“a good place to stay in Zurich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

I've been there for a work trip and it was pretty good.
The park is just in the basement, all staff is kind and service and breakfast were pretty good.

Room are big enought and very confortable, with an adeguate desk that could be used for work.
Also Bathroom is big enought but I don't personally like the Bathroom/Sower combo.
Price are high (but it's a standard in Switzerland).

The hallway smelt a little when I arrived and the room not much better. A strange smell, a bit stuffy really. The rooms are very clean and well finished. A nice bathroom with an excellent shower (no bath) and good toiletries selections. The bed was relatively comfy but the pillows were not so good. It has a conference feel to it. I arrived fairly late on a Friday night and there were no restaurants open anywhere nearby. I walked for quite a while to a local pizza takeaway house for some bad food. Had to walk past some seedy looking bars with ladies of the night outside. It wasn't in a great area and there was nowhere to really go out. It is ok if you're just staying for one night on a stop over but no extended stays would be advisable. Staff were ok.

Dear Guest
Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. We are sorry to hear that you experienced some points which did not meet your expectations. We have internally discussed your mentioned topics and we will implement the necessary steps, so that future guest do not share the same experiences as you.
For future reference, we can recommend the up and coming Zurich West area of town, which lies 2 tram stops away. In this area there are a ample number of pubs, clubs, restaurants and cinemas. After enjoying the nightlife in the surrounding areas, you can relax in your Crowne Plaza bed, with extra pillows we provide on a 24hr basis. (housekeeping must be informed via phone or front desk).
We very much appreciate your trust and hope to welcome you back to the Crowne Plaza Zurich very soon. Best regards, Ai Na Meng Director of Sales

Comfortable hotel. Recommend negotiating breakfast into the rate since it's expensive if you don't. Failing that, there are some cheap and cheerful cafes just up the road (heading towards the Letzigrund). You also have to pay for Wifi which is shocking these days I know. The hotel is very clean, good restaurant and bar (expensive too) and it has a limited gym. It's on the main road into Zurich City Centre so access to the tram is convenient. English speaking TV channels very limited (there's only so much BBC World than one can stand each night) but the best feature is the convenience to the Letzigrund Stadium.

Room Tip: Negotiate breakfast and wifi if you can. Rooms on the back much quieter since Trams on the front can...

Well located -- 15 min by tram from the train station/old city, neat clean hotel. Tiny room and tinier bathroom but very well priced (paid 100 euros a night). Staff is helpful -- let me check in early, and helped with zurich guide etc. The free internet is fast enough if you are not streaming video.

Great restaurant and bar in the hotel. Breakfast buffet is also of good quality, and I saved money on this when I booked through 'Booking.com'. Rooms were nice and clean. My only knock on this place is that the A/C unit in the rooms only cooled to 24C, but with added fans that the hotel maintenance provided, it was tolerable -- note, this was during a very hot weekend in Zurich, so expectations for a really comfortable environment was not completely expected. Another knock, the TV needs to be upgraded, as the screen resolution was small and not clear. Due to the very hot weather, my family opted to stay in the hotel in the evenings, so a quality TV would have been appreciated. However, overall, a quality hotel with good amenities.

Room Tip: Look for breakfast buffet discounts when purchased through hotel booking online. Also, just down the...

Kindly let us mention that the american style air condition is not allowed in Zurich due to environmental law in switzerland.

This hotel was a bad experience for my wife and myself. We have stayed in numerous Crowne Plaza hotels worldwide, and this is the worst we have encountered. The main issue was that the room was about as big as a wardrobe, except it was so small that it did not have one. Reception informed me that it was really a business man' s hotel.......well I am sorry for any business man staying here.
I am a Platinum Priority member and the only priority service I got was a free orange juice on arrival.
The hotel described our room as " spacious ". This is total misrepresentation and should be withdrawn immediately from the hotel specification.
I was not asked at checkout whether we had enjoyed our stay......but if we had been I would certainly have informed them that we would never return.
This hotel is simply not up to standard and I would advise anyone to think again about staying here if they want a room which is bigger than a shoe box.
