Hotel Kronenhof
Ranked #129 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Reviewed April 2, 2009

There are three aspects to Hotel Kronenhof that I would warn about to potential guests. FIrst and foremost, although advertised as a non-smoking hotel, the heavy smoke from the pub wafts into every room and is extremely irritable. I had to keep the window open at night (in the winter) and still was miserable. Second, the hotel is irritating as it nickles and dimes one for everything. They even place a coffee maker in the room, and expect to charge you 2 Swiss francs for every cup. The 'continental breakfast' consists of coffee and a crossiant for 17 Swiss francs--that is about $15.00. Third, the hotel seems like it's close in to Zurich, but its so far out in the country you just smell cow poop. Oh please don't waste your money on this place!

Stayed in rooms 32/33. Rooms were clean/ simple. Large by European standards. There was a tv, free in room safe , mini bar, phone ,and fairly big shower. No trace of cigarette smoke. No air conditioning. We stayed during record heat wave, they gave us fans and we opened windows.It has a very fast elevator. Hotel is in a quiet suburb of Affoltern. I was worried about distance to downtown Zurich and airport. No worries anymore. It is between Zurich and the airport. Lots of buses to Zurich. Walk 4 mins to train stop , take the S6, you are in downtown 12 minutes later. You can also get to the airport in about 30 minutes via the S6 , transfer to the S2 at Oelikon.It think last train from Zurich is at midnite. Buses seemed to run later.
Thye have a pub w patio and a restuarant. Looked at menu, seemed expensive. Breakfast was 8 Euros. did not see what it looked like. There were other places within walking distance . Pizza joint and pub across the street.McDonalds down the road.There was also a grocey store that sold a lot of non food items, reminded me of a Target store in the US. It had a cafeteria. Food food was so so,
Staff at hotel was friendly and helpful.
Train fare was 3.90 each way, less for kids. Could add up if you stay for awhile and go back /forth to Zurich.Get a Zurich Card , especially for the last couple of days. You can use it on the s6 and s2 trains, buses ,and trolleys . You get various discounts, free drinks at selected hotels , free admission to observation deck at airport and some museums, plus a free lake cruise and ride to top of a mountain overlooking city.
This was a quite a respite from the hectic pace in Zurich.

We (2 senior adults) stayed at the Hotel Kronenhof for 4 nights in early June, 2006.
1. very helpful, friendly staff
2. quiet throughout the night (with the windows closed)
3. hotel is close to the main highway #2 and the airport
4. very handy for buses to downtown Zurich (instead of driving)
Cons - where to start??
1. very little free parking
2. despite being on a non-smoking floor, the hall stunk of smoke, which got into the room
3. the hotel is on a very busy street - opening the windows meant lots of noise
4. one bed was so creaky, I ended up taking it off the supports and sleeping on the floor
5. no exhaust fan in the bathroom (hello sauna!!)
6. compared to other hotels on our 4-week trip, the breakfast was the pits! Anything
besides cheese or the usual was extra (1 boiled egg- CHF3, a plate of cold cuits - CHF5)
7. the room was very small
This is definitely a hotel for the budget-minded (the double room was CHF138 per night, + breakfast and free parking, if available. It was also handy for freeway, airport or downtown travel. It may suffice for some, but we would not go back!
