We unfortunately only had one night in Zurich, but it was well spent at the Hotel Rutli. I had originally booked the Adler Hotel, but they cancelled on us with only a couple of weeks to go so it was a scramble to find something else quickly.
Luckily I found the Hotel Rutli and I am very glad we did. We arrived in Zurich by train from Lucerne and it was very easy to walk to the Rutli dragging our large suitcases. We booked a king bedded room and a twin room and both were spotlessly clean and much larger than the usual European hotel rooms.
Our rooms faced the street, and there was a little noise during the evening, but it was a Saturday night. It must have died down fairly quickly though as our sleep was not disturbed and I am a very light sleeper.
The location was excellent. As previously mentioned, an easy walk to and from the railway station, but also an easy walk to many restaurants and bars and all of the tourist sites we wished to see during our weekend in Zurich.
Wifi was included free of charge and worked well. There was a Nespresso machine which was wonderful as well as an included continental breakfast. Breakfast was fine, the usual continental fare and hard boiled eggs. The only thing I would have like was a toaster, as I haven’t got used to break for breakfast, I really prefer toast, but that is my only complaint.
We organised a guaranteed late checkout as our flight back to Australia was not until 9.00pm. We were only charged 100 Euro for the late checkout, which was excellent, as all other hotels I had contacted required us to book an extra night.
If we visit Zurich again, I would certainly stay at the Hotel Rutli again.
