“Live here during your staying in Zurich!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

I highly recommend this hotel! The location is unbeatable as across street, there is a tram station that has trams going to the airport and the old Zurich!

The room is small but more than enough for one person. If you are a couple, you ought want to check if they have bigger rooms available. My room has a balcony, and the view was very nice! Free wifi, super friendly and humorous staff! I didn't bring my converter with me, and they lent me one for free.

Tips: when you fill out a form upon check-in, make sure you put the dates in European style, D-M-Y. The staff might test you ;)

we really enjoy the Coronado due to its proximity to the Univ of Zurich, excellent hiking/running trails, close to our favorite Catholic Church, excellent tram access (to city center and airport), and just six stops from the main train station (10 min) and city center.

The staff makes every effort to provide the quality of service every seasoned travel comes to expect. Our room was on the back side of the hotel (we like quieter rooms) and it was maintained to the high standards we have for cleanliness and comfort. The price is very reasonable and the size is typical for a european room.

We like the restuarants in the area (Kern Tea Room and Pastry Shop [local's treat shop] and Restaurant Kreuzstrasse [Italian]) are wonderful and the grocery Coop) are a short walk from the hotel.

The Catholic Church is two short tram stops from the hotel and they have a 5:30pm Mass. Tram 10 is a twenty minute ride from the airport and the stop is right across the street. There are several trams choices to access any part of the city. The current day pass is 8.20CHF and the cost to the airport was 2.90CHF (change or credit card are your two choices of payment).

Even though we have never tried the hotel restaurant for breakfast or dinner, but other guests have been positive in their comments.

We will return to this excellent lodging facility is the future.

Room Tip: We like the back side to avoid some of the traffic and tram noise.

Don't be let down by the unremarkable facade of this hotel in a very quiet, residential area of Zürich, as the reception area will lift your spirits. The lobby looks like it has been recently renovated, and the check in process was quick and easy.
We were welcomed by a very kind girl who gave us all the information we needed on how to get to the old town by tram. Lines 7 and 10 stop Milchbuck is just across the street, and a ten-minute ride will get you to Bahnhofstrasse (walking distance to the railways station, the Town House, the Old Town, etc.) Tram tickets are also available at the reception desks, as well as maps of the city.
As to the room, we were assigned to 403. It was large enough for the two of us, simple but nicely decorated, very clean, and overlooking Irchelpark. There was a king-size bed with two warm duvets, and both the pillows and the mattress were very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit on the small side and the toiletries are essential - the usual bath towels, towels, shower gel and hair drier - but again, there was everything we needed.
There's also a brand new flat-screen TV in our room, with a lot of foreign channels. Wi-fi connection is available for free, you just need to ask for the password.
Since we were traveling by car, the parking lot at the back turned out to be very useful. There are also some parking spots just in front of the main entrance.
Our internet rate didn't include breakfast, but you can have it added to your room charge for 15 Swiss Francs per person. There was a good selection for breakfast: from cereals to croissants, from from yoghurts to fruits, as well as the usual eggs, ham, and toast.
We would definitely recommend the Coronado Hotel to anyone planning a break in Zürich, as it is a very good deal for a reasonable price. And thank you to the staff for being so helpful!

We live in the neighborhood (just behind the hotel) and have had many visitors stay in the Coronado. They have all been delighted with their experience.

The Coronado is located at the Milcbuck tram and bus stop. The hotel is 15 minutes from Old Town and the Lake, 20 minutes from the Airport on the #10 tram, and a quick bus ride to a lovely forest with many, many miles of walking trails. And, you are across the street from the wonderful Irchel Park, about 100 acres with a pond, jogging path, tennis courts and very nice and inexpensive cafes on the University campus, just above the park.

There are several great places to eat right in the neighborhood, including the Bakery Kern and the Spanish Restaurant Gonzalez. There's a terrific Italian restaurant within walking distance, Restaurant Scala. Make a reservation at Scala on the weekend!

The hotel itself has been remodeled and all rooms are very nice, especially for the price. Service is great. The top floor rooms are bigger and well designed, and cost a bit more.

All in all, we are happy to have the hotel nearby.

Dear Bill,
Thank you very much for your comment on Trip Advisor. I was very happy to read, that even locals write some words about our Hotel Coronado! I appreciate it and thank you as well for the great tipps and hints about the area and restaurants, I just can agree with , the Restaurant & Pizzeria Scala is worth visiting, it is very popular among locals.
We are very happy to be your place to be nearby, hopefully for another 20 years. :)

Hotel Coronado is a 12 - 15 minute tram ride from the city center (min. three different trams run to the city center, direct to main station and Bellevue/Lake Zurich/Opera, there also is a direct tram to the airport, aroung 20 minutes). Take a day ticket for the tram (city not airport). It costs a little as two normal tickets. They offer very reasonable prices via the main booking sides especially compared to the high prices in the middle of Zurich. Price/What you get Relation is also very good. They have enough parking space for cars.

It's a (modern) three star hotel. Nothing fancy. But You don't need more on a sightseeing trip. Rooms look quite new. They are big enough for two people to stay comfortable. Bathrooms are a little bit to small, but all in all okay. No aircon. Madresses are soft, but still oaky. Breakfast is 15 Swiss Franken a person, for Zurich a fair price. We didn't have breakfast. We - it's our second visit at the Coronado - took a room to the back. At the frontside the trams are running. But - to be fair - we can't say anything about the noise on that side. Back side is very calm.

We'll come again, definitly.

Wow! Stayed 1 night at Coronado hotel (last night of a 4 week European holiday) with our 2 kids aged 6 and 9, we were weary and looking forward to home. Getting into our room was a lovely surprise, top floor with beautiful big windows looking out over the park across the road. The room was spotless and spacious. The kids loved the blue lighting and heated floor of the bathroom! So easy to get there from the tram even with all our bags, it stops right across the road. Excellent service from the front desk staff morning and night, maps and directions given very helpfully! I was very Impressed the the amount of in room information supplied, this is a hotel that has thought of everything possible to make your stay easy and enjoyable, from free fresh fruit at the front desk, restaurant recommendations complete with which tram and the name of the stop to offering to print boarding passes for further travel. Someone has been thinking! Breakfast was ok, meats and cheeses were dried out and uninspiring but good range of other items to select from. Tea and coffee available in foyer as desired (self serve) would be nice to see maybe some hot chocolate too as my kids felt they were missing out when we had a cup of tea after a winter walk. A great family accommodation option, would recommend!

This is a great hotel, if you want to be close to the center of town, but not right smack in the middle. It gives you a sense of how the 'natives' live. From the train station it is about 10 min. with the tram and only one so hop on, sit, and you're there.

The hotel is very clean. The rooms are a nice size for Switzerland. It has everything you need, hair dryers, TV, phone, soaps & stuff and more. The front desk is run by two people 8morning & night shift) and they like their jobs, which you'll get to feel. Breakfast is good.

Restaurants nearby as well as the main tram station directly across the street. The reception will aid you in anyway they can.

A nice middle class hotel for both vacationers as well as business tripers.

Room Tip: buy your tram or city tickets at the front desk...than you don't have to collect all that change...
