Accommodation in Zurich is very expensive! We had booked into the Guest House but were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the hotel. Rooms are small but this wasn't an issue for us as we were out and about all day anyway. Bathroom was small and compact but very clean and modern. WiFi is available free of charge and staff were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel (and the guesthouse) are an easy walk from the train station and are located in amongst the old town and many restaurants. Bahnhofstrasse is also an easy walk.
On the downside, the pillows were awful and there were no alternatives available. Also, Saturday night was very noisy with (drunk?) men hanging around outside various bars in the street below.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our owner-managed hotel is ideally located in the middle of Zurich's Old Town - at just 5 minutes walking distance from the Central Railway Station.Virtually everything of interest is within short walking distance. Not just only Zurich's well-known landmarks but also the business quarters with the banks and shops, the high-end shopping district «Bahnhofstrasse», the university quarters, amongst them the ETH «Federal Institute of Technology», the car-free lake- and riverside promenades and many Cafés, bars and restaurants.The Hotel Alexander, renovated in February 2012, has more than 41 lavishly appointed and well tended non smoking rooms. Energy saving LED bulbs, a much enhanced panoramic view of the historic center thanks to its new windows, comfy beds and bright modern bathrooms turn your stay into a very enjoyable event. ... more less
