We came to Switzerland (and central Europe) partly to check out the Christmas markets, and Hotel Wellenberg seemed perfectly situated in Zurich's old town, right next to one of the town squares (Hirschenplatz) with its own Christmas market.

The hotel is located in the "old" part of the city in between restaurants and trendy shops but still quiet at this time of year. It might be a different story in summer. The location is good since the main city is a 5-10 min walk across the river or a short tram ride. The hotel is renovated although some... More

Situated right in the middle of the old part of Zurich this was a great place to base a weekends trip. The staff were fantastic and the communal areas well appointed.
