“Walking distance to downtown, but located in a quiet area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2004

We stayed one night at Hotel Rex in August 2004. We drove from Germany, so we needed somewhere we could park our car safe. The hotel is located in a nice and quiet residential area. Unfortunately Hotel's parking lots were full, but a receptionist was very nice person, and she gave up her own parking space for us. We walked 15 min to downtown since parking in downtown Zurich could be expensive and crowded.

Breakfast was continental style - tea, coffee, juice, bread, cheese, ham, fruit, yogurt, cereal etc. We had a non-smoking room at the corner, and the room was nice and clean. Wow, BIG! (we expected a European standard size room). We slept good.
If you are not looking for a luxury class hotel, this is a great place to spend some nights in Zürich.

We enjoyed Zürich. We had a cheese fondu and raclette in Adler's Swiss Chuchi at Rosengasse 10. Mmm, it was great!

Nice little hotel close to Main Station. But beware if you try to use the trams. No 7 has been diverted and does NOT pass the hotel. Use bus 15 (replacement for tram 15) instead for next 8 weeks (until end of September 2004).

No longer part of Best Western group, but excellent last minute prices.

This is a clean, basic hotel. The rooms are furnished in a standard, functional fashion. The location is about a 15 minute walk from the city center, up a steep hill, but on a convenient tram line. One nice feature is good quality wireless Internet access. A card for 6 hours of use costs about 25 Swiss Franks.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2002

my wife and I were first timers visiting Switzerland to look up my grandmothers birthplace, and flew into Zurich and spent some time there before touring central switzerland and then Germany and Austria. We knew nothing about Zurich and got our rooms through AAA travel. When we arrived, we were happy that they spoke excellent english, for my german is poor, they were also very friendly and most helpful. The first room we had there was on the 2nd floor and rather plain, but functional, but on the return trip we were on the top floor and had a excellent view and a kitchenette as well as a large single bed. The food there was quite good, but a word of warning, the coke bottles are very expensive by american standards. Quite a pleasant stay, I plan to stop there in November when I return with two of my adult children. Dan Wilcox Cincinnati, OH
