Reviewed May 1, 2013

I booked the hotel through their website and had to change my bookings last minute due to the change in our travel schedule. They were prompt in their response and allowed me to change my reservation with minimum hassle.

The hotel was located in a convenient and central location though the people at the train station were not that familiar with the hotel. I suggest that you find the location first via your map in order to prevent going to the wrong direction.

The room was cozy and clean and the reception was very helpful and patient in terms of providing information and recommendations to good eating places. All in all, we would stay here if we visit Zurich again!

Chosen for 2 nights within an independent tour package for its proximity to the station due to much railway action in our itineraries. Certainly it is fairly close to the main station and it is also well placed for the sights, restaurants and even an arthouse cinema nearby. Reception was pleasant and helpful. The included breakfast was good and included real espresso coffee rather than that pallid capsule stuff - it was also fun to watch the nearby funicular go back and forth while you dine.

But it must be said that the rooms really are very tiny and tight, with few frills. Our 2 rooms were also quite stuffy despite the air circulation system and they were fairly noisy too - we did not know about the claimed difference between the sides of the building.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the main street side

Dear Guest

Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor. It is vitally important to us, to receive honest feedbacks like yours.

Furthermore, we think it is very helpful for future guests to choose a hotel in the center of Zurich.

Regarding the room size it is true that some room categories are rater small since our building is more than 100 years old and we have to work with the existing infrastructure.

Nevertheless we hope to welcome you back at the occasion of your next trip to Zurich.

Yours faithfully

Took my sister to Zurich for her 70th birthday to celebrate with some relations who live there. The hotel is situated close to the Central bus/tram stop and you can get to it from the airport by tram 10 - 30 mins. You can walk to most things from here but if you are feeling lazy there are loads of buses and trams available from the Central stop that go almost everywhere.

The hotel is about 100m from the bus/tram stop and consequently some people might consider it a bit noisy at night. I had a single room looking towards the bus stop and found it OK even though I had the window open all night as I like to be cool. You get a reasonable selection of bath toiletries so that was fine. The rooms were clean and mine had a fridge so put my bottled water in there.

You can get breakfast at the hotel or go down one street and along about 300m to Migros (also McDonalds next door) where you can get a cheaper breakfast and buy foods from the attached supermarket in the basement.

All the staff were really helpful and friendly but special thanks to Larissa who sorted out all our queries. The hotel even gave my sister a little present for her birthday. As a result, my sister had a really great 3 days in Zurich.

Suggestion
Before you rush off and buy a Zurich card (remember museums are closed on Mondays) go to the Tourist Information at the station. There are a large variety of travel options which are a lot cheaper and unless you intend to go to a lot of museums, you may find it cheaper to take another option. If the weather is good, it is fun to walk around the city and you will see many of the sites along the way. We didn't buy any Zurich cards and actually found it far cheaper.

Room Tip: We had single rooms which are few and far between and are quite small but have everything you need...

A small boutique hotel in the old town which seems to have been recently refurbished; good value for money, nice rooms, and friendly staff. Good to have free wifi. Recommended if you are on budget or for a short stay; would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms away from the main road as the traffic can be noisy.

One of the best hotel I have visited in Zurich. The value for money is excellent for the city of Zurich. Free wifi and very good price for rooms. Very nice location in the center of the city. Hotel du Théatre is the hotel I choose whenever I have to go to Zurich. The staff is very friendly which is even better.

The personnel is friendly, the room is clean and well organized, the location is really convenient (at 20 metres from central from where you have access to every tram routes), the breakfast buffet menu is satisfactory and, while eating, you can enjoy staying in a sunny room with large glass windows.
The only problem I found is that the hotel is located on a main road, so that at night the sleeping time can be disturbed by cars and trams passing by.
Overall the feedback is definitely more than positive.

Dear Guest

Thank you for having taken the time to rate us on Tripadvisor. We really appreciate your kind words and we will surely share them with the team.

When you book next time a room why don’t you ask us for a room facing away the street and we will then put a note in our system.

We hope to welcome you back soon at our hotel and send you our regards to Ticino.

This is only a small hotel and has limited facilities. Breakfast is not included in the daily rate. However there is free wifi (strong enough for a good Face Time connection on my Ipad) and the room I had was comfortable and warm. The room phone also had a hot key providing direct dial access to AT&T. As other reviewers have noted, the hotel is located within 5 mins walk of the central railway station with its direct trains to/from the airport. Even closer is the Central tram stop, with the no.10 tram providing a direct link to/from the airport as well. The Poly Bahn, which is accessed just around the corner from the hotel's front entrance, provides a charming method of travelling from the city to the university, with the alternative being a fairly steep climb.
All of the staff were polite and fluent in English.
