“only for a business traveler though”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

The reason why we choose this hotel for an overnight stay in Zurich was the location, close to the train station since we had to catch a train the next morning at 7 AM.
Rooms are spacious and very well equipped, even though the deco is a bit retro.
Very nice bathroom, one of the best in hotels of this category I ever saw.
Wonderful breakfast in the swiss tradition.
However, compared to other similar hotels in Zurich with more or less similar prices, the City Hotel lacks in character and is a bit aseptic. Therefore, I would certainly suggest it for business people that need good facilities (including good internet connection) and a central location close to the Bahnhofstrasse, but surely not to a tourist that comes to visit Zurich: the Altstadt (old town) offers more appealing opportunities in a better position to discover the little alleys impregnated of history along the two sides of the Limmat river.

Does what it says. Free wifi, great bathroom, comfy bed, plenty TV channels, excellent breakfast, perfect location, and the cheapest around. AND, the reception staff were friendly. Not pretentious, and great value .

We stayed one night in the City Hotel in September 2011.

I had booked a Business room in advance, and we were allocated room 108, which had a beautiful ‘wet room’ bathroom (albeit with an odd sliding door). It was very clean and looked recently renovated.

The air conditioning in the room worked perfectly, and made the room wonderfully cold.

The Bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of space for an overnight stay.

We had a drink in the bar before going out for dinner, and a coffee on return, both of which were excellent.

The breakfast was good, it is a continental style and is served in the restaurant.

We had pre-booked a space in the car park opposite, having stayed here before we were aware that it is slightly awkward to get into, but it is definitely worth pre-booking as the spaces fill up very quickly.

The location is spot on – you are right in the heart of the city.

They offers internet connection with LAN cable and from TV. Both are with poor connection! Delicious breakfast, one of best croissants I ever had and city center is within walking distance. Near to Zurich main station.

The front desk staff does not even acknowledge your presence when you enter the hotel. They are very unfriendly (even though I am a fluent German speaker). My tiny room faced a noisy street. There is no air conditioning and if you leave the window open to let cool air in from outside, the traffic noise will drive you crazy. If you close the window, it is too hot to sleep. At breakfast this morning, one of the staff was smoking in the restaurant, which was also annoying. The other staff member grunted "Kaffee oder Tee" at me but seemed to pay no attention to the other guests. Truly a terrible hotel!

The staff were really helpful, the rooms were clean and well presented as per a typical business hotel. Free internet in first floor salon, terraced area on fourth floor, decent breakfast too.
