I stayed at the Hotel Glaenischhof whilst in Zurich for a couple of nights. The hotel itself is clean, dry and warm and provides a good base for spending time within the city.
Whilst the rooms were a little dated, they were well equipped with TV, mini bar, A/C etc which did make for a comfortable stay. I did eat in the hotel restaurant, the food was of good quality, the wine was rather delicious, but I would say a little bit more diverse choice would have made me eat there again.
If you want a room tip, when you get to the hotel, the block it's on is quite small. There are a number of building works currently happening, and whilst it did not affect me in the night, if you did want a lay in, you might struggle to do so. Also, look out on the walls for buttons... I was slightly confused why the curtains did not fit the window width, then realised they had external shutters for that "baton down the hatches" feeling.
The hotel is located only a short walk from the old town in Zurich, and very close to the lake (it's at the end of the street). Good location for exploring, but is on the other side of the city to the train station (around a £15 taxi ride)
