“Music loud until midnight”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

On a Sunday evening, we had to get down in the loby (which is a bar ... as well) in order to have the techno music decreased.
The day after, when telling the responsible person about this, she said: "Oh I'll tell the barman to stop".

Well, thank you...

We got to the hotel early, but luckely our room was ready. It's placed in Old Town, and very close to the central station, about 5-10 minutes walk.

We lived on the second floor, and shared (two) toilets with 5 other rooms, but it was no problem at all, and we didnt experience any waiting time. Our room was not that big, but had a big flatscreen TV, a balcony and a queensize bed, we didn't had towels/robe for two persons, but the staff fixed it right away.

The breakfast was simple but really good, not to much to choose from, but it was actually okay, I prefere quality over too many choices. The bar is good at evening/night time and the prices are more or less like everything else in Zürich.

The location is great, and it is in walking distance to most of the things there are to see. Nearby are many restaurants and bars + a minimarked where you can buy water, fruit and other small necessities.

It can be a bit noisy outside, if you leave the door to the terrace open, but again, it was not really a big problem! They took care of our luggage till we had to home, so all in all a great service and really friendly staff.

And as a bonus, free Wifi - really good connection!

I added a last-minute two-night Zurich trip to the end of a European holiday so I could see friends. I found the Platzhirsch on hotels.com and made my reservation based mostly on the relatively cheap price of 170 Swiss francs a night. That's "relatively cheap" in Zurich.
The hotel is unobtrusive and well located within walking distance from the main train station. I find Zurich confusing, but an interesting place to walk with a mixture of architecture. No one I asked knew where it was.
My small room was on the top (5th) floor. It had a clean shower and sink, but the toilet was shared by the other rooms on the floor. Wifi and a good TV were included. They had a voltage converter I could borrow, but no iron. The bar was good, but cocktails ran around 13-15 francs. The bartendress was helpful and cute. There a lot of restaurants very close by.

we stayed 2 nights here. our room was right next to the elevator shaft, didn't get a good sleep listening to the lift going up and down, and door opening and closing. the next day, we made a complaint and got switched to a better room, much quieter. the hotel is in the old town, the big bell nearby chimes from time to time. It's very close to the main train station, the tram, the river and the lake. a lot of restaurants, cafes and shops around. breakfast included.

Ok stay.
Positive comments- central location , fridge with complimentary drinks, decent breakfast, clean, nice toiletries quiet even on 2nd floor, wifi is gd, apples and sweets on the bed was a nice welcomin touch.
Negative comments- main receptionist had a major attitude problem. There were clean rooms available but she would not let me check in due to some policy. I arrived at 11am .... She handed me the keys at 1201noon sharp.
Beware as she also has an attitude when she loans you the complimentary hotel adaptor. Clearly telling me quote "don't return me your adaptor, it is bad, return me my adaptor" unquote ...... U know, we all love stealing Swiss adaptors cos all the international adaptors are "bad".

Good choice if you want to stay in the old town. Modern hip Hotel bar and very helpful staff especially Anna. The breakfast was great and the fresh croissants definitely absolutely the best croissants I had in Zurich. We had the upgraded room and it was spotless with a good selection of soft drinks in the minibar. The only problem is the noise during the summer months as you have to have the windows open (no AC). But if you in Zurich to party until 3-4 AM then this won't bother you. I recommend it mainly for a youngish traveler.
