I stayed at the Krone Limmatquai for one night in January 2005. I chose it because it was the cheapest room I could find, and it is in downtown Zurich. The location was great, close to everything you'll need. If you are fussy at all, like me, I would suggest paying more money and being in a decent hotel. The room was tiny and kind of smelled funny. Also, there was only down pillows and blankets, which I am allergic to, when I told the front desk, they seemed to have no clue what I was talking about. I speak passable German and explained myself that way only to recive a blank stare. They told me to come back later and tell them. I did when I got back that evening only to hear that housekeeping already left and I could not be helped.
That and public bathrooms encouraged me to check in to a more expensive hotel a few blocks away. I had a restful night there.
