“Would make a good three stars, maybe three and a half, not more.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Nice hotel with convenient (but expensive: 40 CHF per night) garage, otherwise hard to come by around here. Room was fine, comfortable bed, but only one huge pillow and no slippers.

Good free wifi. TV set was old and very low res, at this level of hotel an HD TV is to be expected.

Full breakfast... in theory. Scrambled eggs were gone when I tried to get some and the waitress said they'd be coming back, but after 20 minutes of waiting I gave up. Coffee was so-so, which is not acceptable in Switzerland! However they did have an espresso machine in the room, which was nice to make a cup right after getting out of bed in the morning.

Several papers were available at breakfast, including the IHT in English.

No fitness, sauna, etc.

Staff polite and helpful. Special thanks to Elena for making me feel welcome at check-in.

Dont' expect much here. Rooms are quite old, service is not a value they favour much. prices are formidable. No food after 11pm (anywhere except McDo! but then thats Zurich too). Breakfast is poor for such a hotel.
Its right opposite train station (not central one) and tram connections are VG but comes with noise
The key is the prices just don't match up with the rest.

Nice clean efficient as one would expect in Switzerland . Staff at reception nice and friendly. Key is old style, an actual yes you guessed it a key. There are two deficiencies. One the aircon can not be controlled so they placed a fan in my room. So must be a recurrent complaint. Also the shower pressure is on the weak side. I overlooked the back but they had made an effort to put a garden on the roof I was overlooking. Nice touch.  So clean and efficient with small deficiencies. If its a baking hot day avoid but that is like two days a year.  Location is a stones throw from the station and across the way restaurant San marco makes an excellent schnitzel.

My wife and I just spent two nights at the Ascot Hotel and found it to be a very well located, the staff without exception were friendly and helpful.
The rooms were clean and in good condition, the free wifi was good, the bed was comfortable, but the pillows need to be replaced. On balance a place to stay if you're looking for a well located 4 star hotel in zurich

I only stayed here one night but would have been happy to stay longer. The hotel was very well located- across the street from the train that goes to the airport and close to the tram. Rooms were larger than expected for Zurich. The bed was extremely comfortable. Wifi was reliable. Staff was very helpful in answering our questions.

It was a terrific hotel to stay in for us because it is very, very convenient to my children's home.
The people who run the hotel are very, very helpful. They will try to help with any of your requests. The location is outstanding because you go go anywhere from there. There is a tram right there as well as trains to most parts of Zurich.

I stayed at the Hotel Ascot for 3 nights. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located right near Enge station, with direct trains to the airport and trams to town. The too, was large, clean and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
