Astor Hotel & Serviced Apartments
Ranked #12 of 53 Specialty Lodging in Zurich
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

It is a Good location, considering when you are tired after shopping, you just want to get back as soonest.

Room is big, spacious space for luggage and a waredrop to hang clothes. Like the mini kitchen with microwave, free tea bags and water cooker.
Toliet is clean, great having a hair dryer and a bathtub.

Reception (The indonesia nice lady) is friendly and helpful , spoke good English, and helped us by printing out maps on How to get to The restaurants.

Zurich is not cheap, so consider the price we paid, It was reasonable.

The only slight down side is that if you are a light sleeper, You may get woken up by the tram noise outside the window. Otherwise, hey! You will be so tired after walking around that you just don't get bothered.

Close the window, it will be fine.
But can be stuffy inside the room.
There is a fan, which is a plus point.

Overall, value for money, Good location, clean and reasonable comfy bed.

The room and bathroom isn't small. Very good location and friendly reception. Next to the tram stop 6,7, 10, 15. It is easy to get the airport and hauptbanhof from hotel. WiFi is very fast.
I think it is the best choice in the central part of Zurich - not very expensive and very comfortable.

Not the best place to stay for families. The children's room was on the opposite end of the passage and we really missed being able to eat breakfast at the hotel. I think it is better suited to business people who are going to have their meals catered. The rooms are big and the bathrooms very clean and neat. There is a lot of noise from the trams passing right in front of the hotel. Staff is only available until 20:00, so we had no-one to call when we discovered that the one mattress and duvet was soaking wet. I will not stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to sleep in the middle rooms at the back.

Clean serviced apartment near Zurich main train station. Imagine a studio apartment that a young professional would choose to live. 10 minutes of walk from train station and tourist sites. The staff was very helpful and efficient. They work between 8:00-20:00. Don't forget the room key because the building is locked after 20:00. There is a small kitchen area that has a tea/coffee maker, mini fridge, and microwave. These are useful since there is no breakfast offered at the hotel. We had a very large desk along the window that allowed two people to work side by side.

The hotel is supposed to be a non-smoking building, but the common areas are filled with cigarette smell. Fortunately, the smell was not in our room. The Internet connection was unstable and mine was dropped from time to time. Lots of noises from the heavy street traffic and through the thin walls.

Zurich is an expensive city. I consider Astor Hotel's offer is competitive.

The Astor hotel and Serviced Apartments is located within walking distance from the main train station (Zurich Bahnhof) or you can take tram only 3 stops. The supermarket "COOP" is only 1 tram stop and this COOP open until 10 pm everyday except Sunday (it's closed on Sunday). Inside the room, spacious, full equiped, free wi-fi, nespresso machine (2cups per day), fridge, utensils, microwave, working table. The only disadvantage point is if you are a light sleeper since the tram runs on the road the hotel situated all night. For me, no problem and I like it since it's so convenient to travel to all tourist attractions.

unless you've got lots of money to spent on shopping or eating out, there isn't much to do in Zurich so you'll be spending a decent amount of time in the room. The two best parts about the room were the insulated windows which did an amazing job of keeping the noise from the streets to a minimum (this is very important as the trams are very noisy and run all night long) and the metallic blinds which really did a great job of darkening the room. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were of decent quality and clean. The room had a closet, drawers, a desk, bathroom and kitchenette. It did get hot in the room and for the price I expected an air conditioner but all that was provided was a fan. The kitchenette had a fridge and a microwave which came in handy if you wanted to eat in (closest grocery store was in the train station basement, entrance through the underground on the bridge). The sink however was tiny and it was difficult to wash dishes without spreading water everywhere. The hotel had a washer/dryer available for free but it would be nice if instructions were provided as the machines are very different from those in the states. The tv had at least 10 British stations. There was no hand soap provided (just these cheap shampoo/body soap packages) so bring your own if you plan on washing your hands.

There were 4 of us and when we found out that Astor has serviced apartment, it feels like a good choice. We got an apartment with 2 rooms, equipped with a small kitchenette, dining area and 2 bathrooms.

Pros: Good location, satisfying facilities (free wifi, tv with good amount for channels for surfing if you cant sleep, fans in the rooms), spacious rooms, lots of cabinets. Good value in comparison to other hotels, since most things are expensive in Zurich.

Cons: Very noisy if you have the windows open (trams track right outside), slightly uphill walk from the main train station which can be quite tiring if you are carrying heavy backpacks :p
