4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent location: in short walking distance from the main train station, and also very close to the Limmat river and to a number of clothing stores, restaurants etc. in the old city. Very clean; my room was very comfortable and the bathroom amenities more than adequate. The personnel was very friendly and polite, and always willing to answer questions and... More

I had an excellent stay at this hotel, the room was clean, the service excellent and the breakfast generous (I was there early). I appreciated the comfort of the room with simple yet thoughtful furnishings. Everything I needed was here. The toiletries were again both generous and thoughtful. The location was second to none and made for a very pleasant... More

We recently stayed at this hotel (room 101) for 3 nights at the end of a trip to Europe. We chose this hotel based on its location, earlier reviews, and a desire to stay in a more "authentic" hotel than one of the big chains. Unfortunately the only thing right about the Rutli is its location. I will try not... More

Great location (short walk to Hbf and other attractions, restaurants, shopping etc), polite staff and modest breakfast BUT - Air conditioning was broken. We checked in on a a hot and humid Sunday night in July and were told it would be fixed on Monday. Come Monday night, still no relief! We were advised to keep the window open for... More

There was a very rude old woman working in the breakfast area who told us we had to clean the bread from the table we didn't even put there and then she didn't bring my coffee although i had ordered one. It felt like because i was a younger woman i didn't get the same good service as the older... More

The hotel room itself was acceptable at best. The room was across the street from a bar, and there was shouting and partying until way into the morning hours. We had to have the window closed in order for it to be quiet enough for us to sleep. There was no air conditioning or fan working. We asked about it... More

A comfortable hotel located in Old Town near Niederdorfstrasse. We did walk from the train station. You do have to cross over several tram sections and a bridge. It is doable while pulling bags. We arrived early. The only room available was a ‘handicap’ room on the 1st floor. The bathroom was definitely large for a wheelchair, but the rest... More

This hotel was expected to be just an adequate hotel convenient to the main train station...although the air conditioning was not great for as hot a day as they had the day I arrived, who knew I would need a room with regular A/C in Switzerland!

It is in the best location, very close to the pedestrian area in the old city and parallel to the main shopping street. Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and the service was very friendly and efficient .
