This hotel is a good location which is located about 5 minutes on foot from Zurich Main Station. There are few shops around and good public safety. The shops are concentrated near the station. The scenery is also the best. The staff's service is also good.

We had a 20 hour layover in Zurich so decided to explore the city. We booked a room at The Continental, and ended up spending most of our time in the hotel! The room was bigger than expected and very well maintained. It is only a couple of minutes walk from the railway station, and about fifteen minutes from the...

I've been happily going to Hotel Continental for about 1 year in a row now. The friendly staff always welcomes you with a smile and is happy to help. In addition to that; all rooms are great value for money. Another advantage is that it's located close to the Old town and Central station, with easy connection to the airport.

The hotel has a great location, it's very easy to walk to the train station. From there you can get anywhere you want in Switzerland or Europe. As are most things in Switzerland, cabs are very expensive. The hotel restaurant food quality was excellent and was the breakfast buffet.

Have stayed here more than 10 times and always have an excellent welcome. I usually am travelling with my large Anatolian Shepherd, Odin, and must say this is his favourite hotel. He almost gallops off the elevator looking for our room as he knows the staff will have left a treat for him. He especially appreciated his Christmas surprise treat!...

A very good hotel in a quiet place in a close proximity to the Zurich Bahnhof - just 5-6 minutes walk. Modern, with all necessary facilities. Impeccably clean, as everywhere in Switzerland. Great service - my card refused to work but a receptionist (a Spanish-speaking young man) knew how to make it work. And it was a real relief for...

Just a short walk from the very complicated to manoeuvre through train station to the hotel. It was so very Swiss. The multi-cultural staff at the hotel was friendly, depending on who you spoke with. When asking questions about taking the "S" commuter trains, we found the staff dismissive and unhelpful. They were able to offer little to no information...

I've stayed here more times than I care to remember, and it's been pleasant every time. The old-world, wooden interior may not be to everyone's liking, but I think it works really well and makes me feel at home. Staff are both friendly and helpful, and the rooms are perfect for relaxing after a busy day.
