This hotel is great. It is a little outside of the city center, but in a very nice area: a little gentrified: hipster bars and restaurants are around the corner. The river is close by for river swimming (we visited this hotel in August). And the tram / street car is very convenient for travel to the city center. We... More

We stayed here for 2 nights following an Avalon Rhine River cruise as it was a choice for a transfer from the boat. Nice business style hotel. We were upgraded to the Executive level which was nice because of the high floor and the great view. This hotel is located in an area that is being renovated. It is only... More

All hotels in Zurich are expensive so I can't complain. The rooms are very modern which I loved. We had a high floor with great city views. The club floor was nice and the gym had a dry sauna that looks out over the city...very cool. As well as a steam sauna...Loved that. The bar and resturant are expensive but... More

The Renaissance Tower actually has a great location in an up and coming business area of Zurich, once you understand how to use the #4 tram line. The tram costs very little and gets you to downtown in next to no time. However, if you are travelling by expensive taxi from the airport or train station you may not be... More

Had an overnight here on business. Was upgraded to a junior suite which was very nice in a corner room with plenty of space. The hotel in general is very much a business hotel with not much to see or do in the nearby vicinity. In fact, I did not see a restaurant in the neighborhood. The tram can get... More

How is it that a reservation made a year ago only rates a room outfitted for handicapped? Why does it matter? Shower setup for wheelchair access allowed water into bathroom. Sink had plunger control underneath the sink that worked poorly (once you found it) and when/if the water in the sink got to overflow port it was just dumped out... More

Compared to so many hotel rooms in Europe, this one has very spacious rooms. Clean and quiet. Check in very good. It is close to tram into downtown, you need that as there is nothing to do and on a Sunday night there is nothing but pubfood/sandwhiches in the hotel bar to eat!

We stayed here overnight awaiting a plane out of the country and we were not disappointed. They checked us in quickly, explained public transportation and arranged an early morning cab ride to the airport (20 minutes away). While the rooms were not huge, the beds were wonderful and the shower great. We also had the pleasure of dining in their... More

The hotel is located some distance from the city center and the underground system is some 800 meters away. The rooms were extremely modern and clean. I personally liked the wooden floors rather than carpet and this together with the walk in shower provided a contemporary feel. The food was extremely good and delicious. We were seeing Bruce Springsteen concert... More
