“Friendly, comfy, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I stayed only a night and I had a room that did not face the street. It was roomy, clean, quiet and well maintained. The hotel bar is also a very cool place filled with locals and guests. I would stay there again if I plan to be in Zurich again.

Room Tip: Do not face the street as I can imagine that being noisy.

We had a clean, classically decorated room, with great floor and air space, which is in contrast to the small and tiny entrance and reception. Grand bathroom when it coms to equipment with two separate sinks and a large bath tube. Though rather dark in decoration. No air conditions. We where told that they are not allowed in these historical buildings in the old town of Zürich. A very friendly and helpful staff. Internet (w-lan) worked on 4th floor and was included in the price as well as the breakfast.

Room Tip: W-lan worked on 4th floor

we were super happy with the apartment that we stayed at. it was quite a big apartment for europe standard- essentially 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a kitchen, large living/dining room plus a beautiful rooftop terrace. if we had known it was going to be so spacious and centralized, we would've booked it when we returned to zurich on our last night.

the hotel is centrally located in old town with the grossmunster basically in it's backyard....its a 5-7 minute walk from the bahnhof stadelhofen station and a 7-10 minute tram ride to the zurich hb station.

of all the breakfasts we had in switzerland, we thought hotel roessli had the best! it had the typical cold meat and breads, but a huge selection of yogurts which made us all very happy!

we'd recommend anyone going to zurich to stay at hotel roessli as it's truly unbeatable!

Room Tip: if it's a party of 4, i'd definitely recommend getting the apartment instead of 2 double roo...

I had a short, 2 night, stay there on my way home from a business trip and in order to attend the opera. The location is ideal in Old Zurich and the accommodation and staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is a short distance from the main rail station and convenient to the airport. A great alternative to airport hotels and a great way to spend an evening in Zurich.

My and my man got upgraded from a double room to a penthouse suite. The suite was amazing. It was a mix of modern and old-school, very comfortable bed, huge bathroom with a shower and a tub, and a great, rooftop view of downtown Zurich.
The hotel has a bar next door but the prices are outrages (15.50 CHF for a gin and tonic :/), so you're better of just having a beer. The hotel is also difficult to find in the labyrinth of streets which is Old Town Zurich. It is quite a walk from the train station, but the location is worth it. There are plenty of restaurants and bars around.
The staff is friendly and speaks English very well. We loved our room and will be returning again.

We just learnt from planning department and building control office that our alley receives additional letterings which should make it easier to find us.

Nice modern clean-cut hotel in the old town.

Short tram or walk to the main station and plenty of restaurants and bars around nearby.

Breakfast buffet very good.

Only down side was that it was very noisy outside late at night even though we were on the top (third) floor.

The hotel is a small little gem in the old town. Tiny reception and a wonderfull, helpfull staff! Stayed in a room which was not facing the small alley where the winebar is so the room was very quiet. No noise at all. Clean, nice rooms. No frills but everything you need. Loved the bathroom! Breakfastroom was small but very tidy and nice. Breakfast was fresh and it was nice and calm atmosphere in the room. Reasonably priced hotel in a city where everything is expensive. If you don't like big hotels and don't mind squeezing into a tiny elevator with your luggage, this is your hotel. The location is perfect. Walking distance or a short tramride to the train station where the trains go to the airport. Loved my stay in the hotel!
