My mother and I stayed at the Alexander Hotel for one night in March during our trip to Zürich. The location was perfect: just five minutes from the central station in the heart of the Old Town, within walking distance from some of the nicest shops, cafés and restaurants. It is very close to the Storchen area and to Banhofstrasse, where most of the boutiques are.
The check-in process was very smooth, and the lady who welcomed us was extremely kind. We had made a reservation for a business room, without stating a preference on whether we wanted a twin or a double bedded room. The lady at the reception desk suggested that we get the double bedded room because it was bigger and more comfortable. In fact our room (201) was big and cozy. Our room must have been recently renovated because everything - from the wood flooring to the furniture - looked new and modern. The mattress and the pillows were very comfortable, and the duvets on the bed were thick and warm.
There was a small wardrobe, plus a fitted wooden bench for our suitcases, as well as a hanging rail for coat hangers. One corner was occupied by a small working desk, next to a big window on the side alley, which made the room bright.
The bathroom was quite big, and everything was new. Hair drier, soft towels and toiletries were provided.
Wi-Fi is available and free of charge, as well as cable TV.
We slept very well as the place was warm at night, and very quiet, despite the hectic nightlife taking place in the Old Town.
Breakfast was included in our room rate, and we were extremely happy: the girl attending the tables was attentive and helpful, despite my limited skills in German and her basic English. There was a good choice of jams, breads, and yoghurts. Cooked breakfast was available too, even though we didn't try it.
The only glitch - if one has to be find - is the lobby: it would do with a makeover, as it is a bit dark and outdated.
We will definitely go back to this place where you can get top quality for a very reasonable price.
