“The best little hotel in Zurich!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Well I am biased because my Dad booked this hotel the first time I stayed overnight in Zurich and he was born here! We have been coming back every 2-3 years since and I have not had a reason to change where we stay . I is a beautiful quirky modern boutique hotel and as all Swiss hotels you can feel the true pride of maintaining it perfectly. We have stayed in other hotels there but only if we needed more room. We usually travel with 2-3 people.
The location, as said by others is perfect, just slightly off the main drag but squarely in the middle of the action.
The place for its size feels open and airy . Every time we stay the place has been clean, sevice is good and the front desk is always manned and helpful. I even lost my GPS unit and was surprised a couple months later in Boston, USA when I received a package and a nice letter explaining that the staff had found it behind the bed in the room! Imagine the chances of that happening in Boston or New York!
We find it an excellent value and more personal than the large hotels. Don't hesitate to trust this place on a Zurich stay. We'll be back!

This hotel was in a perfect location! Right in the wart of old town zurich and walking distance to lots of points of interests such as; Grossmünster, Fraumünster, banhofstrasse, the lake, and much more! The staff was friendly, the rooms were cute, clean, and quite. Overall a great little place to stay and the breakfast was amazing!

Heart of the action, we really enjoyed this Altstadt location, near restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping and transport. A snap to take the S7 line directly to the main station, then from there to the airport. Easy walk along the riverfront to Bahnhofstrasse and major points of interest, and beautiful setting day or night. Rooms were small, but very clean and well-equipped and modern; staff was super helpful and friendly, and breakfast was great too. A bit of noise from the street if windows were open at night, but quiet and sound-insulated when closed. Great!

Room Tip: We stayed in the annex building across the street from the lobby. Very nice.

We stayed here for two nights. Had the suite on the top floor of the hotel with a roof top terrace. Room was large and well furnished. Bathroom was extra large with seperate tub and shower. Bed was very comfortable. Had friends over to have cheese and champagne on the terrace. Lots of fun.
Our room was on the sixth floor and the elevator only went to the fifth. I am still fit enough to pack the bags up another floor. Excellent service and very clean.
We would stay here again.
No parking at hotel and the street to hotel is very narrow so be prepared to hike your bags to the door.

Very nice, cosy and historical hotel. The room was comfortable and very clean. I love the bathroom! Nice and helpful staff. It’s the perfect place to explore Zurich, the hotel is located in the old town of Zurich. Will come back!

Fed up of overpriced corporate hotels, I decided to try the Roessli on my last short business trip to Zurich and I'm glad I did. I was upgraded to a spacious room overlooking the quiet street, and the finishing touches (free water, nice toiletries, robe) were welcome. The bed was comfortable and the room bright. I didn't try breakfast as I had an early start but it was a pleasant 10+ min stroll across the bridge to the office. The location is lovely, being a cobbled street in the old town with nice bars, restaurants and artsy shops around. The staff were friendly enough in a slightly reserved way. I plan to stay again next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the bright, higher floor rooms overlooking the street

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of December, scored a 2 nights for the price of one deal- fantastic. Very clean, comfortable, quiet hotel with a roomy ensuite. I was surprised at how spacious the room and bathroom were, unusually spacious for Europe. Breakfast was included and was a delicious spread of cheese and ham, with fruit and yogurt and cooked eggs and bacon too. The staff were delightful, helpful and spoke English well. I would definitely stay here again. The bar downstairs is also a great place to hang out after long days of sight seeing.

Room Tip: The website for this hotel is misleading as the hotel does not overlook the river, it is around the...
