One of the best stays I had on my 14-night trip. Fed hotel is clean and just “upstairs”’of the train station. Very convenient esp since we were faced with a train strike in Germany, so making enquirers was easy. Its proximity to the bus station also allowed us to manage the strike better than otherwise as we could rest in its lobby till it was time to catch the late night bus. To top it all, Marcelle at reception was excellent- he really anticipated our needs and did his utmost to make us comfortable. We will surely come back

Dear Vguudeal, Thank you for your review. You have stayed at our partner Fred Hotel Hauptbahnhof, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are pleased to read that you particularly liked the location of our hotel, and that it helped you to manage the train strike. Being just a short walk from the main station makes it convenient for our guests to travel from the hotel to other towns and cities, whilst the close proximity to the bus station and the private tour companies it hosts allow for easy day trips out of the city as well. It is also great to see that you enjoyed the service you received from our staff. Our hotel is personally managed, and all of our team members are committed to delivering warm and attentive service that is catered to each guest. Moreover, whether it is ideas for which areas to explore, queries about hotel facilities, or a need to store luggage after check-out, our staff are always willing to answer any questions and ensure our guests are comfortable. We hope to see you again at our hotel in the future and look forward to welcoming you back once more. Kind regards, Claudia & Cedric, your hosts Fred Hotels Zürich

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed at the Alpine Rooms by Leoneck on 27-29 June 2022. The hotel is located about 400 meters from the train station. You can walk and it takes about 5-6 minutes. However it goes up hills, so if you don’t mind that, you can also take the Tram No. 6, 7 or 10 (this one is the best). The Alpine is their ‘self-check in hotel’ section. Make sure you have enough batteries. It’s very easy to check in with your phone which acts as the key. When you check out, just do that with your phone. Rooms a very clean and modern, excellent value proposition. I can also recommend their restaurant, great Swiss food for great price!

Dear fetscherin, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review for us. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay here at Alpine Rooms by Leoneck. Indeed, our hotel is ideally located just a 6-minute walk from Zurich's central station. The road to us leads slightly uphill from the main station; however, guests can easily reach us with tram lines 6 and 10. The Haldenegg stop is right in front of our entrance. We are glad that you admired our ideal address. We are glad you appreciated our completely digital hotel service, offering self-check-in. Our guests check in and out with their smartphones using a digital key activated on the day of arrival. Guests appreciate this hassle-free alternative, and we are delighted you did. It is also wonderful that you found our rooms offered comfort and convenience at attractive rates. Our housekeeping team strives to present beautiful and cozy spaces for our guests, so it was a pleasure to prepare your room for you. We hope you will come back to see us again when you are next in Zurich. It will be a pleasure to host you once again. Kind regards, Claudia & Cedric, your hosts Alpine Rooms by Leoneck

The hotel is only a short walk from the train station so we don't have to drag our heavy luggage too far. The room was clean but too small for the 3 of us. There was barely enough space for our luggage. The bathroom was a glass enclosed cubicle which was ok but the sliding door had no lock. The space again was a bit tight. There was an elevator but it was small and there were still steps leading up. There was kettle, coffee and tea. We did not take their breakfast. This was ok for us passing through for one night.

Dear Emily Thank you for your review. You have stayed at Fred Guest House Zürich Hauptbahnhof, not at Fred Hotel Leonhardstrasse. Nevertheless, we appreciate your feedback and are glad to read that you had a good stay overall. Firstly, we're delighted to hear that our convenient location near the train station was a positive aspect of your stay. However, we understand that some of our rooms may feel compact for some travellers. If you require more space, we can recommend staying at Fred Hotel Zürich Hauptbahnhof which offers rooms of a higher category. Furthermore, we have noted your feedback about the bathroom and the sliding door lock. Lastly, we're pleased to know that you found the in-room amenities suitable for your needs, and we hope that, despite the room size, you were able to enjoy a comfortable night's rest during your short stay. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. By the way, our breakfast with a wide spread of local products is always praised by our guests, we can recommend it for your next stay. Kind regards, Claudia & Cedric, your hosts Fred Hotels Zürich

The staff at this hotel must have thought Fawlty Towers was a training video. We arrived after a 30 hour flight from Australia and a day wandering around Zurich waiting for 3pm check in. We had prepaid for 8 nights. When we pressed the buzzer we were greeted with "why haven't you checked in online?" The obvious answer was because we had no access to internet. Reluctantly, we were let in and we checked in via the tablet. When I had trouble scanning my passport, I phoned the help line and was told I should have stayed at a hotel with a reception. I then went through the process to get a key card but there were no keycards available because no one had topped up the supply of cards. Not the way to greet guests who have paid up front to stay at your "hotel" This is an establishment where guests are treated as an inconvenience. The terrace was full of weeds and the umbrella and chairs were broken. The fridge was not fit for purpose and took 2 days to chill drinks. There was no iron for guests to use, instead guests are advised that they have to use the drycleaner at the railway station.

Dear donaxrd, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent stay at our hotel. We are a self-check-in hotel, allowing our guests to gain access to their room, and leave at the end of their stay, all from their smartphone, in just four easy steps. The team from Fred Hotel Hauptbahnhof are available for inquiries and to help where they can, however, if our guests require more assistance, staying in a hotel with a reception may be better suited to them. We appreciate your feedback regarding the terrace and chairs, as well as the fridge. Likewise, we are sorry to hear that there was a shortage of key cards during your stay. We have taken your valuable feedback on board to improve your experience and the experience of other guests in the future. Thank you once again for taking the time to provide us with your comments. We hope that you will allow us to welcome you back if your travels bring you to Zurich again. Kind regards, Claudia & Cedric, your hosts Fred Hotels Zürich

TL; DR: Strongly disliked the check-in/check-out experience, but the room was fine and the location was great. When my husband and I arrived at the hotel, we rang the bell to come inside. The staff who answered via the intercom were polite, but would not allow us entry until we had checked in via our phone. So, we stood outside on the front stoop attempting to check-in. I had international cell service, but for anyone without service, they wouldn’t be able to check-in this way. For some reason the self check-in wasn’t working despite my having cell service, so we called the intercom again to ask to be let in and check-in on the iPad stationed just inside the entry way. Thankfully, that method of self check-in worked correctly, but our room was not available yet (we arrived before 3pm). This is our own ignorance, but we did not realize that a self check-in hotel meant that there are literally no staff physically present. That meant we needed to call again to inquire where to store our bags until our room was available. There are hotel lockers in the entryway, but the mobile key for them was not working either, so the hotel suggested we take our bags to the train station. When we let them know our bags were too big to fit in the train station lockers (my husband had a bike in a bag), they let us store our bags in their office on the second floor. It was nice of them to make this storage exception for us, but the hassle was an annoyance. When we checked out, staff again suggested to store our bags at the train station, but we were already headed to a lunch at a hotel, so we stored our bags with that other hotel instead. The room was clean, large enough with plenty of storage, had a comfortable bed, and we enjoyed having AC. The bathroom was clean and functional, but no glass encasing for the shower - just a curtain - was not pleasant as water would get all over all parts of the bathroom floor. We loved the location, very close to old town and multiple bus/tram stops.

Our rooms are designed to be spacious and flow smoothly, whilst our beds are carefully selected to provide our guests with a great night's sleep and recuperation after a busy day of sightseeing or business meetings. It is also good to hear that you enjoyed the location of our hotel. Being within walking distance of multiple tram and bus stops makes it easy to get to and from our hotel, whilst there also numerous restaurants and cafés to enjoy nearby. We apologise for the inconvenience you experienced when checking in.

Big clean rooms (at least for me) and in a good location. They were also responsive when i asked multiple questions. Although i wished the instructions for wifi was clearer (it was a small sign near the lift) Probably the only gripe would be that i had wished for a shower glass instead of a shower curtain.

I booked the suite with terrace for approx £200/night. Decent temperature, comfortable bed, some nice touches overall, but for the price, it was really missing some core things to make it worth this price. I guess you're just paying for location. The wifi was very poor and needs improving. You cannot access wifi from certain "dead spots" at random locations within the room and definitely not from the Terrace. The kettle was missing so you couldn't make tea. There is a coffee machine but it puts bits into the water (which is fine in your coffee but not your tea). The toiletries absolutely stripped your skin, making it extremely dry. There were some renovation works taking place without prior notification (a paper notice went up on the day, after some guy was creeping around outside my room, waking me up). Having said all that, I would book this place again, just for location alone and excellent benefit of not having to deal with staff at reception - you use a code to access the building and then use a tablet to check in. You can have a key card if you want, but otherwise as long as you can connect to the hotel wifi then you can use your phone to open all the doors.

There is no reception desk, no one around. You use an app to get into the hotel and into your room and see no one at all. No housekeeping, no map, no tourist voucher. But it is easy to get there from the airport on the #10 train and the location is good. Room was small but nicely furnished. Room facing the street was noisy

Dear bjaneh, Thank you for taking the time to offer this feedback to us. Indeed, here at Alpine Rooms by Leoneck, we believe reception to be a thing of the past. Instead, we have developed a convenient self-check-in service that allows guest to easily and quickly access their rooms. Our guests appreciated this seamless process. We are sorry if it did not meet your expectations. While we do not have staff on-site, the team at Walhalla Hotel is always ready to assist our guests via phone or intercom, 24/7. Our location is fantastic and easy to find. We are a 6-minute walk from Zurich Main Station, and tram lines 6 and 10 stop right in front of the hotel entrance door. Our guests find our location very convenient; we are pleased you did. We are also glad that you enjoyed your room with its comfortable furnishings. While our rooms may be compact, they offer all the facilities and comfort you need to stay in central Zurich. We apologize if the ambient noise from the street could be heard from your room. Usually, our guests find that our triple-glazed windows offer them peace. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope that you will come back and see us again. It would be a delight to welcome you back when you are next in Zurich. Kind regards, Cedric, your host Alpine Rooms by Leoneck

I booked a Comfort Double room with included breakfast for a one-night stay while traveling. I arrived by train before flying out from the Zürich airport the next morning. This hotel is very easy to reach by tram from the Zürich Hauptbahnhof, and is within a few minutes walking distance if you don't have heavy luggage. The hotel is uphill from the train station. The Haldenegg tram stop is directly in front of the hotel. The staff were friendly, and the room was clean and pleasant. Everything in the room worked properly. This is a convenient place to stay while traveling, and the value was very good for the area.
