My stay was OK. The rooms were modern and clean. I had shared bathroom/shower but a sink in the room. The breakfast was ok, they weren't helpful with me being vegan, so I bought some groceries and brought to the breakfast place. Overall too expensive in my opinion for a single room with shared bathroom/shower. The best part was the... More

I wanted to visit Zurich and was intimidated by seeing so many hotels in the $300 to $500 per night range. I don't have Swiss Bank account money so I was trilled to find this hotel. It is in a good area close to the main train station and walking distance to most of the town. I paid $110 per... More

Stayed here for a week in September. The hotel itself is staffed by nice people. The property is a cleanly run hotel, with rooms that have basic (if not Spartan) furnishings. Our group stayed in a triple, as rooms are very expensive in Zurich. The furniture was basic, but clean. The rooms lack electrical outlets, if you bring a lot... More

It's been several times, that I stayed here. The reason is that it is close to my office. Did not expect much from the hotel, so basically it was OK. Last time I got a room on the top floor, that room was very small, and did not look that nice. (before I was on the 2nd floor, those rooms... More

It is not easy to evaluate this hotel, since it has many important pros but also a few important cons. Pros: It is very well-located (a ten minutes walk to Zurich's Main Station), the staff members are very nice and attentive and the rooms are clean and comfortable (plus the free Wi-Fi). Cons: The hotel is located near a church... More

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
