Clean hotel, clean and fairly spacious rooms, furniture and decoration outdated though (noisy ventilation in bathroom). Friendly and helpful staff. Good location, 10 minutes from centre by tram. Can be noisy if you get a room on the street's side, so request one in the back (you'll also benefit a small terrasse). Food not tested. A little overpriced, but this is Zurich... Would be a second choice for a romantic escapade.

This hotel sits on a main tram line which runs almost 24 hours a day. Even with your windows shut you will struggle to get any sleep if you are in a room at the front of the hotel,

After my first night's stay I requested to be moved to a quieter room where I would be able to get at least an hours sleep! I was told by the reception staff that they could move me to a room at the back of the hotel but this would be an upgrade and cost more per night. No amount of arguing changed their mind about whether they would charge me or not.

So, I paid more, moved rooms to an identical room at the back (functional but with no room heat controls to be found). I expected a nice relaxed nights sleep, but no. Directly behind the hotel is a church which rings it's bells EVERY 15 minutes, 24 HOURS a day!

If you want a quiet night's sleep DO NOT stay at the Leonardo - you will be tearing your hair out with sleep deprivation by the end of your trip!

Oh, and no clocks in the room - what's that all about?!

I recently stayed at the Rigihof Leonardo in early August for 3 nights. I had a great room with a nice little balcony/table/chairs that was much enjoyed. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spotless. Nice bathroom, great water pressure to the shower, nice toiletries and immaculate.

The room does not have AC and may get warm on hot summer days, but I found the fan sufficient for keeping the room cool. The shades do an amazing job of blocking the light when closed. The window can be vented for good cross ventilation. The balcony is small but was much enjoyed...request a superior room at the back of the hotel, a small upgrade & quieter and I believe most of those rooms have a balcony. A good choice for the spring through fall months.

The room has a well stocked mini-bar with beer, water, soda, wine etc. and comes in handy for storing cheese etc. that can be purchased at the COOP right doen the street and eaten on your balcony!

There is a buisness center with wi-fi accessibility, not sure as to charge...my brother used it and was happy with cost and performance.. Access to internet for small amounts of time at no charge in hotel lobby.

The hotel is on tram line 10 which stops perhaps 100 yards or less from the Rigihof. Very handy, goes directly to the Haufbahn Zurich train station. From there you can walk easily around the Old Town and down the Bahnhofstrausse for shopping, or, get trams anywhere in the city. I highly recommend getting a tram card for comprehensive tram travel while staying in Zurich if you are there for several days, about 8 chf per day and well worth it. These can be purchased at the train station. It is very easy to get around Zurich on the trams, a wonderful and very user friendly system and like everything seems to be in Switzerland clean & efficient!

My room included breakfast which was very comprehensive and good. Cold meats, cheeses and breads, wonderful fresh fruits etc. and excellent coffee. Hot cooked to order items require an additional charge. There are hard boiled eggs on the buffet if you want eggs but don't want to pay for cooked to order.

Room price paid was about 215 and included breakfast, this is a good value in Zurich. Hotel staff was very friendly and very efficient. It is located slightly away from the center of town, but one can be in the old town area in less than 10 minutes...closer to 5 in actuality. Trams are frequent!. The back of the hotel was quite quiet and all in all the stay was very much enjoyed, and I would definitely stay here again for the service and value in Zurich.

As an aside, there is a restaurant/pub with outdoor seating next door that is a great place to either dine or enjoy a beverage. Great service food and reasonable. Wonderful flat bread style pizzas, quiche, rosti, sausages, and the pommes frites were fabulous. House green salad excellent. They have English printed menus if you ask. Beer, Prosecco, mixed drinks as well. Everything I saw served or was served was excellent. Much happiness by a group inside enjoying very large mugs of beer! Great little spot and right next door to the Rigihof.

Great little hotel and a great value. Much enjoyed the stay.

You know that at the Leonardo Rigihof that you're not staying in a bland 3/4* Holiday Inn, Mercure or Hilton. The hotel exterior is Bauhaus style and, with all credit to the management, the style is carried on low-key throughout the hotel. The individual room motifs based on local famous people, is an excellent idea. The hotel probably needs a little investment now to refresh it, but it's still fine by us. Breakfast was very good, with hot options cooked to order. Rooms at rear were generally quieter than front - though, even at rear, you must expect some noise - deliveries, waste collections - Zurich is an "early to work" city.

We bought a 72hr "go anywhere" ZurichCARD - Trams (Airport direct to Hotel, Hotel to Town), Train (HB to Uetliberg), Trip on Lake, Trip on Limmat, Entrance to Kunsthaus.... all included. A Bargain!

Would definitely stay at the Rigihof again.

The hotel is clean, modern and the staff are very friendly. However, the hotel is on a busy road that includes streetcars going by every few minutes. It is also close to the university hospital so there's a good share of ambulances with sirens whizzing by, and finally, there was construction on a nearby road that added to the noise. Unfortunately, the hotel (or at least my room) does not have air conditioning which meant you needed the windows open otherwise you'd melt. Not what I expected.
