At least my room you entered through the bathroom, which is somewhat odd, and not ideal if outside it is rainy or snowy. The room was nice and clean, good wifi and a very nice breakfast buffet. Also an easy walking distance from the centre and well connected if you need to go to ETH honggerberg.

Dear Katrien S, Many thanks for taking the time to give some feedback. We are very glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. It is right that we have 3 rooms where you enter through the bathroom. Some people like this room so much that they want always the same room for every stay with us. If you...

Sadly we only had one night at this lovely hotel. Bit of an uphill work from the train station but well worth it. Room was good, staff extremely helpful, we had trouble accessing the internet but with the help of the staff we finally got it going. Breakfast was yummy and catered for most peoples needs. Definately would stay here...

I had stayed here before and was really glad to choose Rex again. If, for some reason, you do not like an idea to spend $ 500 - 600 per night in 4 or 5 star hotels in the very heart of Zurich, then pay attention to Rex. Location is pretty good, it took me only 15 mins to get...

We liked absolutely everything. We will recommend this hotel to our friends. If we will go to Zurich one more time then we will choose his hotel for sure. The brekfast was really tasty.

Dear Oleksandr O, We would like to thank you for the great comment that we were able to receive. It is true - from the centre it is uphill to get to us but we also have two tram lines which stop just in front of the hotel so on hot/cold/rainy days it is fast and easy to get to...

Clean, spacious rooms, a sumptous spread for breakfast, comfortable bed and stylish decor are typical of decent hotels. Hotel Rex has all of the aforementioned points. But what took me by surprise is how attentive the hotel's staff are in catering to the needs of customers. We had missed our flights earlier in the day and ended up reaching hotel...

I was staying in Rex Hotel the second time. It is an excellent hotel -- taking into accounts the ratio price/quality, distance to the Center of the city and railway station and as well as the level of hotel’s price in Zurich. Good breakfast, nice and friendly staff, an excellent location. I think that I will stay here again when...

Zurich is a town of hills. You will learn that quickly. It's close to the train, trams are right outside. Good news about this hotel is that it's downhill to the centre of town. Uphill hurts less after an evening of good food and drinks! Solid breakfast, worth the money. Service was excellent and rooms were very good. It is...

This hotel is located close to public transport, I had a basic room which was clean, comfortable size, good bathroom facilities and a great cold buffet breakfast including fresh fruit, yoghurt, variety of cheeses, cereal, range of teas and coffee machine. The staff were friendly and helpful. Laundry is expensive but in line with what most hotels charge.

The best of this hotel was its staff, everybody was really friendly and helpful, then the breakfast was the second best of this hotel: fresh fruit, excellent expresso coffee machine, juices, yogurt, different kind of breads, fillings and swiss cheese.
