Within a short walk of the best of Zurich. Good sized room, newly& tastefully refurbished. Well appointed though a little hot (& couldn't work out how to lower the room temp!). Staff friendly & rectified a booking error on my part quickly & without fuss.

The hotel is centrally located, the room was not spacious but comfortable, the breakfast was tasty, the service was prompt and the staff was lovely and helpful. During morning hours you can prepare coffee in the lobby.
If will be visiting Zurich in the future, will choose this hotel again.

I always stay at the Hotel Alexander in Zurich and each time it gets better and better!

Firstly its location is superb near the railway station and in the old town where the eateries are just fabulous. One can spend hours exploring the old town with its winding cobbled streets and lovely restaurants. A short walk brings you to the riverside and one can have a beautiful walk alongside it. Also a short distance away is Bahnofstrasse where one can happily window shop or actually shop depending on one's inclination and of course finances!

The best part of the Hotel is the fantastic service one gets. The staff are so helpful and always smiling. Nothing is impossible for them! The breakfast is great and the rooms are spotless and really comfortable. There is free wi fi access and also a computer at the reception where one can comfortably surf the web and make one's travel booking, Web check in etc. While doing all this one can help oneself to apples and super croissants and coffee kept at the reception.

I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Corner suites are the best though I had a lovely room tis time with greenery outside

The hotel is very centrally located right in the old town. They upgraded me for no extra charge. The rooms were modern and very clean. The AC was especially welcome! And the service was excellent. Definitely,would stay there again and recommend to others.

there is nothing bad to say about. Its small hotel, not expensive(accordingly to zurich) and costs it's money.Good location, in old town and not far from all city's advantages.
Close to plenty rest. Good for weekend break.
Room are not very big, but fresh and cosy.

Dear Mrs Tatyana G

Thank you very much for having had the privilege to be your host.

Whatever looks annoying to us must have pretty much the same effect on our customers. Good housekeeping is thus of paramount importance.

Will you tell your friends and colleagues about your pleasant memories of our place? We would appreciate that very much.
We look forward to seeing soon again with us.

Best regards
