“Refreshing, but oh the shower......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights, on business. Friendly efficient staff, wonderful welcome from Marietta.. An asset to the hotel! Even the singing chambermaid... So refreshing...

Very comfortable stay, just one grumble...the shower... Allowing for the intrusive shower mixer taps, i am sure we could dispense with the intrusive shower caddy fitted on the opposite side. A choice of bruised elbows, constantly hitting the tap and the associated screams of carnal delight when the water turned a warmer shade of cold, or resorting to a gentle ballerina pirouette to facilitate washing under the arms.. ;)

Goid food in the bar and restaurant, and well you expect high prices in Zurich, rather enjoyable food in the bar....

Stayed February 2012

This is a nice hotel for tourists or business people. I stayed 2 nights in the single room. It is a small room but perfectly adequate and comfortable for one person with a comfortable bed, tv (with channels in different languages including English), desk and closet. the hotel is also very centrally located in a convenient location - only 3 tram stops from the main Zurich HB train station which is very close to many top sites including the Old Town and Bahnhofstrasse. It's also very convenient that the tram stop is right outside the hotel. Service is also pretty good; emails and requests were always replied to politely and quickly and checking in and out was very easy. Free wifi was great and worked well. the restaurant looked nice but would have been better if breakfast was included. two small things would have made the visit perfect. Would have appreciated being offered help with my two pieces of heavy luggage when coming and going and the shower stall is quite small so the space felt quite tight. May be tough for bigger people to use. But overall I would stay here again and would definitely recommend it. A good choice!

Really nice location, good service offered, but not always available as expected.
e.c. offered printer in lobby does not work, or: offer of service desk to have a quiet place for a business meeting was canceled by management.

Have stayed at Krone on and off over 10 years. It's functional and understated and perhaps some rooms are a little small, but the quality, service, food and ambience are really good, and the Staff are really wonderful - always attentative, friendly and flexible. I always look forward to going to the Krone and have never been disappointed in fact always leave with a real feel good factor.

Price is considerably affordable for the quality at Zurich. Location is good, a few stops from the train station and convenient especially with the frequent bus schedules in Zurich. Stayed in a single room, nice and modern with a pretty spacious shower area. Good stay.

I've stayed here 3 or 4 times now for business. Zurich is really expensive, and Unterstrass usually comes up the cheapest acceptable hotel option. I can expense my hotel, so I don't have to suffer too much. I could also expense a more expensive place, but I stay here anyway because I like the location, the rooms, and the company is happy when I keep costs low. It's probably half the price of other similar places I've stayed in Zurich. It's quite a hike up the hill from the rail station, so take the tram. It's just a few stops and it runs frequently. The tram system in Zurich gets you pretty much anywhere quickly.

One thing to watch for that I've mentioned in reviews of other Swiss hotels - air conditioning. The Swiss don't seem to do AC. Even some of the elite banks don't even provide AC in their offices. I've paid $600/night for hotels in Switzerland and still had no AC. If you don't like that, go visit another country.

This hotel is an exception because they actually seem to have AC in most, presumably all, of the rooms. I had one room where it leaked a lot during a heat wave, and another where it was minimally effective (probably because I was on the top floor) but I didn't care. I was just happy to have AC in Switzerland.

Room Tip: Ask about the AC status in the rooms, and probably avoid the top floor if it's really hot outsid...
