Although this is a riverside hotel, no room has a view of the river, as the front rooms are all offices. interestingly, the room had a proper lock/key - no wavy card that goes phut at the first opportunity (you have to remember to lock it on way out though). Usual absence of kettle/coffee in room, and there was no...

I booked a single room for a friend, it has everything one needs to have a brief stay in Zürich. We spent most of the time outside exploring the city, and the location is very convenient for that. Perfect for a budget-traveller!

Stayed here for two nights in MAY 2016. The hotel is at convenient location, close to zurich main railway station. But it is old dated hotel, basic facilities. We found rooms to be noisy even at higher floors as hotel is right at the tram stop and signal junction. Did not try breakfast/restaurant. It was warm when we stayed and...

Bad service, dirty rooms, awful breakfast. The place is well located but I wouldn't recommend it. First of all if you're disabled or have a big luggage it would be impossible for you to get into the hotel cause it has like 20 steps at the entrance. Wifi doesn't work well and the staff can be rude.

I usually book at Limmathof because it is perfectly stituated with a short stroll from the main station and because it is the cheapest hotel you can get in Zurich's center. Depending in what part of the hotel you end up in you make a trip back to the 70s or 80s. The room have the charms of a youth...

It is in the center of Zürich, close to the main attractions and to Hauptbshnhof. The room is tidy, not small at all, and it is cleaned everyday. The toilet is also big and very, very clean, but it has no bidet nor phon. The reception is always friendly and happy to help. I've felt at home.

The structure is perfect if you are coming from the station and the position is amazing to visit the center of Zurich. The room was cool, and we had no problems. The staff was very nove and we felt like at home. The price is good compared to the other hotels of Zurich. Starbucks is just next to the structure,...

If you are looking for a hotel close to Bahnhof Central station, this is the place. Its literally across the street. A close walk to restaurants and shops as well. So its not fancy at all, it's a basic hotel but everything works and its clean. Its not new so dont expect luxury. Zurich hotels are pricey, so taking that...
