Stayed at the hotel during Swiss visit. Clean and small. Efficient by Swiss standards. Front desk people were great. Good location and good price for Zurich hotels. The hotel has a small bar serving good food and drinks. All room accessories worked with out a problem.

We found this place on Hotels Tonight, just needed a quick one night stay in Zurich and with everything being really expensive, we were happy to have found this place. It's about a ten minute walk from the train station, also on the tram line, but even though it was up on the hill, it was a nice walk through... More

The Plattenhof is located in quiet street - just a few tram stops from either Bellevue square and the lake. It's a small independent hotel with very friendly and attentive staff. Some of the rooms are large and luxurious with contemporary furnishings. These represent a really good value in Zurich. Other rooms, however, are smaller and less luxurious, with low... More

A nice small hotel in a quiet area close to the University Hospital. Easily accessible from the center of the city with tram (#6). The lobby bar is small and cozy. My room was nice with two windows and the bathroom was clean. WiFi is complimentary. Breakfast was very good, a nice selection of hot and cold food. Staff were... More

The hotel is situated in the University district, which is central, but also quiet and beautiful. The hotel staff were so helpful and lovely and the breakfast was wonderful. Beds are really comfy - and such a stylish hotel! They offer the opportunity to get a free cocktail at the bar if you post a photo of the hotel on... More

We lucked out to find this lovely hotel close to central Zurich the weekend of the enormous Zuri Fest. It was close enough to access the festival easily, but far enough away that it was quiet at night. The staff was friendly, breakfast was a plentiful buffet, and the room was pleasantly appointed (with a very large bathroom and walk... More

We stayed a night in Zurich at the Plattenhof Hotel. It was about a 20 minute walk from the train station. A great room for the price! The customer service at the front desk was excellent!
