The good: - clean rooms - great location near train and old town (but at the top of a very steep hill) - quiet - good breakfast buffet in the restaurant - air conditioned - employees were all very nice The bad: - connecting to hotel wifi is a bizarre and unnecessarily complicated process - air conditioning shuts on and off constantly and makes annoying noises that woke me up - bathroom showers are awkward and difficult to use if you are tall - you have to insert your room key into a slot by the door in order to make the lights come on, which is inconvenient and pointless - pillows were very flat and blankets were so small that you have to use 2 just to cover the whole bed

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
I stayed here for 2 nights in May while traveling Europe with friends. The hotel is within a 10 min walk to ZURICH HB train station which was the BEST aspect for me because we rode the train everywhere, we even took it to the airport. The location is wonderful. In a quiet area but within an 8 min walk to old town Zurich with plenty restaurants and bars. The Muhlesteg bridge is also nearby, along with the Co-op grocery store. Perfect location. The room was very clean. We had a quadruple room which had an excellent layout for the 4 of us and very spacious. I would also point out with the other reviews that the hotel is atop of a hill and might pose a challenge for older people walking or those with lots of luggage. Breakfast was included in the rate, but i don’t not have it. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help. We had a small mistake with the room charge a week after we left and the staff was pleasant and fixed it right away. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in an Alpine Room which was very nice and clean. The walk in Shower was great. The breakfast was fresh. Location was very good for Old Town, Rail Station and Bus Station, and tram 10 was so convenient coming direct from the airport. and dropping you outside the hotel.

Dear CliffB64, Thank you for your kind words and a high rating on TripAdvisor. It's great you stayed in one of our recently renovated Alpine rooms. They all have an individual design and feature artwork by light artist Gerry Hofstetter. We tried to make our rooms as comfortable as possible, it's good to hear you enjoyed the walk-in shower with a rain shower head. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Leoneck Swiss Hotel and will make sure to provide you with another pleasant stay. Kind regards, Cedric Nake, Hotel Manager Leoneck Swiss Hotel

Just returned from a one-week stay at the Leoneck Hotel. As others have noted, the location is excellent because of closeness to the train station and ability to take Tram 10 both two short stops to the station and 30 minutes to and from the airport. Staff were friendly and helpful, especially Daniel, the young man in Reception who assisted me during check-in and check-out. The room was small but extremely well-equipped (refrigerator, kettle, good hair dryer, wardrobe with sufficient storage space and hangers) and everything worked. Loved having the cell phone, although I only used it in the hotel for fear of losing or dropping it if taken outside. Appreciated having at least three electrical outlets above the desk (no crawling on the floor to find an outlet to charge electronics). One negative about the room (single Alpine Comfort Room 610) was that the only window faced a wall. Impossible to see the sky - or anything else - and made the room dark and claustrophobic. However, this was the only room in this category available when I requested early check-in, so guess I can't complain. Breakfast was fine - hard to choose among all the appetizing breads and croissants. One reason for selecting this hotel was the availability of air-conditioning, which wasn't needed during my stay but would have been very welcome when temperatures were forecast in the mid and higher 80s on the days after my departure on June 2nd.

Dear Philly3413, Thanks for the review and five stars. Daniel and the team appreciate your positive comments about the service. We take pride in ensuring our guests feel welcome and relaxed. There are 14 rooms in the Alpine series decorated in a charming mountain chalet-style to create an alpine experience in the middle of the city. All the rooms are air-conditioned and have free internet access via in-room mobile — there is free WiFi throughout the hotel. We are officially the lowest-lying Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) hut in Switzerland. We hope you made use of our "Green Choice". For every overnight stay in which you forgo the full cleaning service, you receive a voucher worth CHF10, redeemable at Restaurant 8001. (Glad you enjoyed the breakfast offering.) The hotel is also committed to sustainable business practices and purchases all our power from 100% renewable energy sources. We are pleased you selected the Leoneck Swiss Hotel for your stay in Zurich, and look forward to seeing you again when you are next in the city. Kind regards, Cedric Nake, Hotel Manager Leoneck Swiss Hotel
