At least my room you entered through the bathroom, which is somewhat odd, and not ideal if outside it is rainy or snowy. The room was nice and clean, good wifi and a very nice breakfast buffet. Also an easy walking distance from the centre and well connected if you need to go to ETH honggerberg.

Dear Katrien S,
Many thanks for taking the time to give some feedback.
We are very glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay.
It is right that we have 3 rooms where you enter through the bathroom. Some people like this room so much that they want always the same room for every stay with us. If you visit us again we can give you for sure another nice room.
We hope that you will continue to recommend us and we thank you kindly.
Best wishes

Sadly we only had one night at this lovely hotel. Bit of an uphill work from the train station but well worth it. Room was good, staff extremely helpful, we had trouble accessing the internet but with the help of the staff we finally got it going. Breakfast was yummy and catered for most peoples needs. Definately would stay here again if we were in Zurich.

I had stayed here before and was really glad to choose Rex again.
If, for some reason, you do not like an idea to spend $ 500 - 600 per night in 4 or 5 star hotels in the very heart of Zurich, then pay attention to Rex.
Location is pretty good, it took me only 15 mins to get there (walking up the hill!) after I left the main station, and only 25 minutes to rich the lake next morning. Needless to say that a number of convenient tram connections is available if you prefer.
I was upgraded to a double (105) room , what was a nice surprise, and that room was spasious, with two windows, very clean and tidy. Pillows are very good and sleep is great!
Breakfast is decent and offers you everything from cereals and jogurts to cold meats, boiled eggs and great coffee. The choice is not wide but you won't be hungry for sure.
Reception area is cosy and warm, there is no lobby, but you have 3 or 4 tables with high chairs to enjoy a glass of wine or beer served by receptionist. I was lucky to be greeted by Yvonne, who is simply treasure and is a very helpfull young lady. Having a lot of questions and requests I was disturbing her during 15 mins at least and she managed to solve everything (including checking in my next day flight, printing out my boarding pass while serving me wine!) with a beautiful smile. Thank you Yvonne, I hope the hotel management acknowledges your value for their business.
The only reason why I can not rate the Rex as excellent hotel is that rooms (at least those two I stayed in) are not noiseproof and you can easily hear anything happening outside the building or in a neighbouring room. The sink in my bathroom was too small also.
Overall this hotel offers excellent value for money (you are in Zurich!) and I would willingly recommend it and will stay there again by myself.

We liked absolutely everything. We will recommend this hotel to our friends. If we will go to Zurich one more time then we will choose his hotel for sure. The brekfast was really tasty. The only thing that could be better is it's location. It is not far away from City Central Station ( only 15 min), but you need to go up. But with the nice wether it will bring you only plesure :)

Dear Oleksandr O,

We would like to thank you for the great comment that we were able to receive.
It is true - from the centre it is uphill to get to us but we also have two tram lines which stop just in front of the hotel so on hot/cold/rainy days it is fast and easy to get to us by public transport.
Hopefully you will continue to recommend us and maybe we can welcome you again soon.

Clean, spacious rooms, a sumptous spread for breakfast, comfortable bed and stylish decor are typical of decent hotels.
Hotel Rex has all of the aforementioned points.
But what took me by surprise is how attentive the hotel's staff are in catering to the needs of customers. We had missed our flights earlier in the day and ended up reaching hotel Rex late into the night. We needed a good rest before our flight home the next day. The staff was extremely empathetic to us after learning of our missed flight and she gave us one of their better and higher level rooms after we requested for la ate check out in order for us to rest longer.
Hotel staff do not accord such attention to customers these days, and all the more we should take the effort to praise front line staff who make an effort to ensure the customer goes home satisfied and happy.
hotel Rex did that. Kudos to you.

This hotel was absolutely perfect: close to the center of Zurich but in a quiet zone, very kind people, a very nice, huge and clean room with a beautiful bathroom. Try the selection of Swiss cheese at breakfast!!! :-)
PS: it wasn't expensive at all..!!
