“Staying Zurich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Whenever I have to stay overnight in Zurich, the Krone is the perfect place to stay. The staff is nice. They have clean rooms, good beds and free hi speed wifi. It is really the best place to stay downtown in Zurich at a good rate.

I stayed in Krone Unterstrass Hitel for 3 nights in december 2012. The situation of the hotel in Zurich is perfect and the staff is very kind, they are very nice. They solve all problems you have. Rooms are very well furnished and they have been restarted so they are very comfortable. I had breakfast also with the room and it was very delightful. I will return to Zurich and I will stay in this hotel. I will recommend the hotel to my friends who want to visit Zurich.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I stayed here for a weekend. Like other reviews, I can attest that the staff are friendly, the breakfast is amazing and the rooms have been refurbished. I arrived on a Friday night for the weekend. I had travelled all day and all I wanted was a relaxing evening - Unfortunately, they had booked the restaurant for a party which finished at 1.30am. I called reception 3 times from 1am.... I would therefore strongly suggest that if you are thinking of booking for a weekend that you check with the hotel whether they have rented out the restaurant for the evening as you could be in for a nasty surprise!

Room Tip: Choose one on the top floor!

Whenever I have to stay overnight in Zurich, the Krone is the place I stay. The staff is very nice and attentive. They know the coffee I like to have for breakfast, they greet me by name upon arrival, they know the rooms I like. It's like coming home. Those are the things who make the difference. On top of that they have very clean rooms, good beds and free wifi. For me the best place to stay downtown in Zurich at a reasonable rate.

stayed there a few times for 1-3 nights, among approx. 20 different hotels i tried in zurich, this hotel is certainly above average. though the rooms are small (in the main building), they are clean and well maintained. hotel staff is very friendly (very rare in zurich!!!) and efficient. another plus is the vicinity to zurichs city center. the given 4 star rating is definitely applicable, although in many countries swiss 4 star hotels will be given 3 stars only. considering the sky rocking price level of hotels in zurich, this hotel provides very good value for money. i also tried the restaurant, high quality food for reasonable prices and friendly efficient restaurant staff as well

We stayed at the Krone Unterstrass for one night as we went to the Wine Expo on the boats, hotel is easy to get to the center of Zurich, tram stop is just in front of the hotel and you can get a
day travel card for sfr. 8.40 which you can use for 24 hours. Reception very friendly. Our studio was really great, very spacious , good mattresses, lovely bathroom, very clean. Good breakfast, quite a lot of choice. Will stay here again when visiting Zurich.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new building are lovely and spacious and most importantly very quiet.

A 1930s hotel which has been refurbished, and with an old part and a new annexe of larger modern suites. I stayed for a Friday Saturday and Sunday night in late October 2012. The night I moved in the light rain turned into snow, my first experience of snow in the city and the start of the winter.

Some very good points:

- reasonably priced for Zurich and 4 star (read this as 3 star in other places in the world)
- stayed in the suite apartments complex at the back of the hotel, which is away from the road/ road noise
- in the suite apartments, things are spacious, new and there is a kitchenette and a large bathroom
- buffet breakfast was excellent and with a large variety. The serving staff are very good and friendly. The dining room has a "provincial/country" feel and going there early with only a few other guests at other tables, it feels like a private dining room
- the helpfulness and quality of English of the front counter staff is commendable and they went out of their way to give directions and tips on the city. For example, there was no gym in the hotel, but they helpfully called around the local gyms to find any one which would take their hotel's guest as a day member. They were happy to store some luggage as I had to do a 2 day trip into the Swiss hinterland, which was appreciated
- your are 3 tram stops from the Main Railway Station (Bahnofstrasse) and 5 tram stops from the main shopping street - so very well located, and the tram ride is quick, Swiss-efficient and painless. It seemed all very close, but in retrospect, you wouldnt want to be walking or lugging your suitcases over these distances
- excellent wi-fi and internet which was included in the hotel rate

Some average:

- no knives and forks to speak of in the kitchenette, so what did they expect you to eat with - your hands? I borrowed a spoon from the dining room after breakfast and took it back to the apartment, so that I could use it to cut and spread cheese and eat muesli. The next day housekeeping had removed this from the apartment, and also a saucer. You pay more for this type of apartment, so shouldn't there be some hardware as well?

- make full use of the Co-op and Migros supermarkets which are about 80 metres away; and also the cooked food centre at the huge Co-op supermarket (housed in a former goods warehouse) which is next to the Main Train Station to stock up on food supplies. Remember to pick up some plastic knives forks and spoons from Co-op cooked food deli for use as "make-do" cutlery at the hotel

- not much in terms of bellboys etc, and so carting the luggage is DIY. There are a number of stairs between the apartment complex and the main hotel building, which gives the task of moving luggage a pain factor

Room Tip: Avoid the main building which has smaller rooms and older renovation and pay the extra for a suite a...
