The 4-star Hotel Krone in Zurich Unterstrass is a modern city and business hotel with tradition. Top quality, sustainability, outstanding service and hospitality are our core values. Our city hotel was founded in 1720 and has been one of Zurich's most renowned places to stay ever since. Fully renovated and equipped with the very latest services, the hotel offers all the amenities that the discerning guest who wants only the best would require. Ideally located in a fashionable part of the city, our hotel is just a few minutes away from Zurich's main railway station, the conference centre, the Hallenstadion multi-purpose facility, the Zurich exhibition grounds, the university and the ETH Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The 'Kronenstrasse' tram stop is just in front of our door. The journey to and from Zurich Airport takes just 20 minutes. Zurich's sights, such as the historic town centre, the Grossmünster (Great Minister), the Bahnhofstrasse main street and Lake Zurich, are just a comfortable five or ten minutes away. Our rooms range from the cosy and comfortable through to the top-quality and luxurious. The excellent restaurant, meeting facilities and banquet rooms make the Hotel Krone the ideal place for your next visit to the city.

Zurich was our last stop on a 4 week travelling tour in France and Switzerland. We wanted a comfortable, central hotel to finish off our busy month of travelling. Hotel Krone Unterstrass was just perfect for our needs. It is very close to the city centre, a few minutes tram travel (line 14) from the Hauptbahnhof (Zurich HB) The location is quieter than the immediate city centre but easily accessible, even when you are travelling with your suitcases on public transport. We had booked a Premium Double. We were given a room in the flash Townhouse section which is attached to the main hotel via corridor and lift. Our room had a kitchenette with fridge, a lovely roomy bathroom with shower, the most comfortable bed and loads of hanging space for clothes and a well placed desk which helped create privacy from the kitchenette and bathroom. The windows all opened and there were external electronically operated blinds. The rooms have climate control. It was more like an apartment than a hotel room. Fresh towels are left in a shopping bag at your door if you have the „Do not disturb“ sign hanging out. I thought that was a nice touch. We booked our room directly from the hotel website and found that they offered a much better deal than the commercial booking sites. We had one breakfast in their dining restaurant called „Differente“ and it was one of the best buffet hotel breakfasts we have had this trip. Around Euro 19 and well worth it. Our booking entitled us to a complimentary welcome drink in the restaurant which we had on our last evening at the hotel to round off our stay. The staff are polite and very professional and the foyer area is light and well situated. I also liked the computer and printer tucked away near the entrance which is accessible to guests for any reason, but particularly for flight check ins and printing boarding passes. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. We would stay here again.

The hotel is a stylish house with tradition and Swiss quality! The staff and service is top class, the rooms are spacious, quite despite the tram line running close and it was once more an enjoyable stay for me in Zürich.

This was our last day of Swiss holidays and we chose Hotel Krone Zurich but to our disappointment this was our worst choice. Their AC was not working and even after we complained they could not rectify it neither could theu shift us to another room due to full bookings. Not recommended.

Stayed here four nights. Nice hotel. Had a room on the fifth floor, very narrow bathroom, a larger room than the other room booked on second floor but that had a big bathroom so each room differs. The breakfast was average, small selection, you could order omlettes/ fried eggs/smoked salmon at extra cost. Some times service was slow. The restaurant at the hotel was of a high standard, we ate there twice, The receptionists were helpful with information, changing notes for coins and arranging for a late check out/ storing our luggage after check out. The hotels location was not central, we didnt mind this as we walked in to town- 20 minutes, there are tram stops outside if you wanted to use them instead, which is a plus for the hotel. One lift is a drawback but its an old building. Nice and quiet area and the hotel is quiet too at night.
