant, but the street noise disturbs your sleep. Bathrooms... More
