Reviewed September 13, 2012

Excellent choice. No more than 6 minutes by tram from the main train station to directly in front of the hotel. Friendly, welcoming reception with Swiss percision like service. Room very clean and well appointed. One 3 day stay in the townhouse was fantastic. Pristine, quiet and beautifully decorated. The main hotel single room was small but adequate. If you can stay in the townhouse building, it is worth it. Would definetly stay here again on another visit to Zurich:)

Excellent value. Streetcar right in front of the hotel. Restaurant has excellent food compared to the sidewalk restaurants in the old section. Room is small but well appointed and clean. Shower is very small. Bed is low to the ground with no box spring, but is comfortable. Staff is very obliging and helpful. Breakfast buffet is very good, although it would be more interesting if they would cook some of the food to order. For the price that the hotel charges compared to what other hotels in Zurich charge, it is a bargain.

Hotel is three stops by tram (easy to figure out the lines) from the train station...we were in the townhouses which cost a bit more but they are huge...the size of a New York City Apartment.
Everyone in the hotel is fab...great value for the money and highly recommended.

Zurich itself is so expensive ($20) for a baked potato I might suggest taking a pass...although the art museum is world quality.

Room Tip: Get the town house for a little bit more.

Good value for money whit fine breakfast. Real single room in main builing and noisy street in front of the building. So the place has an excellent connection to city centre. Ask for car parking in advance for limited spaces around the house.

Stayed at the Krone for two nights while in Zurich for a congress. I had a single room in the main building over the courtyard. It was clean and confortable, the reception staff are super and couldn't be more welcoming. Really very practical if you are using public transport as two very regular trams from the main station stop on the doorstep. Would definitely go back if on my next visit to Zurich.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back seem more peacefull.

I stayed in this hotel for four nights during an international study session.
The location isn't bad at all as two trams will take you into town fairly rapidly. I had a room towards the back so it was quiet.
My room had been redone not long ago and I really liked it altho it was a bit small especially the bathroom. The double room are quite a lot bigger.
The staff was helpful and friendly.
The congress facilities are good.
What I liked most was the food. Breakfast is lovely and the two dinners we had were sublime! I hadn't eaten that well in quite a while.
Definitely a good place to stay!
