We spent one night in the Sorell Hotel. The hotel is located right near the train station which is handy. It's well located to access most parts of the central city by foot. The hotel is nice and has everything you'd need. The bathroom was small but did the job. The coffee machine in the room and free bottled water...

It is approximately 2 blocks from the train station. The room has a safe, several English speaking tv channels, good storage for my things, and the bed was comfortable. There is a breakfast buffet starting at 0630 every morning, which is nice, so one can get out the door to the train station at a good time. There are places...

Good location close to Railway Station, staff were friendly and helpful, room size was good and views were okay. WiFi was free and worked well. Bed was good and nice pillows. Breakfast was quite good with a variety of options although some trays were slow at being topped up. Very expensive for what you got but isn't everything in Switzerland....

I have come to the conclusion that i will only book 4 star hotels from now on while in Europe. 3 stars just don't cut it. I choose this hotel for it's location--close to the train station, although with luggage, it felt like quiet a hike. The location of this hotel felt a little uncomfortable to me, the neighborhood was...

Chose the Sorell Hotel for my 2 night stay as I wanted to be near the station & be able to explore Zurich from a central base. This is a small hotel with a bar and breakfast room. Staff were lovely....always friendly & able to answer all of my queries. My room was spacious & clean & WiFi worked well...

This hotel was great, and I really only have one negative. Our room was in the corner on the 4th floor, and due to the time of year, the air conditioning was not active which means you need to have your windows open at night (the outside air was very cool). This would not have been a problem at all...

I travel alot... on various budgets - in cheap places but also in luxury hotels. Given that I now have children, and I chose to work less in order to spend time with them, my budget is more modest.
