Very Central with ease to get around.
CHECK-IN: Fantastic! Karen at Reception could not have been more helpful. We were welcomed as soon as we walked in. We were immediately assisted with our bags and even though we were a little early, we were taken straight to our room. Smooth, professional and super efficient.
LOCATION: Excellent! Restaurants, supermarket, fruit store and so much more all on your door step.
ROOM: We advised that we would be 2 adults and 2 small children. Our room was plenty big enough for all four of us. The staff did not mind that we asked to push all the beds together and were very happy to accommodate whatever we needed whilst there. Very clean and well-equipped.
BREAKFAST: Although a small selection, everything was very nice. The croissants were wonderful, the coffee machines allowed you to select whatever coffee in whatever combination you liked.
CHECK-OUT: Again, very efficient and very friendly.
OVERALL: Very positive and very happy with our stay here. Staff were all very pleasant. The short stroll to the lake was absolutely stunning. Would definitely recommend staying here.

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and it never disappoints. My sister and brother-in-law were with us this time and we were spending a weekend as a pre-Christmas treat. The staff are lovely and prior to our trip we asked them to book us into 2 particular restaurants as we knew it would be difficult to get tables as these restaurants are always booked up. Within 5 minutes of asking they emailed confirmations through. Extremely efficient!! The hotel rooms are large with big comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. As you can expect in Switzerland everything was spotless. The breakfast buffet has plenty of choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wellenberg which is situated in the old town and well located for visiting the sites and shopping in the Banhofstrasse. Tip: visit Sprüngli at Paradeplatz and have a cup of their wonderful hot chocolate and buy some of their lovely chocolates. You won't be disappointed!

Absolutely perfect location! Situated in a square, with many restaurants, small supermarket and various shops. It is in the old town so it is very picturesque. It is a three minute walk to the lake for some beautiful views and a ten minute stroll to the main train station and the tour trolley car. 10-15 mins to get to the main shopping street with all of the beautiful designer stores and a department store. The room was lovely, the beds extremely comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family, 2 adults, 2 kids. The staff were wonderful and the breakfast very good. The only thing missing for us was air conditioning but we had a fan and slept with the windows open which gave us a lovely breeze. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Zurich.

Room Tip: We were in room 412 which was on the fourth floor and the on the back side of the building which was very quiet and views of some lovely houses.

The Wellenberg is a very nice, intimate European hotel in a perfect
Location in Zurich. It is just off the river right in old town close to
Everything you want to see. The river is a few hundred feet away
And the Zurich Sea is close as well. They are both beautiful to
Sit at while having lunch or to people watch. The hotel has a
Fantastic breakfast room and the food is great. You can't miss
Staying here. Tip: there is a wonderful small park on the Bahnhofstrasse
To sit, enjoy a snack and watch the Zurich way of life.

We spent a week at Hotel Wellenberg and had a lovely time there. The staff were fantastic - very friendly and very helpful. They made our stay not only at the hotel but in Zurich an easy and memorable one. The room we had was one of the last to be renovated but it was still clean, tidy and perfect for what we were after. My family stayed in other rooms and they were all really nice, one was quite small though. The breakfast was great and more than enough variety for us each morning. The location was perfect and although this was a great benefit, it was also a negative as it's a very noisy area. Our room didn't have AC (but did have a fan) so we had to have the windows open and it was very noisy at night as it's above many restaurants.
