Hotel Krone Unterstrass
Ranked #18 of 138 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Good Points
1. V Clean Rooms
2. Service was excellent
3. Jessica (at reception) was a little gem. Great personality & also a great help.
4. Restaurant seems very nice
5. We asked for a room change & they assisted without a hesitation.

Bad Points
1. Rooms are very basic. Although good value for money for Zurich, it felt more like staying in an upper class YMCA than a 4* star hotel
2. Not located as close to the city centre as some web-sites claim, but a tram outside the hotel does take you direct into the city centre, or you can walk in within 15-20 mins.
3. Just not a very charming hotel at all.
4. We found the beds a little on the hard side - but this is just preference related.

I just cannot really recommend this if you are going for a romantic weekend in Zurich, which is a shame because the staff were just super nice and super helpful

Room Tip: Do not expect world class comfort, but do expect a clean room.

Stayed here for 4 nights late in September. The hotel room is very clean and has everything you need. Located just 2 tram stops from the main train station/ The buffet breakfast was great and had alot of variety. The staff at the hotel were more than helpful, suggesting places to see makin sure we had a great stay. Would recommend highly!!!!

We are staying in this hotel tonight and fly out of Zurich tomorrow. We are very happy with the hotel as it is extremely well located approximately 2kl from the central railway station and the city centre, with a tram stop directly in the front of the hotel. The tram system is very easy to use and we have travelled in and out of the city centre several times. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean with lovely comfortable beds. They also have a mini fridge which is very handy.

Great hotel a short tram ride away from the centre. Staff are friendly and helpful. Clean, modern rooms, but outside noise can sometimes be a problem. Stayed there many times and personally I prefer rooms in the main building. The 'Townhouse' rooms have an annoyingly placed wardrobe/desk/tv right in the middle of the room, taking up valuable space. Do 'designers' ever spend a night in the hotel rooms they've 'designed'? They really should! Otherwise a very nice hotel and location.

Great location. Serviced by 3 tram lines (two right at the front door, a third a block away) that go downtown, to the airport (with one switch), to the big train station (Hauptbanof). Only a half-hour's walk to downtown, a bit shorter to Universty of Zurich. And about a 20-minute walk to West Zurich, an area worth exploring.

Room (in main hotel, not townhouse) was perfectly adequate...electricity, plumbing, wifi, TV, air conditioning all worked fine. Beds comfortable. Closet space good enough. I speak only English and had no trouble communicating with staff either at front desk or in the restaurant. Good breakfast buffet (we stuck to the "smaller one"--baked goods and cereals -- without going for the complete one which includes eggs, cheeses, fresh fruit).. There's also a supermarket a few doors to your left as you walk out the hotel's front oor, and agood-enough coffee shop/bakery two blocks further (speaking the local language is helpful but not totally critical in both).

And the price was phenomenally good.

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:)
