Easy, short walk from central railway station. Older building but rooms are well maintained - and it was good to have an elevator/lift. Cramped lobby, but just around the back from the entry desk is the breakfast room which is fine for the morning continental servings. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, this was a great choice and gave good... More

Arlette is a modest hotel but with many fine qualities. Its location in the old city a few blocks from the Hauptbahnhof (HBH) is terrific. A quiet area yet within steps of a vibrant busy neighborhood. The staff of the hotel is really nice and very helpful. Our room was roomy enough, good comfortable large beds, A/C, free in-room WiFi,... More

I stayed for 2 nights when first arriving in Zurich and Europe. It was an easy walk from the train station and they had my room available at 10am which was very nice (it was early in the summer tourist season). The room and bath were clean and the room did have air conditioning. The towels are somewhat thin, but... More

What a delightful find. Friendly, helpful staff. A short walk from the railway station. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Fresh warm rolls for breakfast and option to enjoy freshly prepared eggs if you wish (at very reasonable extra cost) Quiet location but so near the Old Town, trams and railway. Air con and wi-fi. in room. Lift to all floors.... More

Location The location is fine as it was some meters away from the station. It was near the lake and the museum so we enjoyed both. Room The room was small but clean and again the aim was not comfort or luxury rather spending most of the time outside. Breakfast Not much variety but they served half fried eggs which... More

You can't beat the location; only a 5-10 minute walk to the central train station and right in the center close to the sights. Even with its central location, it's very quiet at night. I had a room facing the road and there were no issues with getting a good night's sleep. The staff is also very welcoming and friendly.... More

We love the Arlette. Just across the Limmat near the Train Station, on a street that is filled with good restaurants, run by a family that looks out for you . . . what more could you ask for. The rooms are modest yet comfortable, beds and pillows are good, the street is relatively quiet. Breakfast consists of coffee or... More

If you are arriving or departing Zurich via train, this little hotel can't be beat. It is a very short walk and easy to find. Rooms were functional and quiet, nice bathroom and nice breakfast. Many restaurants and shops within a short walk. Loved the location of this hotel!

As they advertise, this is a small hotel with petite rooms at a really good price. It has a great old-world charm. The room key is the type you turn in when you leave -- it's big and clunky. (I would have been disappointed otherwise.) I do want to point out that the bathroom, while small, has been modernized. And... More

Good for short stay. Family run hotel with small and cozy rooms. Very close to Zurich HB train station and accessible from main attractions. They serve free basic continental breakfast. Scores very high on cleanliness. Wifi is free and good. Also very helpful and courteous people.
