I have been in other Fleming's Hotels in Europe and I must say that this one is standing out. Unfortunately, it does so in a negative way. The room I got to stay in for two nights was tiny, the size you would usually expect in Paris, but not in Zurich. Also, the room was a baking hot 34 degrees ! There was a small air conditioning unit in the cupboard under the TV which, besides terrible noise, had virtually no effect. First, I thought this was a technical fault, but then discovered that my colleagues had the exact same problem. The hotel staff could not help, not surprisingly, given that the only people present (during the whole stay) were two german stagiaires who even had to have someone from Germany call me back to listen to my complaint. The hotel itself is located quite centrally in the business district, while still in walking distance to Bahnhofstrasse, the main shopping area downtown Zurich. And by walking distance, I literally mean walking. There is no car park at the hotel and if you stop in front of the entrance even just to unload your luggage, you risk to be fined CHF 120 if you get caught.
The rooms are equipped like every other Fleming's hotel, although just half the size, which gives a very crammed feeling. Also, the walls of at least my room (No 11) could do with a fresh layer of paint, as the floor could also do with a proper carpet cleaning.
Last but not least, the matress of the bed felt like it was wrapped in plastic (under the sheets), which did not really help, given the room temperature.
I will probably stay in other Cities' Fleming's Hotels again, while definitely avoiding the one in Zurich.
