On my way back from Italy to Ireland with my Family we stayed 1 night at this hotel before catching the plane the next morning. I stayed here before, while on business and was pleasantly surprised to be recognised again and to be given an upgrade for all of us. We were very well looked after and will definitely be... More

My husband and I stayed at the Continental for 3 nights recently and found the stay to be an excellent one. We were greeted on our arrival by Anna, who was very helpful, as were all the front desk staff. We were staying in a suite which was very spacious and the bathroom and separate toilet had obviously been very... More

Dear Deb2076, Thank you so much for your feedback, you gave me a few hints to who you are and it was a pleasure to have you staying with us. Regarding the windows, I am afraid that as per a European regulation we cannot have windows that open to the outside in rooms facing the street. You can always contact... More

The Continental Hotel is a 3, perhaps 4, star commercial/tourist hotel (my rating) just a little bit away from the main bustling “café life” area of Zurich. The cafes and bars are, however, only 10 minutes’ walk away if that’s what you fancy. It’s in a commercial street set back 100m or so from the Limmat River and an easy... More

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were average size and the furnishings OK. The bathroom was small and in need of renovation and updating as was the room. Breakfast was good and the service staff OK. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful.

First time in Zurich so have nothing else here to compare, but this is a very nicely appointed hotel near the main train station. Nicely decorated with authentic woodgrain woodwork, real wooden doors and matching cabinetry in the room. Quiet. Nice dinning room on the second floor. Business service center off main lobby. Helpful, courteous staff. Overall a really nice... More

We spent our last night here before flying out the next day. Close to the center and all attractions, walking distance to Bahnhof and convenient to public transportation. Really appreciated the air conditioning during the recent warm days in Switzerland. Very comfortable room in all respects and helpful staff as well.

The building looks like a 1970s East-bloc building, which is not very enticing. The reception looks like an Austrian sporthotel of the same era (green carpets, lots of wooden paneling, wooden furniture), very outdated. Reception was swift and friendly. The room is tiny with an even smaller bathroom. In fact, it is the smallest bathroom I have ever had in... More

Grüezi mddrijver, Not a bad guess - this hotel was built in 1968. But Switzerland was always pretty far off "East-bloc" influences. True that the taste changed over decades and there are not many end 60's buildings looking particular beautiful from the outside. The interior is 100% Swiss and maybe the Austrians nicked it? :) Concerning the room size -... More

Has a Swiss Cottage feel to the room. Delicious free apple cider at the reception desk. They give you a nice miniature ice cream bar at check in. Room is nice and clean with a large shower....no door needed.
