Hotel Arlette Beim Hauptbahnhof

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 8, 2013

You can walk from the main train station or the old part of Zurich in about 3 minutes to the Arlette.
Everyone is very helpful, the room we stayed was nice clean and had every amenities you come to expect. The breakfast consist of a Breadbasket with your choice of jam and honey and cheese, and if not had enough they bring you gladly more.

as all reviews state..only 5 minute walk from Bahnhof. Easy pleasant walk through shopping center, old city, and restaurant center. Zurich is EXPENSIVE! This hotel is less so and very adequate...Would recommend for "value travelers."

Family owned and run, staff were pleasant and caring. Our room was on the 4th floor, accessed by a tiny lift, but at least there was a lift. When I asked for a quiet room, I was told they had none, but the bit of street noise in the morning did not bother us, and noise from any nightlife was far enough away not to disturb. Bathroom was small but clean. Bed was adequate. Extra pillows provided, as requested.

The decor is a bit dated, even tired, but clean and adequate for our 2-night stay. WiFi worked well. Breakfast consisted of minimal breads, juice and coffee.

For the money, for the location, this hotel was just what we needed in Zurich.

A short walking distance from the train station. Clean, friendly, good breakfast, good room and a fair price. Quick to help with questions about trains, maps, etc. It is in the center of the city with plenty of shops, attactions, restaurants, etc. It has a local feel- not a chain hotel.

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.
