“Wonderful hotel & staff in central location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2008

This hotel is literally across the road from the Zurich HB and considering the proximity to the train station is extremely quiet. The windows are sound proofed, there is free wireless internet in all rooms, a non smoking floor and safes in the rooms.

The breakfast room is on the first floor and offers a wonderful fresh and healthy breakfast & all staff are courteous, helpful and sympathetic when your luggage goes missing!! It is also a 10 min walk to Bahnhofstrasse and the museum is right next door.

All in all a great experience and would thoroughly recommend this to people travelling by train.

Excellent location- bus station ( for tours) across the road, tramstop outside and the central train station less than a minute away! makes travelling a breeze and getting back to your hotel after a long day a doddle!
Staff were friendly and courteous. The room was spacious...the bathroom has two sinks ( for me and hubby!) and the room was cleaned to a high standard every day.They served breakfast but didn't try it ( looked nice )as there are lots of food kiosks/shops around and in the station for breakfast/lunch or dinner!
They have a coffee machine foe beverages in the lobby but no other facilities for eating/drinking outside of breakfast in the hotel itself.
In november there was building being done next door ( a new starbucks). This was not a problem as we were up anyway and by the time we got back ( approx 6 pm), the work has stopped so it never really distubed us!
A lovely and convenient hotel to use as a base to explore zurich and would stay there again.

  • Liked — excellent location
  • Disliked — no extra frills ( like swimmimg pool/restaurant) but not a problem

This hotel is across the street from the railway station and next to the tram stop to downtown and lake.

A little over priced--but location was excellent. We did not do the breakfast for 16 Swiss francs. Too convenient to a number of coffee and roll places.

Great Indian food place about 3 blocks on Klingenstrasse--Restaurant Vulcan. We ate their twice.

Rooms could use some updating, but are clean and comfortable. I ended up at this hotel when I couldn't find another room in Zurich for less than $250 francs a night...with an early train, this was also quite convenient. Good value, but not a place you'd want to stay if you plan to spend the day in your room.

The front desk staff was extremely courteous and helpful.

This is an older business-class hotel (i.e. with WiFi access but light on amenities like room service and laundry service) whose main qualities are its proximity to the main train station, very clean rooms, and very good Italian restaurant located in the hotel. But its proximity to the train station also means it is noisy and bright: bring your ear plugs and sleeping mask.

My husband and I stayed at Wallhalla Hotel in January 2005 for three nights and were not able to sleep because of the street noise, eventough our room was not facing the busy street. The rooms were clean.
We would not stay there again because of the street noise.

Excellent location and easily found, clean rooms, very helpful staff. Very handy as a base for day tours. We travelled with two little ones and there was plenty of space in the room. Snack machines available and restaurant downstairs. Great value for money, especially in Zurich.
