Reception staff gave very little information about the hotel & it's restaurants & facilities, no menu in the room for the food, 1.5 kilometers from any restaurants except for a fast food across the street, the area was far from clean. to expensive for the sevice & emplacement.

This hotel is close to Main Railway station and it has lot of restaurants and markets in walking distance. Worth for paying. Don't expect much facilities in hotel as it is very old. Front desk staff was not pleasant, they just work like machine.

Hotel is basic but very clean. No air conditioning but there was a fan in the room.Our room had an ensuite but not all rooms do. Reception staff are very helpful. Great location as there is a tram stop directly outside the hotel. Would definately recommend this accommodation.

Zurich is not a cheap city, in fact its said to be the most expensive city in the world. We were in Zurich for one night to go to a concert and booked the Hotel Xtra. It's well located close to the train station and on a tram route with a tram stop very close by. There are plenty of... More

I stayed twice at the X-TRA Hotel and overall my experience has been pleasant. Please note that in the very expensive city of Zürich, X-TRA hotel is a very good budget choice if you don't mind sharing a bathroom. First of all, the bedrooms are good. Since I had been there twice and got two different bedrooms (both with shared... More

The staff here were very friendly. This hotel is one street over to the train and very close to the rest of the city. We walked everywhere. There is free wifi, but for breakfast you have to pay. Great option for travel on a budget.

Very simple and in not updated. Rooms are noisy from the tram, poorly sound proofed. The TV is prehistoric and really small. Have not seen a tube TV for ages. However. It is clean and everything is working, room size is also OK There are better places for the price.

The rooms are equipped with only bare necessities. Rooms more resembles like wooden cabins. Bath room and toilet are congested. Breakfast is arranged across the road in a small joint and not something great. The hotel is situated close to the starting point of city tour and to the rail station. There are a few Indian restaurants nearby.

The X-TRA hotel is a short walk from the main train station and is on the tram line if you have a lot of luggage. We have stayed there many times. The rooms are a good size and a clean and bright and the staff are helpful. Try to get a room on the opposite side from the church as... More
