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. It is the perfect place for an overnight stay after a visit to the Zurich trade fair or for your business event.

The Hotel Krone is conveniently located in Zurich with immediate access to the trams. The rooms are well appointed and many remodeled. The onsite restaurant provides an excellent breakfast buffet. We are repeat customers for the hotel and have looked forward to the excellent service through the years.

Was planning to have a two day stopover in Zurich on the way from Italy to the UK. As traffic/parking in Zurich seems to have become more difficult since my student days there I was looking for a hotel with GUARANTEED parking, a reasonable price and not too far from the Centre. Parking is good albeit in some of the places they have a bit tight if you have a very large car. Were assigned a room (301) which really looked a bit small. The night portier did an excellent job to show/put us into another room (34), it was in the new annexe, much more spacious and bright, has kitchenette (not used) - I guess for long-stay rental. 2 comments - shower curtain too short, so easy to splash water on floor (they said it shrinks over time when washed), also the sink in the washhand basin was bit congested, so water took while to empty - mentioned but no immediate action. Breakfast VERY good, the ladies do a great job, also the Concierge. One very good sapect - two tramlines stop right in front of hotel, so you get to town centre in next to no time, even all the way through Bahnhofstrasse and the Lake

good hotel but the staff was RUDE. it was actually shocking how little they seemed to care about anything. the rooms are very small and the bathroom doors are basically see through so just beware of that going in. gutes Hotel, aber das Personal war unhöflich. Es war tatsächlich schockierend, wie wenig sie sich um irgendetwas zu kümmern schienen. Die Zimmer sind sehr klein und die Badezimmertüren sind im Grunde durchsichtig, also passen Sie auf, dass Sie nicht hineingehen.

This was a first trip to Zurich for my wife and I. There are plenty of other hotels, but I won't ever find out, because this one was near perfect. Tram strops directly in front of hotel, and it was a painless four minute ride to the "Old Town" and harbor/main train station. The staff was super professional, courteous, and very helpful. I never felt we were putting them out with our requests. Breakfast was superb, best on our European vacation. Room was modern, clean, and well equipped. We had some issues with air conditioning (weak) but it may have just been our expectation. Staff tried hard to get it working, and brought us a fan as well. If I could take a 1/2 star off, I would, but it was not enough to warrant dropping to four stars. I would highly recommend the Hotel Krone.

Stayed for two nights. There were three of us and we got a lovely room with two double beds. The staff at the front office were exceptionally nice and helpful. We ate one meal at the restaurant and it was superb. The tram stop was at the doorstep and Bahnhoffstrasse was just a short ride away.

This was my second trip to Zurich (in less than 6 months), and I was looking for a quiet hotel this time for a longer stay of 8 nights. I was not disappointed! I had room number 15, which was in a separate building in their courtyard (connected by a walkway), away from the main street/tram. The room was very clean and smart looking, all amenities worked (lights, plumbing, A/C). An electric tea kettle was provided with an assortment of teas and instant coffee, and there was a small refrigerator. My bathroom came with a small, corner shower with a curtain and drain in the floor. Water pressure was excellent with on-demand hot water. The front staff was exceptionally cordial, helpful and spoke perfect English.The location for this hotel is outstanding: right on the train/tram 11 or 14, direct to the Zurich HBF in 5 minutes! I did not use the restaurant at all, but it looked nice and inviting from the outside. The only improvements I could wish for are the following: 1) a small microwave oven; 2) silverware (fork, soup spoon, butter knife); 3) an extra handtowel and washcloth. Would *definitely* stay here again! Thank you.

Really loved this hotel! Great location: short ride from the train station, short walk to the old town, many wonderful restaurants, the river, shopping and tourist areas are all within walking distance. The rooms are very modern and have everything one needs: comfortable bed, a safe, nice-sized closet, a coffee maker, a very fancy crystal drinking water decanter and glass, plenty of clean towels and outlets. It has a cute bar downstairs and a wonderful restaurant that is listed among the best in the city! Service is fantastic as well. Quick and easy check-in, check-out. Very polite, friendly and courteous staff. Spotless bathrooms. Pleasant decor and ambiance. I asked for an iron and it was brought up to my room, along with the ironing board, within 5 minutes. There was a buzzing noise in my room during the first night, I asked them to check it out - fixed by the time I came back from exploring Zurich. And they have fresh fruit at the reception for guests! Nothing but great things to say about the hotel. Can't wait to be back!

This Hotel should be rated as 5 Star. It has excrptional service, quick attendance on desk, really friendly & helpful staff and super FAB rooms! The receptionist was so helpful in guiding us to visit local attractions and kept flagging how the ambience will be at the place and what time would be best. The hotel facility is top notch and rooms are super clean and spacious. It is placed right in the heart of Zurich and every place you might want to visit is almost on a walking distance. I am definetely coming back again by end of this year for another amazing break and the best time of my life. Kudos to the entire team and management of the Hotel for doing such an amazing job by providing excellent hospitality! 10/10
