“Good small hotel in good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

It's a good small hotel near Central railway station - 5 minuts walk. But if you have more baggage it will be better to use tram: otherwise you will go uphill. Hotel not too far from the main attractions of the city.
Clear room, good facilities, free Wi-Fi and our room has balcony, nice view to opposite cathedral but be ready for church’ bells at 6pm.
Breakfast is plain – don’t wait something special, but breakfast in restaurant “Crazy Cow” with interesting decoration.

Quite corny but what the hay? After looking at the hotel website prior to arrival I was prepared to be unimpressed. The lobby is fully decorated in cow motif. However, the double room we shared with our 2 teens was spacious and clean. 260 chf, #416 consists of 2 rooms. First has 2 twins leading onto the second which has a queen and the bathroom. Ceiling fans, A/c, synthetic pillows and comforters although of good quality. Sheeting very good and crisp and clean. Mini fridge. bathroom is small but contains tub/shower combo. , is white and very clean and newish. Room is above tram line but it is nearly silent when it goes by. Had a drink at the attached restaurant The Cow and not impressed. We parked our SUV in the garage for 25 chf which we reserved in advance. Garage was tight but very convenient at street level on front of hotel. Unloaded luggage at front door of hotel. Wheel chair lift is available for those with mobility issues. Quick stroll to old town, train station and kunsthaus museum. FREE wireless.

Stayed here one night while in transit home. The location right across from a tram that connects directly to the airport was a plus.The Crazy Cow restaurant is that--loud patrons, wacky decor but good classic food. Be prepared for tour groups and families with small children who are allowed to run around. It was a nice touch to have the room fan (during a 32C heat wave) except it was so noisy we couldn't sleep with it on. Street noise is very evident when you have to have the windows open.

Room Tip: Get an upper floor away from the street--and keep windows closed.

We were recommended this hotel and what a gem it turned out to be. Spotlessly clean, a good sized room, and a superb location close to everything. The staff could not have been more helpful, even to the point of coming with us out to the tram stop to show us how to use the ticketing system. The tram stop to the airport is located right ouside the hotel. ( 6.40 CHF for a trip to the airport). It was an easy stroll down to the Bahnhof and the downtown shopping / resturaunt area. If you want excellent value for money for a hotel in Zurich, this is the place to stay at.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel which was extremely quiet.

We ended our European holiday in Zurich. Overall, we found Zurich to be expensive in accomodations and food but LOVED the Leoneck, Hotel. We had a large family room, that had air, wiresless internet, an elevator (our room was on the third floor so the lift was nice in getting our luggage to the room), a nice balacony, AIR, and a shower/tub combo.

The hotel has a COW theme, which was fun and different. Very enjoyable for our kids. Our children are older, but there is a play area in the lobby for families that are traveling with smaller kids.

There is a tram stop immediately in front of the hotel and it's easily within walking distance to the main shopping areas, trains, and also to a Starbucks (with great American/flitered coffee for those who miss coffee from home).

We had an early flight and needed to be at the airport before 5. The staff at reception gave us a personal wake up call and arranged a taxi for us the night before to arrive at 4.45 am.

The room was pricey, but reasonable for a quad in comparision with other options I found through trip advisor. We felt it was family friendly and enjoyed our short stay.

This hotel was recommended to us by a local that uses this as a low cost option when hosting visitors. Zurich is an expensive city by US standards and finding a budget hotel with good quality is really challenging. Leoneck fit the bill perfectly. Rooms are extremely clean and functional. Bathrooms are remodeled with new fixtures and sparkling white. No need for a car with the tram, S-bahn and close proximity to the rail station. Close proximity (1 km) to the commercial area area for shopping and many restaurants. Hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. An example was that we stayed two nights separated by a night away to the mountains. They stored our bags in a locked room while we were away for no additional charge which was nice. Free wifi worked great with easy login. Unfortunately we left early in the morning and were not able to eat breakfast in the hotel. However, the clerk made us coffee using their machine behind the desk. Nice touch.

No more crazy cows in Europe except those at the Leoneck Hotel with it's quirky crazy cow theme.
Good value and clean, right next to the tram track for easy commuting, but easy walking to the University or downtown Zurich. Nice breakfast included with all the fixings for a good start for the day. Friendly staff. Child friendly.

Room Tip: We were on the back side hotel which was quiet. Small garden, child friendly.
