Reviewed October 21, 2012

I picked this hotel because tram no. 10, that stops outside the hotel, runs to the international airport in 20 minutes. Rooms are very clean and the decor is very nice, probably the nicest of all the hotels I've stayed in during this trip. My kids love the big LCD TV (which was a nice change compared to the 14 inch CRT TVs in some of the other hotels). There's also a very nice university park across the road, great place for a stroll.

However, do note that it's a 10 minutes tram ride to the city centre so some may prefer to stay in the city itself and just walk to and from the hotel.

The staff are very friendly, professional and very helpful. The only complaint I have is that breakfast at SF 15 is slightly spartan, especially after the great spread we had at Neuhaus hotel in Interlaken. However, this is Zurich so guess it's a more expensive city.

Room Tip: Attic rooms for family have great views !

We stayed 3 nights here for sightseeing in Zurich.

Pros: It takes only 7-10 minutes tram (no 14) between hotel and station Bahnhof HB. Where you can enjoy your walk in Bahnhof-strasse, Burkli-platz and the old down. The hotel is very clean, quiet with home feel. Free wifi. Service is good with free apple supplied. Room rate should be economy in Zurich.

Cons: The room is comparatively small. Room door is not automatically locked that you have to bring room key outside.

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip do Zurich. I actually picked it based on the location of my business meeting. It's a bit far from the center, you will need to take a tram to reach it, however, there are several and they are very frequent. The room was very small, bed was OK, mini bar was full. Actually sleep quality could have been much improved if they simply had a normal set of bedsheets instead of simply the down comforter inside a duvet. So it was either too hot or too cold (w or w/o) and I kept waking up during the night...
It was clean, breakfast was very basic (and 15F a day).
Overall, considering the prices of the hotels in Zurich I would stay here again.

This is a clean, efficient, conveniently located hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff. We were guests of the University of Zürich and did not see the bill so we can't comment on value, except, it seems others are content with the price.

Typically sturdy Swiss windows (that can be opened for fresh air), and a sound and light resistant electronic shutter system, helped make sleeping easier. The living area and bathrooms were not large, but certainly satisfactory, and the shower was excellent!

I would like to single out a man named Remo in particular; he works at the desk in the evenings. The fellow has a great sense of humor and was able to joke and kid in English; I'm sure he can pull this off in other languages too. He loaned us a power converter, a special pillow for my wife, and helped us navigate the super convenient tram system. I wish I knew the name of the woman who serviced the breakfast buffet because she does a spectacular job! The offerings were quite good and fresh too! This was far more than a simple continental breakfast, and included an assortment of fresh breads, croissants, pastries, jams (including Lite), yogurt, fresh fruit, Birchermüesli, nuts, boiled eggs, cold cereals, meats, cheeses, coffee, espresso, and a variety of teas.

Room Tip: Our room was #308 and we were very happy with it!

The Coronado Hotel is a very nice hotel; clean, and on the tram line-great for travel ease! Our room did not have air conditioning, but my brother's room across the hall did-strange!! Our room did have a nice floor fan and that was wonderful-didn't miss the a.c.!! Our room was very nice and the bed, very comfortable! The hotel staff is kind and helpful! We enjoyed the lemonade and coffee provided in the lobby! The outside doesn't reflect the inside so don't worry when you first see the hotel front-not that it is bad, but it could use a little freshening up!!!! Stay here, you won't be disappointed and the price pretty good for Zurich!

This hotel is at the Milchbuck tram interchange, meaning you can get from the airport to here, directly in 20 min; and the same line gets you directly to downtown in 10 min. The University is a 10 min walk through a delightful park. So the location is ideal.
The reception were pleasant and efficient, and our room was modern, clean and delightful. We found ourselves happy to come back and relax, which is a good sign.
Breakfast is fine, though we found ourselves eating at nearby cafe Kern, or the University Mensa, for better value. They don't do dinner, but there are nice cafes nearby.
Wifi Internet is free.
We would certainly come back here if we were in Zurich.
