Novotel City-West is located next to Hardbrucke train station so only 1 stop from the main station. The area is a mix of office building as well as trendy bars & restaurants.
It is very convenient if you cannot find an hotel in Zurich city center.
It is in a quiet place (rooms are quiet as well ... and no noise of air-con going on all night long).
Standard is like any good / recent Novotel ... so good! Rooms are large like any other Novotel.
I did not try the breakfast ... because paying CHF 28 for breakfast is a bit of steal, alternatives are take it from the IBIS next door (CHF 15) or grab something from the Coop next door that has very extensive opening hours (until 11PM at night!!!).
It has also also the spa facilities that you would not usually find in Zurich city center.More
