This is a sleek, modern hotel in the middle of a quaint and funky old town neighborhood. It was minutes from the train station, an easy walk to the main attractions of the city, and conveniently located near main streetcar lines. There were great restaurants at all price levels right around the corner, literally. The room included free wifi and breakfast, which was more than adequate. The only drawback is that there is a fair amount of street noise. There are several bars on the same street, and on the Saturday night before Easter, no less, we were woken at about 4 in the morning by a rowdy drunk shouting and cursing in German at the top of his lungs for what seemed like a really long time. Maybe it was just bad luck, because on Friday evening there had been no noise to speak of at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor.

We spent 4 days in Zurich on holiday and the Sorell Hotel Rutli was great. We spent a little extra and upgraded to a family room which was large and it's great because you have a couch and table to relax on instead of lying on the bed. The rooms are clean, large and modern. The bathroom is great, which is essentially a glass partition within the room. No problems for me but they aren't exactly soundproof, so if you are travelling with a friend, there won't be much mystery left between you! Breakfast was included in our price, it's a modest breakfast of deli meats, cheeses, breads, fruits and cereals, but it was fine for our needs.

The beauty of the hotel is its only a 5 minute walk to the main Zurich rail station and right amongst the entertainment area, with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from.

I'd definitely recommend this hotel to friends. I'd also recommend first time visitors to make sure you take the train to Lucerne, it's just a beautiful as Zurich, however the shopping is a little more reasonably priced and it's close to the Alps.

While I always recommend the Sorell Zurichberg when staying in Zurich, the Rutli is a good alternative. Located a 5 minute walk from the train station in the heart of the city, the location can't be beat.

Clean rooms, friendly staff and the usual Sorell aesthetic make the Rutli a pleasant stay. Breakfast, European standard, better than usual coffee though.

Downside: expensive Internet access from Swisscom.

NOTE: The Zurichberg is nicer, but up the hillside and away from the city center. If you are leaving early for a train or flight, the Rutli is the way to go.

I stayed one night at the Sorell Rutli and I was very pleased with the quality of the hotel. Excellent value/quality.

All the rooms are fully remodeled with a great design. Nice atmosphere in the room, quiet location and very clean. Lots of international channels on TV.
The staff is friendly and always helping you with a smile. Great location, just 3 minutes walk from the main train station Zurich HB.
Excellent breakfast with lots of choices... Just perfect to start a good day! The staff at the breakfast is very friendly with a fast and excellent service.
I will recommend this hotel to everyone! I tried several 3 stars hotels in this area and this one is by far the best.
