Our owner-managed hotel is ideally located in the middle of Zurich's Old Town - at just 5 minutes walking distance from the Central Railway Station.Virtually everything of interest is within short walking distance. Not just only Zurich's well-known landmarks but also the business quarters with the banks and shops, the high-end shopping district «Bahnhofstrasse», the university quarters, amongst them the ETH «Federal Institute of Technology», the car-free lake- and riverside promenades and many Cafés, bars and restaurants.The Hotel Alexander, renovated in February 2012, has more than 41 lavishly appointed and well tended non smoking rooms. Energy saving LED bulbs, a much enhanced panoramic view of the historic center thanks to its new windows, comfy beds and bright modern bathrooms turn your stay into a very enjoyable event.

This hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of town, with easy access to all amenities. The Main Station is almost opposite; just a stone’s throw away. The rooms are compact, but very clean and well-equipped. However, best of all are the staff, for which nothing is too much

Dear deidrerossouw We are very pleased that you have chosen Hotel Alexander for your stay. We would like to thank you very much for your evaluation on Tripadvisor. It is nice to read that you felt so comfortable with us and were satisfied with all the services we provided. It is nice that you could enjoy our central location. The location in the middle of the beautiful old town of Zurich means proximity to the main railway station, the Limmat and the lakeside promenade. The renowned Bahnhofstrasse as well as the university are within easy reach. And the variety of the culinary offer in Niederdorf can hardly be surpassed. We hope you will remember Zurich positively and look forward to welcoming you as our guest again. Many greetings from the beautiful old town of Laura and the entire Hotel Alexander team.
