Well situated by the Bahnhof (Railwaystation) in Aarau. Rooms clean and modern. However lobby and other area are somewhat grey and tight. Plenty of restaurants in the surroundings. Breakfast at the hotel good. Great wellness area in the basement! Worth the visit!

The Sorrell Hotel was the salvation of the day. We left Strasbourg for a meeting in the early morning and were hoping to find easier a place at the road to sleep. We found 4 hotels before finding this one, bt they all were closed for check in, which was only possible until 10pm. it was quite expensive, but we... More

I stayed here on a business trip. If you are flying into Zurich it is a 30 mins train journey from the airport and the Hotel is situated on the Plaza next to the station.

The hotel is located next to the railway station and bus stops, so ideal for public transportation. It is a clean,bright, neutral business hotel with comfortable beds,roomy, quiet and clean wellness area and good breakfast. The doors of the rooms do not only look ugly but there is no way to close them without banging them loud - that is... More

Stayed overnight in October 2015. The hotel sits on a plaza next to the railway station and so is very handy especially if you have luggage. The welcome was friendly and efficient - I arrived early and was able to access my room earlier than you would normally be able to. This was done without any fuss and I was... More

This has to have been one of the most basic, yet functional hotels I have ever visited. The room I stayed in could only be described as a cube, with a comfortable and warm bed, 1 pillow, no a/c, but a window that opened onto a very noisy precinct in front of the hotel. The room was very clean, so... More

This is a very simple and basic hotel, suffering from the minimise approach. Rooms have one pillow, no air-con, but are clean and fine for one night. Hotel has no lounge or bar away. Small spa but no gym. The hotel is noisy at night with local bars and a bus station open very late.

The hotel wasn't quite what we expected unfortunately! Despite what the pictures show online it was very clinical and obviously better suited to a corporate stay than a leisure one. The room was ok however didn't have any tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was average, nice pastries however the cooked breakfast was terrible, the scrambled egg very over... More

We along with family & group through Thomas Cook reached Switzerland at this Hotel and find that even its heavy summer season rooms were without any coiling arrangement like AC or even fan, which should be arranged based on local temperature and have to accommodate in bad weather with worst grade of breakfast...
