“Great value and location for Zurich. Fresh and clean. Recommend.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Zurich being an expensive city to stay in (looking at accommodation prices in the metropolitan area) this hotel was a refreshing change. As the hotel says, it’s no frills basics but we were pleasantly surprised at our room. We arrived at the Etap very late at night and just missed the last train from the airport to the train station.

The Hotel is very conveniently located near one of the main train stations which has a direct service from zurich airport. If all went to plan we could have caught the train from the airport train station and then disembarked at the train station near etap (only 5 -10 minutes by train) and then walk 5 minutes to the hotel. The whole area is safe. The etap hotel is located in a relatively new area of zurich, in the technoaprk precinct. Around the hotel there are very modern buildings and also the hotel ibis and novotel are within the same complex as the etap hotel.

The rooms are very nice, fresh modern and green and white in colour. It’s quite simple but has all the amenities one would want when travelling. Only drawback is the awkwardness of having the toilet in a small room which is mounted to the wall and is quite high. For people that are shorter you may need to have a ini ladder to go to the loo (only joking- but it is quite high). Also the toilet door is not to the floor and other colleagues who may be in your room can hear what’s going on. Feels bit awkward to have the toilet room not fully separated from the sleeping quarters. But other than that the room is very good. We booked a twin room and we managed to get this for around 100 Swiss franc a night.

The breakfast a bit disappointing. You pay an extra 12 swiss francs for a limited selection each . We soon found out that prices in Switzerland are quite high and had to bare the price of the breakfast we were offered. It was good but nothing special. Putting this into context, you are staying in a budget hotel, so expectations are met in this sense.

Overall our stay was pleasant and we were happy with our room. The main advantage of choosing the etap hotel is the location and its surroundings which is just across the road from all the major transport (such as trams and train). In all If I were to travel to zurich again, I would definitely select the etap hotel for my stay as it offers good value, service and comfort for a country where finding value can be hard to come by

A nice hotel for a reasonable price and close to downtown. The tram stop is directly outside of the hotel and very efficient! The room was small but again for the price you can't go wrong unless you have a lot of luggage. The concierge was extremely helpful and you can pay a bit more for breakfast if you'd like.

for an Etap, this is a good one. Friendly staff. An EXCELLENT location, easily reachable from the main train station via the new Tram 4 line, stop Technopark (this line is NOT on all the maps yet!). Just about makes Zürich affordable. I always find that on my own, it is very good value. As always with ETAP, the rooom with 2 or 3 in them can get VERY cosy and intiment but since you pay by the room, even more value is there if you want to cram in. I use it constantly for working in the Technopark - just across the street. My only complaint are the beds - a bit hard for my taste. If you drive, be warned: ALL parking in Zürich is fairly expensive so calculate a bit more funds just for this (regardless of hotel).

We arrived about 2 am on August 31st after spending hours trying to find a room in Germany. We were exhasted so I went in to ask about a room. The night clerk acted as if he was kind of insulted that we wanted a room. He acted like there were no rooms available then finally said he would give me a room. Finally I asked how much for a room. His responce: "Every room in Zurick is full and you have the nerve to ask me how much for room ?" What an a$s. Pretty sure we were overcharged at about 120 CHF plus parking. The next morning 3 different maids walked in on me trying to pressure me to get out of the room.
