Great location. In the heart of the city, next to restaurants, coffeeshops, bars & attractions. You can easily reach everything on foot. I would consider it quite expensive but generally hotels in Zurich are very expensive. The room was very small & there was no aircondition. There was only a small fan. It was noisy in the night during the...

Our room was comfortable and as pictured. We enjoyed dessert in the hotel's wine cave. The breakfast was fresh and good. We liked being near the river so that we could stroll the town since we were only there for one evening.

Situated in the beautiful old town this 14th century hotel is perfectly positioned to be close to everything. ( shops, restaurants & cafes, gym, lake, railway station, etc) The staff were fantastic. Our room and bathroom were small but fine. We had windows opening up over the little square and tea & coffee making facilities in our room. Breakfast was...

Nice hotel on a good location, 10 mins from the main station.. The staff is nice and helpful.. The rooms are quite basic, not too much modern, as this is one of the oldest hotels of zurich.. Well maintained.. nearby nice turkish resturant to eat..near to lake zurich, may be 10 mins walk..

We stayed at this hotel for one night after taking the train from Geneva to Zurich. We really only needed a bed to sleep so we pick this hotel because of its amazing location. The hotel itself is located near all the shopping and stores in old town, and is a quick walk from the train station. It also was...

Dear Jacob T Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to review your stay. We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed our breakfast with the fresh, local products.

Our room was not too big but had everything we needed. As for the staff, they were more than helpful and always kind and willing offer their services even in the middle of the night. Although the hotel is on a busy sweet little square in the centre of the old town, it was quiet and we slept like babies....

We found the Hirschen difficult to locate!! The frontage is glaringly obvious but the actual entrance is well hidden. It is the little door on the left of the restaurant, which we, and a few others walked into with suitcases thinking it was the entrance. The hotel is brilliantly situated for the Old Town and has good tram access but...
