Darien, Illinois108 contributions88 helpful votes
This is a very convenient budget option right in the center of town. It has two sections, both of which have elevators. We got a twin room, which was an adequate size. They also have a luggage storage room and small lounge. A continental breakfast with meat, cheese, pastries, juices, coffees, and some fruit is included. Breads seem to be fresh, unlike the frozen stuff we’re used to in the US. It is very convenient if you need to go to ETH, as it is adjacent to the polybahn (still worth going up for the good view), and there is also a Starbucks on the other side of the polybahn. It’s in an area where all the trams come, so public transport is extremely easy. If you get an Uber or other ride to the hotel, it’s best to use the back entry as it is hard to stop at the front. We were in the back building and it was not noisy at all.

This hotel is very old and run down. Rooms are tiny and furnishings are beat up. Entire hotel is really old and has not been maintained or upgraded since about 1880’s ! No hot water and reception could not care less about helping. Just got a shrug and a who cares? This hotel is run down, massively overpriced and not worth bothering with!

This is great value for money. For swiss standards, very cheap and the location couldnt be better. The breakfast is really nice, and to stay in the middle of the Niederdorf and right on the Limmat is really nice. I very much enjoyed our one night stay here. Limmathof is a wonderful hotel, with really good value for money.

A unique older hotel with a lot of old world charm. Incredibly close to the central train station & the “ old town “ ( tourist center ) . Room was moderate in size and bathroom was really spacious. TV slightly small , but tons of channels including English & CNN . No , A/C but not a concern during my stay , however , I could see it being if it were during a hot summer day . Breakfast room is cute with a little amount of items , but sufficient and well attended to. Only issue for me was it seemed a little costly for what it really offers, but I guess that’s Switzerland.

A lovely old hotel a stones throw from the river and just a ten minute walk from the railway station - a pleasant place to explore the city centre but ask for an extra pillow to ensure you get a good nights sleep.

I chose this hotel as it was the cheapest for my stay in Zurich. It is definitely a two star hotel with no frills so don’t expect anything more. It’s functional and clean. Decor is a little outdated but can’t expect more for the price you pay. Breakfast was basic but ok. Hotel receptionist when I checked in was lovely and very helpful

Wonderful service and great food! Each dish was presented well with kind wait staff explaining each of the menu items in English (American travelers). I’d recommend this place for a nice dinner with a lovely ambiance.

Location was important for us as we were arriving by rail and it was only a few minutes to walk from the main station to the hotel. It was a bit of a challenge to work out the best way to cross the complexity of tram tracks with our suitcases on wheels. All the staff that we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. Good range of food at breakfast. Good size of bedroom, which was very quiet, despite traffic passing in front of the hotel. For Switzerland, good value for money. Would happily stay again.

- Clean, simple and baisc facilities - at the centre, 5-15 mins walk (depends on how heavy the luggages) -very reasonable price in such location - Good to have the reception operating (this is one of the main reason i booked, as reading that many hotels of the price range use PINs, but reviews sugggested great problems by many users) - can be quite noisy as its at the centre of traffic and dinning hub especially in weekend (well, but that comes with convenience) - there was smell of smoking in the room, but cannot blame the hotel, its due to irresponsible clients - about 10 steps of stairs before arriving the reception where the lift is located - no boiler in the room, but can ask for hot water at the reception - the staff at the reception is very cheerful and helpful ( i guessed is the manager who stayed overnight in my case) - the building is old (around 100 years), there are some 'antique' appliances including telephone and radio which are quite interesting
