I missed the last train to Geneva and tried over 10 hotels around the station, but all were full or too expensive. Finally found hotel Arlette and a very kind night concierge who found me a single room that was clean and comfortable for the few hours before the morning train. He even phoned me in the morning to make sure I didn't miss my train, and gave me a discount because I missed breakfast. It was 2 minutes to train so very convenient and cheaper than other similar hotels that were more 'red light'. However during this 'adventure' I did meet many kind night concierges who even offered me a couch for the night when they were full, to keep me off the streets!

hotel arlette is situated just 2 mins walk from the main train station of zurich. it's also around 10-15 mins to the main shopping and tourist areas of the city. the hotel itself is very small, the room i stayed in was on the 5th floor. the lift was tiny but functional. the room is small but very clean and comfortable. it also comes with an air con which is useful. there is also a small lcd tv with all german channels except for cnn. the bathroom is small but clean with a shower.
the breakfast is very basic with a serving of pastries, orange juice and tea/coffee.
I can't really fault its location, you can walk everywhere from the hotel.
the receptionist is very friendly and the stay comes with free wifi. it's a comfortable and clean albeit small and getting a little bit old.

The hotel is a two-minute walk from the main train station, and is at short walking distance from the city center, museums and shopping streets.
The room was clean and cozy, included an air conditioner and a mini bar, a desk and a very comfortable bed. Despite the central location, it was very quiet.
The breakfast was simple but sufficient- breads and spreads.
The stuff was very friendly and helpful (e.g. when i asked to store my luggage after check-out).
Overall- highly recommended, especially for short visits when proximity to the center is valuable.

Loved the fact that it is so close to main train station.Centrally located and walking distance from important sites.Staff very helpfull and friendly and always replied promptly to my emails and sent me a map of how to get to the hotel from station.A map is also available in room of all the important landmarks walking distance from hotel.Super clean rooms and there is really nothing to complain about.I stayed there again after a train trip from Zurich to Milan and back.

My wife and I chose this hotel by its proximity to the train station and TripAdvisor ratings. The rooms are terribly over-priced in my opinion, but that is simply the way it is in Zurich AND this hotel was among the least cost ones I could find close to the train station.
The room size was adequate and was very quiet. The front desk folks were friendly and helpful. Wireless Internet was free, but required separate logins/passwords for each electronic device (bit of a nuisance). Among our few complaints were a) too few electrical outlets, way too soft pillows, and a spartan complimentary breakfast (bread, juice, coffee/tea).
