“Practical and convenient”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed only one night at this hotel. We found the 2 baby cots we asked for, and had a very clean and comfortable room. Nothing luxurious, but very practical as it was very close to Zurich downtown. Good place to stay.

Excellent value in Zurich with courteous staff. Very clean and spacious rooms for European hotel. Great breakfast. We were traveling with 3 children and the hotel provides us with cots at no additional charge. A 10 minute walk from central Zurich (although uphill).

We were only in Zurich for 1 evening before an early morning flight. This location was easy to reach via a tram from the main train station (#7 - which passes right in front the hotel with the stop less than a block away) and also easy to reach the airport (either #7 back to the train station for a train to the airport, or #7 tram north with a change to #10 tram - very easy to do). only caution - the website indicates the hotel is 15 minutes from the airport, perhaps driving it is - however, if using the 2 trams, plan on 30 minutes door to door. We were there on a very warm evening, so the reduction in a star is because the hotel doesn't have A/C - but the front desk was very happy to provide us with a fan when requested, and the WiFi use in the room was quite complicated.

The Sorell Hotel Rex was perfectly located. Walking distance to the central station and bus depot or a quick couple of minutes on the tram that went past the front door. The tram the other way is only a couple of stops from the tram that takes you directly to the airport. I stayed at a time when Zurich was experiencing an unusual heatwave of 35 celsius plus days in a row so had to get a fan to be able to sleep which was no fuss. Food and service were excellent. Room was clean and a comfort to wander back to after touring the city.

Room Tip: My experience was positive and I would stay there again.

It was really very very hot day. Over 34 Celsius in the evening. That is why the only one minus of this hotel was no air conditions at the room.
Nice, quiet place, not far from the city center 10 - 12 min walk, or you can take a tram.
It war very good to drink one nesspreso before the walk to the city.
Excellent breakfast. The small glass of sparkling wine was the icing on the cake.
Parking just over the street, on request.

Dear janbezziemi,
Thank you for leaving this very good review about our hotel on tripadvisor.
We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us. You are right we do not have an air condition which is a minus in a heatwave as we have it this summer but we do have two room categories which have small air coolers which help a lot.
Just let us know when you come to Zurich next time so we can make you a suitable offer.
We are looking forward to welcoming you again!

Now and again, I have occasion to spend a day or two in Zurich on either business or pleasure, and for both, this hotel is the place of choice to stay for me. The rooms are reasonably priced, which is a relief, considering that you pay through your nose for about everything else in Zurich.
Located next to two tram lines that take you anywhere that counts in the city, the hotel itself is a showcase of Swiss efficiency and cleanliness.
My room wasn't very big, but had a comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom, which was really all I needed. In the shower I found a cute rubber duck which I was encouraged to keep as a souvenir. What a nice idea, and I guess in the long run it's cheaper than replacing towels. ;)
Breakfast was nothing fancy, but ample; a buffet with everything you might need or want. It helped carry me over without lunch, which is how I like it best when travelling.
