“Great central hotel - Super friendly staff”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I stayed here for an Ironman competition so I needed a centrally located hotel and cost efficient too. Whilst most hotels seem to inflate prices with demand, the Roessli seemed to remain very reasonable.

The staff sent me a personal email before arriving (even though I booked via an agent) to let me know where to park and that if I was in the Ironman that weekend they would be providing an early breakfast. It was a great personal touch, all before arriving.

It seemed like it was family run - it probably wasn't but just had that feel where all the staff were pulling together to make sure my stay was perfect - I will definitely go back to this hotel next year, it's really nice to know what you are going to get - so I hope this information is helpful to anyone with this hotel on their short-list.

Furthermore, I only live in Geneva, so if ever I go up to Zurich for a weekend I know exactly where to go.

Dean, Geneva, Switzerland

Room Tip: small hotel, so all rooms about the same I think.

Great location, great value. The breakfast was so delicious and the ladies there so sweet. I'm pretty sure I over-ate every morning just so I could have a little bit of everything. One con is the noise level, depending where your room is. I had one of the rooms right above the little bar downstairs and it was quite noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings but most other days it was fine. A huge plus for me is the water pressure they had in the showers - really wonderful, especially after a long day's travel. Would recommend this hotel to those looking for a centralized, economical option.

First of all you have to remember that all hotels in Switzerland are expensive. Once you get over that hurdle, you will realize that the Hotel Roessli is actually a very economical choice. I call it 'a hidden gem' because it is located in a very unassuming lane by the same name, and even then, you could easily walk by the front door and miss it, but don't be fooled. While it is by no means a 5 star hotel, it is is very conveniently located, the rooms are nice, and the staff are very helpful. Everything I wanted when spending 2-3 nights in Zurich. Virtually in the shadow of the Gross Munster church, it is only a short walk to literally hundreds of restaurants and one of the trendy shopping districts. It is also a short, although rather steep walk from the main Zurich art museum (the Kunsthaus Zurich)

The hotel was great value for money, it has a great location just in the middle between the lake and old town, perfect for walking every place. I was there for 4 days and enjoyed a lot. Kind staff and always clean rooms.

Randomly, through some friends I found this very nice place in the central heart of Zurich. The location was absolutely perfect for city exploring. The rooms are big enough, very clean and the beds are comfortable. Just a suggestion: apple device docking station would be even more convenient.
Breakfast was very nice, containing well chosen Swiss products served by very friendly staff.
As well the reception staff was very helpful and friendly.
Thank you for the nice stay.

Room Tip: High floor rooms in the summer might be a little bit warm

First we had a superior room on the back side away from the hotel bar. There is no AC eh oh for July was hot at night meaning windows were open and you get some late night foot traffic by the rooms. Which is why ear plus are provided. But after all that the room was amazingly clean, staff was friendly enough. Location was perfect to sight see, shop, catch trains to different parts of Zurich. Overall was a great place to stay at a reasonable price. Highly recommend it.

Thank you very much for your nice comment.
We know about the air-con and are very concerned about it. Since the building is under heritage protection we are not allowed to install air-condition. But we offer a wide range of vans.

Best regards and hope to see you soon back in our hotel.
