We spent two nights here in July of 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay: friendly service, nice rooms, excellent breakfast, and all at reasonable prices for the city of Zurich. The walk to the center was about ten minutes; and the tram passes directly by the hotel. The Sorell has a few parking places, and it is necessary to reserve... More

The hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the center of Zurich. The hotel staff is friendly and attentive. we had a place to park the car. They were also very helpful to give information about Zurich. The room was nice, with everything you need and a private bathroom. The bed was comfortable. just I did not like the pillows... More

On a leisure weekend we needed a value price hotel given the sky-high prices in Zurich. This fitted the bill well and we found the location very good as it's yards from the tramstop with trams which run every few minutes not only into the centre of town but beyond to the lakeside if you wish. Your tram stop is... More

This is a lovely hotel and only a 10 minute walk from the train station. It is quiet and away from the downtown noise, but so easy to get to the shops, restaurants and bars, if you desire. The hotel is along the bus stop. Take # 7. It comes by every 5 minutes. 3 stops are free and that's... More

the hotel is quite nice. room size is reasonable, bathroom is small but functional , breakfast buffet is very nice and staff are polite and have nice attitude. the big BUT is that there is no air-conditioning. the 3 days I was in Zurich were very high temperature (over 30 deg C) and humidity was 100% or above! you just...

The hotel is a short tram ride or 20 min walk from the centre, with a tram stop very close by. It was really easy to connect from here to anywhere in the city.The room was the usual European tiny size (no cat swinging) and one enters through the bathroom (a first for me). When they say single room, it... More

After a work week in Lausanne, I spent the weekend with my family in Zurich. My brother in law usually books the hotel but he was busy and with the date getting closer I looked for options. I chose this hotel because rates were quite reasonable and pictures in Tripadvisor looked nice, and it was the best decision I could... More

Hotel staff friendly and helpful, rooms clean, but very small. Breakfast very good, including eggs and bacon, although only advertises continental breakfast. 10 min walk into centre of Zurich. Bit noisy early morning, trams and traffic going past

Hotel is within easy walking distance of town and on two trolley lines so it is easy to get around. Our room was as large as any we have had in Europe and they had an excellent hot breakfast. WiFI was very good. All in all a great value.

Booked this hotel rather late due to their reasonable prices and good location. We only booked a standard room but I'm almost sure we were upgraded unknowingly to a larger business room. The breakfast was brilliant and included in the price. We actually didn't know the time for breakfast and turned up 30mins late, but the staff were very nice... More
