4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Good central location only a few minutes from the main station.Very helpful staff - we advised day before arrival that we were booked on a tour mid morning - the room was ready for us to leave our luggage & tidy up before the tour. Good clean facilities & ample breakfast. Cons are room was a tad small & is in a noisey traffic location -although the double glazed windows kept that down, the curtains did not make the room dark enough for us & the room was way to hot but friendly reception staff made up for the inconvenience!

Room Tip: A room on the station side of the hotel would be quieter as that side doesn't appear to have the...

Dear Jim and Rosey

Thank you very much for having taken the time to write down your personal impressions, your comments are very valuable to us.

Regarding the darkness of the room we would like to inform you and future guests that we also have automatic shutters in all rooms, the switch is located right to the window slightly hidden by the curtains; this allows you to completely darken the room.

Last but not least we would like to thank you for your compliments regarding the staff and cleanliness.

We hope to welcome you again at the hotel du Theatre.

Yours faithfully

Nice quaint building beside a modern theatre, a street away from the main river. Short 5 min stroll from the main train station. Quick check-in and prompt service.
Rooms were small but sufficient, with a good shower and good wifi reception. Did not bother with breakfast as there were plenty of cafes nearby. No coffee-making facilities but they lent us a kettle to boil water, so that was OK.
Near major attractions and close to good food too.
Price was also reasonable.
Overall worth a stay in this beautiful city.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for rooms not facing the main road, although the windows are pretty...

The location of this hotel is perfect, only about a 10 minute walk from the main train station. Walking distance to all the major attractions in the city of Zurich. Quiet hotel, extremely clean and very accommodating. I had just arrived after 26 hours of traveling from Australia and they allowed me to check into my room at 10am so I could sleep! The room was perfect size for one person.

Stayed here with my husband for 1 night in May. It is very handy for the station and there are plenty of places to eat nearby. Although the room was not large it was comfortable and cosy with good lighting. The bed was comfy and the pillows were just right. The room and the bathroom were well equipped and clean.There was a good selection of food at breakfast which was served in a light and bright room on the first floor. The staff were polite and helpful. Would stay here again if passing through Zurich.

Very convenient location naer the railway station. We were given an upgraded room on our outward trip and found it very nice. However on our return trip we were in a standard room which we found had no tea/coffee making facility. It was a Saturday night but found that the restaurant and bar were closed. The very friendly reception staff did get us tea/coffee making facilities but it did cost us 7 euros

Room Tip: Higher floors are best. be aware that bar and restaurant is closed at weekends

Conveniently located near the Zurich main train station (5min walk) with friendly service at the reception. Although booked a single budget room but still spacious enough for my stay. Would prefer to have a water boiler (tea/coffee making). Need to improve the window insulation as the noise from the opposite bars can be quite disturbing at night (i.e. till 2-3am). The breakfast at Euro 20 is quite decent and looking out on the tramway.

Room Tip: try obtain higher floors and facing the main road (the other side has lots of bars/restuarants that...

Dear guest

First of all we would like to thank you very much for the time you have taken writing down your impressions. Your lovely feedback made us happy and it is nice to hear that we could offer you a pleasant stay.

Since we are centrally located it is true that we cannot offer complete silence however our windows are equipped with triple glass and we also have now in all our rooms ear plugs for our guests in case you want to sleep with an open window.

We are looking forward to welcome you back.
