“Quite Simple and Elegant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Hotel is perfectly fine in center of the City near to the lake.. Plenty of resturant nearby including Starbucks next Door :)

Only Negative Point Phone not available in the room if you need to check something with reception you have to walk down to receptionist...

Room Tip: Everthing is perfect !!!

spent a very nice weekend staying in this hotel in central zurich. It is expensive but not by zurich standards.The hotel has recently been refurbised and is very well maintained. The rooms are basic but have everything you need if you are only using it as a base. The breakfast choice is limited though the free wifi gets it the thumbs up

Basic, but clean and comfortable Hotel in a great location, next to Zürich Central and only a couple of minutes away from central station. The staff was very friendly, but overall the place felt more like a modern hostel than a 100+ euro/night hotel facility. The exceptionally clean room was under the pitched roof with new furniture and a newly renovated bathroom but a cold and unadorned atmosphere. Breakfast somehow makes it up for this with fresh fruits, cereals and a high, light-flooded breakfast hall. But even for Zurich price levels the hotel seems somehow overpriced.

Marta Hotel is very close to the central station in Zurich , the location is good but the place is rather depressing , Breakfast was terrible the only thing that was nice was the original spiral staircase which was rather interesting ,I honestly believe this Hotel feels like a hospital ,there is only one reason people end up there is because it is located close to the station . If you walk five minutes towards the museum there is a much nicer hotel that has cheaper options and generally feels more happy . The street the Marta sits on is very noisy at night more so in the warmer months .

Room Tip: if you happen to check into the Marta ask for a room at the back

The hotel is location very close to the central station, and sits on a great street. The street was a bit noisy at night, but nothing that kept us up when the windows were closed. The hotel is very simple, yet clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good, and wifi was included. Although there aren't many frills to this hotel, we had no complains and would stay there again.

Hotel Marta is located in superb spot in the edge of old town, just a few minutes walk from railwaystation (connection to/from airport for example). I really don't think you can get a hotel with better location of this quality at this price.

Hotel seems recently renovated and is very clean and spotless.

Rooms and services are very basic, but for a few night's visit or business trip a very good choise. Rooms are decent sized and clean. Bathroom was quite small, but clean and there is no really anything to complaint. There was some noise from the bar across the street, but by closing the window noise was eliminated. Bed was very good.

Breakfast was quite basic but good, fruits, mueslis and yogurts and selection of cold cuts, fresh croissant and bread etc.

Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. Only minus is wifi which was slightly slow, but worked out after all.

This is a budget hotel with simple decor and design. The rooms size are small but they do have a walk in shower. No air conditioning but you they do have a fan in the room. This hotel as a street on both the back and front of the hotel. On the front side there is a new bar that has just opened. It was very loud until midnight and then noise still continued through until at least 2am. When we asked to change the room, none were available and ear plugs were issued. Not a good experience. Breakfast was a very simple, Continental, and they request you take your own used plates and cutlery off the table and take it over and stack it in the corner. What the? The first time I have had a hotel ask me to clean up after myself. I felt like I was a back packer. The hotel is in a good location with a short walking distance to train station. The old town and tourist walking guide are nearby. Also on check in we were issued a remote control for the TV and asked to return it on check out! Beware this hotel has some issues.

Room Tip: choose a room at to the back of the hotel but it also has a road.
