Hotel Arlette is a quick walk over the river from the main train station and just up a hill a bit. When you get there the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are your smaller European style and a bit older but are well maintained and clean. If you are claustrophobic you may want to ask for a...

Perfect location hardly 5 minutes walk from Main train station, and nearby to other landmarks, small but comfortable and clean, old lady at the reception is very nice, friendly and helpful. Will recommend to anyone looking for stay near to city centre, landmarks and railway station to catch early morning or late night trains or need to catch a train...

This hotel is the perfect spot for a trip to Zurich. It's very close to the main train station, and walking distance to most other things such as Lake Zurich, Kunsthaus and Old Town. Breakfast was nice, a limited selection but we were fine with what was on offer. You can purchase extras if you'd like. The room was spacious...

I stayed there during my first visit to Zurich and I have found it very reasonable place with some amazing hosts (its a family run business), the location is excellent (very near to main train station) and the prices are good.

Great little hotel - not fancy, but perfectly comfortable and quiet. Their motto is "small but nice" and they live up to it. I had a single room (one twin bed) that had everything I needed. The bed was comfortable, AC and wifi worked well, and the private bathroom was immaculate and well-supplied, with good water pressure and enough room...

We picked this hotel because of its location, but we were pleased with the room and the service. It is not the fanciest of hotels, but the beds are comfortable and the bathroom roomy. It has 24 hour desk service, so you leave the keys at the desk. It is a real bargain compared to the other hotels around it....

Older hotel with affordable tarrif for Zurich. Easy walking distance to train station and other transport options. Bathroom very small with limited bathroom products .. an extra pillow or two would have made our stay more comfortable. Adequate continental breakfast ... good friendly service.

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...

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,...

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...
