The hotel is in a great location, minutes from the train station and about ten minutes walk from the lake. Room are quite small but are comfortable with good showers. Why do most Swiss hotels have two single beds pushed together to act as a double, though? The room we had was facing the pedestrianised street at the back - if you are a light sleeper this can be noisy, especially as there are a lot of pubs nearby. The small buffet breakfast was good and is served until 10am.

For my purposes, Hotel Limmatblick was a great choice - funky, fun, centrally located (walking distance to the train station but still in a very nice section of town), and very clean. At a little over 150 Euro a night, a good value for the money.

However, there is no lobby (you walk straight in to a crowded, smoking-permitted bar/ restaurant which also contains the elevators to the guest rooms) and the check-in desk literally doubles as a bar (room keys and hard liquor are right next to each other!). While my friend and I found it rather funny and cool, I can imagine a family or a guest looking for a relaxing small hotel would not be pleased with such a set-up.

It is worth noting, that despite the chaotic layout described above, the guest room was actually rather quiet and furnishings quite new and stylish (W Hotel-esque: trendy earth colors with dim lighting). Bathroom was small but adequate and very clean. The breakfast, which was included in the room rate, was decent (standard self-serve fruit and pastries set out on the bar aka reception desk :)

If you are looking for a relaxing hotel in Zurich with lots of customer service and hotel ammenities, Hotel Limmatblick is not the best choice for your purposes. If you are a more independent traveler looking for a fun, convenient, clean hotel at a very fair price, I would certainly recommend Hotel Limmatblick

On the first floor they have a fun and modern cafe where they serve a great Swiss breakfast in the morning. You find a lot of locals besides the hotel guests in the cafe which is always a good sign in Switzerland since the Swiss are very particular about there coffee and food :-). The bar also functions as the reception, so do not be surprised when you enter the place and it does not look like a boring hotel entrance. The rooms are nice, clean and a fun design. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Zurich and within foot distance to the main train station.

A great location, close to the train station and right on the Limmatquai.
We were slightly uncomfortable checking in since the reception area is in the bar/restaurant on the first floor, but the staff was very welcoming and very helpful..
The room was average size and very clean. We were on the 2nd floor on the alley and it was somewhat noisy, not from the bar but from people on the streets. I would definitely stay here again but would request a room on a higher floor.

The initial feeling as we headed into Zurich and were being lead to the hotel by the GPS system in the car, was one of excitement due to its proximity to the Limmat River.
Unfortunately the elation quickly vaporized as we determined that the hotel appeared to be a cafe. The young host's welcome at the bar was about as welcoming as the hotel lobby, in other words, non-existent. One gets the feeling pretty quickly that this is a cafe first and a distant second as a hotel.
There was a noticeable odor of cooked food lingering throughout the hallways.

The rooms were small but acceptable. The hotel's niche is that its decor is dedicated to the Dadaist movement. I, admittedly, wasn't overly familiar with DaDa but would readily accept any tasteful effort.

Naturally I wasn't expecting the Ritz as the hotel room rates are moderately priced. We had two rooms, one facing the river at the front of the building and the other at the back of the building, overlooking a pedestrian street. Both rooms had excessive noise levels - the bustling street at the front with trams, cars, motorcycles and trucks driving by, and the noise of hundreds of people walking under the window at the rear.

The aforementioned small rooms were comfortable, appeared clean and acceptable. The real problem is that this establishment isn't set up to accomodate hotel guests. Forget room service or calling a concierge - there isn't any. Getting to your room at night when the cafe is busy is uncomfortable as you have to walk through the cafe. Certainly not for kids.

It is conveniently located to lots and lots of shopping, dining and drinking establishements.

The best word for anybody planning to stay at this hotel is, don't expect much and maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised.
