The room I stayed in at the Rossli was cute with plenty of space for a single traveller. It had wooden floors, two windows which could open, modern paintings and Kiehl toiletries. The lighting is good for reading, there's a small armchair and a fridge (mini bar). I'd asked for a quiet room and mine was on the 5th floor. The bar was directly below and I stayed on a Friday and Saturday night but was not bothered by noise. Breakfast was good and included scrambled eggs and bacon, unusual for a European hotel. The Rossli is close to the Limmat lake and to ancient restaurants and boutique-style shops. It can be reached easily by tram from the airport (10 to the station, then 4) or from the train station (4).

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in April. The hotel is on a pedestrian only street so we had to lug our belongings about half a block on a cobbled street to get to the hotel. Because we had reserved a large room we were placed across the street from the hotel, in their annex. The room was large but the furnishings were sparse and worn. Though the hotel and annex entries are on a small street our room actually faced a much larger street. With the window open at night the room was quit noisy until late and again early in the morning, with delivery trucks and street sweepeers.
The saving grace was that all employees were extremely kind and helpful, and the rate was reasonable. Also, the hotel is well located, close to almost everything on both sides of the old town.

Dear 11jimtravel

Thank you for your comment. The satisfaction of our customers is very important for this reason we are grateful for any feedback.
We are in the lucky position that the hotel is located in the old town of Zurich which is the most central place of Zurich, but it is also true the old town of Zurich is a pedestrian area. It would have been allowed to drive up the alley to the hotel (as close as possible) to assist you with the luggage.
We know that some of the rooms need a new look therefore we are renovating right now. By mid-September all our rooms and also the reception will be brand new with modern furniture and state-of-the-art equipment.
We hope you will return to Zurich to see our new “old” hotel.

Best regards from Zurich, your Hotel Rössli-Team

This is the third time in some years


that we have been fortunate to stay at the Roesli hotel . So I can say that the experience we have had this time is as expected and hoped for This is a small compact almost bijou hotel, very centrally situated for the rain stations , trams and buses and the old town of Zurich. The rooms do vary as they would, this time no 601 on the top floor of the main building, with as has been said an easily accessible roof terrace. Impeccably clean and well equipped , comfortable beds, fine white linen . The Breakfasts were as good as you could desire, full range and satisfying quality , the minimum staff , as helpful as any one would hope for All together a worth while experience, if you need to be in the centre of the Town for an event such as the Sechseleuton Cheap no, but thoroughly recommended.

Hotel Rössli is on a cute little side street within walking distance of all of the old town sights. The staff were very nice and helpful (and even let us check in a bit early after a very long flight) and the room was impeccably clean. The beds were comfortable, and there was pretty decent closet space. The bathroom had a GREAT bathtub, and the bath products were Kiehls, which was definitely a bonus! The complimentary breakfast was great too.

If you leave the windows open at night, there's a bit of noise from the restaurant/bar downstairs if people are sitting outside, but it's not too bad.

After reading about the hotel i Wallpapers Zürich guide we booked a room for the weekend and really liked it. It felt like staying in the guest room of a nice relative with the personally decorated room and the large mosaic bathroom (with Kiehls products). We enjoyed good breakfasts and would have loved to go to the restaurant - next time! The hotel had a nice bar where we ended our Zürcher evenings. The only reason I don't give the hotel full score is that the weekend nights were a bit noisy.
